Who am I?

“… do you smell smoke?”, Tensai said sniffing the air.

“Yea, you just blew up your lab again didn’t you?”, smirked Lunar.

“No, not that, I mean real smoke… Oh… that would do it”, said Tensai looking out the window to the street below, where a mob had formed.  “The torches are a nice touch… pardon, I beleive they want to talk to me.”

Watching Tensai head downstairs, Lunar sighed, “Great, what do I have to replace now?”

*SLAM* *SLAM* *SLAM* “WE KNOW YOUR IN THERE!”, Roared the croud.

Tensai threw the door open wide, startling the front most of the group, and with a smile asked, “Hello, Is there something I can do for you?”

Taken aback, the tallest one in the front scooted forward, mostly because he was shoved by the shorter one behind him.  Nervously, he replied, “um.. well Me and a few of the locals were concerned…”

The group behind him sheepishly sputed murmurs of ‘yea’ and ‘we ought to know’.

He continued, gaining some confidence from the thin show of support, “uh, some of us are concerned that you might be… um… ‘dangerous’ to our town, and um, would like to know why you are here.” He trailed off like a schoolkid worried the teacher was about to smack him.

Tensai smiled broadly, in one of those smiles a cat gets before they strike, “Well, why didn’t you ask earlier?”

–Tune in again, Tensai will explain the fantastic science of time travel, and the financing required to do it! (and what they do if you don’t pay up!)
