Everything That Has a Beginning

Chapter 1: Beginnings

by SpaceWeavil

He chose law because in statute and precedent, he saw both the struggle towards universal justice and simple logic, from first principles to complex argument. In the pursuit of that reason, he could do what was ‘right’. He paid no heed to the stereotypes or horror stories. He knew himself too well to think he would be twisted in that way. He would serve justice, even if that meant no hope of promotion, no great wealth.

The young man he had been sank into the recesses of his mind, whispering as he went, and a damp cold took hold of the frightened being he had become.

‘The captain wants you at the Core,’ said the woman.

‘Why?’

‘He wants to show you the real world.’
