Example text

I expended a lot of weaponry on Mars. We are good, but we are not that good. What are you doing? ’ the thief says. ’ Mieli takes a deep breath of the stinking air. She opens her eyes. The thief is staring at her with a look of concern. ‘Come on,’ he says with a soft voice. ‘Let’s think about this. ’ ‘Fine,’ Mieli says finally. ’ The thief is quiet for a moment. ‘It seemed to want me pretty badly,’ he says. ’ Mieli says in disgust. A cloud passes over the thief’s face. ‘No, that’s not possible. Looks like Joséphine does not want more than one of me running around.

You have no idea what—’ And then, neutrino rain, gentle as a breeze. Anomalous. She stops. The ship says nothing. The spimescape is silent. Mieli scans the sky again. Synthbio seeds, thoughtwisp shells, and much further away, a lonely Sobornost raion in the main vein of this Highway branch. Still, her neck bristles. Maybe I should apologise, she thinks. Perhonen is trying its best to watch over her. That’s what it has been doing ever since she brought its spirit up from the alinen— A bright line splits the spimescape in two like lightning.

The plan that the pellegrini unwittingly gave me is there, too, a mosaic of interlocking pieces. I study it from every angle, humming to myself. Something is missing. Then I hear the zoku jewel, an eager receptacle for thought and desire. I tell it what I need and it makes itself into something that completes the pattern, clicking into place. A part of me says that it is wrong, that I should feel guilty, but it fits too well. Surely there can be no harm in something so beautiful? I feel like a little boy who has found pretty rocks on a beach.
