"Hey, it's me again…"

Static feed eclipses the recorded video, for another moment or two, slicing audio, fuzzing.

Spike's forefinger presses down harshly on a keyboard button. He scrolls through the directory, picking another video. Faye's expression, more cheerful, her dimples popping as she waves.

"Love you…"
