Mr Callaghan? My name's Qubit, Dr Gottlieb gave me your number. You said you've worked with teleportal tech before?

How much do you know about it? Were you involved in its development, or...?

[This could be either good or bad. Not to say Qubit's never worked in collaboration, but it's definitely not something he's done often, especially on something like this.]

Noted. I'm going to level with you here - in my world, I'm the inventor and sole user of this sort of technology. [At least now he is. Since. he sort of broke everyone else's.] So I'm still on the fence as to whether I even should look for a second set of eyes on this project. The potential for abuse is extreme, as I'm sure you're aware.

[Qubit's reluctant to admit it, but the man has a point. If he didn't agree on some level, he wouldn't have contacted him in the first place.]

What went wrong? Out of curiosity.

[In catastrophic fashion goes unsaid, but he can infer it.] Sorry to hear that. I hope no one was too badly hurt.

I have a gate, but it doesn't work as intended, obviously. Still trying to pin down why. If you want to look over the data from its initial test run, we can arrange that, although I'd rather not transmit it over the network.

That works. Are you in De Chima? There's a cafe at [intersection], whenever you're free.

You don't have to, Heropa's fine as well. I can be pretty much anywhere, actually. Teleportals.

Not off the top of my head, but I'm sure I can find it. I've heard of the place - sort of a boarding school, isn't it?

Good, good. These are stressful circumstances all around, but I'm glad the children have resources like that available to them. They need a good support network more than anyone.

[Even without being thrust into a world not your own, it's hard being a kid and growing up with powers. Qubit's acutely aware how lucky his younger self was. Not everyone had it so good.]

How's lunchtime tomorrow sound?

All right, see you then.

[The next day, he shows up a little early, portaling in just outside the building. It's a lot bigger than he was expecting, to be honest. Inside, it's almost cavernous - he may spot a couple of students down the hall on their way to lunch, but that's it. Still, he finds Callaghan's office easily, and knocks even if the door is open.]

Afternoon. Is it always this quiet?
