Katherine has seen many more refugees arrive from the shrinking world outside and has kept her promise to President Bomani and ensured that the Amanojuko virus does not board the ship. She has spent far too long in her laboratory and decided to have a break from her work, visit the top deck, to look out at the sea.
After checking that her cat was alright, watching the rest of Alexand’s recordings and waiting half the night for the sun to rise, Katherine felt herself falling asleep. She woke up in the middle of the afternoon, with Ali purring on her pillow, and a deep need to visit the family of the girl with Downs Syndrome, Alexand had donated her eye to, to see why exactly the family had ended up on the Kyuunansen.

Katherine needs answers.

Katherine walks back to her apartment, disorientated, attempting to come to terms with being stranded back in her own time, alone.

The Guild Master’s General returns Katherine to the safety of the Kyuunansen ship, after showing her a future world, which resembled heaven. (This issue is dedicated to my dad, Eric Moore, who died 25 years ago today, the day after my 21st Birthday. Alexand and Heyem were (or will be) born on 2nd December, so this day represents both death and life. Love outlasts death.)
Katherine has had five blissful uninterrupted weeks on her own, working in her laboratory. She has even made a makeshift bed on the chair, so as not to be disturbed by anyone, anywhere on the Kyuunansen, as she struggles tirelessly with her research into the Amanojuko’s virus.
