Tripsy looked at the buildings in front and giggled. “Pretty houses, pretty, pretty houses”, she said in her high-pitched voice. Beau looked at her wishing she would shut up. Opening his case, he laid it on the table nearby and started plugging wires into the back of the case and then into sockets and other devices so it looked like a tangle of linguine dangling from the back of the case and then splaying out in different directions.
