"Mm."

He turns to do that on his tablet.

Cam looks at what he was reading, finds he cannot quite focus on it, makes himself an ice cream cone instead.

And eventually he asks Cam if Cam minds helping with a demonstration for the council. "I want to ask them to write something down and then you can get it. To prove it."

Permalink

"Yeah, sure. I need to know who wrote it."

Permalink

"I'm calling Intal Neli."

Permalink

Nod.

And he makes a phone call. 

      "Hello?"

"Councilor. My name is Sahan Insel and I got this number from a visitor with spying capabilities I want to demonstrate to you now. Do you have pen and paper."

      Pause. " - yes."

"Write down a six-digit number."

 

He looks at Cam.

Number?

"877460," Sahan says. "The visitor is an alien, I just figured I should lead with something provable."

      "Where are you?"

Sahan gives an address. "My house. The alien wants to talk with a diplomat or somebody."

      "You are welcome to give him the phone if that would be helpful to him."

Sahan repeats this for Cam.

"Sure."

Sahan hands Cam the phone. 

Permalink

"Hello."

Permalink

"Hello. I'm Intal Neli, I'm on the Anitami governing council. I didn't catch your name."

Permalink

"I'm Cam."

Permalink

"It's a pleasure to meet you. I am arranging for some people to meet you, is there anything else I can do for you?"

Permalink

"I don't need anything, thanks."

Permalink

"How did you do the numbers trick? Is there a camera here?"

Permalink

"I can make arbitrary material objects. If you'd like to name a material object that is not wherever you are I can make that too."

Permalink

"How can you do that?"

Permalink

"I'm a magical species. This is also how I got your phone number. Speaking your language isn't me, I'm actually mildly surprised that's working over the phone since it's a property of the location where your citizen found me."

Permalink

"He sent us to his apartment."

Permalink

"Yes, the magic door is connected to his apartment. It's a weird magic door. Do these phones do pictures? Perhaps he could send you a picture. I have no hope of figuring out how to operate it, I'd get the focal length or something wrong and look like a cryptid."

Permalink

"I took pictures already," Sahan says. "If you're done I can send them."

Permalink

"He says he took pictures, I'm gonna give back the phone." He gives back the phone.
