SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE
Kurt Vonnegut

 


 

There were two peepholes inside the airlock – with yellow eyes pressed to them. There was a speaker on the wall. The Tralfamadorians had no voice boxes. They communicated telepathically. They were able to talk to Billy by means of a computer and a sort of electric organ which made every Earthling speech sound.

 

“Welcome aboard, Mr. Pilgrim,” said the loudspeaker. “Any questions?”

 

Billy licked his lips, thought a while, inquired at last: “Why me?”

 

“That is a very Earthling question to ask, Mr. Pilgrim. Why you? Why anything? Because this moment simply is. Have you ever seen bugs trapped in amber?”

 

“Yes.” Billy, in fact, had a paperweight n his office which was a blob of polished amber with three ladybugs embedded in it.

 

“Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why.”
