The NULL Solution = Episode 168
…maybe we should hold a raffle, with Deimostra as the prize…
Deke’s last blurb serves to highlight the elephant in the room. Just where do the individual McKinneys stand on making a return trip to Earth?
“Who said we are going back to Earth. And who knows what bad things have gone on there since we left home.” It comes down to what you know, as opposed to what you do not, for Celeste.
“I have a brother and an entire planet that I’ve never met or seen. As much as I adore the drama between the Null and the Gifted, I personally cannot wait to meet Gus… and that Roy Crippen sounds like the greatest human on two feet.”
“Your father isn’t here, the vote would be invalid.”
“And just how do you think he would vote? Ekcello has basically had him hogtied to Eupepsia for years now, come on.”
“She’s been to Earth, remember? Joyner probably has a Texas birth certificate. And the Gifted hierarchy does not exist anymore… and then there is the matter of hyperphysical transmigration… if she can regain it, she can come back whenever she wants to visit.”
Celeste is allowing all the possible options to roll around her brain. For her, the notion of Harmonia has intrigued her since the issue of Lorgan first surfaced; that a superior entity of such magnitude exists. At one time, Eridanus seemed like the ultimate challenge, but no more.
