Many had bags with them, clearly containing all their belongings, but nobody had weapons. With their guns leveled, they surrounded the crew of the disabled ship. One on each side, two of them went to cover the door leading to the interior of the ship. Mike took a closer look at the crew and realized that they really were in a bad way. A man and a woman were sitting on the floor and had bandages on their legs. All of the crew had bandages, and many were still stained with blood. An older man, in a black suit with a small white metal cross pinned on the collar of his jacket, and who had an arm in a sling, turned to Romero and said quietly “You can put away all those weapons: we are no danger to you.
Mike had nothing to do, so he went on observing the people around him. He was no longer stressed as he had been at Steve’s, and was quite at ease watching them. It was clear that this crew was from the inner areas of the colonized zone. You could tell that from how they dressed and from the general look of the people, but also from its composition: the Hunter made a point of showing that he had no gender bias, and three out of his seven officers were women.

As soon as he was inside, the Father, who was lying on his bed, got up and sat on a chair. “Father, I’ve brought some food”, Mike said. “Thank you, it’s very kind of you to care for a prisoner like myself. And no doubt a difficult prisoner”, he said. ” “Mike”, he answered. “The Hunter ordered me to bring you food. We have nothing personal against you, but you are on the list of people wanted by the police of every inhabited planet”.
