A Period of Reaping: Part Two

In this, the second installment of The CNVE Chronicles, William and his community take advantage of their newly pacified area to improve their situation, reactivating portions of the cellular network, establishing new outposts and expanding the nascent system of commerce while Sonia and Padma gather their scant supplies and find a shelter for the winter. Puchard and his gang contend with a betrayal while devising ever more depraved torments for their captives as a means of occupying themselves during the cold winter days.

With the arrival of spring Sonia and Padma strike out, food nearly exhausted and health failing. Sifting through the detritus of the dead world, they cross paths with first Puchard and then William, leading to a violent confrontation.
