Doc blanches a little under her rouge, and I know what she’s going to say before she even opens her mouth.

“I’m so sorry, Margery. I…I can’t lie to you. She died. Last month.”

I stay silent, but turn my head away. She goes on.

“She was so brave. She and Ripley actually got to be really good friends, if you can believe it. They fought like hell, but they always fought side by side. They both made it all the way through the bloody campaign. After things settled down, she got sick. Cancer. A cancer I shouldn’t have missed.”
