Okay. Leaving the workshop now. The countermeasure is secured in my safe.

I know better than to ask the reasoning behind this request. In 11 years you’ve never been wrong, and I don’t want to know about the future anyway. But that won’t make this easier for me to digest. Can we meet tomorrow? Now that the device is complete I need to know what the next steps are.

And please be careful with the countermeasure. It’s tremendously powerful, and sourcing the chronon particles for it alone has taken over a decade. Rebuilding would take me years and years.

I’m now going to ask you to do something that will sound counter-intuitive.

Leave the workshop. Leave the countermeasure behind, and do not return until tomorrow morning. As with all of my orders, it is best that I don’t go into further detail.

It’s finished! It’s finally finished!! Tests are all positive. I have officially constructed a working countermeasure for a Fracture in time. I can’t prove it, obviously, since there’s no Fracture to deploy it against, but I believe it will work. It has passed every test I can conceive. There’s no reason I can see that it wouldn’t.

Given your knowledge of the future, I’m guessing you already knew this would be the date I completed my work. This day has been a long time coming. I was beginning to doubt it was possible.

I haven’t heard from you in almost two years now. Please tell me you are still out there.
