It's Earth.

A bright day, as warm as English Spring ever gets, and Shelley is sitting under a tree, reading a book.

She has no idea what book, but she likes it. It would be better if those goblins would stop lurking, like she can't see them, they're right there, she isn't blind!

One shuffles sheepishly behind a rose bush as she eyes it sternly.

Really.

Michael was raised in the desert, and now lives on a planet with two suns. He shivers ostentatiously as he steps out from behind a tree.

"Kind of cold here."

"...it's May?" He pauses to consider this. "Huh. It's been a long time, but I think New Mexico winters were like this. And...two suns."

"Good point", he says with a grin, folding up to sit on the grass next to her. "So what's up, then?"

He thinks that over briefly, then shrugs.

"Dream books are like that."

"Oh, I'm really real", he assures her. "And really here. But this is a dream for all of that."

He smiles faintly at that.

"No. You're not, for sure. But that's what I came to tell you - it'll be a good ending."

"Visit other people's dreams?" He shrugs. "Only when I've got a reason to. It's Isabel's talent, really, and doing other people's tricks always takes it out of us."

Michael laughs.

"Don't worry so much. The worst that'll happen is I'll need to sleep a bit longer."

"Of course I do", he says, smile fading a little. "I haven't seen you for a long time, and... I wanted to talk to you."

"The doors are like that", he agrees. "Except when my door stops opening, it's... it's going to be because we seal them. And it's going to be soon."

"To save my world", he tells her seriously, despite the drama of the words. "I don't know from what, but I had another dream. If we don't do it real soon, it's going to be too late."

"Too late", he repeats quietly. "There's warnings you get that you have to listen to."

He doesn't want to tell her everybody's going to die if he doesn't do this.

"But, hey", he says gently. "I'm asleep in my bed in the palace now, and you're in Tackleford, not in the bar. If I can do this once..."

"Sure", he agrees. "Something like that. I can't promise anything, and it probably won't be often, but... I'll come visit you again if I can."

"The ones who come in from Antar will be. I don't know, maybe the Heart of Gold crew can still come in from there..."

"I'll miss you too", he says honestly. "A hell of a lot."

"I work as hard as I have to", he says, amused. "I always have. But for you, I'll take time off."

"You know I will." It's quiet, but sincere. "Even if you've done whatever you did to my clerk. I'll make sure they all know."

Michael glances around, uneasily, and starts to stand

"I have to go", he tells her quietly. "But I meant what I said. I'll try to come back."

"Goodbye, Shelley."

He's on his feet, looking down at her. And then he turns, and walks back to the tree he came from, and steps behind it.

He won't be there if she looks.
