"Whoaaaaa," says Alaior.

"I still don't understand what she's doing here. Or why the sparks or the floating - do you suppose she's dangerous -"

"Well we shouldn't presume - let's call the senator's office, though, Luta can make the call."

"Ooh -" Someone pulls a rectangle out of her pocket.

She peers curiously at the rectangle.

Permalink

Luta taps the rectangle.

"But she doesn't even know our senator," says Alaior.

"She's going to make a good first impression," says one of the other adults.

Alaior watches the rectangle and waits.

Permalink

She points at the rectangle and makes a querying noise.

Permalink

"...she doesn't want my pocket everything, does she?" asks Luta. "I'm on the call queue."

"Who knows?" wonders another adult.

Permalink

"...Want knows," she tries.

Permalink

Alaior giggles at her.

"Like a parrot," someone says. "Parrot alien."

Permalink

"Understand," she insists.

Permalink

"If you can understand Oahkar how come you can't speak it?" asks Alaior.

Permalink

She waves a hand and a cloud of multicolored mist comes out. "Magic," she says in Genoshan.

Permalink

"I don't speak alien," Alaior says.

Permalink

She sighs.

She waves a hand, throwing mist. She snaps her fingers, throwing sparks. She hops a few inches higher into the air. And then she points at her ear.

"You're like a movie," says Alaior. "I wanna be a movie."

Permalink

"Movie?"

Permalink

"Yeah!"

Permalink

"Want understand."

Permalink

"Ummmmm..." She sings the alphabet.

Permalink

This is useful! She sings it back.

Permalink

Alaior giggles. Luta is still in the call queue. Adults are variously peering over her shoulder, finishing their dinner, or watching Odette and Illia warily.

Permalink

This is reasonable.

Odette explains the alphabet song to Illia.

Permalink

Illia also sings the alphabet song, then.

Permalink

Alaior claps.

Permalink

"Cute kid."

Permalink

"Mhm."

Permalink

"Want understand--Senator?" she tries.
