Review – The Mundane World
For a prompt about ordinary life, I decided to make Eriecho an amateur gardener. This made some sense, as prisoners these days and in the past have certainly tended gardens, either as a part of their rehabilitation or as trusty work or even to just get better food by growing it themselves.
At the Martian sanctuary, Eriecho tends her garden.
At the next plot, the youth Sollastek does the same. When he accidentally touches her hand, she senses his attraction to her.
They trade some of their produce and agree to meet and discuss gardening, even as the Martian sanctuary’s contingent of Vulcan matrons look on disapprovingly.
The story is rated K.
Sollastek did not exist before this story was written. He was a great, defiant character to introduce, an unexpected ally for Eriecho and Saddik.
