'Wait and see,' he replied softly.
'What exactly does it do?' I asked again. My master explained that you talk directly to someone from a large distance. I placed my finger on one of the symbols and turned the dial. It buzzed.
'Hello?' said a voice.
'Witchcraft!' I cried, 'you will pay for this!' Master looked at me and simply said, 'I might pay but I might change the world.'
