Emily comes out of Mount Hook. She is broken and alone and she is the last of them — the last survivor of the Great Networked Thunder Dance.

She is free, she pushes aside the last of it, but she cannot stand. Her robot, her marvelous rock-paper-scissors-playing robot, has been crushed.

She looks up at the sky for quite a while.

It’s really pretty.

Then she points herself north and begins to crawl.
