“What? Where’s that smoke coming from?”

“Me! Blasted machine…”

“What happened?”

“I’m not sure… Wait. Damn. Damn!”

“Not good?”

“There’s a tooth missing from the relapse cog.”

“It’s broken?”

“No, the tooth’s missing. Gone. No longer here.”

“Gone? Where is it?”

“Somewhere else. Look, it’s hard to explain. The cog should have fifteen teeth. Now it only has fourteen.”

“Things can’t just disappear like that…can they?”

“Sometimes, yes. In some ways, that’s what the relapse cog is for but I don’t like it regressing like that without a reason. I especially don’t like it discharging the potential difference into me!”

“Oh. I see. Your hair’s still smoki…”

“I know!”
