Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part I


CHINOOK: Peri, my friend, please check your messages.

PERI: Have you been checking them?

CHINOOK: I deliver them. I only have the metadata.

PERI: Which message should I be looking for?

CHINOOK: The one from your sister. She called from Outer Uupl, near the site of a refinery explosion.

PERI: Chinook, if you'd said "Your sister is in a disaster area" I'd already have the message open.

CHINOOK: If I'd said that, I would be announcing to you that I read everyone's metadata.

PERI: Hey, can I have some privacy? I'm calling my sister.
