Chapter 315: The Big Bang

I’m almost finished with the process, but I’m interrupted by a voice from behind me.

I turn away from the device to see Ripley, my Ripley, a hundred yards away. She’s waving her arms, but I can’t make out her words from this far away, not over the murmur and cries of the crowd.

I take some steps towards her, beaming. But then I get close enough to read her advancing lips.

“Run,” they say.

I look back to the device, then back at her. Then, I run.

It goes off, and I go out in a wave of fire.
