Walking to the Temple by the Bajoran They warned us. The ones who were speaking to the Xenexian. I thought the Xenexian was dead or disappeared and that was too bad. The man was a doctor. He could've put me out of my misery but that'll happen soon any way. They warned us he found help and that they'd be coming soon. Looked like Fed ships that flew over. Must have been true what those others said. Crazy big eared Vorta was livid. The more out of control his JemHadar got, the wilder he got. Not wild like the Jemmies though but in what he did. S'why I wish that Xenexian was here to put me out of my misery. Didn't know those cloned things could laugh like that. I can't stand up any more, not after what that fucker did to me. His men dropped me in a heap but the ones who were talking to the Xenexian...they moved me as carefully as they could. Left one of the Vulcans to watch me. Should've asked one of them to use that neck thing on me. Prophets but this hurts.... Those Fed pilots. They fly good. Kept their shots out of the compound where we were. Herded the Jemmies away from us, kept the Vorta from letting them kill us out of spite. I think the Hybrid laughed, maybe it was the Klingon, when the force field dome frizzled out. I would have but I spit out blood instead. Prophets...Marines. Genuine Marines. I would have cried but that hurt, too. They looked like they meant business. Problem was the Jemmies were white starved. The Human was right about that. Ugly bumped freaks about slaughtered the company that came down. Yeah, they kept them away from us but at such a cost...especially when some of us are dead already. Who the hell sent a girl down in a Marine uniform? I'm seeing things as I approach the Celestial Temple. Must be. What's that Vulcan saying? Beamed? Where to? What the hell species is that Marine with those ears? Oh Prophets...NO! I couldn't yell. Tell them the head Jemmie got the girl. I can't breathe. Can't see either. Can't se the sky any more. I'm in a box. There's no ceiling here. Must be a box. Losing my hearing too. That's no voice I recognize talking to me. It doesn't sound angry or afraid. Warm hands. Warm voice talking to me. "Peace comes from within, friend. Your Prophets dwell in you. They will bring you peace," the warm voice told me. It spoke to someone else. "No, Sergeant, this one passes. I will stay with him." I trued to say something to the voice. Tell it about the girl, the others. Somebody made a gargling noise. They were choking. I think it's me. "Easy, friend, you are safe here. Think pure thoughts now. Think happy ones. The sage tells us that if a man speaks or acts with a pure thought then happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves. Go,friend. Your work is done here. Take your happiness with you to the Temple." I can't feel the hands that belong to the voice any more but it's still warm. Is that the Emissary I see now? Maybe he'll tell them about...
