The Atlantis Plague

Chang 8

The Atlantis Plague

Highlights

Quote

Everyone was there: Kate, David, Kamau, Shaw, and the two scientists: Chang and the European scientist, who had finally introduced himself as Dr. Arthur Janus.

Quote

"You think this is going to work? That Continuity can just take Janus and Chang's research and just... I don't know, 'snap it together' like the Triforce and magically have the cure?"

Quote

"It's clear to me that Chang and Janus want to find a cure. That rules them out for me. We know preventing a cure is priority number one for the Immari. There's only one person on this boat who was a loyal Immari soldier when this all began. Kamau."

Quote

"Maybe not while he was alive, but what... what if Chang had already killed Martin? You said he gave him a therapy on the plague barge. What if that therapy killed him, and Chang broke his neck after the fact to hide it?"

Quote

He climbed past Chang and Janus in the seat across from her and began talking to Shaw and Kamau in the cockpit-setting a course for Malta, Kate assumed.

Quote

The lantern light only half-illuminated Shaw's face, and in that instant, Chang thought the man, who was likely in his early thirties, momentarily appeared much younger.

Quote

Chang yelled out, a split second before Shaw drew the knife from his belt and slashed quickly across Chang's throat and windpipe, spraying blood on the stone wall and sending Chang to the ground, gurgling, clasping his opened throat, fighting for a breath that wouldn't come.

Quote

"I knew if he came to, he would recognize me, expose me. I'd assumed he would die without my help, but Chang's therapy, it made him better. When you left to... join David, it was the first chance I had. I did what I had to-to complete my mission. Nothing personal."
