"That one has a captive!" says Bina, pointing at one of the naughts disappearing into the distance.

"Is Gregor… eating a sandwich?"

"Looks like it."

"Jerk," says Bina, who, with a sinking feeling when her stomach takes that moment to gently point out that she hasn't had solid food in three days. "Damn, now I'm hungry."

"Don't know about that last one," says Kendra. "But I know how he made the rift."

"He's got my bloody time machine!"
