Although future Inajda is very drunk, she is still aware of the magnitude of this meeting between her and the woman who sealed the past present and future.
The Guild Master’s General managed to convince (Future) Alexand Merek to agree to a candid interview with the reporter Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray from 101 Downtime News. Bizzi has no idea how he managed to secure this interview, but Alexand allowed the film crew to set camp in her grounds, and after a wardrobe change and an hour with the network’s makeup team, the interview is ready to commence. (For my magical son, Sam. Everyone else thought it was raining, but you knew they were all wrong.)
The Guild Master’s General separates himself from the scurry of reporters and Alexand Merek fans, as the two women, the reporter Bizzi Gray, who he rescued not so long ago, and Alexand Merek, herself, approach.

The School of Applied Resurrection is the world leader in resurrecting the dead from the war battered original earth. Although still in its infancy, technology has advanced enough to grow cloned bodies in days, rather than months. Katherine has accompanied Alexand as she knows how much Alex has been looking forward to this day, since her younger self witnessed the murder of these children and wished she could do something to have saved them from their horrific fate.
Anya has watched Alexand Merek place each soul tube next to the children’s hair, inside bags, which she has marked with their names. (Happy Birthday, Dad, this is for you, wherever you are.)
Georges has barricaded himself into his mansion, after fearing retribution for funding the Katherine’s Bullet project. As he had predicted, his wife, Kavita had killed herself again, and he was alone, wandering his mansion, his writer full of weapons, in case Lord Anderson sent an assassin to break in.
