Chapter Seventy

Outside the Citadel, the soldiers were applauding the light show and were disappointed when it suddenly ended. One second there seemed to be thousands of brightly colored beams criss- crossing in space and the next there was nothing except the fading images on their retinas.

There were a few minor explosions on the top of the Citadel that were hidden by the distance. Smoke rose from a number of fires, but the exciting light display was gone. The Citadel had given up.
