prisoners had their heads turned so they could watch him. He

heard a faint click from behind him. He whirled around.

“Drek! What are you doing?” He was surprised.

Drek ignored the question, and posed one of this own, “Do you

thinking. Could it possibly be, that all those horror stories

that she thought of as lies were really true? She’d once heard

that when people don’t like parts of history, they change it

into stories. Could this be one of those stories, that is actually

history? What other option was there? The moon must have

done something to Webb. But what? And why didn’t it affect

anyone else? Something in his body chemistry?
