Giggle.

He smiles. "Fair enough. Should I send you back now?"

Permalink

He hugs his wife. "Take care."

Permalink

"I will. We will bring you back after another Valian day?"

Permalink

"All right."

She squeezes him. "Now is fine," she tells Atennesi.

He sends him back.

"Well. Is there anything else I should be doing as long as I'm here besides sitting in the garden attracting a crowd?"

Permalink

"I'm sure there are things you could be usefully doing, but I'm not sure about should."

Permalink

"Well. What would be useful?"

Permalink

"I have dossiers on my...peers."

Permalink

Nod.

Permalink

"I have them very thoroughly secured, it will take a little while to retrieve them."

Permalink

"I can wait."

Permalink

He retrieves what appears to be a sheaf of papers wrapped in diamond from a false bottom of one of the drawers in his desk.

Permalink

"We're going to have to teach you about computers and maybe cryptography."

Permalink

"I look forward to it."

Permalink

He places another sheaf of papers on top of the diamond-wrapped one and script appears on it in shining silver.

Permalink

"Ooh."

Permalink

"These aren't permanent; the writing is magical and will fade when I cancel it."

Permalink

"It's pretty."

Permalink

He smiles. "Thank you," he says, and hands her the papers.

Permalink

She looks.

The papers are divided into five sections each labeled with a name: Jehan Sival, Yuen Lien, Ahuitzotl, Ea-nasir, and Andresh Polsen.
