    “Private,” he said. “I’m sorry about this, but new orders have been issued. The Reds have increased their rebirth rate, and we have to match them. The standard order now is six revivals before retirement.”

    “But that order hadn’t been issued at the time I was killed.”

    “It’s retrocative,” he said. “You have two deaths to go. Good-bye and good luck, Private.”

    And that was it. I should have known you can’t get anywhere with top brass. They don’t know how things are. They rarely get killed more than once, and they just don’t understand how a man feels after four times. So I went back to my trench.

    …an aztecan quilt…
    Center Square:

    Tlaloc – The Blue Feathered Eagle – The Aztec God of Storm and Rain

    Tlaloc is described as living in a quadripartite dwelling where he has
    four urns in which are stored the rains–some beneficient, some
    destructive–which he will ultimately provide.

    The 4 V-shaped forms extending off of the center block:
    Represent the four divisions of the city of Tenochitilan and that from
    each of the four cardinal points sacrificial blood flows toward the
    ceremonial center, representing the “nourishment” that will enable
    the god, that is, the world of the spirit, to continue to maintain
    life in this world….

    For the Best

    Prring! Trudy blinks at the screen on the kitchen wall. It’s a text from Simon. She knows what it’s going to say. It’s time. Her body clock could’ve told her that, if she’d been listening to it – but she hasn’t, she’s been ignoring it for days. Dreading it. No use belly-aching, she tells herself (and suddenly there is an ache in her belly). At conception they agreed on a deadline, and this is it.
