I guess I'll be the sucker.

I help David to the couch.

(In that case, I'm quiet, but I actually somehow had this marked as read when I hadn't read it. Whoops.)

So, how do you think we ought to bring them into the fold?

I... Well, I had a phone. I could just call them, but I worry that it's tapped.

I'm quiet, thinking.

(May have a post later if the silence draws on, but nothing has really occurred to me as a work around that I think Ronnie'd go for yet.)

"You had a phone? Where should it be?"

No sense musing about possible solutions unless there's actually still a phone to fiddle with, right?

(Oops)

I think he is refering to the thing that was in his head.

I'll try talking with Stitch, "You think we could use their homing devices to track them?

David reaches down a pulls out a small flip phone. It looks a bit banged up.

These were for regular conversations, and mine's seen better days it seems.

Stitch responds -

Of course. You cannot hide the signal. It is always there. Do you still have the device?

Looking at David, "Was the tracking/homing device the thing that was in your ear?"

Yeah, it was.

He looks at you weakly, Heather.

I smile at him, "So do you have any info on the device from when you were in his head Stitch?"

I try and reassure David. "She's good with that kind of stuff, she can see if it's bugged or not. I'm sure we'll figure something out."

I reach out and take the phone from David still smiling.

With the phone in hand, I retrieve the pieces that were saved from the device David gave a screwjob to.

I go over to a table that gives me some protection from sight, and hold one in each hand allowing Stitch to access through the hand.

"Okay, can we use the old homing device to track the other homing devices, and is this phone tapped?"

((Huh, and I thought it was just Heather.))

Stitch takes about 20 seconds to reconstruct the entire device. It is large enough that it would have taken surgery to place inside David's ear (unless it had been constructed in the ear canal). Stitch replies -

It relies on bio-electrical power. It is offline right now, but in working order. What do you mean, tapped?

I smile at my silliness, "Tapped means if I dial this phone,"I dial 0, "and when the other end connects, someone or something else connects also, to listen into the conversation. Of course, now that I dialed a number they are probably trying to find our location as well as listen in."

Anyone can do that anyways. I can do that now. I don't understand.

You can tell that the concept of security is being lost in translation. Imagine that!

I chuckle, "Well the point is that we don't want anyone listening to us, or tracking us. We just want to listen and track them!"

I give Heather a look, but try to keep the emotion out of my 'voice', not that I think Stitch would understand sarcasm. Why don't you just tell her like how she blocked me out? She understood it well enough then.

Stitch hears Veronica -

I can do that.
