Introduction:  Jim "Caliban" Fellows
Thursday, September 14, 2027 12:30
Gregg Hartmann Memorial School Room 313

Seventh period was always peaceful for Mr. Fellows - it was an open period. He'd just finished grading a stack of pop quizzes when he heard his classroom door open.

"Jimmy?"

He recognized that voice. Knew it intimately.

"Miranda?" He turned to look at her. How long had it been?  Twenty years?

Then, the fire alarms went off. Kids took to the hallways instantly, knocking Miranda into the room. She stumbled into one of the desks.

As if that triggered something, the building was rocked with an explosion. Mr. Fellows heard a small echo of phantom music.

Then an unfamiliar voice came over the loudspeakers. It was low and gravelly. "We don't want to hurt you," it said. "Return to your classrooms."

The students out in the hallways stopped and turned back to their classrooms.

Miranda looked frightened.  "What's going on, Jimmy?"

"I don't know," Jim growled, shaking his head. Of all the times for Miranda to walk back into his life...sweet Miranda who had wanted so badly to stay with a joker, to prove to herself and the world that she wouldn't let a turned card and a dead child destroy her relationship with her husband. Miranda who had ended up proving just as human as everybody else. Jim had long since given up blaming her. "Somebody's got the intercom and is using powers. This could be very bad.

Quickly--and unconsciously pulling himself upright enough that his knuckles didn't brush the floor--Caliban took his ex-wife's hand and guided her away from the door. He poked his head out the door, looking for anything beyond the milling students. "You could have picked a better day to renew our acquaintance, dear."
