New Palisades has a lot of convenient out of the way locations like thisCharacters: Ada Rory
Ada and Rory are standing in the distance on a sandy beach next to a body of water. A bright morning sun shines down on them.
Ada: Why do we have to start so early?
Rory: The fewer witnesses the better. Now quit whining and show me what your powers can do.
A close up of Rory, looking fairly mischievous. She's holding a rubik's cube.
Rory: The first test is to have you copy a scrambled rubik's cube
Rory twists the Rubik's cube
Ada holds out her hand and concentrates
A rubik's cube pops out of thin air above Ada's hand
Rory is holding both Rubik's cubes in her hands. They look identical. Ada is bent over close to them, scrutinizing them for differences
Rory: Well done. Now I want to see if you can copy it without being able to see its configuration
Ada looks dubiously at Rory
Ada: I don't think I can do that.
Rory: Don't tell me what you can't do. Either do it or don't.
Ada screws up her face in concentration.
A solved rubik's cube materializes.
Ada looks at the copied cube with dismay.
Ada and Rory both smile as they hold identical solved rubik's cubes
Ada: Wow, I thought I'd screwed it up. I've never done that before!
Rory: Well I've never solved a rubik's cube before, so we're in new territory here!
