but Estril stopped him. It's a trap, they said.

Huh? Julia's hand was awkwardly frozen halfway out.

I'm pretty sure She's tried this on those mobiles we read about a while back... Estril turned their thoughts to pulling up the relevant information from the Powers, and Julian moved his hand back as he listened in.

Soon enough, Julian realized what he'd been about to sign up for. Thanks, buddy, he said.

It's nothing, Estril reassured him. You'd have done the same for me.

By the time Julian got around to replying, the silence had gotten awkward. "No thanks," he said. "I know how that one goes."
