... If only Zanthenor could silence the memory of the attack-ships' tongues. "Run, baby!" Doktor Kool-Hands had telepashouted - "Those mothers are coming after us. And they don't give TWO HOOTS!"
... "What are you looking at?"
It was Zwiblibb, come to show Zanthenor his new microcosm.
"What? Oh. Nothing, Zwiblibb. Just staring into the middle distance."
"Zwiblibb, I'm just having a flashback- Ow! HEY!"
"I WANT TO SEE!"
And, like that, the tongues were silenced.
