Shard appears in front of Juliet
Permalink

Shard isn't going anywhere. He's just running. Skipping from one world to the next, hardly staying long enough to get his bearings, hoping for something, anything to break the pattern. Hoping to forget what he is leaving behind.

He arrives on a street. It's dark, but it is difficult to see the stars. There are cars and streetlights and concrete. He's landed somewhere almost advanced.
He doesn't need to sleep, but he wants to. Maybe there's an empty house nearby.

A girl turns the corner, looks at him assessingly.
Permalink

He notices her and turns to head in the opposite direction.

She does not appear to approve of him doing that. She speeds up and follows him.
Permalink

He doesn't try to run. He turns to face her.
"Am I trespassing? I'm sorry. I'll leave. Is this the wrong way?"

Permalink
"Wrong way to go where? Where're you headed?"
Permalink

"I don't know. Just looking for somewhere to sleep."

Permalink

"Yea, or traveling. I won't bother anyone."
Shard starts slowly backing away from her.

Permalink
"This isn't really a safe town and the shelter's curfew was hours ago, if you wander around in the open you're gonna get hurt."
Permalink

"People normally stay away from me, and I don't have anything worth stealing anyways."

Permalink
"Yeah, funny thing about muggers, they usually don't have x-ray vision or they'd find a more profitable occupation so they can't tell if you've got anything worth stealing till after they mug you."
Permalink

"No one's going to want to steal from me."
Shard continues to back up.

Permalink
"You seem real confident of that."
Permalink

"I'm surprised you haven't left. Don't you feel it?"

Permalink
"Is this the part where you explain that you're under a curse or something?"
Permalink

"You could call it that I guess, but it's just how I am."

Permalink
"Which is how, please do tell."
Permalink

"People don't like me. They don't like being around me. It gets worse the longer I stay. You already look annoyed, though it's usually faster."

Permalink
"D'you happen to know how this happened to you?"
Permalink

"I told you, it's just how I am."

Permalink
"Born that way? Are you all human?"
Permalink

"I wasn't ever born and I don't think I'm anything."

Permalink
"Never born, huh? How'd you start?"
Permalink

"I just was. I don't remember starting."

Permalink
"When was this?"
