“Does he know he’s not coming back, Dr. Chad?” asked Dr. Lee.
I smiled, “Not a clue. He thinks he’ll be the first human on Mars. The fool.”
Truth was, Peter Hugh didn’t deserve to be on this earth. Not after what he’s done, and everyone he hurt. It wasn’t hard to get him to volunteer for this mission being that he believes he comes from outer space.
“How long before the rocket explodes?”
“As soon as he exits our atmosphere,” I said, walking toward the telescope. “We can watch through this,” I set my hand on the telescope.
We watched the rocket take off, I could see Dr. Lee was having doubts about what was about to happen. “We just did the world a favor.” I turned my head to look at him, “We’re getting rid of an asshole.”
Fireworks never looked more beautiful.
