It was one of those rare, quiet evenings on Muir Island. Even rarer, Kitty was having it all to herself. Everyone was doing their own thing, on the mainland, or somewhere else. Brian and Meggan had gone to visit Betsy while she and Warren were on business in London. They had invited Kitty to go with them, but she turned them down. Instead, Kitty had opted to give some needed attention to the security systems. With a little help with her phasing--and being extremely careful not to come into contact with anything live--she was chest deep in gears, wires, and circuitry, and couldn't be happier.
