The Machine #4


"So we're not leaking?"

"Yep. We're not leaking, and neither are they. So we just need to turn the machine off now."

"And that'll close it?"

"Er, no. That idiot has stuck a hole in the Universe. Hopefully it'll heal in a few million years..."

"Million years?"

"Yeah. It's not going away soon. Come on. We need to get inside. If only to stop getting irradiated."

"Oh, yeah. Forgot about that. Are we gonna die?"

"Nah, I think we'll be fine. Equivalent of a nasty, all-the-way-through, sunburn. Might need to take some Iodine just as a precaution."
