"We could have been here sooner.  Uncle Lu --"

"You may trust your uncle to witch us from San Francisco to here.  I don't."

My machine swaps those two objects, such that they both appear in their new universes at each other’s original location. Subjectively, one object moves instantaneously from one place to the other, while the other takes the reverse trip.”

“Um, yes.”

“Is someone paying you for this?”

The Wizard wasn't amused. Then he made the other three disappear. "Son, you smell like you bathed in magic. How did you get here from there, outside, wherever, through my wards?"

What could I do? I showed him the spell.

I didn't know he would fuck it up.
