“And that has annoyed the Hwzeenn,” she commented.
“Exactly,” the male said. “The Hwzeenn think that they have tolerated them all this time, but it is vice versa. The Strangers have tolerated the Hwzeenn. The Strangers have not been bothered, even by a civilization as large as the Hwzeenn Empire,” he continued. “Well, they weren’t bothered until provocation, and now the Hwzeenn is provoking them. They will learn their mistake soon enough.”

“Did you warn them?” she asked.
“No. Their time is at end,” he said. “There are many species in the galaxy, some of which have been suppressed by the Hwzeenn, and they are ready to thrive after the Hwzeenn are gone. I believe that some of the species have actually a fighting chance against the Strangers.

“Sense them?” she asked, wondering how she could sense them. “No, I don’t. Are they coming from the Core?” she asked.
“Most of them are, but a few come from other construction sites,” he said. “The odds are against the Strangers by several thousands to one, but they will have no difficulties against the Hwzeenn.”

As he said it, his daughter remembered how the Strangers had defeated them a long, long time ago. They themselves had actually used similar tactics against the Strangers, and they had also thought they could win.
“The Hwzeenn tactics are like ours,” she said.

“That’s true, and we made the same mistake as the Hwzeenn are doing now. We really thought we could win,” he said and continued, “But it didn’t take long before we realized our mistake.”
“You cannot imagine the feeling when we understood that we were looking at our extinction when the enemy came upon us. We thought we knew the enemy, but that was only wishful thinking,” he said with a sad voice.
