Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


BALA-AMIN: Captain Sorlie, are you available for attache duties this evening?

SORLIE: I'm up to my elbows in some pretty exciting engineering right now.

BALA-AMIN: Is it exciting enough to cost you your job?

SORLIE: Ambassador, if you're offering to fire me for unlocking the Secrets of the Universe, I accept.

BALA-AMIN: No deal.

I can't possibly fire someone who has secrets to share with me the moment she returns to the office.
