He tunes the radio, sorts through static for answers. Only questions, clean and clear: can one child really ruin the lives of his entire family?
A ghost-sound, like a voice; then, gone.
Why did he have to stay with her? Who was that at the door, all those years ago? Did his life, her life, Juno's life... did they all have to end this way?
No port in the static storm. But then, distant, a sound. He's found it, he thinks; tunes closer, and closer, feels the rush of answers, the relief of a mystery solved. It comes closer, a banging sound, like footsteps, echoing... and then he's found it.
And he wishes he hadn't.
Here comes Turbo. The Man of the Future.
Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.
