Book 5: The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance — Part III: Handle With Care


Narrator: Mission accomplished. It's time to get paid.
Kreely Employer: Excellent work, Captain Tagon.

As agreed, your pay has been transferred directly into your account.

Tagon: Out of curiosity, what's going to happen to all these non-sentient Kreelies we returned to you?
Kreely Employer: The usual. . . They'll serve as breeders, or as meat animals, and their young will go on the market as delicacies.
Tagon: Um, isn't that what we just rescued them from?
Kreely Employer: Who said anything about rescue? You're just helping us maintain our monopoly.
