Book 14: Broken Wind — Part I: Breath and Business


NARRATOR: Parnassus Dom, Barad Mellon...


PARA: Bristlecone?

BRISTLECONE: *over comm* Hello, Mistress!  I have now been to Sol System!

PARA: I'm happy for you.  I really am.

I can't imagine what it must have been like to be stuck in one system for 600 years.

PARA: But give me fifty years here, and I may have a sense of it.

BRISTLECONE: *over comm* You do not have fifty years, Mistress.

PARA: Do you know something I don't?

BRISTLECONE: *over comm* Many things.  And I will be there to collect you in fifty minutes.
