Ray's face turned into a stiff smile. "Bracha, good to see you. Sadly, no, I will not be able to move to home base. Believe me, I wish I could." She finished tying off the last rope, and a few other figures slid down the taunt lines. Two men and a woman, all appearing to be around Ray's age. The man who touched down first, was fair skinned with a black quiff. The man appeared to wearing light makeup. He had a much tidier outfit than the rest of the crew, sporting a purple undershirt, raspberry purple vest, and dark plum purple tight fitting pants. There was a patch on his knee, but that seemed to be the only imperfection about his outfit. His dark brown eyes scanned a golden compass he held.
"Ray, are you sure this is right? The coordinates are correct, but this doesn't seem like the place you told us about."
"It's not the place it once was, but I wanted you to see it before it's gone." Ray replied.
Just then, another person dropped a few feet from a rope to his right. She was a woman, with lightly suntanned skin, and long blonde hair, nearly down to her hips. Her grey-blue-green swirling eyes glared at Amber for asking the question. She was wearing a high necked light blue tank top, under a pair of cutoff overalls, white frilly knee socks, and yellow buckled shoes. Her oil stained outfit was completed with a leather tool sash. She stood with her hands on her hips and spoke to Amber, "What an absolute absurd question! Time travelers? Pfft! We are the crew of the Crooked Paradox airship." She gestured to the ship above them.
"Beam, be nice. It was just a question." A timid voice said. The voice was from a shorter boy, with dark skin, and electric blue curly hair. He was dressed sloppily in a white and orange shirt that was stained with grease in the shoulders, and olive green capri pants that featured several patches. He also had a large wrench tucked into his waistband. He stood slightly behind the first man in purple, possibly for safety.
Ray looked back at Bracha, "right, so this is my gang," she pointed to the man in purple "that's Sheen," then at the woman "Beam," and finally at the shy boy "and Glint. I wanted to take them to see this place before it all goes down. I wanted to visit you guys as well." She paused for a moment, "how is the MB coping with the news of the shutdown?" She asked that more quietly than she had intended.
