Alexei is a free Soul, only 19, who travels the globe, charting his adventures in his airship, doing occasional deliveries for some friends. He loves life, and despises the Old Worlds, who killed his parents. On a cargo trip, he meets another 19 year old, Hugo. They both see a twinkle in each other’s eyes, but Hugo confesses that his parents had never let him live before, and especially not with a New World such as Alexei. But Alexei finds ways to talk with Hugo, and they hit it off. But then Hugo’s parents find out, and turn out to be fairly influential to the Old World people. What will they do?
