Speaking of the soldier’s, things like this get your attention. Vid and the soldier were sitting on the couch next to each other looking like a matched set… the Tauri.
“You’re drinking coffee,” Vid said.
“Yeah. I am. Do you know when I had my first coffee?” the soldier asked. “I had my first cup of coffee when I was just a few weeks old, except for it wasn’t in a cup, it was in a bottle. I was a baby so I had to drink out of a bottle.”
“Yeah, see my mom was a mom. And I was crying and crying and crying and crying. (His mother is a nurse). And she tried everything she could to get me to stop crying and I mean she tried everything in the world. Everything that could be tried, she tried.”
Vid grinned, he likes the soldier’s stories.
“Yeah so she was about to give up. There was just no way to get me to stop crying but then she decided to try one more thing. She put some coffee in my milk and as soon as she did that, I drank it down and went right to sleep.”
“Yeah. So she kept doing it and I kept sleeping. Whenever she wanted me to go to sleep she gave me some coffee I was a happy baby after that. I guess I was just born and wanted a cup. Soldiers lovvvve coffee, they can never really have enough.”
Vid just stared.
