Lovely girl, Tessa Perry, born Aforementioned Afterthought, became quite the not - beautiful, elegant, carrying a soft voice and an instant love for Sherkin Island, Ireland, 21st century, the 29th era The Due Return passed through. Tessa became infatuated with Earth-based human culture, the sharing of music and art, watching live performances within The Jolly Roger Pub and learning to platy guitar and write songs herself.
She met a friend in Baltimore and they called themselves Lonely and The Moose, Tessa was The Moose. Soon after, Tessa learned of another Earth-based human dillemma: love.
A young man named Mick Flannery, writer of music and playing of instruments himself, took Tessa Perry to Dublin and also took her virginity. They fell in love, deep in love, and after two years of being together emerged the truest of love’s dillema: Should I stay or should I go now?
Tessa knew the ship would be leaving. Most crew members were able to sense such things. Mick contemplated boarding the ship, and Tessa contemplated staying behind, but neither happened. Instead, Mick and Tessa continued down their separate paths as The Due Return traveled into the 30th era.
Tessa misses Sherkin Island, and she misses it dearly. Her bunk is a blessing yet also a curse - constant reminder of the most amazing place she ever lived, and the most amazing man she ever loved.
