Volgier drove Sean Tanner back to his base but warned him that he was
likely to cause a stir, as he was meant to be dead. As soon
as they both walked in, Sean spotted Brandy Taylor sitting at a desk.
She was sipping a hot drink which she nearly spilt over herself. Volgier introduced her as Bridey Tyler. “I take it you know
Bridey?” “Yes, but on my Earth, she’s called Brandy
Taylor.” Bridey and the rest of the base had already heard
the tall tales of the return of Sean Tanner, but she didn’t believe
a word of it. She put her drink down, got up, and slapped Sean across
the face. “You coward, how could you leave it so long before
showing your face?” “I’m sorry, I’ve no idea what
you’re talking about.” Sean looked to Volgier. “I
should have told you. Alexander Farnnel died alongside our Sean
Tanner. They were on a mission together.” “I see,” said
Sean. Alexander Farnnel was obviously his friend Alex Farrington, and
although Sean had not known this version of Alex, his heart lunged
when he was told of his death.
Tanner is asked to work with Bridey Tyler. She finds it difficult at
first, as it is bringing memories of Alexander to the fore. She is
cold and snappy with Sean, to begin with, but soon remembers what it
was like working with her friend.
