    Chapter 43

    Postby Freakzilla » 02 Apr 2008 19:42

    In the cradle of our past, I lay upon my back in a cave so shallow I could
    penetrate it only by squirming, not by crawling. There, by the dancing light of
    a resin torch, I drew upon walls and ceiling the creatures of the hunt and the
    souls of my people. How illuminating it is to peer backward through a perfect
    circle at that ancient struggle for the visible moment of the soul. All time
    vibrates to that call: "Here I am!" With a mind informed by artist-giants who
    came afterward, I peer at handprints and flowing muscles drawn upon the rock
    with charcoal and vegetable dyes. How much more we are than mere mechanical
    events! And my anti-civil self demands: "Why is it that they do not want to
    leave the cave?"

    -The Stolen Journals

    Duncan had been fuming all day about being so easily bested by Moneo when a fish speaker summons him to see Moneo and Hwi. Moneo apologizes for making Duncan feel inadequate and asks for his understanding. He informs them that Leto has not returned from testing Siona and Duncan realizes that Moneo was tested too and asks him about it. Moneo says Leto showed him a glimpse of what it was like to be the God Emperor. He reveals that Leto wished he could cry and Duncan explains to them that water is poisonous to sandworms. Moneo tells them that Leto has commanded that they part and never see each other again. They argue about the Godhood of Leto and Moneo tells them how Leto showed him what made Leto make his decission to take on the sandtrout skin and how he almost died from it. Duncan damns them and leaves. Hwi promisses not to see Duncan again. On his way back to his quarters Duncan passes Nayla and calls her "friend?", she replies that she is no longer friend. In his quarters he knows that now Hwi with think him a petulant foor and he pities Hwi and Moneo's devotion to Leto and remembers how he used to be like that. He used to be like that, but no longer.

    Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.
