Chapter Seven, Part Two: Quantum of SolaceMature

“Oo, I like it! A Treasure Hunt!” the Master says to his hand. “Hide and Seek, even!” 

 Then he looks at the note one more time before raising it to his mouth and chewing.

But the table is not finished yet. 

And neither is it a table. 

Quickly, it grows fingers from legs, and an upper palm from tabletop.

Off to the medical bay it happily tromps, behind feet and footsteps and on the backs of unsuspecting guards, to pay a visit to its only living master.

The End
