It has been twenty-years years since Alex and Maggie had thundered off into the stars from Starlight Star bright Trailer Park, when Alex had returned to Earth to land in his Gunstar to pick up Maggie. He and Grig had just won the battle against the Kodan, and had stood beside their Gunstar, a few hours ago, with Ambassador Enduran and Centauri as they stared down at the crowd of celebrating Rylans for victory. Five years after they had left, however, there was a surprise. As Alex sat in the office, as soon as he arrived, had overseen the mass production of Gun Stars in three shifts and began the search for candidates that would operate these ships. As the candidates came in he worked long hours to train them with Grig and brought them quickly up to a crash course speed, quickly mounting to have a defense for Rylos if the Kodan mounted a new offensive. Every night he held Maggie in his arms and Alex peered in her eyes, as they laughed and she talked about the new position in Headquarters she was training for, and they made love often, both in love and glad to be with each other. Both did not know of a drastic change that would change their lives however, that Maggie was a month pregnant with twins, and Alex was the father. When she did not feel well and she had found out in the Rylos Command Sick bay, her astonishment could be heard down the hall as she read the report. “Are you sure doctor?” “There is absolutely no doubt, for human physiology.” He said, and chortled at her look, as she read it several times. “Twins, Are you sure?” He smiled, seeing her astonishment. “What's the matter Ms. Gordon,” He said, “They are very healthy and strong at this point.” There was laughter as Maggie glanced at the expression on Alex's bemused face. He was totally not expecting this, to be a father so young. Maggie mock glared at him and he grimaced as he shrank back. She smiled at his reaction and began to laugh, reaching out to motion to him, as she embraced him warmly. “God, I love you Alex.” She told him and they held each other starting into each other's eyes. But that was now twenty-years ago and a lot had changed: Kyle is the son of Alex and Maggie, and his sister, his twin both born on Rylos. They both had joined the Star League when they were eighteen, both in their early twenties now. He is the spitting image of Alex, brownish blond hair, slender, but stocky with blue eyes and the square jaw of his father. He now was in charge of continuing to rebuild and do the work that Alex had started to do before his death, rebuild the Star League. “This isn't going to be easy.” He muttered, as he glanced over a set of forms on the desk, and reaching out with a shaking hand, pushed the report aside before turning to the cabinet in his father's office. Kyle pulled out a glass and poured a reddish liquid from the strange bottle into it. Corking the bottle, he took a belt of the alcoholic beverage that was strong, burning the back of his throat. “Doggone, this isn't going to be an easy funeral either.” He thought, “I have to contact Grandma and tell her. She's going to be a bit pissed.” “Drinking won't bring them back Kyle.” A voice said, and turning he glanced at the door blearily, staring at Lewis Rogan, his uncle, clad in the same brown tan uniform trimmed in dark brown. On his arm is the squadron patch of sector two where he had been assigned, having the gift and eventually being recruited to the Star League too. His hair was the same brown, sprinkled with the first hints of gray in it, and sporting a thick Vandyke beard and heavyset slightly despite being in his early thirties now. Beside him, Kyle's sister, Amanda stood with their uncle. She wore a white uniform skirt and the uniform top, Click here to read the rest of this story (1091 more lines)
