Thomas took her hand, allowing his five fingers to thread through her three fingers. "I don't care. I love you. Nothing can change that."
Aida lowered her green eyes. "But what if you're banished from the colony?"
Thomas smiled. "As long as I have you, nothing else matters."
Aida smiled, and the two of them embraced in a passionate kiss as the two suns glowed on the horizon.
