Topher was annoyed.

He had had a Creepy Construction Worker communicator (which in itself was cool) and access to the network that it ran on (which was much cooler), and now he didn't. All thanks to Riley.

Well, mostly thanks to Electroclash, if you wanted to get technical. The point was that Topher didn't think it was his own fault. But he'd wasted his time with the ECHO and hadn't learned much beyond one dumb person's name, which didn't do a lot of good seeing as the supposedly "multiversal" internet seemed pretty determined not to show any results on the good doctor. And he still didn't know what a stupid Vault was, besides the place where Barry Plodder kept all his money in the wizard bank.

He could sketch the communicator from memory, but that wouldn't do a lot of good without access to the network. There was a small chance that he could make his laptop try to reconnect if he constructed something really similar to the ECHO, but that probably wasn't going to happen.

...Definitely wasn't going to happen. Still, sketching the dumb thing was at least more useful than sitting around and sulking next to Broca II, so he sat at his desk with some mechanical pencils and started to do just that.

After class, Billy had an apple pie to share, and the first person it made sense to share with was Topher. "Hey, are you here?" he called, peeking in past the open door anyway. "Oh, you look busy."

"It's pie," Billy said, coming in and setting the pie down on the nearest clean flat surface. "They had us bake in Pinkie Pie's class today, like that's going to make things better or something."

"You could, but only if the pie was like, gross or made out of a bad fruit or something. Otherwise it would be a sad waste of pie," Billy said, laughing softly to try to keep things light. "How are you doing. Have you run into anything weird?"

"I didn't get nearly that far!" Billy said. "What did the doctor say? Does she know what's in the vault?" Billy had a lot of ideas, some of which were terrible and some of which were awesome.

"Awww, thank you." Yes, Billy was taking that as a compliment. "Electroclash is really mean, I'm sorry. Was the communicator cool?"

"Just researching, and getting nowhere. You're staying safe, right?" Of course he was, it was Topher, but Billy still had to ask.
