May 24th, 2552 Leaving
Test Pilot/ Part-time mechanic/The Younger One, Kat James Reporting
As we headed out, I couldn’t help but feel like we hadn’t even come close to finishing what we started, but Fipps assured me that we had learned more than enough for now.
I know it has something to do with the ruins, and Fipps won’t say anything one way or the other— which means I’m on the right track, I’ve been part of this mission long enough to know that much.
He did let me in on the fact that the odd metallurgy they had on the 7.5 matches the scraps we got after the explosion of the Twilight of the Gods. It had somehow been hardened and mutated because of the explosion— and that the explosion was caused by vibrational changes in the metal’s structure.
I think, if we aren’t careful— we will become The Enemy, and the brass thinks it’s not us, but The Fates who change.
As I prepared to leave, Aziz returned. He put his hand to my chest and told me, we would meet again, when I am the Old One, and I return to where we began.
I’m not sure what he meant, but Cookie recommended some scotch as we toasted The Fates and prepared to head out into our future.
