Another female human scoundrel, married to Corso
Miriah looked over at Corso, who was sleeping soundly. Man, I wish I could sleep like that, she thought. This had been a particularly sleepless week. They had made multiple resupply runs to Republic bases, and the entire crew was tired. She'd gotten up at least once every night, and Corso was not even surprised anymore to find her asleep at the bridge, or in the cargo hold, when he would go looking for her.
She sighed softly, then got up and wandered to the lounge. Hmm, where did these flickering lights come from, she thought. As she got closer, she could see that the lights were artificial candles, and they were set around a beautiful silver platter of assorted chocolates. There were roses, two perfect white ones, beside a bottle of wine to the side. She caught her breath, then saw the note beside the roses.
"Happy early birthday, darling. When you've enjoyed your treats, come back to bed and wake me up, we'll continue the celebration. Love you much, Corso"
Oh, how she loved that man!
Love is the strongest magic of them all.
