Hands Across the Sky
by John R. Plunkett

This particular story is rather difficult to explain because the idea behind it didn't fall form any specific stimuli. I had just completed The Ties that Bind and Night's Daughter. I was working on Darkest Night and Star Dancer. I was taking a break from writing, organizing my collection of cat pictures. Somehow, out of all that, this story was born. The hardest part was coming up with a title.
