She slept late--well, that's half true. She woke when Caspian did, because he tripped over Lavender getting out of bed and knocked half the nightstand over.

It involved a minor fire (his pants), a slight burn to the fingers (hers), and entirely too much excitement before tea was had (for either), in Lucy's opinion. And no chocolate at all, thank you. Which isn't something that she's going to stop thinking about in the next few days, Lucy thinks, and is vaguely irritated by this.

But she's the blessing of not needing to rise so early as he, so she'd taken the chance to go back to bed, after fires were put out and burns tended to.

And she's not precisely grumpy, but Lucy finds she could use some peaceful moments after a morning starting like that, and so she's found herself a mug of tea and gone out to walk by the lake. Corella will likely be taken for a ride, later, but for the moment it's nice to stretch her legs.

The boat to Luca has a good headwind, but it can't move fast enough for Yuna; between the Goers and Dona and Lulu's volatile mood, it's tiring to keep up a happy face.

The leaves are changing here at Milliways, and when the wind ripples them it looks like dancing fire. It's a comparison she might not have thought of a few days ago, but now it makes her smile.

When she sees the other woman, she sketches a brief wave, her long trailing sleeve drifting along in its wake. "Lucy. Hello."

She laughs, and shrugs a bare shoulder. "Why does everyone keep saying that?"

"This is a lot of clothes for Besaid!" she protests, plucking at her long skirt.

"I'm fine," she says, with a sunny smile. "How are you?"

"Oh, it's tropical," she says brightly. "There's only two kinds of weather--hot and humid, or hot and rainy." Her voice is fond, for all of that.

"Mmm. I know what you mean."

"No, that would be wonderful," she says quickly.

"Just the islands," she says, shaking her head. There's a soft jingle of beads when she does. "Besaid and Kilika, and the others. It's already getting cooler, as we get closer to Luca, and the weather in Bevelle is a lot like this. Hot summers, and cold winters, and the trees change. I lived there until I was nine."

"What are London and Narnia like?" she asks.

"Bevelle? Oh--I don't know." She shrugs. "We were never exactly... comfortable, there, and the last three months I spent there were very lonely. Besaid is home," she says, finally. "It's where I found a family."

In exchange for a father.

She smiles back, easily and quickly. "Narnia sounds more like Spira. Bevelle is a little like London, I guess. It's big."

She pauses. "You mean to say there are only humans in your London?"

"I haven't seen so much of it," she admits. "But parts of it are. Dangerous, but beautiful."

"I don't know what most of those things are," she admits. "But Spira has Ronso, and Guado and Hypello. And Al Bhed, but they're really human, whatever people think."

"It's strange to think of a world without them. With only one type of people."

"Oh!" She covers her mouth with her hand. "How strange, and interesting."

"Al Bhed are human," she repeats, firmly. She turns her head when she says it, her hair slipping down over her right eye. "They just don't follow the teachings of Yevon, and they deal with forbidden machina."

"The Guado live the forests of Macalania. They're not very different from humans--they're shorter, and they have longer fingers, and funny hair colors. Patterns, on their skin."

"The Hypello are a little bit like frogs, and they live in the rivers and lakes. They raise shoopufs. And the Ronso--they're like cats," she says smiling. "They're very tall, and they have horns, in their foreheads." She touches her own. "My friend Kimhari is a Ronso."

Yuna laughs; Lucy is full of questions. "Yevon is the church," she says simply. "Yevon teaches us how to deal with Sin. And machina are complicated machines. They attract Sin, but that's not why they're forbidden. It's--wicked, to use them. It's why Sin was sent to punish Spira."

"And I don't know what a unicorn is," she says, finally. "Ronso are like lions, yes, but they walk like humans."

"Oh dear, horses, again?" Yuna giggles. "There aren't any horses in Spira, you know. But it seems like they're very important to everyone else's world."

From: [identity profile] night-hibiscus.livejournal.com
"I don't know," Yuna says politely. "It's strange to me to think about trees and streams having spirits."

"From what people have said about horses, it seems like we have chocobos to do most of the same things. They're big yellow birds with long legs."

"Really?" Intriguing!

"They're really very sweet creatures. We have them in our boat now, driving the paddlewheels." She smiles at Lucy's words. "I've only read about so much of it, really. But I'm looking forward to all the places I'll see on the pilgrimage."

"Is Narnia an otherworld from London, then? Or just a different place?"
