With the sounds up ahead, Alex nods to the others, wishing the others
have radios that she could communicate back. She will do the best she
can at sneaking forward to see what is going on.
> Alex's shot meets more resistance than she thought. An energy shield
> briefly sparkles, absorbing part of the damage [20MD], but it isn't
> nearly enough to block the entire shot. The bot explodes in a hail of
> metal, ceramics and burning plastics. Its centuries long patrol is
> finally over.
> Off in the distance another bot can be heard, and even further away
> perhaps another. "Come," says one of the guides, "you fear these
> things but, but fear them we do."
> The manhole leads down to an ancient sewer with about a foot of
> stagnant, foul-smelling water in the bottom of it. The three guides
> lead Alex quickly and with great certainty down a number of passages,
> using some sort of fat-coated torches for light.
> And then they hear twin explosions far off in the distance. "Oh no!"
> one of the people exclaims. "That is our destination."
> Alex can hear a voice, and it sounds like Ted, just around a bend!
If people are good only because they fear punishment and hope of reward,
then we are a sorry lot indeed -
- Albert Einstein, German-born American Physicist
