THE OTHER SUNSTRIKE
I got a hyperspace message from my older brother Reggie today. He's invited me to the award ceremony where he is receiving his THIRD Legion of Heroism medal. Not that he ever showed up to my Punctuality Award presentation ... sure it was just sent by space courier, but it would have been nice to have family there when the GUPS man arrived at that triumphant moment. Just because Reginald's ship, the GSV Republic, is the flagship of the Galactic Union, he thinks he's so much better than me. Sure, when HE causes a sun to go supernova, and it wipes out an insidious alien being intent on destroying the galaxy, he's hailed as a savior to mankind. But when I blow up a star it's a stern reprimand! Reggie was always the favorite. If Dad were still alive ... I bet he'd STILL blame me for his death.
