I always knew my son would kill me. What makes that statement truly strange is that I knew it before I even met his mother. Sorry for the confusion, I guess a bit of background is in order.
For some reason all she could hear was ringing in her ears. She could not understand why she smelled fireworks in the living room or why her arms were so heavy.

Spirit’s Last Vision
On June 10, 2003, a rocket left the third planet from the star that is called Sol. This rocket, aimed at the forth planet, was carrying a small robot called Spirit. This robot had a simple mission to study the fourth planet and look for signs of water in the planet’s past.
The Eternal Question

The Second Coming
In the not too distant future, or perhaps the recent past, a trial took place. This trial was both supreme in its importance, and also nothing in that it passed without notice. Nobody appeared in the courtroom save the defendant, a homeless person dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit; the judge, a man close to retirement that only hopes for an easy day with no real issues; a prosecutor, a man looking to make a name for himself and move up in the world; and a court reporter.
Stephen Gordon sat on the edge of the chair. He had been waiting an hour already and was filled with enough nervous energy to run three Boston marathons and was ready to start climbing the wall. A glance at the secretary glued him to the seat.
