Basilic received the blob from Jesse, who then disappeared out the hole in the side of the bus. He thought it was a miracle Beth hadn’t been pulled over by cops. Then Phoebe walked up and asked “Excuse me, who are you?” very faintly. He thrust the blob in his pocket, zipped it securely, and then put his arms around Phoebe, who seemed to be a bit unsteady on her feet.
“Phoebe? Phoebe, are you OK?” he asked, concern in his eyes. He could feel others around him, but blocked them out, focussing his energy on the phoenix in front of him. He hadn’t transferred energy in at least a decade, and only managed a small booster, but it put some colour in her face.
