The Adventures of Maite and Kepa: Part 98

The ladder led down into a subterranean room that, while seemingly ancient, was filled with technology that Maite could never have imagined. The walls were brick, their edges work with age. Bits of mortar flaked off. Maite wondered if the walls could actually support all of the massive infrastructure she had seen above them. The […]

Maite gave a panicked glance at Kepa. “What now?” Kepa shrugged, as he looked back up at the woman floating above them. “Ez dakit!

Maite and Kepa approached one of the flying egg things. As they got closer, it grew, seemingly sensing that there were two of them. “Everything here seems to have its own brain,” said Kepa. “Everything seems almost alive.” Maite nodded. “I guess, if they’ve perfected artificial intelligence, everything might.” “At least the robots haven’t taken […]

“Zer?!?” exclaimed Maite. “De Lancre is here too?” Marina, or at least the woman whom Marina was possessing, nodded her head. “Bai. And he’s been here a while.

“Who…?” began Maite. “Shush!” hissed the figure. “Follow me.” Without waiting, the figure strode through the crowd. Maite looked at Kepa who simply shrugged. They took off after the figure, who was weaving and dodging the various people in front of it almost as if it anticipated where they would be. Maite and Kepa had […]

“The future?” exclaimed Kepa, an edge of panic in his voice. “What do you mean, the future?” “Well, why not?” asked Maite, rhetorically. “Our time is the future for Marina and de Lancre, and they’ve both gone there. Why wouldn’t there be zatiak in what we would consider our future?” “But, but,” began Kepa. “At […]

It took a few moments for their vision to clear. When it did, they could tell they were still in the airport, but it was drastically different. Rather than the relatively sparse and empty hall they had just been standing in, they now found themselves surrounded by people, lights, and displays. Every nook had a […]
