Chapter 2

     My father, Jonathan Pierce, went missing four years ago when he went looking for Earth.

     I remember the night before my father left. My parents were arguing.

     "Jonathan, you can't go. I can't take care of the children by myself."

     "Abigail, you have to trust me. I'll come back."

     "But what if you don't?" my mother yelled. That had scared me. Mother never yelled. She started to cry. She never cried.

     That night I had found it hard to sleep. Father came in my room.

     "Father, promise me you'll come back."

     He kissed my forehead. "I will, my dear Scarlett. I promise."

     "Cross your heart?"

     "Cross my heart." He held up his hand and crossed his heart.



     The next morning, I was wearing my best dress. As I watched my father climb the ladder onto the ship, I looked at him.

     He crossed his heart.
