"The kind from Villarosa!"

"Where's that?"

"Figuring out where it is relative to here is what I need a starchart for."

"Ha, ha," he says tiredly. The lightbulb is changed. He climbs down his ladder and folds it up and heads down the stairs.

She throws up her hands and starts looking for someone else. 

Permalink

The next person she finds is just locking his apartment door behind him as he leaves. He looks at her quizzically but doesn't seem to have time.

Permalink

If he doesn't have time then he doesn't have time. She wouldn't expect him to want to take time out to help a stranger even if she didn't expect that she was going to have to do a lot more arguing before anyone took her seriously enough to actually direct her to a starchart. 

She keeps looking.

Two opposed apartments have their doors propped open so some kids who look about seven or eight can race between them, babbling excitedly about something.

Permalink

She peers into both to check for adults. 

Permalink

One has an adult who is having a conversation on a local electronic of some kind; the other has no obvious adults in evidence.

Permalink

She leans against a wall in the hallway and keeps an eye on the adult until they're done. 

Permalink

The adult looks at her, furrows her brow, concludes her conversation and pockets her device. "...hi? Are the kids bothering... you... who are you."

Permalink

"My name is Linda Serafini. Do you have any idea where I could find a star chart. I would say why but everyone else I've asked has decided I was making terrible jokes."

Permalink

"...have you tried Citrusing 'star chart'."

Permalink

"What is 'Citrus.'"

Permalink

"I don't know what they call it in other countries, but any search engine should do... why wasn't there an announcement about an international visitor, what are you here to do?"

Permalink

"I came here by accident. My AI hasn't figured out how to access the local networks yet."

Permalink

"...what do you mean?"

Permalink

 

"I...do not currently have a device capable of searching Citrus?" 

Permalink

"What happened to your pocket everything?"

Permalink

"Is that a local computer?"

Permalink

She takes hers out of her pocket and waves it a bit.

Permalink

"Yeah, I don't have one of those."

Permalink

"Did your organizer take it for being crazy on the internet?"

Permalink

"No. I'm not crazy, I am just very, very lost. Usually, I am not lost, and do not come off as crazy."

Much. Admittedly, she was a touch ambitious and eccentric, but she didn't think that would be helpful to explain right now.
