Daniel waited from the debris of a building, watching as the sun prepared to hide in the gray haze of the horizon, with Msi’ at his side, who could feel all his exaltation.
She wasn’t happy with what the young man had told her, to have his necklace, it was not to have him, how could he hesitate to return?
–Are you afraid?
–Yes, I'm always afraid, and not just from one thing, each mission requires something different and there can always be something that fails, but don’t forget that there are only two options, wait to die or look for an exit, no matter what it costs.
They both walked to each other, Msi’ embraced him and let out a couple of tears.
–I am very afraid, I do not want to lose you.
–Muult kekoo –Daniel said as he stroked her hair–. Long ago, I lost someone very important to me for not daring to do the necessary. Yes, I’m afraid, but I’m more terrified to go through that again, repeating my mistakes. I have a debt to pay.
For a moment, time seemed to freeze, in a perfect moment of absolute peace.
But didn’t last long. Suddenly, a flash opaque the afternoon sun, the sky opened and a ship from the Earth of Tomorrow appeared.
