Book 17: A Little Immortality — Part IV


NARRATOR: Aboard the Cynthetic Certainty...

NEEKA: Bosun, will you recycle this? It requires ion filtration.

VAAL: No kidding. Did all this come out of your stomach?

NEEKA: Of course not. My "stomach" is the size of your thumb.

NEEKA: You can see it there, in the bottom of the bag, under my oxidizer bladders.
