Re: For Rain - set vaguely in Poly

Rain smiled sweetly at her. "You're in the City. Don't worry, lots of people don't know where they are when they get here."

She was on her way home from the Library and just enjoying being outside. Anytime she could be around nature and animals - well, or books, of course - she was pretty happy. And it was finally warm enough that her jeans and t-shirt were enough to keep her feeling comfortable instead of a little too chilly.

"I'm Rain. It's nice to meet you."

"I'm sorry," Rain said gently. "Lots of people aren't happy when they get here. I was pretty scared, but now I'm really happy here and I hope I never ever go home."

She giggled a little then and smiled up at Carol. "I'm usually the one who forgets to introduce herself, but this time I told you and you forgot to tell me back."

And then her eyes went wide. "Unless you don't want to tell me or don't have a name or can't say or something. So, if that's what it is, don't worry. I'll just call you Worried Lady. Or maybe... I don't know... Sparrow? Like the bird?"

"Okay," Rain said beaming. "I can call you Sparrow. Carol the Sparrow, I like that!"

She considered all the names carefully, trying to match them with people she knew. "I don't think so," she said finally. "But I don't know everyone here. And... if they were scary looking, I might have hid."

Scary women were okay, but scary men still made her want to run and hide.

"Not really?" Rain had to think about that one, too. "Well, the people who run the businesses and things, they're in charge of their businesses, but, well, if there are big people in charge..."

Her smile was a little shy this time. "I probably wouldn't know because I'm more like a mouse. I like to stay safe in my little places, like the Library where I work, and my little house way off in the woods. People are kind of scary, you know, and a lot of places don't have enough windows and doors to feel safe, so mostly I don't go in them."

Rain knew she was different, knew her mind didn't work quite right, but here no one seemed to mind so very much.

"You don't have to sleep on the streets here," Rain said reassuringly. "Even if you don't have any money or anything. You can just find an empty place and stay there for free for a while till you can make enough money."

Her eyes went towards the different apartment buildings and she shivered a little. "I didn't stay here, though. I felt safer in the woods. Most people like houses or things better, but not me."

Her little house in the woods might as well have been outside, it was just that open.

"I like the wind and the birds and the plants and the everythings. There's a river and flowers and lots and lots of trees."
