Outraged? I'm barely surprised. This is a country where women aren't allowed to drive a car. They're not allowed to be in the company of any man other than a close relative. They're required to adhere to a dress code that would make a Maryknoll nun look like Malibu Barbie. They beheaded 121 people last year for robbery, rape, and drug trafficking. They have no free press, no elected government, no political parties. And the Royal Family allows the Religious Police to travel in groups of six carrying nightsticks and they freely and publicly beat women. But 'Brutus is an honorable man.' 17 schoolgirls were forced to burn alive because they weren't wearing the proper clothing. Am I outraged? No. . . . That is Saudi Arabia, our partners in peace.

Passing the Test

Tridus stood in front of SM_007, holding the small black device out. SM_007 looked at it, back at Tridus, then back at the device, before picking it up and looking it over in his hand. Tridus nodded and then smiled.

"You just attach it to your arm. It should stick," Tridus confirmed. "Like I said, you'll need to be stealthy. Then again, you shouldn't have too much trouble with that. Heh."

SM_007 looked up at the smiling Tridus.

"Okay, thanks. I'll see what I can do," SM_007 quietly said, almost beginning to crack a little smile. He looked up at Tridus, who turned around and began to head out of SM_007's quarters. Tridus turned around before leaving the room, and looked back at SM_007, who seemed to be thinking while staring at his new armband.

"For the record, you seem to be doing a little better," Tridus said, smiling.

"Yeah. I was getting a little sick for a while. I think I have it under control now, though. And...thanks for all of your help, Tridus. I appreciate it." SM_007 wanted to confide in Tridus and let him know of the war raging inside of him, and the darkness which was beginning to consume him, even if he now had a handle on it. But he knew that Tridus' reaction might be less than what he would want. In fact, Tridus has already dealt with evahl enough to have him troubled by this new problem now. SM_007 silently vowed to deal with this himself.

"No problem, SM. I'll talk to you later," Tridus said as the door slid shut behind him, and the room became a little darker. SM_007 went back and sat at the end of his bed, and thought what he'd do first to find this bomb. If it were a real person, he could reach out with his emotions, and...no, no, he can't do that. It's a bomb. He can't sense it. And why should he take the risk of using his powers again? SM_007 sighed. He'd have to remember his training and do this the old-fashioned way. But he could do it.
