The Naevus Heresy
Conversation with Invidius
+++Octus Log 520.977.M41+++
Masters: Get the hell out of here, find another way around and outflank those heavy weapons. Get a move on Gaius, we are badly exposed here. Every minute counts!
Xantius: Holy Terra!
Octus: Ah I see. So acolytes we finally meet, what an interesting bunch you all are. Gaius, it is good to see you again, I trust you have recovered from the wound, and hope it was convincing. It seemed to work out well. Don’t worry they won’t remember a thing in a moment.
Octus: Your precious Inquisitor is too late anyway, the map has already been moved.
Gaius: What’s going on? Who are you?
Octus: No need to play dumb Gaius. They won’t remember this.
Octus: Why will we not remember?
Octus: Not too bright though.
Gaius: Who are you? Give me a name!
Jael: Why show yourself to us now?
Octus: We were just leaving.
Octus: I don’t see why you oppose us, we are all on the same side, we want what you want, to protect mankind from the perils that face it. You have the pretext of authority; granted by whom? An Emperor who has never spoken in ten thousand years! Well it sounds like your mandate is as robust as mine.
Jael: What is your mandate?
Octus: A good will and desire to save mankind.
Jael: Nice ring you are wearing!
Octus: It was a gift.
Xantius: How do you plan to achieve this?
Gaius: Freeze heretic scum!
Octus: Well I had better be on my way, I would say until next time, but you won’t remember it anyway.
Octus: Why is he always mumbling, what?… why? You are repeating everything I say, oh I see… very clever Octus. Well good luck.
Thaddeus: Erm guys. Hang on a moment, my internal chronometer has just registered an anomaly. I have just lost several minutes!
