"Departure" a five minute freewrite


This is the freewrite challenge. I am a little behind so today I am using @mariannewest’s #freewrite prompt to write this piece (https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mariannewest/day-516-5-minute-freewrite-wednesday-prompt-departure)

Today’s prompt is:


"Flight 4302 to Earth, please head to Departure Gate K. Flight 4302 to Earth, please head to Departure Gate K."

Plum looked at Falcon.

"This is it," she said. Falcon smiled at her, but she could tell he was sad. The smile was false. He didn't want her to go, any more than she did.

"Off you go," he said, his voice light but quavery.

Plum wondered if he was going to cry. She had never seen Falcon cry, she hadn't really thought it possible. She smiled and leaned forward to kiss him. He stepped back.

"Best not." And Plum could see a tear well in his eye. He nodded at the security bot that was circling around them, it's stalky eye peering at them. "Don't want to attract attention."

Plum nodded.

"Aye, aye, captain, Sir!" she clipped her heels together and gave him a salute. Falcon laughed, and, before she turned her back on him, Plum saw the tear begin to roll down his cheek.


As usual I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):
