"Aliens?" Her expression made it clear how ridiculous she thought that sounded. She wasn't even sure she believed in aliens, and if she did, why would they be invading New York? A hotel full of magical doors was one thing. But aliens?
Lois seemed perfectly serious though. Of all the lies she could have chosen, why would she pick that one? So maybe there was something to this whole alien business.
"I was in Seattle. No invasions. I had a wife. And a daughter." And she could live with the rest of it. She could live with being stuck here. But she didn't think she could live without them. "Now I have no wife and no daughter."
She was quiet for a second, holding herself together, but then she continued, hoping it wasn't completely obvious that she was barely succeeding.
"That kind of thing happens a lot? With the aliens?"
