Stacy: Laying the Trap

He apparently used paper and a stub of pencil as often as he used his minicomp. The walls of the empty cabin were papered with equations, all incomprehensible to me as Chinese. To him they were the answer to our power problems, and the salvation of our nation.

I knew in theory what he was trying to do, a new power source that was both endless and emission-less. Folks had been chasing new power sources since the War, I had a feeling he was going to win that race.

I gathered up the papers and set fire to the cabin.
