Chapter 58 - Self Configuring Modular Robot[]

Tharkad, some weeks later...

Victor's arm was in a cast, and preserer sleeves covered his legs in the wheelchair. While flesh-tone medical wraps wrapped much of his face and neck under his uniform.

"I'm sorry I can't stand up for this, Liz." He said, "But...I think you deserved to be told in person."

"It's Henry." she said. "Isn't it?"

"Mmmh. Yeah. Galen managed to recover him, and somehow he's still...well, he's still mostly alive." Victor explained, "For now anyway."

"What happened?", Liz asks

"Your brother managed to embarrass us all-he thought with me out and the CO dead. That he could get everyone to fall back and pull out while he covered the retreat with just his 'mech, and what was left of the Planetary Militia...only Galen and I? We weren't going to leave him behind. He cut a swath through forty five enemy 'mechs, somehow. The invaders were the ones who retreated, once the rout turned into a rally and a counter-attack."

"Where is he?", she presses

"He's being delivered to the most advanced medical center in the Lyran Commonwealth state." he said, "They're hoping they can get through to him-there's no brain damage, it's just that Hank's..." Victor's one remaining eye glanced to the side, "...gone? comatose, we don't know why."

"I want to see him."
