Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part V: Command and Conquer

Note: The series of events surrounding Mushi's cat is chronicled in the bonus story "Mad Scientist's Residence," in Schlock Mercenary: Resident Mad Scientist. Why yes, you should buy that book just for the bonus story... but you don't have to in order to appreciate the current chapter.


GEN. TAGON: Reflex or no, I don't regret coming to help you, kid.

GEN. TAGON: I've owed you one ever since you helped me get Mushi's cat out of my yard.

CAPT. KEVYN: Cat in the yard, armed abduction... yeah, those totally balance out.

CAPT. KEVYN: Besides, I made a huge mess over that cat.

GEN. TAGON: And I made a mess of this.  See?  We're even.
