Summary

"An aged Kirk, waiting at home while his bondmate is away at a seminar, befriends a neighbor woman and her young son."

Reactions and Reviews

A wonderfully sweet story, Kirk and Spock have been bonded for many years. They are now professors at a University on a low gravity planet in deference to Kirk’s physical needs as he ages. Nice short back-story to explain why Kirk would give up the swashbuckling life to settle down in this role and Spock’s part in his decision. A new professor/neighbor moves into his apartment building and the story is seen mainly through the eyes of a new neighbor when Kirk befriends her two small boys. The mother is intrigued by Kirk but has no clue about his identity. Spock is away on a trip to a seminar and is hurt on the way back. The writing is poignant and sweet and I really enjoy seeing Kirk through someone else’s viewpoint. And I enjoy the graceful portrayal of an aging Kirk. My only complaint is the story ends abruptly when Spock returns. [1]
