She smiles and heads in the direction she chose. "Me-ear-people word Quendi. Maybe Quendi city. City... hmm..." She thinks for a while about how to circumlocute for what she's looking for, finally shakes her head and says, "Maybe Quendi city."

"Eat?"

"Quendi not eat you!"

"Well good for them. I don't eat Quendi either."

Giggle.

"How'd you get out here alone?"

Permalink

"Uh..." She pauses in walking to draw the snake monster. "That eat me."

"I don't know what that is."

Permalink

"- huh. If I die, no thing, nothing to tell anyone."

Permalink

Sad nod.

"You can tell my family if you want but they'll be more interested in the language."

Permalink

"They will also want to know about you!" she insists.

Permalink

"I didn't say they wouldn't, just that they'd be more interested in the language. Lotsa people, not lotsa languages."

Permalink

Sigh.
