“I found out that Julie was... the smartest person ever. And she was nice and kind and never forgot how to sew. She liked to cross stitch and she looked good in peasant dresses and I watched a Chief Technology Officer break down and cry over her, and... and the thing of it is, no one cares. To everyone else? She was just... an appendage. Something strapped to the Artifact to give him depth or some kind of... Jesus. Backstory.”

“So. You’re Artifact.”

Landon paused, then snorted. “Yeah,” he said. “I’m Artifact.”

“Seemed dumb to dance around the subject. It’s pretty obvious. I mean, Jesus. You call the Lieutenant ‘Jayce.’”

“Everyone calls the Lieutenant Jayce.”

No one calls the Lieutenant Jayce, Donny. Jesus Christ.”
