100 word story – apology

Dear ship,
It’s me, your captain. Okay, you old decrepit…. I mean graceful and oh so amazing ship.
I am ever so sorry that I called you a moldy old rustbucket. You are beautiful and oh so pretty and so very powerful and strong.
I also shouldn’t have said that you are ready for the scrap heap when we return to earth.
You are a good ship. A brave ship. Any captain would be proud to serve on you.
Now will you please start your fucking engines and go back to earth?

With all due respect and shit,
Captain James
