The False Moon War: Epilogue
to Title and Contents
Somewhere else entirely, King Balance and Queen Bias were amicably sharing a pot of tea. The king had eventually shaken off his bonds, as he always did.
"You intervened," declared the Queen.
"You intervened. The Chaos Moon is in a perfect orbit. The warring forces are perfectly balanced. Only you could have done that."
"Yes, dear. Pass the sugar, if you would be so kind."
Queen Bias passed the sugar and a silver teaspoon. The spoon rattled against the china teacup.
"You know the war will spread to other worlds, don't you? They will all still be fighting 40,000 years hence."
King Balance shrugged as the spoon clinked gently onto the saucer. "I suppose so. Would you like a scone?"
The Queen sighed.
"With jam and cream, please."
