Iryi is walking past the old Wall remnant, running her hand against (newer) fense posts and smiling at the sun when she disappears.
"Iryi." Nervousness. Wanting to - throw herself at Nausicaa and tell her how she loves her. Or ask if she's forgiven for not listening. But she won't do that right now.
"...Iryi. It's... A pretty name." She hugs herself.
Eee Nausicaa thinks her name is pretty. She didn't pick her name that's not something she did.
"Thank you!" (It's a much more earnest thank you than one might generally expect for name compliments.)
"Where - do you have somewhere to stay?"
But you don't have to help me if you don't want to."
Can she feel the thingCan she feel the thing
Shakily: "I want to. People deserve help."
She nods hard. (eee look her beloved is great).
She should also say thank you. "Thank you."
She turns to look at her friends - "Uh, guys, sorry for - this..."
"It's okay, Nausicaa. I totally don't mind if Iryi says with us. Right Sue?"
Sue nods. She seems tense, still.
"Are you ok?" Iryi asks her, quick look at Nausicaa. "Is it something about me? Can I fix it?" (These are definitely Nausicaa's friends).
Small smile. "I think she's alright, just stressed and tired."
"...are you ok?
Can I help?"
"I'm... I'm going to be okay. Hopefully. And... You've helped a lot already."
! ! (She lights up, pretty visibly even though she's trying to restrain it a little.)
She is pretty obviously waiting for Nausicaa to tell her what to do next.
Nod. "It's - we should get. You settled in. And all."
She stands, glances at her friends, then says: "Me and Sue live together, pretty nearby."
She is clearly ready to go in whatever direction Nausicaa indicates!
Then, after a few more shaky breaths, she'll lead the way - including Sue and Sakura, as well as Iryi - to a small two-bedroom apartment. It's decorated in a mixture of plain, simply styled things and a riot of warm colors (at least one of the girls has a fondness for swirls and spirals and the color orange).
She thinks it's really pretty.
She also stares around a lot while they walk.
The city's modern, glass-walled buildings and asphalt and cars, though Nausicaa keeps them away from the more trafficked footpaths. "So, uh, where're you from?" she asks, once they're inside. " - And, uh, want something to drink?" Help she has no idea how to host guests...
"Yes, thank you. If it's not trouble."
She has never seen any of these things in person before. She's seen pictures and made-images of things kind of like them. (It's kind of starting to hit her now that she's fallen into another world (and found her beloved there! Like a legend!), though a lot of her is still too focused on Nausicaa and worrying and not knowing things yet for it to hit her the whole way).
"Um - somewhere else? I'm - not sure how to explain?" How did people explain this in Legends?
She takes a little wind of light, pulls it apart until it makes an image in the air - a cozy looking village, neat paths and little gardens, though if you look closer you'll notice unusual things like arcs of water taking care of a garden on their own, or road-stones that shine.
"I think some people say we're another world, but we're not really entirely a world like a lot of other worlds are. Like a little world, or a piece of a world? But we're - not a crossroads, but like something off a crossroads. People stumble in. Sometimes we can go out. Or fall out, even though we didn't mean to."
"Do you know how it works?" Sakura asks, leaning in a bit. "That sounds fascinating... Probably possible to make with a wish, though you'd need a lot of potential..."
She ducks her head. "I'm sorry, I don't really. I don't think any of us know all the way. There are mages that work with the edges, but I hadn't learned yet." She should have studied more. (This emotion, like most of hers, is probably pretty visible.)
