The night was blustery and cold. Pym followed Brunt as they rowed back to the ship. They were all in their own little worlds.
Pym looked at his shoulder. Chip was gone. The space was void of the familiar weight. He smiled. The silence was beautiful.
"ahgra gooth tarashk nebal.." Pym spoke in Infernal under his breath. The phrase was one Chip would mutter to him on his shoulder. "Your continued life gives Him power." He was told that after every conflict Pym came out of. A dark reminder that his fate was sealed.

The chuckle that reverberated in his head was sadistic. "I suggest you get them…. mmmmmaster."
Pym's thoughts turned to wondering if he could make his own incense…..
