F3 Tempest


"Prospero," Jack belched after chugging his beer.
"What?" I said.
"You asked about the most famous Storm Rider."

"Yeah?"
"So it's Prospero."
"What the hell's a Prospero?"
"He was a guy in a Shakespeare play. He controlled the weather and threw up storms. Hell, the play is called The Tempest."
"So that really happened?"
"How the hell should I know? I wasn't there. Some people think it happened. What do I care?" Jack signaled for another beer.
"So all these oddball stories from history might have something to them?"
"Oh yeah. There's a rumor going around the Pyreans and the Gaians that an Aquarian caused the big flood; you know, Noah's flood."
"No way."
"Oh yeah. We give 'em shit for that one all the time. Of course, the real fun is blaming Pompeii on the hotheads. That one's fact. It all started in a brothel . . ."
