Book 17: A Little Immortality — Part IV


VAAL: You removed your internal organs?

NEEKA: Any competent medical professional would have done the same thing.

VAAL: You removed your own internal organs. From your body.

By yourself.

NEEKA: As would any competent medical professional who has a healthy secondary metabolic mode.

VAAL: It still sounds risky.

NEEKA: I did make sure my dorsal cap-stack was fully charged.

VAAL: If you're gonna show off, other people are s'posed to be watching.
