Look Mom, Walking on Water isn't Hard.
Who: Mia OTA
Where: The Cove
When: Afternoon, March 21
What: Mia is listening to music standing on moving water. There's a sight to see.
Anyone who had known Mia for more than a few minutes knew there was something odd about her. A great reason why the idea of her standing twenty feet out over open ocean would cause nothing more than a bit of confused blinking. The guard who realized she was standing out there, watching the light play across the water, radioed in the mutant description and was told to leave her alone. There were few mutants afforded that kind of treatment when they were doing something that might look like escaping, but Mia was really just standing out there looking at the water. She had an urge to do things like that at times. One thing the establishment had long since realized was that Mia was certainly not making a break for it. She wouldn't know where to go wandering around on the flat plane of water.
The girl barely knew where she was on land. So he was told to keep an eye on her in case she should fall in but otherwise he was simply to let her be. So he took up a spot in the shade where he could see Mia standing out over the water looking in the general direction of the horizon, though if that was what she was looking at was up for debate.
The Ipod Brynn had given her was hung in its little bag at her chest, the earbuds in her ears. The same song had been playing over and over in her head for most of the day. Whether or not it had been there when Brynn gave her the Ipod, it was there now.
"Wastin' away again in Margaritaville," she sang to herself softly looking at the horizon with her big brown eyes. "Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt." Mia didn't know where Margaritaville was, what a porch swing was as she had never seen a porch, or that shaker of salt was that thing from the cafeteria that made little snow crystals. Even though she had no idea what these things were, she liked the sound of the man she'd never heard of before and continued to sing along.
