Book 13: Random Access Memorabilia — Part III: Execute


NARRATOR: Mall-One, the General's story continues...

GEN. TAGON: Packing a human being with a killer swarm of weaponized nannies is cruel, whether or not your mule knows what they're getting into.

Kaff's girlfriend shuddered, like she was having a seizure.

Her eyes rolled all the way back, her mouth locked wide open, and she whimpered once.

The first thing I did was deploy my helmet.

The first thing my Mirali did was rush to the girl's side.

GEN. TAGON: Gods and monsters, kiddo.  I don't think I can do this.

KATHRYN: When was the last time you told this story?

GEN. TAGON: The first and the last time was when I was debriefed.

KATHRYN: So it's been a while.

GEN. TAGON: You didn't say "old" but I think you still owe me a beer for that remark.

KATHRYN: Beer is for picnics and pissing matches.  I brought bourbon.

GEN. TAGON: Did you bring any for you?
