Love and World Eaters by Nick Wisseman tells the story of a museum worker peon, Aliah. Her peon status was confirmed after a small accident in which Aliah had dropped a small artifact while examining it. Admittedly, she had been surprised when the artifact began to move. Then there was the small sliver detached from the artifact during the fall that had entered Aliah’s bloodstream and swam away from the entry point. Supervisor Theresa had confirmed Aliah’s peon status when, after failing to find the sliver, she had told Aliah to wait a few days and see what developed. The Conservation Department Safety Record would continue unblemished.
