Shock. And then anger – indescribable rage, like nothing I’ve ever experienced. When they find me with Hanover later, there isn’t much left of him. I’ve smashed his head in and then his body, and tried to grind that down with a pestle. I didn’t know where the beacon might be hidden, or if it even mattered, but I had to try. They think I’m mad – the soft-spoken blacksmith, a livid Blake, even Rebecca. I keep telling them the Empire is coming, that I am the Empire’s chief engineer. That I’ve been in hiding.
But we need him. ” A twinge as I wonder how she means that. But it’s true: Blake has led Sandhaven through good times and bad, made tough decisions and cared about the village. Sometimes, though, leadership is not enough. What if what you really need is the instinct to be fearful? And the thought as we make our way back to the village: what if Blake is right about me? So I begin to work on Hanover in earnest. There’s a complex balance to him that I admire. People think engineering is about practical application of science, and that might be right, if you’re building something.
Child prodigy. Unnatural skills. An unswerving ability to focus in on a problem and solve it. Like … building airships. I’m still an asset they cannot afford to lose. “You’ve no way to take me back. You have no authority here,” I say. Hanover’s bright eyes dim, then flare. The clicking intensifies. I wonder now if it is the sound of a weapons system malfunctioning. ” I ask. A silence. ” “I have already sent a signal. ” Horror. Shock. And then anger – indescribable rage, like nothing I’ve ever experienced.
