It's a long ride from Kansas to North Carolina. She's staked a claim to the rear of the bus and spends it there, cuffed hands well out of sight.

Occasionally, she dozes, drifting in and out of consciousness as the noise of the road and quiet murmurs of other passengers break against her perception like waves on a beach. This is the closest to relaxed that she's come in... a while.

A somewhat startled person - blue, see through, no one else is responding like they can see her - appears in the middle of the bus, nearish her.

Permalink

She blinks. Attempts to dismiss the shade. It's not hers.

Not a cape, either. She can't sense it.

She straightens up in her seat, slowly.

Permalink

She turns to face the Keres, looking - disturbed, almost.

"Who are you?"

Permalink

"The Keres."

"Who are you."

Permalink

None of the other passengers are close enough to hear specifics over the sound of the bus, fortunately, so long as she keeps her voice low. The not-shade doesn't seem to have any trouble at all hearing or making herself heard, though.

"Anakin," she says, examining the Keres, before her attention turns outward and her brow furrows. (Something about the Keres seems to be bothering her, though she doesn't look at all afraid.)

"Where is this?"

Permalink

"Somewhere around St. Louis."

Permalink

"...Which sector or planet?"

Permalink

She frowns and her gaze briefly goes distant, before refocusing on the Keres.

"...Is your planet in contact with anyone else in the galaxy?"

Permalink

"Ah." She pauses, a bit awkwardly, then - "Alright."

Permalink


"Where are you from."

Permalink

"I'm a wanderer and always have been, so - it's hard to claim any one planet as home."

"I'm not from this planet, though; I mostly travel in the Mid and Outer Rims of the known galaxy."

Permalink

"...This is the only bit of the galaxy we know."

Permalink

"If you're pre-contact, that makes sense."

"Known to my civilization, I suppose."

Permalink

"Are you human?"

Permalink

"I used to be."

Permalink

"Humans evolved on this world. There's a fossil record."

Permalink

"...Huh."

"We don't have evidence of human evolution; the home world of the species is entirely unknown, and there's no well grounded theories."

Permalink

A little smile. "I enjoy archeology, so it might be an interesting mystery for later..."

She drifts a bit closer, though she mostly seems to be looking out the window.

"Would you like to know more of the galaxy?"

Permalink

"I'd like to show you it."

Permalink

"I'll want a ship regardless," she says. "My ability to teleport is apparently still very unreliable."

"And - it's nice to travel with company."
