"Huh.... I thought it would be weirder."

Mika stares out the window, transfixed by the exploding stars, "I think it's just as weird as it should be!" He says, distracted.

Sefoni shifts uncomfortably, glancing back at the door, "Milliways is the place they got the magic from, right?" She asks. "Isn't it supposed to be... sort of dangerous?"

Permalink

Ita looks around, observing the various patrons worriedly.

Permalink

Tepam looks at the ground, worried. "Mom mentioned... it might not be a clean place."

Permalink

Sefoni makes a quiet 'eep' noise, and shifts farther away from the walls, "Not clean? But, it's supposed to be a place to eat, right? How could they not keep it clean?" 

Permalink

Mika tears his eyes away from the window at that, shifting on his feet as he looks around. "The Bar's supposed to be a person, right? They'd know if it wasn't clean, probably." He steps over to the bar counter a little gingerly, standing on his tiptoes to see over it, "Excuse me?"

A napkin appears.

Hello! Would you like a drink? The first is free.

"Oooh!"

Permalink

"Oooh!!" Mika agrees, distracted by this offer. "What kinds of drinks do you have?"

Permalink

Sefoni huffs quietly, "Mika."

"Oh yeah, um, is it clean in here?" He adds. "Our parents were here before, and they said it maybe wasn't."

Permalink

"Actually clean. Clean by Amentan standards." Tepam adds.

That can be solved. And we offer a vast variety of drinks, but I am really good at guessing something the person will enjoy.

A tiny, one foot tall humanoid that appears almost entirely covered in glitter pops into view, flying with dragonfly wings.

Before they can express any reaction, they shoot a white glob that hits the middle of the room, detonates into a tiny mushroom cloud that covers everything with soap foam.

The foam doesn't sting their eyes, but still obstructs their vision and by the time the bubbles have dissolved (a few seconds) the creature is gone. And they feel like they just took a shower. There is an wonderful floral scent.

Mika shakes his head, and then the rest of his body, blinking hard.

"...I guess it's clean, now?" He says after a moment, "Thanks!" He tells Bar. "I'll have whatever you think I'll like, then," he adds, getting back to the topic of drinks. "Something really different!"

Permalink

Sefoni is still blinking around in confusion, "What kind of person was that?" She asks, bewildered. 

Permalink

"Me too."

A tall teacup with something hot and foamy materializes, next to something that looks like milkshake layered in multiple colors. Tepam takes the milkshake and drinks it.

!!!

"This is delicious."

Thank you. And that was a soap bubble fairy. You should remain clean for the next few hours. You were already clean before, but being careful seemed expedient.

Permalink

"Thank you," Sefoni says after reading this. She hesitantly orders something as well, asking for her favourite berry milkshake from home rather than anything more adventurous.

Permalink

Mika takes his drink, sipping at it carefully and getting foam all over his upper lip. "Mmmm," he hums, hugging his cup.

He looks around, licking the foam off, "We're supposed to go get someone, right? Cause the grown-ups will want to come see, especially now that it's clean. Except... we're stuck in the bunker garden," he realizes.

Permalink

Ita says quietly "Please..." to the Bar and gets something deep red and with bits of fruit. "We can't close the door and... Oh."

Permalink

"We can't even use our pocket everythings to send a message."

Permalink

"Should we just go, then?" Sefoni asks, looking around at the other patrons warily. 

Permalink

"We can't just go," Mika disagrees. "Even if we can't get anyone else, at least we're here! We should talk to people!"

Permalink

"We could get more magic! We have to!"

Permalink

"Yeah!" He turns away from the Bar to look around the room for someone interesting to talk to.

Permalink

The room isn't full, but there's a fair spread of people, some on their own and a few in small groups. Nearby, a man is watching them with some concern just barely visible in his expression. He's pretty obviously non-amentan - if his dark hair didn't give it away, his blue-grey skin would have. The table's he's sat at has a few books spread out on it, interspersed by sealed bottles of variously coloured liquid, and a couple of plant pots.

"How about we talk to him?" Mika suggests to Tepam.
