As he was leaving the office, he was surprised to hear Nova call out to him.

" What is it?" William asked, turning on his heel to face him.

William sighed.

" We've got to go through all this again?" he asked.

" Not quite. It'll be far more complicated on my end. You see, Redlin defected to the DASS twenty years ago."
