Tales of a near world 20
Who the hell is Gal?…He was wondering about this same question while moving hopeless figuring out how to find the bunch of idiots. He had less than half hour left and he was starting to resign. As a result he slowed down the “monster” hoverbike, as he renamed the hoverbi-bike, memories went out of his mind freely.
He was back into Space University when he was reckless but self-confident. He could drink tons of alcohol without getting knocked down, all others were out while he was still on party time. Ord was studying something related to World Systems Control. Both were unstoppable. Gal wasn’t the kind of guy who gets all the girls, but sure he had gotten a couple of the best. Neither he was the most popular one, but everybody liked him. He was a nice guy, the one who you would feel comfortable with.

He loved to play with her hair and she was the most patient person he had ever met. The other three resigned after meeting such a naughty boy. Gal loved her almost as he loved his mother. He called her “mom” indeed. She passed away about three years ago, she had gotten a kind of rare illness.
Gal sighed, he had 5 minutes left until he could be tracked down by the police. His device would loose the cover protection. And he had miserably failed in a quest he didn’t want at all. He pulled the monster hoverbike over. He had 5 minutes of peace, 5 minutes to enjoy the landscape. Raguda was beautiful. In a year it won’t exist anymore, he thought…
