There's a bar. There are some people talking at the bar. Orange and blue and orange is next to someone with dark brown hair -

 

(There're also greys leaning against the walls, uniformed) -

She doesn't recognize the uniform. This is alarming. Also, not the wardrobe. She blinks, frowning around at the room.

" - hey. This is Milliways. It's a place where there can be contact between different worlds. Is there an adult on your end who should know about this -"

Permalink

"...there are only my foster parents in the house besides me."

Permalink

"- if you'd like you can come over here and learn more and then decide if you want to go fetch them, once the door is closed time won't pass in your world until you open it."

Permalink

She considers this, looks thoughtfully at him, then shuts the door.

Permalink

Encouraging smile. "I'm Aitim."

Permalink

"I'm Avalor."

Permalink

" - are you really? From Voa?"

Permalink

"Yes."

Permalink

"The Milliways bar recommends very tasty drinks, would you like to try one?"

(Orange scoots over.)

Permalink

Headtilt. "The bar recommends them?"

Permalink

"The bar is a person. She communicates through napkins, and recommends drinks, and answers questions. It's very strange. I would at least have a hard time of faking it, they appear out of nowhere."

Permalink

Avalor steps up to the bar and climbs onto a stool. Bar greets her. She accepts a drink. It's blue.

Permalink

"I do. She died last year. - in my Amenta it's 3424," he adds to Avalor. "This is Mitros and his wife Iobel. They are both aliens, he's just a kind of alien with normal hair."

Permalink

She looks at Mitros and Iobel a little more closely. "...he looks like an orange you," she says. "I don't know you."

Permalink

"We met when you were thirty-two, you wouldn't know me. I'm Anitami. Mitros looks like me because he's me as a human - sometimes different worlds have the same people. We don't know why exactly. You can ask Bar if she's met anyone who is an instance of you."

      "Neli, I need to report -" says one of the grays -

"Yes, of course, go ahead, tell them there's access to another Amenta where it's - 3386?" he asks Avalor.

Permalink

"Yes," she murmurs. "Where did you meet me?"

Permalink

"I tagged along on a diplomatic visit to Voa. You get it back."

Permalink

 

"Oh."

Permalink

"The Oahk Empire collapses inside three years, they give all the secession interests what they want."

Permalink

"Good."

Permalink

"Yep. We might - speed it up, in your world, I'm not quite sure yet, it wasn't something we were expecting would come up - Voa is a peaceful and happy and just and good place, in my world -"

Permalink

Avalor looks up at him raptly over the rim of her drink.
