Trey thinks it’s a bit unfair that he can’t see his new acquaintance. “Where are you?” he asks.
“I’m just a little to the side of your three dimensional world. I could drop in — that is, part of me could — but that would sort of mess with the conservation of mass in your local vicinity, and the results might be unpleasant for all of us.”
“Well then,” Trey says, not wanting any trouble, “we shouldn’t go there.”
“Or more to the point,” Tera agrees, “I shouldn’t go there. I think you can hear me just fine from here — the air vibrations seem to do the right thing. And I can project 3D images into your world, so I don’t think we will have any problems communicating. Now tell me about this Ariel, and her wonderful design ideas.”
