    Summary

    Dr. Liu,

    Got your final report yesterday on Project LV-426. I'm amazed. Great work all around. It's been forwarded to the Chair, our friends at the Pentagon, the Defense Appropriations Committee, and DARPA. The acid-resistant armor is something that should really catch their eye.

    We're expecting some big grant money from this.

    Burke

    Burke,

    Did you read even the executive summary of my report? There are some interesting biomaterials that we could work with, but I stressed, multiple times, that this creature is far too dangerous to even consider using in military research projects. It's aggressive, stupid, vicious, aggressive, impossible to train, and did I mention aggressive?

    . . .their limbs work on hydraulic principles and operate under pressure, which is why they splurt like a popped water balloon when they get hit in those Marine camera feeds we saw. A slight wound to a limb takes them right the hell out of commission, and now your troops have to deal with an insanely aggressive and stupid xenomorphic K-9 unit that oh by the way IS BLEEDING ACID.

    Summary

    When Aeschylus had sacrificed an old black goat to Ares, his prayer had been for an old soldier to join the city guard of the island of Aegina. Someone with strong nerves and the calm that came from many campaigns. Someone who'd put away the idea of glory. Someone who could handle the wealthy citizens, drunk sailors and visiting Athenians.

    That was why he'd prayed to Ares. Also, he couldn't very well pray to Athena given the problems with Athens. Ares was a god of city guards, or so he'd heard. So, he gave Ares an old goat.

    The man mountain who applied for the job was a bit slower on the mental oars than he'd hoped, and Aeshylus couldn't blame the man, boy really, for Aeshylus' inability to keep his eyes off the muscles on Thêritas of Thrace's muscles. But beggars couldn't be choosers.

    As it happened, it was fortunate that he hired Thêritas. Practically a miracle.

    Summary

    Emhyr was looking at him for once, with a strange expression. “I have misjudged you,” he said, sounding irritated actually: how dare Geralt surprise him.

    “I get that a lot,” Geralt said.
