The other half of the squadron returned, still no one from the Valkyrie, but all the support staff has been brought to the Twilight. If I was hoping for an answer, I was wrong, and it was obvious that some people knew more than others. Cookie and Mac knew what was going on, but Cookie’s the chief mechanic, so of course, he’d know. Fipps, Tower and the Rabbi were there, but no one was saying anything.

Two mechanics from the Norn started for the Gumbo with wrenches in hand and it took Mac, Cookie, and Tower to keep me from stopping them.

I watched as the tore apart her engine, looked at each other and then just walked away. They left my ship laying there, her engine strewn all over the deck like it was nothing. At least it gave me something to do.

I put the Gumbo back together, muttering about strangers messing with her but the only one listening was Mac. Cookie was conferencing with the other Chief mechanics while Tower and Rabbi kept looking stoic as they watched everyone.

For four hours, nobody was talking to anybody and then, Tower and Rabbi were asked to escort me from the hangar. I don’t know what’s going on, but I”m getting worried.

Tower kept assuring me that I hadn’t done anything, and I wasn’t in trouble, but it sure feels like I am.
