FROM: Lt. Jean Talvert
SUBJECT: RE: Invitation

Listen, we have better things to be worrying about right now.

You were mad, I was mad, we're both scared, and the work hasn't stopped coming at us.

Neither of us have time for complications like this, the last thing I want is our friendship to be impacted in any way.

When I took control of my first fighter, I was a scared teenager with so much sweat that I got a heat rash under my helmet. When I waxed my first pirate, I threw up in the cockpit.

It takes time to control the adrenaline and carry the weight of being a hero. You've done incredible things, Casey, but you're still human. I'm glad to see you know that.

You buy the drinks.
