Jenn seriously looks like she's considering it. "I don't know this gun well enough."

Instead, she goes and knocks on the bathroom door.

Permalink

"Something up?" Bina calls.

Permalink

"We have company."

Permalink

"...Crap. Uh. How easily can we run?"

Permalink

"Not sure. Sounds from the hall, crazy redhead watching the balcony."

Permalink

"We're nearly done here," Lainey says. "And you shouldn't be running, B."

Permalink

"I'm fine!" Bina protests. "And uhhhh that sounds like all our exits..."

Except the watch. Or another time machine.

Permalink

"Tell your knees that," Lainey pokes at said knees gently.

Permalink

"You guys got a map of the area? Might be able to figure something out."

Permalink

"Uh, I don't? Just - the internet."

Permalink

"You're done," Lainey declares.

Permalink

"Brownouts make the Internet...sketchy as a resource."

Permalink

"Uh, Lainey, any maps?"

Crap crap crap...

Permalink

Pause. "Yeah, I've got one I think. Dad gave me a street map? It'll take me a moment to dig it up."

Permalink

"Do we have that long?" Bina asks Jenn.

Permalink

"...We might be able to buy it."

Permalink

"...There comes a point where we'd be putting - everyone - at risk, and limiting our options to just the watch, assuming I can program it while being attacked..."

Permalink

"I wouldn't want to bet on being able to buy the time."

How close are the sounds?

Permalink

Pretty close! Definitely more hallway than stairs.

Permalink

"Crap. Uh - " She shakes her head. "I think we need to use the watch, or some other machine. And take Lainey. I'm not leaving her."

Permalink

"I wouldn't ask you to. We need to hurry."

Permalink

"I'm still not fast with the watch - the n-continuous one we grabbed is basically point and click, right?"

Permalink

"Yeah. Probably our best bet to try and buy ourselves some--Ha. Time."

Permalink

"Right, I'll get that - "

And she pulls off her backpack, takes a lunchbox out of it, and flips the box open - "We should maybe hide this, it's not coming with us - "

Inside the box is a bunch of science fiction bullshit Bina suspects works on If You Really Believe, but has been trying to learn the engineering specs for. A dial puts their time at a few seconds ago, so they'll catch up to their PTP quickly and then even if Ira finds the box she can't snap them back to here, three more dials lets her set location to a nearby park...

"Back of the kitchen cupboard? The one with all the cleaning supplies?"
