Kaya had spent those few minutes staring idly out at the street. The tech in many ways was woefully below what she was familar with, but a high enough level that she wouldn't have to worry about cannibal bands roaming the wilderness. It was odd scene such an urban enviornment so empty. Pondering why kept her from thinking too much about the fact she was trapped here with everyone else.
As the food was set in front of her she could hear her stomach start to growl and she was reminded once again of how hungry she was. "This looks great, thank you." It wasn't too different from diner fare on other worlds, at least in looks. Taste could well be another matter.
"How many people are here? This place seems pretty empty."
"It's no problem, sugar." Isabel smiled. She tilted her head a little at the question. "I think Tony's the only one with a really accurate count but there's a hundred or so. Everybody is listed in the phone."
"So few." Kaya shook her head. Even the space station she'd called home as a girl had over a thousand permanent residents.
She dug into the burger and nodded. "Tastes like nerf meat." She mumbled, barely chewing and swallowing before taking another large bite. "Delicious."
"The population comes and goes. Some people get sent home, some die..." She shrugged. "We get along, though."
Isabel chuckled as Kaya ate. "If you need more just let me know. You eat like my boys."
"Sorry." Kaya forced herself to slow down and not inhale her food. "It's been a busy day, I didn't have a chance to eat for a while."
"Honey, you don't need to apologize." Isabel chuckled softly. "I take it as a compliment, believe me."
Kaya nodded as she continued eating, albeit at a slower pace than she had before. She wasn’t a barbarian, even if she'd hung out in a rough crowd the past several years.
"There are people here who look like me?" That surprised her. Then Isabel rattled off other names of people she'd never heard of who shared the same faces. "So it's like having a twin kind of?" This whole place was weird, she wasn't sure she'd wrap her head around it. She'd have to make sure Arbie knew and could tell the others apart from her.
"There's a person that looks like you. Lizy got sent home a while back. And yes, it's like having a twin. Or in some cases being part of triplets." She smiled. "We call it face twins."
Kaya nodded thoughtfully and returned to her shake. "I'll have to see if I can meet any of them." She hoped it wouldn't bring back painful memories of her twin, she still missed her sister.
"Pretty much everybody here is nice. Stay away from Loki, though. He's not so nice." She made a face. "Andres has his moments but don't get drunk around him."
"What does not so nice mean?" Kaya looked up, curious. "And this Anders guy, does he get handsy or something? I'm pretty good at fending off guys who think I'm an easy lay because I'm tipsy." usually with a good punch in the gut or kick in the balls.
"Loki is lovely if you are useful to him. If not he could either completely ignore you or decide it would be fun to play with you. He caused some serious damage messing with my mind a while back." She shuddered.
"As for Anders, he has these abilities. He can talk people into doing things they wouldn't do normally. "
"I see. So this Loki is like a Sith." Good to know. She'd definitely steer clear.
She smirked at the statement about this Anders person. "We'll see. I'm pretty good at resisting that sort of thing when I want to."
