moratorium_mai: (Curious)

[Continuing from this thread here.]

Mai felt a bit hesitant when Adia explained how she saw the Nexus. “...So, this place isn’t all that bad?” She wanted to believe that. ...Whoever or whatever put the portal in her neighborhood; this made her wonder if they thought she needed to be rescued. Not that I needed to be, came a self-conscious thought.

“Oh, okay. I’ll look there and ask. Thanks.” Mai picked up on Adia’s own nervousness, and didn't mind that she was. Some people in Tokyo tended to be rude or apathetic around strangers. Mai couldn’t compare her to any of them.

Surprise and curiosity could be seen all over her face when Adia mentioned she was from another planet. For real? "What's Leonis like? Do the people there travel around in spaceships?" She thought of the primetime show she watched with friends on weekends, which had mercenary human space travelers, good aliens, bad aliens, and different types aircraft they traveled in.

It was news to her, being told that her world was a myth. “Earth is pretty real, to what I know. Japan would be on the east side... Tokyo, where I live, is one of the biggest cities there.”

"I've never seen it in action personally, but the way it's been described to me, it's like an invisible forcefield goes up."

Adia smiles wistfully. "It sounds nice. Sometimes I'll walk around the shops here, but I don't have any money to spend."

"Well... all sorts of things, really, as long as it involves studying microscopic organisms. My research was on infectious diseases. Viruses, germs, that sort of thing." She seems quite comfortable talking about her work, but it's easy to be open and helpful when she doesn't have anything to hide.

"Well..." Adia looks around before adding diplomatically, "There are all sorts of people who visit the Nexus, and some of them are bad, or have done bad things. But they can't do anything while they're here except ask questions and talk to other people. If you meet anyone here you makes you uncomfortable, you can just walk away."

Adia's expression is sympathetic while she listens. Mai seems like a good kid, it's a shame that her father isn't being more open with her. "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. It's possible that his research is classified. I've worked on a few projects where I couldn't share the details."
