I'll make something...

...since the invitation set a kroner limit on gifts." Elizabeth mused.

"That's creative, Liz, and something to do during the rest of the journey, but why make something?" Evelynn asked.

"Its will be unique." Elizabeth stated, "everyone else will buy something, or have it made, but if this is about impressing them. Something unique is going to work better."

"He's your age, Liz, I doubt he'll have an appreciation for handcrafts."

Elizabeth shrugged, "Maybe? maybe not. Maybe he'll see it as trash-but he's a Royal Scion, anything that can be bought for twelve thousand kroner is going to be trash for him, so it's...what's the word?"

"Symbolic. what do you have in mind?"

The girl frowned. "Boys don't like jewelry...but, the boys I've met so far on air-breaks and gravity leaves like to play with guns. I'll make a gun."

"Richard Cameron was murdered with a 'gift gun' Liz, that's not the right kind of gift." Evelynn stated.

"Oh," Lizzie was crestfallen. "I don't know what-"

"Even boys can appreciate art."

"RIGHT!! and gadgets!!"

"Remember we only have sixty days until we reach Tharkad, Liz." Evelynn cautioned, "Isn't htat right, Tabiranth?"

"Fifty four days, but you're essentially correct, Leutnant Mosovich." the AI stated.

"I'll be in the machine shop!!" Liz announced.

"Not before you've finished your lessons you won't!" Evelynn barked, "history paper, get on it!"


"No buts. wWe both agree you need to keep up with your peers in that." Tabiranth's remote stated. "You can do your art project AFTER your homework."
