Title: Easily Bored

Kite is in a job interview. It may be the future, but job interviews still look painfully similar. Or similarly painful. She doesn’t seem to be taking it terribly seriously.

Her spaceship is headed directly toward a massive sun and is in the process of exploding in an incandescent, spectacular fashion.
She has only two words to describe the sight: “Fucking. Awesome.”

Kite responds brightly, “I’m easily bored.”
