A moment later the door opened but it was not Visij who appeared. It was the older Da’uhnb that had been seen at the beginning of the interrogation.
"Hello olgogs, I am Grand Admiral Thei’gann of the GAST army.
We are rebels against the Temporal Empire. And I really want to thank you. We would never have convinced Visij and the TEA to allow Jak’hal’s prison break…but you all convinced him not just to go along with it but to trust your people to infiltrate the Resistance. It was very helpful to me. Break out agents I need freed and make sure to get double agents throughout the Resistance.
A definite GAST win. Now you can finish your purpose and act as the fall guys and gals.
The TEA genuinely cared about your people. Too bad you didn’t trust them.
That’s okay while the TEA are hunting you across Time and Space they will never see my plan coming.
Thank you again Hekeriki. I never expected a single Olgog so intent on building her own Time Shredder would be the perfect willing target for the TEA.
It must have taken you years to put together that paradox engine.
It will allow you to flee the TEA. And I recommend you do so.
From now on you will have the TEA , the four Horsemen and the Resistance after you. Have fun with that. I hope building your own Time Shredder was worth it.
I wonder which Da’uhnb you killed to make it. Oooh didn’t know that did you Lalon? There are ONLY two ways to travel time. One is annihilation. Check her aura you will see she is not someone who has learned annihilation."
Lalon looked right through Hekeriki and sure enough there was no annihilation aura.
Then GAST closed the door leaving them alone again inside. His voice could be heard faintly saying, "Which means she killed a TEA Agent to get that ability.
A Temporal Criminal in so many ways.
What is it the TEA espouses ahhh yes Time Travel is illegal if used by mortal beings for the purpose of changing the timeline…"
Thei’gann left them.
Lalon realized none of their team sent to Jak’hal’s prison break mission had actually used it’s reward to reach their important target. Instead even he had used the reward for a personal grudge.
He looked over at the image of Hekeriki and realized that maybe if one of the other teammates had followed her to the actual mission objective they could have convinced the Resistance to help them without whatever had sent Hekeriki down this terrible terrible road.
