It was a party, naturally. Klein and I barely woke up the next day. The Rebel Alliance’s victory against Uterio was something we could not pass by as a mere factor of the day. We had to go all out. And we did.
Chastity had its way though. Still, I’m surprised we had any wits left after drinking copious amounts of Malchiorian Super Water. It came from special hot spring on our world. The water is supposedly similar to what earthlings would call alcohol. Messes with your head.
Once I reunited with Klein, we began to make our way to the town square. There were people out there still partying, though I assume they had actually rested. Others seemed to really like that Super Water.
Now, had I been any younger, I would have called all the partygoers crazy. But, damn. That was a day of joy. Victory had been accomplished not long before. We’ve waited for this for months. Our people have suffered, but there is a whole, brave new world ahead of us.
“Can you believe it? Jepps has been dancing for an hour straight with his girl. Maybe they’ll finally tie the knot now that the war is over.”
I agreed with Klein. Jepps was one of the few soldiers I knew with a love life that lasted long. There were so many things to keep in order that finding a girl would be a waste of bloody time.
I guess after today that’s gonna change. We’ll have more time for our social lives. Still, I hope to fight for justice, especially in a universe full of evil.
One strange thing I noticed about that day was how strange the drinkers were acting. They started to repeat the same phrases, as if under some sort of spell: “¡Aixeca't!! ¡Aixeca't!!” Weird. I guess that’s what happens when you go overboard.
