A Different Approach

Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.

"How long until they're done?" Hallan stood next to his shuttle in the darkness.

"Another minute sir," The inspector said with a huff, "It's standard procedure for those with negative CONCORD security status,"

"You said that already," Hallan shot back. The two men who were bumping around inside appeared at the hatch and stepped down onto the landing pad.

"Alright Mister Turrek, if you'll just sign here," The inspector handed Hallan a clipboard with a pen. Hallan scribbled down his signature and handed it back, "You can be on your way sir,"

Hallan climbed up into his shuttle and shut the door. He threw his bags and sword down next to the door. He settled into the cockpit and began to warm up the engines. He'd needed to be at the rendezvous ten minutes ago. He pulled back on a lever and the shuttle began to lift off.


Hallan looked at the ground and muttered, "Where is he?"

The shuttle'd been hanging in the air over the site for more than an hour. Surely being fifteen minutes late hadn't ended the deal. He sighed and turned his ship back towards Oasis City. He dialed the engine power up and noticed immediately the ship had failed to accelerate. Something rocked his ship as he began to run a diagnostic. He pulled up on his controls but got no response. Suddenly the shuttle lurched forward at full speed.

Hallan continued to pull on the controls as the ground approached.



"And then?" Sarah had put aside her notes and was listening intently.

"I believe our session is over Doctor," Hallan nodded and laid himself back down on his bed.

"I'd still like to know what happens next,"

"Next time,"

"Fair enough. I'll see you tomorrow then,"

"Can I ask you a question Sarah?"


"How come you don't already know how I came to be arrested?"

The Doctor cocked her head to the side and smiled, "Next time,"
