1311 words, and Lauren is coming to grips with impossible truth

That’s the worst sort, of course. The thing that you know can’t be true because it would defy the laws of physics — except that, irrefutably, you have right before you the proof that this thing is, in fact, truer than shit, and just as messy.

Poor Lauren. Sucks to be her — that’s all I have to say. And old Jake isn’t taking the arrival of the semi-invisible green guy in the hallway any to well, either. Jake’s pretty steady for a three-year-old, but he almost died recently and is still a bit twitchy about anything that smacks of gates, otherworlds, or magic.

Time for more on that, I think.
