The NULL Solution = Episode 184

…”you are out of your cotton picking mind!” Sampson elucidates. The connection between clothing fiber and one’s mind is incongruent…

 

CHAPTER NINETEEN

Outbound Outcome

In the closest vote in the history of Eridanus {the only one so far}, 45,340,206 to 303, the matter of Princess Cerella leaving Eridanus with the rest of the McKinneys is decided.

The End

The inside scoop: The 303 dissenting votes were rumored to be the following, Fortan, Ekcello, Skaldic … the remaining 300 were Eridanians who were confused by the question, “Should a native of Eridanus be allowed to permanently leave the planet? {Roughly translated}” or knew they would not be found out. After all, questions are for the ignorant and who would want to leave anyway?

Does your vote matter? Not so much in the case of doting parents and a Null who is not devoid of selfish motives. The aforementioned Skaldic is not giving up hope when it comes to the fair Deimostra. He is irrationally confident that she will decide to stay with him, no matter the outcome.

“If you think we are going to leave our daughter behind Skaldy, you are out of your cotton picking mind!” Sampson elucidates.

The connection between clothing fiber and one’s mind is incongruent, but he gets the point.

“Would Deimostra vote to stay?”

“She is not the issue. It’s about Cerella and my grandson and the people have spoken. The McKinneys belong on Earth, right down to the youngest!”

And so preparations begin for the return trip to the Terran system. Compared to what they are used to, the voyage in the NEWFOUNDLANDER will be painfully slow. Chasonn’s buggy was snappy. Hyperphysical transmigration is an instantaneous hit. But even at 2x faster than when it left Mars, with Sam and a pregnant Celeste stowed away, it will be more than two years before Deimostra will set foot on Earth for the first time.
