It's not a surprise that Thorne had a deadman's switch. It is a surprise that it's strong enough to actually damage this place. The kid says her actual servers are elsewhere, she'll be fine, but they need to get to the emergency evacuation point before it breaks.

it is a little broken already. They will just have to take the chance. 

Two adult women and a three-year-old girl land on the floor somewhere else with a thud.

A boy about the same age jumps. Frowns at them. Flees to behind the curtain and peeks out at them sucking his thumb. He has purple hair.

"...Well, this could have gone worse," she observes. They are somewhere not about to explode and not otherwise fatal!

 The little girl peers with interest at the little boy.

He hides behind the curtains again.

"I think we're technically home invaders, here, we should probably go."

"You're probably right," she sighs, and stands up and looks around for an obvious exit.

It looks like they're in kiddo's bedroom.

 

...someone else walks in. His hair is emerald green and he looks anxiously for the kid, who darts out from behind the curtains and into his arms.

Ah shit.

"I'm really sorry and this isn't what it looks like!"

Permalink

He does not seem to speak the language!

Permalink

...She tries the other languages she knows.

Permalink

He doesn't seem to speak those either!

Welp time for telepathy.

Hi! I'm sorry, this isn't what it looks like.

"Blagh!" he says out loud. The kid clings.

 

Uh! Okay! Can you hear me!

Permalink

Yeah. Sorry, we were--sort of fleeing a collapsing underground cavern and not aiming very well if at all, coming here in particular was a complete accident, we are not in your kid's room without your permission on purpose.

Are you aliens or just dressed like aliens for some reason.

Permalink

...Aliens? How are we dressed like aliens?

He tugs on his hair.

Ah. That's not dyed, is it.

Permalink

- actually it is, long story, but brown isn't a color hair comes in naturally, here.

Permalink

Where I'm from the hair colors people naturally have are black, brown, yellow, orange, and red. And you don't speak any of the languages I know. I guess we are probably aliens.

Permalink

Hi, aliens. I should maybe call my brother and my father.

Permalink

Your brother and father?

Permalink

My father will want the languages and my brother will be able to figure out how to tell the government without - shrug. Things.

Permalink

You know, governments. Maybe alien governments are better.

I don't know what yours are like but I hope not.
