Opal didn’t say anything about Sam’s information from the Simulation. We ate lunch in silence for a while, as I tried to ignore the gnawing anxiety, chewing on the back of my neck. How could we just eat rice and soup like I didn’t just tell her our ship is trying to kill us. I … Continue reading The Ship: Part 4
