Vague and grandiose chat about motivated capitalism take up the rest of the wizards' evening. Plans are made for Cam to learn about worldgates the following (skipped from school with Renée's kind accomplicehood) day and, assuming he catches on quickly enough, to go to New York and meet Jenny and talk about her operating as their business proxy.

Presently it's bedtime, and Cam goes to his room and Matilda and Jellybean go to theirs and Cam has the chance to ask Grace what on earth she meant.

"Well," Grace says, whispering, "you've been holding off on labeling because you're only fourteen, but people stabilize at different ages, don't they? And as near as I can tell you've been stable for almost a year now. Not on either, but on whichever. I think you're just as likely to get a crush on Jellybean as Matilda and vice-versa, and I don't think it's because you're still undeclared, I think you're just wired that way."

Cam considers this. "Okay," he says. "I can live with that."

"I should hope so," says Grace, and Cam laughs, and he goes to sleep.

He's still on a sleep cycle appropriate to school, so he may be up before Jellybean and Matilda in the morning.

"I can find us one!" says Jellybean. "I'm really good at it."

Jellybean takes the lead.

His outfit receives some odd looks. He does not appear to give a single shred of a fuck.

On they go!

A worldgate locus, it turns out - he finds one in an alley behind a bus station - is not distinguishable by any of the ordinary senses. But there's definitely something there.

Matilda takes over with the technical explanations.

Matilda demonstrates, with her usual precision and efficiency.

The gate she opens has someone's living room on the other side.

"You... call her Jenny?" says Matilda, trying and failing to imagine another option. "And no, she's at work. If we want to visit her we should do it on a weekend."

"Oh, gate there," says Matilda. "You can set it up, for the practice, and we'll all power it because it's more efficient that way."

They all troop through; the gate closes behind them.

"Time to do science!" says Matilda. Jellybean laughs.

Potatoes, it turns out, are about on the level of grass and muffins as far as higher cognition goes.

Jellybean still manages to convince his to do a cute little dance.

"So?" says Jellybean. The potato pirouettes.

Jellybean continues playing with his dancing potato.

His manual doesn't have anything specific to say about that. There are no preexisting spells to accomplish these aims.

Jellybean overhears the question and asks, "Niacin flush?"

"Huh," says Jellybean. He captures his dancing potato and starts talking to it again.
