Nick led Charlie back to the lab, where they made their excuses to Ron and Dina. They then walked out to the main road, where they caught a city-bound tram.

It remained a beautiful morning, clear and warm. The university lay in the city’s inner suburbs, and it wasn’t long before they were entering the central business district. The streets started to clog with cars and trucks, and the occasional horse-drawn vehicle in from the country. The electric wires that powered the tram merged with others for telegraph and telephone until the sky looked like it had been scribbled on.
