- Small Worlds
- Chapter Twenty-Five
Five months later and light-years across The Void, a woman, suspended in mid-air, will be smacked in the head by a gigantic vessel that appeared out of nowhere. The impact will give her a brief flash of insight, and she will realize that, for whatever reason, that idiot would rather have kept his damn gun than held up his end of the bargain, even if it cost him his life (which it had not, incidentally). She will not have much time to contemplate this, however, as she will be brought aboard said vessel in a matter of minutes. Framing this in the present, of course, this is actually a matter of five months and some minutes. This will likely be important later on, but since it has not yet happened, disregard it for now. If necessary, retrieve an aspirin before continuing.
