Across the pond in Cuba, Zed was recovering from his close encounter with Merlin. His endeavor to find the ‘subject tested positive’ was successful. He now knew it was Samantha. Zed had one answer and many more questions.
Back in Milton, UK, Samantha knew that Arturus could read and repair memories; she postulated that craft skills were memories stored in multiple organs of a body. She saved the skills of a Paris-trained corsetiere and copied them to recovered patients. She now had the means to build a new business; shortage of skills was no longer a problem.
Samantha’s company will make ‘made-to-measure clothes’ targeting ‘the larger lady’; this company would give her financial independence. Each patient, Samantha rescued, was added to her workforce. The fortunate few had a home and a job. Arturus fixed the patients and Samantha was left to come up with stories to explain away the recoveries. Can she remain secret, sane and safe?
