The Song of Two Brothers



The song abruptly ended.

The resonance Sybok shared with Spock, no matter the distance, was cut off, as if it had never existed.

Sybok probed the emptiness where his katra had communed with Spock's, like poking the tip of one's tongue into the space that once held a tooth.  The resonance was gone.  The song of two brothers was no more.  There was only one explanation.  Spock was dead.

Sybok tearfully fumbled in his pack for his tin of incense.  He threw a few grains into the embers of his campfire and followed the fragrant smoke starward.

/Rest peacefully, brother./
