Uh huh.

They fly to Biyan. Emily magically caffeinates all the adults,

Permalink

I don't know where they're keeping the kids.

Permalink

Do you know who might know? I don't like reading minds without consent but this probably qualifies as enough of an emergency.

Permalink

I guess whoever's in charge? Maybe the reds have an idea.

Permalink

Yeah, talking to them first seems like a good idea.

Permalink

He points them towards Biyan.

Permalink

They fly Biyan-wards. 

Eventually they cross what Telkam might or might not recognize as the border.

Permalink

He does not! He isn't actually up on his geography.

Permalink

Makes sense.

Eventually they reach the city.

How do I identify the red district?

Permalink

It's not as tall, usually, because we can't build there and they don't have heavy machinery...

Permalink

Of course, she snorts, and looks around for a less-tall area.

Permalink

It's on what might have been the outskirts of town a long time ago before the town expanded dramatically into a city larger than any on Earth.

Permalink

The big cities kind of make sense, with the population problem.

Should we just land, or is there something else we could do that would be less likely to spook them?

Permalink

I think most not-spooky things would be slow.

Permalink

Yeah okay. Would it help any if you turned our hair red?

Permalink

Probably. Might be easiest to say you are red-caste aliens, it'd make more sense if it were red aliens.

Permalink

We don't have castes though. We could lie about it, I guess, it just feels weird to use a lie as a foundation to build trust on.

Permalink

Yeah. Dunno. He turns their hair red.

Permalink

We'll see what happens, I guess.

She lands.

She re-visibles them.

Permalink

Reds startle! They scatter.

Permalink

Edie waits to see if anyone has non-scatter reactions.

Permalink

Nope it's all scattering. They are now all indoors.

Permalink

Crap. Well. Not unjustified. But crap.

She considers a general telepathic broadcast, decides that would be a terrible idea, and glances around at windows.

Permalink

Some reds are peeking a little.
