THE TERMINATOR STRIKES AGAIN
Sarah Jeanette Connor was driving across a vast and lonely landscape of cacti and brown sand toward a frightening range of mountains, shadowed as they were by swollen rain clouds. Lightning fired behind them threateningly. The promise of a storm was in the air.
In a way, the Terminator had killed her, Sarah was thinking as she bent to pick up her .357 Colt Python revolver just to check that it was loaded. She then slipped it back into the holster hidden under the dashboard of the open Jeep. She was certainly no longer the naive nineteen-year-old waitress she had been just a few months ago. That person had died when the two people she loved more than her own life -- the father of the child now growing in her, and her mother -- had been brutally murdered. She certainly remembered every detail of these terrible events, but lately, she had been learning how to lock the feelings into a place where they would not interfere with her survival. Because she must survive. For now, Sarah Connor was the most important human being in the world.
Sarah raised a Walkman to her ear and listened to something she had recorded a few minutes ago when she'd stopped to get gas. "Should I tell you about your father?" she said, as she glanced down at her swelling stomach. "Will it change your decision to send him here, to his death?'
She imagined the point in the future when that choice would have to be made, and she shuddered. "But if you don't send Kyle, you can never be."
That crazy thought never failed to keep coming back to her mind. Kyle Reese, a young soldier who had volunteered to be sent through time to protect her from the Terminator, had made her pregnant with the son who would one day order the father back through time to make her pregnant so that one day the son would order the father back in time to make her... Thus, a circle of events, bending infinitely back on itself... She remembered what her high school science teacher used to say about paradoxes: The universe is one big python, feeding on its own tail...
