  • Mood:
Polexia felt kind of bad about leaving William in New York without any of the girls to take care of him. (And she knew that they had.) But a deal’s a deal, after all, and they had to be gone before the band left the city. And it was England – she couldn’t resist. She kept telling herself it wasn’t for forever – just a little while. She’d meet up with the guys again when Deep Purple’s tour was over. It’d be like old times again.

The flight got delayed, though, and she ended up curled in an uncomfortable airport chair, trying to catch a few minutes of sleep since she never could manage on planes, one of the roadies’ leather jackets slung over her like a blanket. There were a couple of other girls along but she could tell they were just groupies, trophy-hunters; not Band-Aides. Penny and Sapphire had trained her well: she could always tell the difference.

She must have dozed off, though, because she awoke to a pair of hands shaking her gently. It took her a second to focus, but she knew almost instantly she wasn’t in the airport. No plasticky chairs, none of the entourage. “H’lo?” she muttered, pressing a hand to her forehead. “Where am I?”

Michelle glanced through the gates- there were always new arrivals anyway. Being the concerned citizen that Michelle was, she approached the gates, opening them.

"Hey."
"Hey," Polexia returned, still disoriented. "Did I have some kinda blackout or am I just dreaming?"
Michelle shook her head. "No, unfortunately, you've ended up in another place entirely."
"...England?" Polexia questioned hopefully, recognizing the girl's accent and praying she'd just managed to somehow forget everything leading up to where she found herself.
She sighed, shaking her head. "Fuck, I wish," Michelle lamented. "No one knows where this place is."
"So. I guess it's safe to say nobody knows how we got here, then, either," Polexia muttered.
She shook her head again. "Sorry, there's, like... no way out," Michelle sighed. "I've tried. People have tried. Hopefully a friend shows up."
"Damn," Polexia said under her breath. "And... what do we *do* here?"
"Live, eat, sit on our asses, meet unusual people..."
"Define 'unusual,'" Polexia smirked. "Cause I've known some pretty interesting ones..."
"Oh, your definition of unusual will most certain change when you meet these people..."
"Now I'm intrigued," Polexia grinned.

Seamus tilted his head at the girl lying in front of the gates.

"I should be starting to get used to saying this, but... I'm afraid you aren't where you thought you were or where you thought you were going," he said with a sigh, opening the gates and crouching next to her. "The name's Seamus and I'm only slightly less confused about the situation than you are. Sorry."
"Um, no problem," Polexia returned, shrugging. "I'm Polexia. Hi."
Seamus stood up, offering her a hand up. "Are you okay? The transition can be... Jarring."
Polexia took his hand gratefully, raising an eyebrow at his surprisingly gentlemanly behavior. "I think so... uhm, do you know exactly where we are?"
"Er, not exactly, no," Seamus replied apologetically. "I just know it's filled with houses and loads of people from different places and all your needs are inexplicably taken care of. It's called The Estates."
"The Estates," Polexia murmured, turning it over in her mind. "Well - how's it work, then? Just... find a house and go to it?"
Seamus nodded. "For the most part. If a house isn't taken it'll be unlocked and with the keys inside."
Polexia blinked in surprise. "Really. Easy as that? I'm... kind of impressed, actually."
"Impressed?"
"Free houses," Polexia laughed. "I'm, uh... well, I've been on the road awhile. It actually might be kind of nice to have an actual house, instead of a hotel room that I end up sharing with three other girls and a fifteen-year-old boy."
"... Fifteen-year-old-boy?" Seamus laughed. "Lucky boy."
"You could say that, yeah," Polexia grinned. "He was - uhm - well educated by the time he got home. I'll just leave it at that."

She looked around. "Besides places to live - what's around here?"
"Er, well, I hear there's a library?" Seamus replied, chuckling a little. "And stores and such, though I'm not really sure if they could be called stores. There isn't really a purpose for money, here."
