The waste of resources and time defies logic, and if logic be served, my capabilities and expertise would be of far more use to the outside world rather than dark caverns deep within the planet’s crust for purposes unknown.

I looked back behind me: Only rubble, smoke, and char. They had sent everything they had after me, and there was nothing left. In my effort to escape I destroyed everything they had built.
