(This scene takes place right after Mab is told the story of "Cubes and Kings" and before the Van Artell and Water Park stories!)
Cadet Dahn sat waiting patiently in the lobby for his new "Master", Cadet Mab Elon. Mab had saved his life only hours earlier and was now offering to Bunk with him, so that Dahn could get away from his former owner, Cadet Bay Tellis! Mab had told him that he was going to be treated with freedom and dignity from now on! Dahn had never really known any freedom and most of his waking hours were spent trying to make his instructors at the Academy happy and the rest of the time his only focus was body guarding and keeping Cadet Bay Tellis constantly happy! Mab had went to get Dahn's meager possessions from Bay! Dahn's thoughts stretched back through time as he realized he owned practically nothing except what Bay had given him! Even the suit he was wearing was a lone from Cadet Tank Melton, otherwise he would have to walk back to the Academy stark naked! His Ownership Cube had almost disintegrated him, but Mab stopped it! His clothes weren't so lucky! Dahn wondered how Mab had won that battle? He had been waiting for Mab to return for a long time! Had his new Master abandoned him already? Did Bay want him back? What if the Quartermaster continued to deny him a new room? Could Mab change his mind?
Dahn tried to calm his anxiety, but his mind moved across the waters of his thoughts, showing him something of the possible future for him! He could see himself wearing new clothes....not something gaudy like Bay would dress him in! Something he would pick out himself! In this future he was a civilian and he was free! He could see himself on a sunny, bright day, reaching out..reaching out to a beautiful girl! Would she kiss him? Love him? Dahn was embarrassed that he had never kissed a girl or known true love, but in this dream it seemed to be coming true! Then, another possible future beckoned! His was older, wiser! A strong Military man! An officer! He had made it through the Academy and was a great leader! Which future would come true for him??
Dahn turned and saw Mab coming down the hall with his meager possessions! Tears welled up in his eyes as he realized that Mab had not abandoned him! He suddenly didn't care if they did not get a new bunkroom! He would sleep on the floor if he had to! For the first time in his life he was going to be free to live his own life, just as Mab had promised! Someone cared for him and he wasn't going to let that go!
