Abra, Dan, Higgs
What the fuck? As a rule, Dan didn't startle at much - it was hard to be surprised when you had very vague heads-ups about most things - but when all those faces all turned to glare at Higgs with such obvious anger, he nearly jumped out of Abra and that would have been the wrong time for that. As it was, he managed to stay where he was, tucked away for now.
And then he spotted himself, glaring at Higgs. He was in front of his other self in an instant. This version of him had been choked. Obviously. If he was still mostly in his body, his skin would have crawled. As it was, his body back on Wheel 5 shuddered all over for a moment.
All his months of working with the kids and the other telepaths meant that Dan was able to keep his mental voice soft and quiet, meant for one person only - Bill had struggled with switching between group zip-zips and individual ones for a while, and Dan had worked on it with him, and those skills came in very handy right now - and that one person was the version of himself he was standing in front of.
