[[Continuing from here]]

Mai didn’t understand how this place existed, or how that there could be an actual way to contact her dad from here, another reality. She had no idea how he could find the Nexus hub either--but she could try to reach him, and tell him she hasn’t been harmed! Clinging to that hope, she started to calm down a little.

If Dad cared about her at all, then he would leave his laboratory to try to find her. All she had wanted was for him to be there for her, but this wasn’t what she had in mind. Unlike the times she’d get in trouble on purpose to get his attention, she was not in control at all of her current situation.

Mai felt like she had been holding her breath, and exhaled before a tentative smile appeared on her face. “Thank you.” This man, no one she had ever seen before, appeared genuinely concerned. He also seemed to know a lot about this place, so trusting him over getting more lost was definitely the better choice to make.
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.”
