The Unknown - Chapter 13d - by nova

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?"

"Miller sir."

"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."
