On the ground next to the hole was a discarded laser pistol. Stark picked it up and examined it. The ruby lens was cracked. The contacts behind the lens were welded shut.

“I’ll have pancakes, eggs, and sausage,” said Blake. “And... I’ll have a... bowl of creamed... wheat and toast... on the side,” said Parker. Parker took his bowl of cereal.
