"Hey mom, we're ready to- oh! Hey Farah. We were about to head over to Night Market in Zona Quartz, think you guys wanna come?" Brooklyn said. All their on the girls were dressed in all black with different hints of color. Lux stood by the girls, smiling.
"Just let me get my bag and I'll be right back." Lux walk up stairs.
Farah's eyes widened. Lux was Brooklyn's mother? Fuck! She quickly looked away before glancing back slowly to address Brooklyn's question. "Ah, I'm not sure…" She glanced over at Ben and Saul. "I suppose it wouldn't hurt…"
"So, how was Hexa? Did you meet Emerisa?" Brooklyn said as the others started walking to the door. Lux cam back down with a holographic jacket, her hair now move into a braided ponytail showing the halves and under cut, and a tote bag with pride flags stitched on. Lux smiled, loving a good tease to a young woman. Baxtor never minded his partners being flirty, as long as they respect their poly rules he didn't really care.
The young mind fairy nodded. "Yes, I did," she answered, beginning to walk after them, but Saul gripped her wrist to stop her from following.
"Farah, where are you going?" he asked quietly. "You don't know what could be out there. We have to focus on finding Rosalind and getting back to the Otherworld."
Farah hesitated. "And… what if I want to stay here?"
Brookyln sighed. "I can tell you guys had a rough day. Why not take a break? Zona Quartz is a beautiful city and amazing people. You could rest up for the night if you want, but If you wanna come than do what you want. You're not hostages after all." She walked outside waiting for them to make there decision.
Farah pulled her wrist away from Saul. "I'm going. You can't stop me. I like it here. You and Ben can stay here." With that, she turned and followed the girls, letting her hair down from its strict updo as she went.
Outside was a sandy coast of purple sand lined up with a dark purple sea. Was this… lake Zona? The group walked to the edge of the island to a pair of sliding doors, no wall to be connected to. The manor itself looked to be 1000 years old, a tendered old home you would se in a horror movie. Brooklyn looked at Farah. "Listen, stay close to us. This pace will be a lot difrent." The sliding doors open up to a subway train, inside where…things. Floating eyes, hands, moons, and flowers as heads and holographic bodies, everything was in bright neon of pink purple and blue. As the five got on, the train started moving and flashing lights shimmered through the window.
Millie escorted Saul and Ben in there own rooms fitting they own aesthetics and advised them to rest.
Farah's eyes were huge, taking in every detail. She also made sure to stick close to her group, heeding Brooklyn's warning and staying close to the rest of the girls. "Where are we going again?" Farah asked, her face lighting up with the different colors of the passing lights.
After a while they all got off at a night market, tents and booths were lined up with all sorts of things to sell. Thr group started walking to an allyway and climbed up a latter to a rooftop, which display a beautiful view of the market and the night sky. Though you could tell, the neon aesthetic control sky to be a mixture of purple and blue. Day and nigh was meaningless here
Farah's jaw dropped, and her eyes widened at the sight. She stayed close to Brooklyn and Isabella. "Wow… this is amazing! How does it look like that? Is it magic or pigments or…" She trailed off, pretending like she hadn't been overthinking the composition of a fantastical world.
Along the sky were eyes with feathered wings and ladders of flowers high in the air. Everything was so out of the ordinary. "That's just the city's natural glow, I've live hear for 42 years and it has never once bore me." Lux said with a smile. The group got snacks from their bags and started to relax.
"Oh Farah, what are your pronouns? I completely forgot to ask." Brook said, pulling a container of cookies out from their bag.
"I can't imagine why," Farah murmured, entranced with the sights of the sky and the city below it. "42 years… I can't imagine living in such a place for that long."
She finally tore her gaze away from the sky at Brooklyn's question. "She and her," Farah replied with a soft smile. "It's alright."
Brooklyn passed everyone a monster can. "I'm gonna head out to shop for shoes, I'm taking Tiara and Dimand with me." She said as she pats Diamonds head. Lux waved them off sat Farah down with them.
"Mind telling me how you got here without staring at my tits?" Lux chuckled. "Really though, i need to know so I can help."
Farah took the can and looked at it curiously for a moment. She opened it with a hiss and took a sip as Brooklyn and the other girls left. She waved goodbye to them as well and took another sip from her drink as Lux began to talk. She nearly spat the liquid back into the can. "E-Excuse me?" she stammered.
"I saw, but don't worry I don't mind. I wanted this to be the moment where you can ask questions." Lux said a she picked up her drink and cracked open, looking down at the hundreds of monster, holograms, and creatures that are here know as civilians shopping for…what would you call a thing that didn't exist. "I know this whole situation is scary and all, but know that I'll fill you in on anything I can." She gave a warm smile, attempting to add ease to the stress Farah has already faced today.
Farah inhaled slowly and nodded. "Right, yes, um… thank you. It's all quite strange. I'm still getting used to it. But everything I've seen so far is lovely and brilliant. I'm not sure if I want to leave, but I know that Saul will want me to. He's non-magic, so I'm not sure he understands me in that aspect." She took another sip and winced a bit. "Uh, is it supposed to taste like this?"
Lux took a giant drink from the can and snickered. "Yes, it is. You see the thing about my family, about the lake you fell in. We take in children and teens, anyone really, who has attempted…to end it all. My family has made it sort of a mission to love and care for people who had terrible lives where they're from. Most of my kids are teens from Earth who had terrible parents, lived terrible lives and they attempted to end it all. We took them in and showed them that life is so much more than that.”
Lux looks down from the building to see the girls shopping at a nearby booth, specifically Brooklyn. “You see Brooklyn? She had a terrible home life with an alcoholic mother, an absent dad, and was in a very abusive relationship with a boy she thought loved her but I was using her as a dumb prank for years. She attempted to drown herself because she couldn't take the pain of being with him anymore and she appeared on shore of my Island. I took her in and she's like a daughter to me. Every single person that has come into our home has had a terrible past so we help shape them into creating a better future. I don't know what's going on in your world and I understand that you and your friends want to go back. If that's what you want we will try.” Lux almost began tearing up her eyes and began wiping her eyes on her glasses “Sorry, so sorry. Sometimes I get emotional. Nova taught me that.”
(Reviving this rp because it was a lot of fun)
(Sorry! I've been hella busy and only responding to a few rps because of that. But I should be more regular again! Again, so sorry!)
"I see," Farah murmured. She wasn't sure what else to say in response to it all. So Lux isn't Brooklyn's biological mother… she's not a biological mother to any of them. It must be nice, I suppose.
She chuckled a bit. "I'm not sure that Nova and I are on very good terms, currently, but I'd like to study the magic she possesses. It's Saul and Ben, my companions, who would like to go back to the Otherworld. But I'm not entirely sure… I suppose I should, because who knows what Rosalind is doing without anyone there to stop her…"
Lux shrugged. "Take it from me, I've grown to not care." They took a large swig of the energy drink, it taste like if fairy dust and flower crowns gave you an energy high. Sweet, but you couldn't tell. "Again, don't really know about your situation, but it sounds like you have a shit ton on your plate and the Rosalind person is the cause of it. Maybe you need to get away, since when was the responsibility of saving the world your issue?" Lux crisscrossed her legs and stretched her arms in the air, reveling a massive scar across her armpit to her love handles. It was slightly covered up by a collection of tattoos, but still visible.
Farah sighed. She wasn't sure if Lux was trustworthy – she appeared to be, but after Aster Dell, Farah didn't know what to believe. "It was made my issue when I realized I could potentially have the power to destroy it," she whispered. The fairy looked in the opposite direction of the other woman and brought her knees a bit closer to her chest as a subconscious protective gesture. "You have no idea what I've done," she whispered shakily.
Lux gave off a soft smile, sympathetic like. He's heard a collection of past trauma, mistakes,…regrets. But this didn't surprise her, she's been doing this for years. Helping others the way she wish see was helped. She relaxed her body and posture to seem unthreatening, even if everything around Farah seems strange Lux at the vary least want her to feel safe around the family. "Is there anything you want to know? About Zona?" Lux took another sip of her drink, followed up by some water from a rainbow metallic bottle. "I know everything here is … a little strange… so the least I can do if give you information about where you are."
Farah's eyes widened with curiosity, and she seemed to relax a bit more herself. "Yes! Oh, please, tell me everything! I don't have any specific questions, I suppose. I'd just like to learn."
Lux chuckled, as if they saw child's eye light up at a new toy. "Where do I begin? Well Zona is a 3 million year old planet with 9 main continents; i only remember Zona Quartz, Hexa , The Dark Isles, Soxryi, Techno, Diaca, Cronda, each represented by the one of the 9 moons. Here is the heart of Zona, Zona Quartz, the first ever creatures to have ever formed. Overtime they moved to other parts of the planet and change an adapted based of the aesthetic of each place. I lived here before moving to the Dark Isles, where I met Baxtor. Here, the thing is everything exists and nothing exists." Lux goes on about the how creatures and how life works. By that time the kids came back came back with some shopping bags
"Hola mama,, we got some stuff." Tiara said as they climbed up the latter. They dropped a bag next to Farah. "Here." They sat next to Lux. The others sat by.
