The Captain who had the Barrett guy slid his way back down to brief his people and get them moving. I laid back and stared up the sky and tried to see what animal shapes I could find in the clouds floating by. I was pretty sure I had a cat cloud when the Captain quietly told me, "We're ready sir. Give the signal?"
"You got a name Captain?"
"Okay. I'm Gardener. Not sir. You decide to be one of my two sledge guys?"
"What's the other guys name?"
"Is today a good day to die Miller?
He looked at me quizzically.
"It's not a test Miller. Just answer."
It was a test. He knew that too.
"It's a better day to kill."
"No shit. Lets do this thing."
