"Hey, " Day sighed.

"Hey, yourself."

"What's wrong? You seem distant, " she pried with a furrowed brow.

The captain shook his head slightly then took a long breath. "They're dead."

"Who? Who's dead, " she was alarmed.

She sat next to him. With a feigned smile, he turned to her, and brushed a lock of hair behind her ear. Her brow twitched.

"Marty, and Zak, some Thewls that rode with us. I don't even know their names. He didn't care. He just said we had to press on, " O'Hara explained.

Day clasped her hands over her mouth as tears welled up in her eyes. "Oh, no. Oh…Marty and Zak, " she said between choking tears.

"Korit just left his crew mates behind. I..." He stopped in mid-sentence and held back tears of his own.

Quickly, he masked his sorrow with anger and stood. He turned facing the wall then smashed his fist into the steel. Day recoiled from his outburst. She had never seen him so overwhelmed by emotion. She tried to hug him from behind, but he threw a second fist into the wall and shouted.

"What am I supposed to do? I mean, I get it. You know? We need to be here, we need to keep fighting, or these monsters will kill everything. God damn it! They're my friends. Why do I keep leaving them behind?!"

"That's what he said?"

"Not so much said, but yes. According to him it's the only way, " O'Hara responded.

"I should like to meet him, " Flem said.

"Yeah, " O'Hara trailed off.

"Wait a minute, I thought...I don't know, I thought that when we got the travelers, they were going to help us fight the Lokians, " Day snapped.

"Look, I'm not sure how to explain this. Somehow…they, he I mean, won't help outright. I guess, he can only show us the way, " O'Hara answered.

"I am surprised, " Flem interjected. "Our history indicates that they fought the Lokians for us."

"It's different now…that's all I know, " O'Hara replied.

"This is awful. How can we win?" Day complained.

"He never implied we would, truthfully. What he's giving us is a chance, but I'm at a loss for now."

"Travelers are our benefactors, " Flem stated. "Surely, they must be willing to do more."
