Next installment ... Chapter 3 - Lander Station

I just posted Chapter 3 of the story to the right.

On Lander Station, Meriel meets with her lawyer and her Aunt Teddy to figure out what to do to save the Princess, from the scrap heap. John helps her defend against thugs, and she learns more about John and his home colony. Her crew gets tangled up in a bar fight with a rival crew and Meriel needs to bail them out. On leaving Lander, Teddy sends Meriel a book that once belonged to Meriel's grandmother...
