    “That’s incredible news. I knew you could do it.”
    Kassandra beamed. “You can’t imagine how great it feels to finally do something good.”
    Ryan raised an eyebrow. “What are you saying? Your work was directly responsible for taking humanity into the stars.”
    “Instead it almost ended up killing us all.”

    Ryan’s chuckle ended in a weak cough. “Eight months, eh? I guess I’ve missed a lot.”
    “Now there’s an understatement,” Kassandra said with a roll of her eyes. “While you’ve been recovering, my team and I have been hard at work.”
    “What have you found?”
    Kassandra beamed. “I cracked it, Ryan. I know what happened, and beyond that, I know how to stop it.”

    “You were shot,” Kassandra began, “several times actually. The doctors patched you up as best they could, but you’ve been in a coma ever since Marcus brought you here.”
    “Marcus saved me?”
    “He did, and what’s more, he captured the banshee that almost killed you.”
    “The Professor,” Ryan managed, the swirling memory of the fight in the vault coalescing somewhat, “yes, I remember now. He came from nowhere, and attacked me with an old projectile gun.” He winced as he recalled each impact. “I guess I should be grateful he didn’t have a plasma weapon.”
    “I suppose,” Kassandra said with a wry smile, “a charred corpse would lack your sparkling conversation skills.”

    “Eight months,” she said, giving Ryan’s hand another squeeze. “I’ve been so worried about you.”
    “What happened to me?”
    Kassandra’s eyes widened. “You don’t know?”
    Ryan thought back. “The last thing I remember is finding Marcus unconscious. Everything after that is… fuzzy.”

    Ryan closed his eyes, the effort of keeping them open proved too much. “How did I … Marcus! He’s still–”
    A squeeze of his hand stopped him. “Ryan, relax. Marcus is fine. You have to focus on yourself now.”
    “How long have I been here?”

    “Here.” A small circular tube pressed against his lips. “Drink, your throat must be raw.”
    Ryan sipped, the cool liquid filled his mouth and the darkness that hovered at the edges of his mind retreated.
    “Thankyou,” he croaked. “Where am I?”
    “The station medical centre.”

    “… that the cryogenic process triggered a mu–”
    Ryan raised his hand.
    “–tation in some…” The stream of consciousness stopped. “Oh, my, god. Ryan?”
    A wiggle of his fingers was all he could manage in response. A moment later he felt that hand wrapped in another’s, much smaller hands.
    “I know it’s hard, but please try to stay with me, Ryan.”
    The voice spoke truly, staying focussed took far more energy than he realised, and oblivion beckoned.

    The noise was indistinct, all rolled together as though being heard through water. He focussed on the sound, trying to make sense of it, to pick meaning from the chaos.
    Too hard.
    The effort pushed his tired mind beyond its limits and he sank below the waves of consciousness. Again and again he struggled, what else could he do? His mind swam in a sea of vaguely pleasant numbness but somewhere beneath all that he knew there should be more. A single thread stood out from the background buzz, a lilting sing-song sound coalescing finally into a form his mind could grasp.
    Words.
    Someone was speaking to him.

    Kassandra searched his face. She opened her mouth to respond, ready to chastise the man for his lack of compassion but decided against it. He wasn’t joking, no, but his grin seemed somehow forced. “I won’t,” she said finally.
    Marcus let out a long breath and looked back down at Ryan. He stayed there for a long moment then turned and walked away.     Kassandra watched the man leave. Head down and shoulders slumped, like he’d lost something of himself, and for the first time in a long time she felt like she needed a drink.

    The fire in her burned away. “That’s the one you captured?”
    He nodded. “We’d pretty much cleared the rest of the building. There’s a team down there now doing clean up. You and your team will be down there in just a few days. Make sure you make the fucker pay for what he did.”
    It took Kassandra a moment to wrap her mind around Marcus’ words. “I needed the specimen for research, not torture.”
    “I know, I know. Just don’t feel like you need to be gentle about it.”
