With only about two months to go before its release, here is another bit from What We Become. This is a part of an exchange in progress between Mal and a new character named Rose.
"How do you know all this?" Rose asked.
"It was all over newsblogs and the HD," Mal replied.
"I never heard about it."
"You just forgot," he said. "Everyone did."
"How? How could people forget something like that?"
"Some things we forget because they fade from memory. Other things we make ourselves forget, because we're scared of them. Or ashamed."
