He waited for Harris to pull one back, but realized that he’d never swing, for Harris wouldn’t want to be remembered in history for a misdemeanor

Cat’s arm. And like a lever, it moved his feet and walked him forward until he reached the chair and sat down. Old Cat’s body felt like it was floating on the soft leather. He pulled his hands off the armrests for fear of soiling them or scratching them with his calluses. Imprints of palm sweat gleamed under the fluorescent light.

Old Cat spread his arms. “That’s what we do here. Copy. No people are better at it. We …” Old Cat’s voice trailed away, and in that silence Faith recognized that neither he nor she knew who that “we” was who would take charge and remake the world. “What about you?” Faith asked. “What will happen to you?” Old Cat shrugged. “The army has seen to that, too.” Faith reached for his arm. “Then come with us.” “And leave others to be sacrificed in my place?” “If the army has planned this as well as
