     "Captain," a twenty-something crew member burst into the captain's quarters.  "The radar has detected a ship following us."
     Nova Rae stared at her breakfast, not wanting to look as if she was listening to their conversation.
     "Did it say who it belonged to?" Captain Antoinette said.
     "No, captain.  It came up as 'private'."
     There is technology that can do that?
     Captain Antoinette slammed her fist on the table.  "It must be the authorities.  I'm coming up there." She got up and left.
     Nova Rae released the breath she did not know she was holding.  She didn't eat anything else.
     The captain's food was left on the table until it was cold.  No one knew when she would be back.       

Nova Rae waited for a while, not sure what to do with herself.  Should she get up and leave?  Should she stay and wait?
     What was her the captain doing?
     Curiosity got the better of her and she went up on deck.  Sure enough, a shiny silver ship followed them.  It wasn't like any ship she had ever seen.  In fact, it wasn't shaped like a normal ship at all.            Maybe space ships were like that.
     Nova Rae glanced up to where the captain stood barking orders.
     "Evasive maneuver 32!" Captain Antoinette shouted.
     The ship lurched to the left.  Nova Rae yelped.  It lurched right.
     "Surrender, now!" The voice came from the ship that was following them.   "Surrender you and your ship, Captain Antoinette."
     The captain bellowed more orders.  "Don't do as they say.  Keep doing evasive maneuvers."
     "You have twenty seconds to surrender or we will open fire."
     Nova Rae's stomach turned over.  Surrender, Mom.  Please.
     "Prepare the cannons," Captain Antoinette said.  There would be no surrender.
     There would be a fight.
There will not be an episode next week due to me being on vacation.

Tally ho!  Cheery bye!  Until we next meet!
