Book 17: A Little Immortality — Epilogue


NARRATOR: The storm on the horizon fills half the sky...

It has been four hours since the end of hostilities at Urtheep Industries H.Q.

TAGON: Which one is that?

CHINOOK: Kutsko.

It's the same one under which I found and subsequently rescued Sergeant Schlock.

SCHLOCK: I didn't need to be rescued.

CHINOOK: Andy and Tandersil didn't need help hooking up.

TAGON: Chinook... you could put the map-wall back up, right?

CHINOOK: And stop the storms? Yes. I have the resources for that.

TAGON: But you're not going to do it.

CHINOOK: Akkrok and Kutsko are the reason this world thrives with such diverse and abundant life. Without the storms, the jungles would wither and fall from the sky.

VAAL: Kinda like the cycles of extinction that sweep the galaxy every few million years?


CHINOOK: No, NOTHING like that. Bosun, that's a terrible metaphor.

VAAL: Oh. Well, the storm is spiral shaped, like a galaxy.

SCHLOCK: I see it too.
