Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part II


NARRATOR: Outside the Pugna Culubris comm center...

SFX: Knock-knock

(unknown, behind doors): Don't shoot! They're using us as human shields!

EBBY: Legs! What does thermal tell us?

LEGS: Looks like eight hominid heat sources.

Two crouching, six prone.

EBBY: Human shields aren't prone.

LEGS: The prone forms are a half-degree cooler than the others.

EBBY: Cooling off... right.

Mac, can you take shots through the bulkhead?

MAC: Through this bulkhead I could drink shots.

EBBY: Drink up.
