"That's a lot better than not. So, uh, what's your universe like? What other languages are there?"

Permalink

"...Spanish? Portuguese? Japanese, Chinese, Arabic..."

Permalink

"Which ones of those are related to English?"

Permalink

"The first two. Oh, and French, I think it's related to French. And... German?"

Permalink

"What does the relationship look like? What language families are the other ones part of?"

Permalink

"I... don't know? I know some songs in all those languages though. Phonetically, I don't know what all the words mean."

Permalink

"Oh." She sounds disappointed. "Well, I'd love to have those recorded, but I understand if you have other priorities." 

Permalink

"I guess I need, like, a place to stay that isn't your house."

Permalink

"Yes. I suspect that there aren't procedures already in place for fictional-situation refugees, but there are procedures for people who need to cut all ties to their past, so hopefully that should generalize? I'm going to message the Department of Lifestyle Circumstances."

"...people who need to cut all ties to their past?"

Permalink

"It's not usual," she clarifies, "but sometimes there's a bad case of abuse or a stalker or something and somebody needs to just completely eradicate their previous social ties." 

Permalink

"...why don't you just arrest the stalker or whatever."

Permalink

"We...do? But sometimes the victim is that badly traumatized or afraid that the reform program will let them out before they're really ready and they'll relapse."

Permalink

"Huh. Okay."

Permalink

"It's really really not common, the Department of Lifestyle Circumstances handles a lot more stuff than just that." 

Permalink

"Then I guess we can see what they say about me and Catherine."

Permalink

"I guess so!" She puts the tinynet down. "I suppose I'm your host in the meantime...do you want to prioritize learning our alphabet?"

Permalink

"I guess that's probably a good idea."

Permalink

She writes it down and starts pointing at different letters and assigning phonemes.

It's not the most fun Rebecca has ever had but oh well.

Permalink

Peressa is occasionally distracted by how adorable the baby is. 

Permalink

Yes, she's a VERY adorable baby, isn't she just. Since Peressa has claimed not to be a kidnapper and all she may hold the very adorable baby if she likes.

Permalink

Aww! Awww! Peressa would definitely like! She is very careful and occasionally glances up at Rebecca to make sure she isn't overstepping anything. 

Permalink

It gives Rebecca's arms a break! She will try to learn this here alphabet.

Peressa helps despite being slightly hindered in pointing at things by this adorable armful of BABY. 

Eventually she hands the baby back and checks her tinynet. "You have an appointment with a social worker tomorrow at the fourteenth hour," she reports.
