"Why... why would I lie...? I mean... I came out of an electrical closet..." The one guy was really nice about it, but the other one kind of set me on edge and I was a bit concerned about it. I didn't want to be in trouble because my universe didn't exist here. That would be bad.

Njall laughed. "I don't even know what that last bit meant, but whatever it is I'm certain we've seen stranger. Remember those worms, Angfand?"
"I'd rather not."
"Well then," said Njall, as if that answered everything. "More stew?"

I looked at my empty bowl for a minute. ...There was more of that stuff? It... it was good stuff. But like, I was full. That was about all I ate in a day. Half a bowl of soup. "...uhm... no thanks... I'm... I'm full... it... it was really good though..." I told him, kind of curious about what they were talking about with the worms. That sounded kind of scary or something. But I was glad that they were being really nice about my not being from their universe.

"No problem," said Njall. "All the more for us. I imagine you have nowhere to stay, if you aren't from Earth?"
Angfand frowned. "Really, Njall? You want us to take in every stray and weakling in Skatha."

"I haven't ever head of anything like that," I stated, frowning. "Sounds... different."

Things must have changed an awful lot in my time away. How the hell was this going to go? Buggin' Lady could have given me some details.

"This is interesting and all, but perhaps we should get moving. I don't want to be out in the snow longer than I have to."

Plus, the sooner we were out of the snow the sooner my wings would dry out.

"Me too, believe me," I said. "Thing is, I have no idea where we are. I'm also looking for a friend who's out here somewhere..."

Who I was also getting really worried about...

"Well, if they are out there, let's hope they have the same ability you do," I muttered, considering for a moment. "I would help look, but I'm...not that much help at the moment." No way was I using the word useless. "Perhaps just continue the way we were going? Something has to appear eventually, right?"

Unless we were in the wilderness no where near a town. In which case, we were screwed. Lovely thought.

"He is like me, yeah," I said. "So at least there's that... And I guess continuing is the only thing we can do. I just hope we're not in the middle of nowhere..."

That would suck. At any rate, I kept walking.

When she began walking I sat myself down on her hand, grateful for the change. Attempting to move through the snow hadn't been a piece of cake, considering each flake was the size of one of my hands. I began to focus on attempting to move my wings, thinking maybe even a bit of movement would help get the bit of show caked off of them, which in turn would help dry them out.

"Where are we, anyways?"

"I wish I knew," I said. "I just came in here from another world. It's another of my abilities."

Should I really have been saying that? ...Oh hell, I was talking to a Fay in the middle of a blizzard. I didn't even care anymore.

"Another world," I echoed, completely confused.

I could have sworn that I hadn't even heard of another world existing from anyone I'd escorted from the stones. Sure, they'd talked of earth, but that was normal. It was where everyone came from.

This... this only got stranger. I should have stayed at home. Why the Lady did I think this was a good idea?

"Sounds like an... interesting ability."

"Yeah, it...kind of is." I gave a short laugh. "I'm even weird by the standards of others who have abilities like mine. I can actually do things I shouldn't be able to do."

"Well, that's... " I paused, frowning as I searched for a good word. "Perhaps that's a good thing? Being normal can be overrated."

I snorted, thinking of myself. A fay who dreamed of returning to the human world. Not exactly normal.

Well, I wasn't dreaming anymore. The snow proved that.

"Oh, it's both," I said. "Good because it gives me a huge advantage in fighting, but bad because it means our enemies are looking out for me."

"Wouldn't it be nice to have them looking for you, though?" I asked, considering the idea. "After all, then it means that surely they'll be slightly... I don't know..."I paused, searching for the word I wanted. "Wary?"

"Eh, they don't really work like that..." I sighed. "They usually kill anyone they capture, but I don't even know--or want to know, really--what they'd do with me..."

I suppose death must be a common goal for enemies. I mean, the Starlighters had always eaten Fay when they used to catch them. Or at least, eaten most Fay.

"Ah, well, I can understand the not wanting to be unusual, then," I said, rubbing my hands together.

I couldn't help but feel like I should be cold. I mean, there was snow everywhere but yet I wasn't cold. It... was... strange.

"Yeah, it's...yeah..." I sighed again, looking around. "Hey...do you see that?"

I see it, Sorrel thought.

"Over there," I continued, "up on that...hill, I think? There's a light."

I surged to my feet, staring in the direction she'd indicated. I could just make out the light she was talking about. Excitement flooded through me as my wings fluttered just a little. Not enough to come even near to levitating, but enough to indicate to me that I was right that had gotten some of that ice on my wings.

"I see it," I said excitedly. "Let's hope that its a house," I paused, reconsidering. "And that the people are friendly."

"Yeah."

I hurried up the side of the hill as quickly as I could, trying not to fall too much. I mumbled some apologies to my companion and kept going. Finally, I made it up to the door; it turned out to be some kind of house after all. House or cabin or something, anyway. Taking a deep breath and hoping for the best, I knocked on the door.

Njall stood up. "More guests! Angfand, why don't you cook up some more stew?"
Angfand growled quietly and glared at T Mor briefly before standing up and heading into one of the store-rooms. Njall opened the door.
"Ah! Well met, strangers. Come in! We have mead and fire, and the snow can't follow you if you close the door quickly."

"Ah, thank you," I said, hurrying in and closing the door. I looked down at the Fay. "Well, here you go. Some place warm and dry, with food."

Angfand stared at the tiny person for a moment. "What are you?"
"Angfand!" said Njall. "That question could be considered rude."

"Thank-you," I told the girl, realizing then I didn't even know her name.

At that moment, though I caught wind of the one of the new big people speaking. Frowning I stared at him for a moment. The other guy was right, what had he called him... Angfand, his question had seemed quite rude. It was understandable, though, seeing as I was, what, twenty, thirty times smaller than them.

"A fay," I said shortly, glancing between everyone and trying not to appear too tense. "One who would love to get reasonably close to a fire or something to dry out her wings."
