Standing in his cell, awaiting his shipment to prison, Jacques St. Clair recounted what the judge said.
“After a life of service, it only took 13 seconds for you to bring it all to an end. I hope your time in prison will go fast because yours is the second life destroyed by your actions.”
He was right. Jacques knew it was all his own fault. He had been under too long and should have called for an extract months ago.
She was just a kid. He may not have killed her, but he didn’t save her either.

I have always enjoyed writing and exploring new ideas, new beliefs, and the dreams that rattle around inside my head. I have enjoyed the current state of science, human progress, fantasy and existence and write about them when I can.
