After a drunken future Katherine had fallen unconscious, future Alexand opened the letter addressed to General Merek. A letter from her Guild Master, and the catalyst for Katherine’s present intoxication.
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.
Alexand and Katherine have got up early so they can prepare to take Anya to the School of Applied Resurrection. Alexand walks down the stairs into the lounge to join her wife for breakfast. (For Barbie. One of the most beautiful people in this world.)
Future Alexand has some loopholes she needs to fix from an incident which happened to a past version of herself. She takes Katherine with her to Moscow, 3992, where they both are witnesses to the brutal rituals of the fledgling Amanojuko empire.
Katherine had taken Aamiina and Jamila to Samira Ganesh, who showed them to their new apartment. Katherine decided to avoid work for the day and return to her own apartment as the events of the afternoon have made her think about her own future on this ship.
The Guild Master’s General is still attempting to show Katherine how flimsy the fabric of time’s continuity can be, and before he returns her to the Kyuunansen (after educating her about the dangers of meeting Alexand) he has a few final events to show her.

The Guild Master’s General did not return Katherine to the Kyuunansen after her encounter with Alexand. He didn’t reprimand her, or anything remotely like it, but simply walked beside her, towards a little hut in the deserts of Sudan. (3939)
