This is Sky Captain. I'm on my way.

My first day aboard the Excelsior,
Being the only female aboard meant this was going to get difficult,
What with all the men and whatnot.
I was excited.
Of all these men,
That's right,
The pilot of this magnificent airship!

As I passed onto the bridge,
The Captain's gaze caught mine.
He's no older than I am!
I thought.
And he was.
Blue eyes,
He was looking right at me!

I huffed and pushed my way past him,
I couldn't get involved with him at all beyond the point of being the pilot,
What am I thinking?!
I don't even know if he likes me!
Do I like him?!
What is going on?!
I shook m head and advanced the bridge.
Little did I know,
My journey with him was just beginning.
