No one says anything, not knowing if Woody is finished or not. But after about 30 seconds, it’s pretty obvious to all that he’s wrapped up his spiel. Mary takes his place, thanking Woody and the others for their words, then asks if anyone else wants to speak. She looks at Baker Bloch then at Hucka Doobie. Both wave her off, but then Baker felt the need to say, “We appreciate your supreme sacrifice Mary.”
“Then I suppose it’s time.” She turns to the rocket ship. “Goodbye all! I’ll be back as soon as I can.”
“Goodbye my love!” Pitch cries from the second row. “I know you will. I have faith in the Gods.”
Sobbing, she touches the launcher, then manifests inside the firing capsule. A person was already there. It was George, seated beside her.
He took her hand. “It’s you and me now.”
24 years later…
“Do you not know me?” asked Mary/Chuckles to
Sikul Himakt The Musician.
“Of course I do mother.”
