Vector Warp Space v4 June 17, 2006

Posted by A - Your Story in Vector Warp Space.

Continuation by Loki:
“Are you alright, missy? What’s your name, by the way?” This Jeremy looked trustworthy enough to Sarah who thought about relying on him for the time being to learn about the world she stumbled in, lest she embarrass herself in public. Sarah was still a little shaken from the moving trees incident that happened earlier.
“Y-yeah, I’m fine. My name is Sarah.” She could feel the eyes of the wandering locals on her back as Jeremy led her to a more busy part of the environment with many gleaming towers of colored crystal, glass and metal–the entity known as the city.
“As you know by now, my name is Jeremy and we are going to the city before doing anything else here.” Sarah’s eyes lit up and fell at once at though of going in the beautiful and sprawling metropolis with it’s floating welcoming signs and omnipresent holographic adverts of foreign products she haven’t heard of.
“But we don’t have any money to start wi–” Jeremy winked at her and produced a bag that jingled its contents and opened it to show her.
“Who’d thought that we would be walking penniless?” Jeremy hooted with laughter at her sadness, making her feel for once in her life, happy. “and anyway, anything you have as coinage can be converted at the Ofeirryan City Center despite being a little… obsolete. The sight of the towers and monuments they walked under in the daylight made Sarah dizzy, but amazed at how they made the building without destroying the surrounding environment.
“First we’re going to convert the cash you have into our currency, then we’re going to the Great Library and then we’ll go shopping. Better start blending in earlier than later, I’d say. So, how did you find out about vector space travel, I thought they didn’t have that on Earth, yet?” Jeremy’s optimism and cheeriness went non-stop. Sarah was stung at the reminder of her Earth at this time of the day, making Jeremy a little alarmed.
“Oh, I’m so sorry! Forgive my rudeness. I shouldn’t have asked it so suddenly since you’re still recovering from the foreignness of the moving trees and everything…” Jeremy let his gentle and welcoming voice trail off, allowing Sarah to gather herself and thoughts, take a deep breath and begin with an explanation.
“No… It’s alright. I came from Earth using this disky-gadgety thing and I didn’t know what I was doing.” The smell of the foods cooking in the street by different vendors made her stomach grumble. Everybody else thought they were playing the role of the perfect young couple as they walked, even though they weren’t holding hands at all. A big building was looming ahead of them, blanketing everything in shadow; the building itself had spindly and spiny towers and turrets. The tall and pointy spike at the center of the group of three buildings as one held a spinning, sparkly thing with something that looked like a pair of cupped, silver hands.
“A disk, you say? We can do the currency and library now at one disjointed go, it’ll be better to save the best for last, anyway.” The building, Sarah realized, was placed at the center of the city itself, like a Seventh Wonder of the World. She walked in silence as Jeremy escorted her to the library, the heavy doors bidding them welcome to the shadows and knowledge within.
