She put her finger up and placed it on my lips.

“Please, wait let me, summarize…. generalize for you. There are tales. That we wholly recognize are true, even if we have not heard them before, we comprehend them naturally. Inwards.

A common certainty inscribed into our beings. Into our very depths. We observe these stories, we perceive these stories, we identify these stories…

These stories are profound, thoughtful, philosophical.

Though we do not know who is telling us these universal truths. Who is communicating, who is speaking, who is murmuring, mumbling, crooning.

Who is the Whisperer?”

Royal Wedding

This will be my final and only statement on this subject:

Due to many unforeseen changes in my schedule, I regret to announce that I cannot attend the upcoming Royal Wedding.

Despite many “media” rumours, my relationship with the Royal Family remains as always, strong and full of respect.

I congratulate and wish continued happiness, love and good fortune to the young couple.

The council reconvened after the break. The video from my len-senses was to be displayed.  This was Thomas’ final moments.  Most of the Major’s family stayed. His daughter and her husband left.  The video for the first 4 minutes was damaged.  When the technology repurposed itself, the images were not gruesome as some expected.  Though the wheezing from a punctured lung was obvious when he started to express what was eventually our final conversation.

“D-don’t, Second Lieutenant” he said.

“Don’t what Major?”

“Don’t say it, whatever were you just about to say. I don’t want it to be cliché, like an overdone death scene from a bad vid-net flick.”

“Major, I don’t understand?”

“Second Lieutenant, Mandy, Mandy Avari…. I’m bleeding out, suits damaged, air filter damaged, Alpha battalion will not get here in time for me. You and I both can see our vitals off our contact len-senses. I’m at peace. That, that thing, whatever it is, or was, we hurt it, killed it. Quite proud of you really. It toppled down that Canyon, you’re going to be fine but me….”

“Major, stop it please just …”

“Ah, ah, ah, no no no, you were about to say it? Something like <just hold on.> No, badly written death scene lines.  I need something real from you Mandy.”

“What? What do you need Major?”

“Mandy, you’re crying on your face mask, it will affect your visibility. I need the truth.”

“You need to conserve your air is what you need.”

“No, I need to know one thing. You’re true given first name? Come on now. Indian girl, Sikh, Mandy is short for something, is it one of the bad ones?”


“Got you smiling….” Which one is it please, some truth …..Manmeet or Mandeep?”

“Oh my God really?”

“Yes, really I must know”

“It’s Manmeet.”

“Ha! I knew it. Did you get hassled? Must have got hassled when you were younger?”

“Yes, I got hassled”

“I would love to have hassled you Mandy Avari, I’m actually trying to impress you a little with my knowledge.”

“Colour me impressed Major Tom.”

“Heh, I actually read your file. I knew the name. Just wanted you to say it.”

“Dad, can I come in?”

“Don’t know, can you?”

“Please Dad, May I please come in please?”

“That is from the Dept. of Redundancy Dept. I believe”


“Augustine, what do the readings say? What year you in?”

“I don’t know, I think I’m fine.”

“Reading’s here say 03250.”

“If you knew why’d you ask?”

“Parenting.  Fix the settings and I’ll let you in. Were you visiting Uncle Ignatius?”

“Yes, he says Hi. I’m telling Mom, by the way.”

“Your Mother, is currently shopping in Paris. Circa 01994. Don’t think I will let her in when she gets here either.”

“The settings fixed.”

“Bio-Dome up Gus and please clean your pterodactyl before you come in.”

In the beginning

“Mr. Watson–come here–I want to see you.”
