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.”

"It's different," Adia says diplomatically. "You'll see a lot of things that will stretch your beliefs. But there's an anti-violence field, so you don't have to worry about being hurt, and there are things here that you won't find on your world." There are people here who will listen to your problems, but Adia isn't sure Mai is looking for that.

"Leonis was known for its wide plains," Adia replies. "We had a lot of vineyards. And flowers. Just about everyone knew how to ride a horse." She smiles a little at the mention of space travel. "Yes, we had spaceships... some we used to travel between planets, others we used for longer distances... I used to work on a research vessel called The Chiron."

Adia probably looks nothing like the characters from Mai's show. She looks more like a refugee, one of those poor people displaced from their home country by war. "Do you have those things in Japan? The flowers, I mean. And horses."
