Book 2: The Teraport Wars
Part III: Through the Roof


Hob:Squad 'B' has been drilling with the pots an' trees all day. They've got it down.
Hob:Teachin' these amorphs is fun. You've got a great job, Lady Emily.
Lady Emily:It's a labor of love. Like any teaching position, the salary is crummy.
Hob:Could be worse, right?
Lady Emily:I haven't gotten a paycheck in thirteen years.
Hob:But you get to play in the mud, right?
Lady Emily:Thirteen years.
