|When skutters fry...|
The usual restaurant, a common hangout for the residents of twisted, and a place where the unusual, is perhaps considered to be perfectly normal. Perhaps then, the sudden crackling of magical energy will not attract much attention.. What might, however, is the sudden appearance of what looks to be a woman, about five and a half foot tall, of slender bulid, with shoulder-length black hair, cat ears and a tail.. wearing nothing at all but a fine coat of white fur all over her body, preserving her modesty.. Landing in a heap, the young woman quickly gets up, looking around, and seeing the television screens, she yelps.. then she sees one of the Skutters, and screams, a hand whipping out, and a bolt of lightning arcing at the unfortunate li'l guy!
Devi pouts from her perch on the celing. "Well that's just rude. Pinky could sing.." She sniffles dramtically, "And dance.." SNIFF. "AND SERVE ONE HELL OF A WHITE RUSSIAN!" Devi vanishes, only to reappear standing on floor level. Shoving her hands into her pockets, she circles the new person, eyeing her up and down.
Felina blinks at the slightly taller woman who appears in front of her, and she starts to slowly back up.. she looks extremely nervous, and her blue eyes narrow.. "Wh.. what the hell is this place? These machines? What is going on.. how can you be living so calmly around the machines.. when they are trying to wipe us all out.."
Devi says, "This...." She gestures with flair to the surrounding, "Is the Usual Restaurant, located in the Area of Twisted, in the region of Chaos... Or something like that." She stops at the bar, suddenly sitting upon it, one foot on each barstool near her with her elbows on her knees. "I don't know what Sci-Fi book you popped out of babe, but these machines are trying to wipe anything but the floor."
Felina shivers, and she shakes her head.. "No.. This can't be right.. For years.. the machines.. trying to kill everything.. Mother arista told me.. " she closes her eyes, now backing up to a wall, where she is dropping down.. she's obviously scared out of her mind.. "What is this 'Twisted'? "
Devi drops a wind up monkey with cymbals on the floor, the ringing echoing through-out the place. "I don't know where you're from. Let's call it world A. You are not in World A, or kansas. You are in world X, also known as Twisted. Although it's actually a place in time and space where collasping worlds merge to some sort of temporary stability." The Monkey chatters it's way towards Felina. Devi tilts her head to the side, green eyes watching the new girl.
Felina blins, opening her eyes, and she frowns.. "Another.. world...?" The closer the monkey gets, the more on edge she seems, a hand coming out, crackling with lightning.. but she douesn't launch it, she does have some control.. "Am.. am I safe here then?"
Felina shivers slightly.. and she nods.. "Just gotta be careful of a few machines? B.but how do you know which ones are safe? And.. what do you mean, a Microwave?" taking a couple of breaths, she tries to compose herself.. "I.. i am Felina. "
Devi says, "You feel it out. Seeing how as we don't come across a lot of evil machines, it's not an issue." Devi stands up, clearing her throat, pulling a scroll from her pocket and opening it. "My name is Devi. This is your new home, sorry for any loss that you might have experianced. If you are worried about a place to stay, the Interga Arms Hotel is across the street. You'll find lodging there. Everything is fairly easy here, with minumal world death threats. Well, no, I suppose that bit is still valid.... Hmm."
Felina hmms, and she nods faintly, as she gets back to her feet.. "Ok.. Devi.. Um, could you show me around at all? I guess there's a lot I need to know, isn't there?"
Devi says, "Well, sure, so long as I don't have to do it while you're on the floor." She looks up. "Oh, well. That's convienint. Um. Come on, I'll show you where you can find a place to crash, and point you towards, " She looks her up and down again. "The clothing store."
Felina nods.. "A place to crash sounds good.. " then as Devi looks her up and down, she just looks blankly back at her, "Clothing.. store? What do you mean?"
Devi eye's her some more. "This way." Devi trots out the door, the bell ringing as she opens it.
Felina shrugs, and she follows Devi quickly, looking around as she does so.. "Ok."
