With a sigh, Sam entered the women's bathroom. He walked over to a mirror and looked at his reflection. He saw a young woman with long blond hair, pulled back in a French braid. He saw green eyes hidden behind wire rimmed glasses. Her face was rather plain but her figure was slender and attractive. "You are Trinity Psyche King and you're sixteen, almost seventeen, years old. You're in Ft.Collins, Colorado. Colorado State University to be exact. It's July 28, 1997." "1997?" Sam said, turning to face the hologram. "This is after I first Leaped, isn't it?" "You remember!" "Not exactly. I remember that it was in the 90's and I'm guessing that this is after it." Sam said. Al studied Sam for a moment before answering. "You're right. I can't tell you exactly what date, but it was before 1997." "What year is it there?" Sam asked. "Sa-am! You know I can't tell you that!" Al glared at his best friend. Sam paused before sighing and asking, "why am I here?" Al looked at the handlink that was blinking and glowing in his hand. "Ziggy says that there's a ninety-two point six chance that you're here to save the lives of a bunch of kids." "What kids-oh, those two. Um, Grant and Sapphire, right?" Al consulted the handlink again. "That would be Grant and Sapphire Jackson. Grant's twin is, uh, Sinda. Grant and Sapphire are your best friends and so is a girl name Nin." "Nin?" Sam asked. Al slapped the handlink against his palm. "Oh, Nina. Nina Matthews. You and she go to school together." "Nevermind that, Al. Why am I here, exactly?" "Ziggy says that it's raining." Al looked at the handlink, puzzled. "Raining?" "Yeah, it's raining. What about it?" Sam asked, equally confused. "Raining? Come on, Ziggy! Gushie, tell him to quit messing around!" Al yelled. He slapped the handlink again. "Oh, it's raining. Um, Sam, Ziggy says that there's a flood tonight and the whole group that you're here with*well, you all d-die."
