Velocity was too high and from the wrong direction for the two spacecraft to dock.
Even with all the acceleration he had at his fingertips, the joining would not be successful.
Considering the impulse they were about to experience, he shouted, “Brace yourselves!”
The impact caused them to increase angular momentum, spinning them and the forces pinned them hard against their seats.
Observing their attempted destination spin away into the void, he fired the thrusters to arrest the erratic rotation.
Rockets fired and the spacecraft slowed in the gravitational field it floated in.
So, you thought I would lapse in my attentiveness, and then you would give me the underdress.
Lilly, what are you blundering about this time?
It makes no difference, I found the small dock you parked your getaway dingy at!
Perhaps before you verbally stumble some more you should hand over the thesaurus.
Looking at what her choices were, she touched the cold steel behind her back
Ashley stripped off her most of her clothes and slipped into the lake
Shivers from the cold water caused her skin to pucker
Trembles continued down her arms as she began to swim for the dock
Charlie couldn’t believe his eyes
Here was his dream coming true
Ashley was coming to meet him, alone, on his terms
Not in his wildest fantasies did he think this would ever happen
Catching his first glimpse of her coming out of the water
Everything moved in slow motion as she stabbed him literally in the heart
Tell me a story and make it quack
You mean like a dock
Perhaps one about a tug boot
Okay, but only one duck leg at a thyme
