1908.03 – DDOP.03 – Little Fears

Robot head looking front on camera isolated on a black background


#Audio. #Flashfic.  A Basil and Zoe story. Zoe has lots of little fears…


Then, too, she isn’t always certain she’s cut out for normal life. She’s never really learned how to live in one place all the time, and even when she was on the ship with Basil, he was going on remote missions. Their time together is counted in days and hours, not in weeks, months, years, and she can’t imagine what it would be like if she… stopped.
