A week later, Star Boy and Dream Girl were dancing on an elevated platform in the nightclub known as the Pleasuredome. They were thrilled to have some rare quiet time to enjoy being alone together.
“You know, I’m glad Lu and Chuck got away all right,” said Nura Nal. “They need time to heal and forget what they’ve suffered. I see only good things for them, now that they’ve taken leave from the Legion Academy. Rokk can handle their duties easily.”
“I agree,” said Thom Kallor. “They’ve earned some time to get back to normal, but I’m glad they agreed to return to the academy in time. I think that second burial service for Lu’s third body on Shanghalla took a lot out of her.”
Nura smiled and said, “Well, look on the bright side for a change. Nekron is defeated. The Dark Man is no more. The remnants of the Fatal Five are imprisoned securely this time. You’ve done a great job, leader man!”
Thom smiled slightly and kissed her as they swayed to the music. He said, “You know, you’re right! I think things are finally going my way!”
