New Pasadena, 8:30 pm. Wednesday, December 19, 2057. New CalTech-Biochemistry building – Small Auditorium top floor.
The seven commensals are waking up; Bette’s face is wet with tears that still running for her cheeks, she is leaning her head on Tina’s shoulder, the blonde also sobbing, is tightly hugging her and caressing her hair, Kit is weeping too in Angus’ arms, Louise has her face hidden in Sharon’s neck and is crying silently and Melvin has his elbows on the table, holding his forehead with his crossed hands, his eyes are closed and wet; but finally after few minutes he talked.
Melvin: “let’s have dinner while we talk about what has to be done to win this war”
Dinner went almost silent, they only talked to comment and make suggestions on how to fight and assault the Hellmouth and about how to control the mole.
Melvin: “do we know for sure who the mole is?”
Louise: “I’m pretty sure, it is Robin Wood”
Bette: “yes, I agree”
Melvin: “then, we have to prepare a very good plan to penetrate his brain”
Louise: “I think we should give priority to that, but some of us still need to work in the strategy to defeat and close the Hellmouth, I think Bette, Tina, and Angus should keep working on it, and the rest of us Kit, Sharon, Melvin and me, we have to work in the way to enter the mole’s brain and neutralize his followers”
Melvin: “good, it is clear, how Bette, Tina, and Angus are going to work; they should go back to the lab and keep doing what they excel in; but how about us? How are we going to work this task of possessing the Mole’s brain?”
Louise: “you heard Maxine; we’ll probably figure it out when sleeping and if she said that’s the way, it will happen”
Melvin: “yeah…, I think we should wait and be prepare to meet again as soon as we have any new clue”
When the dinner ended, Kit and Angus removed the dirty dishes and cutlery and placed them in a robot-dish washer, and the remaining food to a food-leftover preserving device, a type of special refrigerator with a scanner which will determine the type of food preservation treatment needed and will proceed to encapsulate and vacuumed each tray of food. When the table was cleaned, everybody said goodbye and retired to rest, Bette and Tina were the first on leaving the dining room, followed closely by Kit and Angus but when Sharon, Louise, and Melvin were at the door, the widower spoke.
