“What is the alternative?”

“To what?”

“The alternative to doing what you’re doing.”

“Oh, I see. Well, I was thinking of retiring. Just returning to a normal life. Change my identity, perhaps move to another city where I can start again.”

“Are you sure you’re not just giving up?”

“Yes, I suppose maybe.”

“You know what you could do?”


“If you want to help, you can bust into a bank in Switzerland, raid the account of some huge corporation and redistribute the money to the needy. Like me. I need some money.”

“That would be illegal.”

“But that would certainly help, wouldn’t it? Or why don’t you synthesize some chemical from the outer reaches of space and make some sort of doo-dad that would convert garbage and other waste products into an efficient form of energy. Imagine the good that would do. Or a cure for one of the major diseases. Or a super strain of grain that can be grown in any conditions with minimal care so as to feed the hungry or maybe fly around and suck up the oil slicks in the water and decompose it in your super stomach and spit it out in a shower of harmless grape-flavoured rain.”

“I suppose I could do that.”

Paul is a super boy.
