11. Chapter 11 *Damon*

< “What if I could rid you all of the darkness in the Depth? Would you allow me to explore then?”> I pleaded with the counsel of the Elders. Finally they told me what happened; and suddenly I wished I had never asked.

My Grandfather’s ship and my Father’s ship had both made it here, but their entire crew had gone to explore the darkness thinking they could conquer it but it only consumed them. He had gotten the knife from my grandfather and like me he had only wanted to understand it. But I was perplexed how it was possible for him to have gotten the knife; no one had ever come back. They said they sent a shuttle as my grandfather’s last request and it had landed in my father’s room addressed to him, he had never told a soul, not even me. He didn’t want government attention.

Reading my thoughts Drapier created a private channel for just the two of us.

< “I know what you are thinking, it cannot be done! Generations before you died in the Depth, your generations!”> He told me trying to get me to see reason.

< “But, what if they aren’t dead? What then?”>

< “Oh my dear Damon, I was the one who held your grandfather’s hand as he died, I was the one who sent the knife.”

< “But what of my father? You have no proof that he died! And we have much more advanced equipment now!”>

< “Can you even hear yourself?”>

< “He could still be alive!”> I couldn’t let the hope evade me. If he was alive, I was determined to save him.
