Barney, the radio talk show host: Welcome dear listeners, to another episode of “5 questions for…”! Today we sit down with one of Emerald One’s most deadly personalities, United Space Force pilot and flying ace Baroness Adelie von Klaiber. Welcome Baroness, how do you you do?
Adelie: Hello Barney, I fine.
Barney: Let us jump right in, with our very first question. It’s a classic. If you could only take three things to a remote island, what would that be, and why?
Adelie: Oh dear. First thing, impractical as it might seem, would be the concert grand. I never go anywhere without my beloved instrument. Second would be that chest of books I never had time to read since I’m not on nightshifts anymore. Now for the third thing… remote island sounds quite tropical and sunny, so I better pack enough sunscreen, or my sensitive skin would be burnt in no time.
Barney: Yes, my skin is also very sensitive, since it got used to this dark space life. Alrighty, that was our first question, here is the second one. Since you mentioned a chest of books… what is your favourite book?
Adelie: Oh, that’s an easy one: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Barney: Really? You astonish me, I never thought that a tough cookie like you would read romance.
Adelie: It reminds me very much of the life I left behind and don’t want to go back to.
Barney: Oh… you sure are full of surprises. Let us get to our third question: Where would you like to go on an extended holiday?
Adelie: Well, I see a lot of magnificent places all the time, due to carrying our esteemed scientists to and from Imion Beta, but I’d really like to spend some time on the third moon of Barnaby Zeta. It’s such an enchanted place, I have never seen anything quite like it. Flowers as big a bathtubs, trees so huge words fail them…
Barney: Sounds exciting indeed. Our next question is, as we’re all chronically overworked: What’s your best recipe against stress?
Adelie: Oh yeah – who’s not constantly stressed out around here? After a really long and hard day, I don’t do much besides filling up a bubble bath, putting some Beethoven on the stereo and soak until I’m shrivelled up like a dried prune. If the day was just long, I go to my favourite malt shop and order a tall Root Beer Float.
Barney: Oh, Root Beer Floats, I like those too! For our last and final question, I’d like to know what’s your favourite guilty pleasure?
Adelie: – laughs – You mean, besides indulging in Floats way too often? You know that little bakery on the N-level? It’s tucked behind one of those big sandwhich bars. They make a really mean chocolate cake, which is still gooey on the inside, and so so good.
Barney: And that’s it. Thank you very much Baroness, for dropping in on your tight schedule, and have a safe next flight.
Adelie: Thank you Barney, for having me. It was great fun!
