Sample text

Sometimes that’s terrifying, and sometimes it’s reassuring, a promise of homecoming. ” More explosions light that bloody glow in the distance. We’re too far from ground zero to hear the booms or feel the earth shake; the Morgut are moving off now, systematically destroying the defenseless resorts and private homes. I wonder if the civilians had any real warning, or if they went from relaxing massage to dying in abject terror. There are no RDIs—Residential Defense Installations—here, no ground resistance at all, apart from Hit and me.

The nanites haven’t had a chance to finish repairing all the damage I did during the long immersion in grimspace while I reprogrammed the beacons. So I merely shake my head. Hit seems to understand my limitations, as she drops the suggestion without argument. “If I rest some, I can keep up with you later,” I add. ” Fortunately, we’re on a hospitable planet, not like Lachion or Ithiss-Tor. We can find fruit and freshwater nearby. The insects and hungry indigenous life will make survival a challenge, but it’s not insurmountable.

My stomach threatens to rebel, and Hit quells me with a sharp look. “Keep it down. ” Even in infirmity, she has more determination than I do. I admire the hell out of this woman. We’re both lean as blades now; I could cut myself on her collarbones, but someone will come soon. The battle has to be over by now. They must know we’re on Venice Minor, somewhere. If they got our message. If anyone survived to hear it. Someone will come. I repeat that refrain for the next two days. By this time, Hit is strong enough to move again.
