"Well Tai, since you are our newest addition to the group, how long have you been with the Federation?"
"A few months.", was Tai's curt reply.
How is this relevant? Tai thought to himself. Something else was occupying his thoughts though. He was concerned with this "Doctor Hyman". Leave a man alone with his toys for a year, he won't come back out sane. Should he speak up? No. If these mages are half as good as they think they are, they'll figure it out themselves.
