  Dear mom and dad,
  I know that I said I wouldn’t write until tomorrow but I had bestest news ever. I got a job. It is just a deck hand position on the Basura. It doesn’t pay much on the first trip, but, Captain Jack’s agent told me that no one gets paid their first time out into the black, because of all the turn over. If I do well I will have half wages on the second trip  and each trip after that until I prove my worth.
  Thanks for not giving up on me.
  One thing I noticed, this afternoon was that Falcon lifted off out of Borha, I had never seen the ship fly. For as long as I can remember it has sat there in the city. Must be something going on with the war. It looked beautiful going through the atmosphere as the dirt fell off her from the years of setting on the ground.
  This message didn’t cost me anything, Mrs. Hicks was kind enough to let me write you and tell you all about my job and what I saw.
Well, I need to be going, Love you,
