#Log00237 – Ahmed M. (verified Class Three) Recycling Operator#
There is no such thing as Heaven or Hell, not when you’ve seen what I’ve seen.

  I’m a savager you see. Yes, yes, a lonely job. My father told me that solitude brings Allah closer. I used to believe that. I don’t think I ever will now.

I guess being Muslim does conflict with what I said about Heaven and Hell, doesn’t it. But Heaven and Hell is a matter of perspective, you’d say. I know it sounds weird, but I saw something – it threw my thoughts about what is possible all over the place. I don’t even know what I believe in anymore.

I’ve seen all kinds of things surrounding planetoids, post-pirate battles and colonial wars. And yes, that includes frozen corpses, or parts of corpses. I’m so used to the sight of machinery and variable metals that these bodies become part of what I salvage. I’ve taken them manually before, thinking how much this metal is worth on the market, and then I have to take them out again, but carefully, so they don’t shatter in the airlock. Using Crab Claw (which is the auto way) they shred into a million pieces. I say a little prayer for them when I make mistakes like that.

marklurch1: What an unexpected pleasure! I usually avoid modern gothic stories as the zombies and demons shown on TV seem so one-dimensional.

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.
