p131
"Faith within men's heart is the strongest thing in space." Livingston 23rd, the great explorer who died in a group of dark stars.
17th stop
The Fossilized Warrior


p132
Where are you going, Tetsurou?

Toilets.
Be careful.

???

Ah!


p133
Ow!!!

Tetsurou!!

Please forgive us for this incident...
It seems someone deliberately put some rocks on the rails...

Rocks?
Yes, they are particularly big...

And the radar didn't notice anything?


p134-135
!!

p137
What is this place?

Where do these forms come from?

It's a planet of fossils...

The train had an accident.
It's extremely rare for a Galaxy Express...

Someone set some stones on the rails...

Who could have done such a thing?
I don't know.

Maybe the same person who sculpted those shapes.
It's impossible.


p138
They are all natural.

But it's not possible.
Yet, it's the truth.

As surprising as it may be, this isn't man-made.

While waiting for the end of the reparations of the rails and the locomotive, we should stay inside the train.

Let's keep our weapon at ready.
You think that the culprit is going to come?

It's possible... We would then prepare for a death battle.


p139
I don't understand how nature could make such a thing.

It seems like living men were petrified.

What kind of planet is this?
It's at the center of the galaxy, from where you can leave the space islands to get to the outskirts of space...

It's the sixth planet of a little solar system... It look so much like the Earth that you can mistake them.

The only difference is that the whole surface is covered by these formations, including under the seas.


p140
...

Binoculars, quick!!
What do you want to see?

Please let me borrow them, I just want to check something out...
Fine, here.

I'm going to look from here.

...


p141
What a beautiful rock!

But it's too far, I can't see it clearly.

??

Tetsurou!!!


p142
I know that curiosity killed the cat.
But I definitely want to see that rock from up close.

Oh!

How could nature give birth to such beautiful forms?


p143
??

What's that?

This skeleton isn't in stone.
It's a human skull.

There are some scattered here and there.

So that's where those skeletons come from...


p144
If the heads have all been separated from the body...

... it means they have been beheaded...

But by who?

Ouch!

??

It can't be Maetel...


p145
[nothing \o/]


p146
Damn brat!! You too are a fossil thief, aren't you?!


p147
You're going to end up like them!!!!

Shoot!! I forgot my rifle!!!


p148
You're going to die without suffering.
"In the universe, there is nothing more resistant than determination." Hammerstein, space physicist.
Waaaah! Waaaaah! Waaaaah!

Tetsurou!!!


p149
Ow ow ow!!
Be a man and stop whining...!!


p150-151
I opted for a stitch of the 20th century.
It's a little painful and it might left some traces. But you were the one who insisted so that I use this ancient technique on you, Tetsurou!!
I would've preferred him to cut my arm...


p152
You're lucky he didn't cut your head.

Please forgive me, but could you get down of the train.
What?

You've lost your ticket.

The man who hurt you took the opportunity to steal it from you.
It means you've lost the right to be on board.

Whether they stole it or found it, a passenger with a ticket can get on board of the train. They would just need to write down their name, and they will be accepted...

...

Did you take your weapon?
Yes, I have it.


p153
Where are you going?
Let me go.

But you can't.
Let me get off!!!

...

It's my fault if I lost my ticket, because I got off to look this rock. You don't have to follow me, Maetel.
I promised you to follow you everywhere, Tetsurou.

If you're getting off, I will too.
...


p154
I was attacked when I was looking at this rock.
It's wonderful, it looks like she's alive...


p155
The one who stole your ticket will want to get on the train.

In this case, his house must be empty.
It's possible...

Let's look for his house.
It must be near here!!

He jumped from the top of this mountain.

I'm climbing it to check...

I see it!!!


p156
Here is his house...
They are the remains of a space ship!!


p157
This type of machine were used for stellar travel.

He's living here, no doubt about it.

The fire is still hot...
He left recently.

The inside is in good state.
The internal devices are still functioning properly.


p158
It's hard to find your way in such a maze.
But finally, we're seeing the end of it.

Ah!!!!


p159
It's you...!!

...

Yaaah!!


p160
...

Why didn't you get on the train when you had the occasion?

Because I understood you weren't fossils thieves...

If that was the case, I would have used the ticket without hesitation.

And I would have left this planet, giving up on my position as the fossils guardian.

When I realized you weren't thieves...

... I understood that I had no more reason to leave this planet and so, I chose to die.
That's why I attacked you, wishing to be killed by your hands...

Why are you so fond of those fossils?
They are just solidified forms in stone.

Once, I left this planet on board of a spaceship...
... leaving my family and friends behind.


p162
At the time, I had to investigate on a strange gas cloud that was getting near our planet...


p163
When I understood it was a fearsome petrifying cloud, it was too late. My planet was already done for...

When I get back, I could only see petrified faces everywhere.

Petrifying gas?
It's impossible!!!!

Space is full of phenomenons still unexplained by science.
No matter if you believe in them or not, this planet's inhabitants were changed into stone.

So, I decided to become their guardian...
... and to protect them from thieves who are selling them on other planets.

I thought that someday, I'll find a way to bring them back to life...


p164
Please come back here if you ever find a way to cure these people.

I give you back your ticket.

...

That's why I thought these forms were wonderful.
Yes.

If one day I find how to revive fossils... or if I ever meet someone capable of doing that...
I promise that I will come back here...


p165
But, Maetel, do you think we can ever bring them back to life someday?
I don't know...


p166
Universe is scattered with silent planets. If we managed to revived them, no one knows to what extend space history would be changed. Living and dead planets are all shining, afar, with the same sparkle...
