>Is there anyone here with us?
>Who are you?
The planchette didn't move.
>Would you like to say something?
Rick sighed audibly. Danes cautioned: "Don't remove your finger from the planchette, Mr Meredith."
>Is there any-?
Before Danes could finish, the planchette flung itself across the table between Maya and Rick and hit the far wall, snapping into three pieces. Tisha screamed, Rick bolted upright and Harry Danes said quietly
"Calm, my friends. That's not uncommon."
But he said nothing more as he retrieved the broken pieces and dropped them into the waste bin.
