3. 3.

Rampen lukkede bag os og vi stod nu og kiggede ud i det store sorte ingenting, vi kunne kun se et par meter frem for os, længere rakte lyset ude fra grotten ikke. Vi tændte lygterne på vores hjelme og begyndte stille at gå fremad. Det tog omtrent en halv time før vi nåede det store hul vi skulle ned i, vi havde måttet gå langsomt i mørket for ikke at falde på småsten eller pludselige ændringer i stenene under os.

Vi fandt en form for trappe der var blevet hugget ind i hullets væg, der skulle ikke være så dybt, dog turde vi stadig ikke bare at hoppe og gik derfor forsigtigt ned af trappen. Omkring 50 meter under os kunne vi se lys.

 

“Der, kan du se lyset? Jeg tror det er Old Man’s telt.” sagde jeg og prøvede på at pege på lyset, jeg er dog ikke sikker på om han kunne se hvor jeg pegede, men han sagde “Ja det må være der.”

 

Teltet var rimelig stort i forhold til at han boede alene, jeg var spændt på at se om han ville fortælle os hvor vi kunne finde Star-Lab. Jeg havde søgt og spurgt mange folk ind til hvem han var og var kommet frem til at hans navn var Ivan Jareigo, han stoppede som CEO ved Star-Lab da han var begyndt at lide af hukommelsestab af korttidshukommelsen og havde sidenhen skiftet navn til old Man. Jeg havde fortalt James hvad jeg vidste om Old Man på vejen hen til teltet.

 

“Old Man, are you there?” spurgte jeg

 

“Go away!” stemmen lød gammel og ru. “I don’t have anything to sell or trade” sagde han.

 

“We are not here to sell or trade, we want to talk to you about your time as Ivan Jareigo, when you worked for Star-Lab” sagde James.

 

“No one has called me Ivan for years, come in” sagde han og åbnede telt døren. Vi nikkede høfligt til ham og trådte ind. “I’m sorry that i don’t have anything to offer you, it’s not often i have visitors.” sagde han og ledte os hen til en lille sofa.

 

“That is okay, can you tell us where to find Star-Lab?” spurgte jeg, jeg var ikke den mest tålmodige person i universet.

 

“Star-Lab” sagde han og kiggede ud i luften som om han prøvede at huske noget.

 

“We need to find it, but we only know that it is placed on Expolia, we also want to understand what the place is, can you help us?” spurgte James, jeg skævede lidt til ham, det passede mig ikke at vi skulle høre om hvorfor det eksisterede, men når jeg tænkte over det kunne det faktisk være en fordel, måske vil vi få god brugbar information.

 

“To understand what it is, you’ll need to know its history” sagde manden og satte sig i en lænestol. “It started way back in the days, before i was called Old Man. John, Sammy and i had been going to the same science school on Urolik, we were the group in our class with the best grades, science was easy for us. One day we talked about what we wanted in our futures, sammy wanted to become a science teacher, but John and i wanted to run a company, we wanted to create a laboratory where we could evolve things. When we graduated we bought an old factory and rebuild the place to turn it into a lab, it started small but with time we expanded it by building basement levels.

At first we just did normal research in the things that needed a closer look, but that was not what we wanted. We began to experiment on plants, we tried to change the plant appearance by color and size, it was very successful, we earned a lot of money by selling those plants, but it wasn't enough John, he wanted to take it further, he wanted to experiment on humans, he wanted to make them stronger, wilder and to obey him. I didn't like it but went along with it, we builded a new facility on Expolia. We made an agreement with the prison in Asterius capital city, to do experiments to the prisoners that had a life sentence, the prison was running out of space so it was easy to get the contract signed.” han holdt en kort pause og fortsatte så.

 

“At first it was unsuccessful, the test subjects looked like they were trying to become bodybuilders but they were not stronger than before. I then sat down and put two and two together, i found believed i had found the solution, so i told it to John and he immediately changed the procedure to what i had made, we quickly saw promising results, the test subjects gained natural muscle mass, the got much stronger, in fact, unnaturally strong, they acted like soldiers, they got trained to follow orders and tof ear nothing, John then decided to use them for military and said that he had made them and not me, he thought it was great but i could see the truth, i could see that John one day would go to far, and when that day comes we won't be able to control them any longer. I told John that we shouldn't go any further and that we had already gone too far, but he wanted to go further. I then told him that i would leave the company, i would not be part of the Super Soldier Project, but before i walked out of the room he got two soldiers to catch me, they clenched me in a chair and gave me electric shock, they tortured me for several weeks before eventually they managed to make me forget what the procedure for making the soldiers was. After that they sent me on an expedition to Mars to get me as far away as possible, they told the media that I suffered from memory loss and therefore chose to leave the company and was raised to settle in a new system they said I wanted to be called Old Man to be remembered.” sagde han, man kunne tydeligt mærke hans vrede imod Star-Lab og især John.

 

“How could they do that to you, it's so cruel.” sagde James helt i chok over den gamle mands historie.

 

“I probably knew too much. If you make a direct route to Expolia from here, then you will see a big crater, from that point you'll need to fly another 23 miles straight north, then you will get there, it's hard to miss, in front of the building there is a big pond with a yellowish liquid, i remember that you need that liquid for the procedure, but thats all i remember of it.” sagde han.

 

“Thank you Ivan for telling us your story, but we have to go know if we should be able to stop them in time, do you know how to stop them?” spurgte jeg.

 

“Unfortunately i don't” sagde han.

 

Vi rejste os og sagde farvel. Grotten virkede mørk og kold efter man havde været inde i varmen og lyset i teltet. Vi tændte lygterne på vores hjelme og begav os tilbage til Rocinante. På vej op af hullet var James ved at glide på et trin, jeg greb hans hånd og han fik fodfæste igen, noget af isen fra loftet havde dryppet ned på trinene og gjorde dem glatte, resten af vejen tilbage var nem og uden flere uheld. Vi skiftede tøj og satte kursen mod Expolia, det var lettere at komme ud af lavagrotten end ind.
