Tadashi's scream stops short when he stops falling, and he takes three big gulping breaths.

And then he sees what stopped his fall, and his mouth drops open for a different reason. 

"...what?"

Winged person says something that he doesn't understand and can't really guess if it is a question a statement. His rescuer appears to be mildly irritated.

She swoops and turns them around towards... a floating island with a town on top.

Permalink

"Okay...thank you?!" Tadashi tries. He grips tight to them until they begin to descend.

Permalink

Winged person apparently understands the general sentiment and shrugs.

As they approach it soon becomes clear the existence of more unusual kinds of people. Besides winged-people there are people with purple, blue or red skin walking around. And a couple of literally-black skinned people here and there. Winged person holds tightly by the shoulder and looks around until they spot someone in a uniform and catches their attention.

Uniformed person is a man, with indigo skin who exchanges a few words with winged-person. The uniformed man turns towards Tadashi and says something that sounds like a question.

Permalink

“Ah...hi?” Tadashi flaps his arms a bit and then shrugs. 

An idea strikes him, and he looks out for some paper and something to draw with. 

Permalink

The uniformed man has parchment and a quill in his travel bag. Once he deduces that Tadashi wants to write something he offers them to Tadashi.

Permalink

Tadashi takes them with a grateful smile, leans on the nearest flat surface, and starts sketching out a series of drawings describing how he got here. At least, what he guesses happened, and everything is simplified. 

He shows it to his rescuer and the other being. 

Permalink

His rescuer looks impatient by the point he finishes the drawing, but the uniformed person says a few words and the rescuer leaves with just a nod.

The uniformed person pulls Tadashi by the arm and waves his hand in a "follow me" sort of motion.

Permalink

Tadashi does, trying to not look as worried as he feels.

Uniformed person leads the way towards a building with glowing letters at the door. Up from a balcony someone with red skin watches them. Uniformed person and red skinned person exchanges a few words.

The red person looks at Tadashi for a minute and then there is a not-quite-sound-but-not-quite-thought in Tadashi's head.

<Hello. This is entirely non-invasive telepathy. Are you lost?>

 

Permalink

"Telepathy!?" Tadashi's eyes light up and he grins. 

He then realises saying it out loud is probably missing the point. 

<Uh...hi?> he thinks.

Permalink

<Hi!> He sends back. <I am Felicianus. I was told that you didn't speak the local language and show up out of nowhere?>

Permalink

<Nice to meet you! Nice to meet anyone, really. I’m Tadashi. I’m not from around here, so to speak. I believe I fell through some kind of portal, though they’re not really my area of expertise.>

Permalink

<Oh, that must have been alarming. Do you recognize anything? At least the shapes?>

Permalink

<Alarming is one word for it. Yes, everyone is shaped like the are in my world, but the skin colour and wings are different. Very different.>

Permalink

Felicianus frowns. He exchanges a few words with the uniformed person. <That's not what I meant. I mean... what different shapes people can change to and from.>

Permalink

<Ah...none? The form we’re born with is kinda it.>

Permalink

<Oh, dear. Well, you really are far away from home... and you're gonna need a place to say. Do you want to stay here?>

Permalink

<I...if it’s no trouble? That would be really nice.>

He is a long way from home. He wonders what his brother and Aunt think happened. 

Permalink

<I am so sorry. But there might be a way for magic to get you back.>

Permalink

<Wha- Oh, right. Telepathy. Thank you, I just hope that somehow they know I’m all right.>

He perks up somewhat at ‘magic’. <This world has magic? That’s amazing!> He can’t hide the thought that he would love to study it. 

Permalink

<Do you need a hug? And, yes this world has magic. And if I can flatter myself, I am one of the most magical people around.>

Permalink

<If the most magical person around wouldn’t mind giving me s hug, it would be welcome.>

He also can’t lie to himself that Felicianus is quite attractive. 

Permalink

Felicianus puts his arms around Tadashi.

He is warmer than a regular human should be, but that only adds to the hug.

Permalink

Warmer than usual should remind him of something, but once Felicianus’ arms come around him, it’s all he can do to cling back and not think of home.
