Minerva hugged her mother tightly. "Be safe mum. Be far, far away from what is coming." She stood back. "This is sergeant Hollister. He'll be by your side for the whole Journey." A short, burly, man stood to attention. "Take care of her sergeant."
"Yes general!" He said, snapping together his heels and saluting. Minerva rolled her eyes, and Nerys smirked.
"General? I hope that came with a pay increase?"
"Not that it'll do you any good mum." She leant down. "Nanner can't come with us bunny. So you need to give her a big hug, we'll see her soon."
