Flaming The Ignorant


The hologram flickered as the blueish beams of light refreshed the image of the young man standing proudly in his overly decorated uniform.

“I thought you were in Fadlar?”, grinned the young man.

“Our colonies there were destroyed in the great war, we are building elsewhere now.”, replied Jovien visibly annoyed at the statement.

The young man burst into laughter, “I see, our empire survived the war intact!”.

Jovien grit his teeth, refraining from reacting, “Really…..”

The young man nodded with a cheeky grin across his face, “Yes”

Jovien’s blood was boiling in his veins, how dare this young man make fun of the mighty Kaidan Imperium in front of other leaders Jovien thought.

The young mans face turned white… “Sounds…. Errr ok….”, he stuttered.

Jovien smiled, “Well in that case I’ll meet you in 2 hours at the wormhole.”

The young man stared at Jovien, “I will be there I just need to contact my researchers…”

Jovien interrupted wagging his index finger back and forth, “No no no, you said your blue’s would of made a difference in the war, I want to see how effective these blues are!”

The young man looked around for a second in confusion, “err no that’s not what I meant, I meant, errr, I meant I was looking to develop new weapons.”

Jovien smiled, “Of course you did! It doesn’t matter bring what you like! I don’t mind…”

“Meet in two hours then…?”, mumbled the young man.

“You can count on it.”, Jovien grinned.
