So I spent most of the night chatting with a couple of people from the welcome center. I learned that this world is basically a "what if..." version of where I'm from. I don't have to hide that I'm a mutant here, which is a great relief. Humans had a real stronghold on us back home. They say that they are fairly sure that there are a couple of kids from my world here, but I don't recognize the names. Doesn't surprise me, though. We probably had completely different walks of life.
Anyway, I'm Melody and I think that I'm going to be living in Providence. It's just a matter of getting settled in.
