“I’m on it,” Case replied and started to type furiously as her companion started to project a virtual net around her. “Now, I wonder what is in those missiles?” Colin said, “Not worried about the security intrusion?” “If Case needs us, we’ll do something, and if she can’t keep them out of our records, I suspect a couple of missiles will be the least of our worries.

Day 7

The trees were magnificent towering into the sky like mountains and, their trunks were dozens of meters thick everywhere they looked they could see alien shrubs, small critters scurried through the ankle-deep brush.
