The Adventures of the Sulky Slut – Part 5

Part 5

“Geez, this place is really packed today, isn’t it?” Nole said as the Sulky Slut cruised through the lanes of Parking Lot K on the south side of Port Europa. Bright billboards lined either side of the huge deck, where dozens of midsized ships were parked, from chrome-plated pleasure cruisers to RV-like family starwagons covered in bumper stickers.

“Well, when we paid for our parking, the Slut‘s computer downloaded a pamphlet about things to do and see in the Port,” Chase said, clicking through the pamphlet on his computer screen. “Says here, today is Division Day. All these ships must be here for the celebrations.”

“Ah, yes, division: the most hallowed of mathematical operations,” Nole said with an air of ceremony.

“Uh, no, not division. Division from Sultaives. Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the Europan citizens’ cessation from Sultaives Station. They have parades and fireworks and everything today.”

“But weren’t they kicked out?” Alena said from her place by the coffeemaker. “For being lawless hooligans?”

“Generally, yes, that’s how the story goes, just don’t say that to a Europan,” Chase answered.

Nole nodded. “So… they’re like the rednecks of space.”

Chase shook his head. “Nope. Don’t say that either.”

“Ugh, fine, Mr. PC. The country music lovers of space.”

“Hey, I like country music,” Alena said, crossing her arms.

“Really? Hm. Well, you can be our diplomatic representative to the redne- excuse me- country music lovers of Port Europa. Oh, there’s a spot! Get it! Right there! Get it now!” Nole said as he pointed excitedly.

Chase repressed a sigh and pulled the Sulky Slut into the parking spot.
