Cory doesn't talk to her, but eventually a robot approaches and says hello.

Even more skeptical face.

"Hey. You Sing?"

After that there's the worst person Zari personally knows whom she'd be hypothetically willing to send into another universe with a superintelligent AI and whom she can get on short notice; and then there's her very excited five-year-old niece; and then there's a moral philosopher.

And then there's Zari herself, for real this time, together with the telepath who sends a quick message to Jeanne before returning.

This time, after the introductions and explanations, Zari adds, "I'm satisfied enough for the moment that I'm calling in some real authorities, since I'm hardly the only one who needs to be satisfied. In the meantime, because my sister is delightfully pragmatic, I've suggested to her that she obtain the wherewithal to commit suitably irreversible suicide, and relocate to somewhere you couldn't interfere in time. Of course I hope very much that this is all groundless paranoia, but you understand that if things go south, we can't risk leaving you with access to a psion. Least of all one who is also such a useful hostage."

"I appreciate it. Is there anything I can do for you in the meantime, while I'm getting in touch with people?"

"I would appreciate the best speed you can achieve."
