Gender: Female

Species: Human sunflower.

Picture:
Image

Abilities: The ability to convert poison into breathable oxygen. She also radiates light from her hair and skin.

Disability's: Eden was a mute until she came to Here.

History: Eden's people are plant-humans. They are a species with a similar appearance to humans but are oddly enough plants not mammals. Her kind vary in appearance because of the large amount of flowers and you can never be entirely sure what cross will come out. Eden's parents for example were a rose and lily. Two of the worlds most prized and Favorited flowers. Yet for some reason Eden turned out... a sunflower. One of the more common and less extravagant flowers. Because of her parents beauty they were very rich so despite just being a common flower she got sent to all the best schools. Only problem was. She was mute. At first people though she was just shy. Until they realized she simply could not speak. Immediately people panicked. On her planet there had never been a mute. And doctors unable to figure out the dilemma simply dispelled her for stupid. Eden though understood everything. But because of her... stupidity as the doctors labeled it she was denied schooling and never learned to write or even read. Instead she spent her days with careless housemaids who scowled at the spoiled sun flower. And thinking she could not understand there words loudly boasted that a sunflower was even less then a marigold or a thistle. "At least they have character!" With nothing to do and no one to understand her Eden began to run away. She would find amazing places like large sulfur fields or even deep gas gorges filled with water or... what looked like water. Eden also began helping people and painting. Being trapped in her own mind unable to talk drove her mad. She wanted to do and say so much and being a sunflower she was just packed with joy and light she wanted to share. And because she could not share it verbally. She painted and helped others trying to spread her joy throughout everywhere. That is until now. Now she finds herself in the Here. And she thinks shes the first one to arrive...

Hobbies: Drawing, Painting, Smiling, Helping others.

Personality: Eden is the type of person who can get someone on there death bed to smile. Her warm likeable personality makes her easy to warm up too. And her glowy helpfulness is a great addition to a group of friends. Eden does not swing moods easily most of the time being a ball of pure and UN-altered joy, hope and energy. She radiates with a certain self confidence that can catch people of guard but sometimes her step up attitude can make people feel a little awkward. Despite all her bursting energy during serious moments she can calm right down and become an understanding sweet heart. She also calms down when painting because shes radiating her energy into the fibers of her art. Really the best way to describe Eden is really a human sunflower.

Likes: Books and Libraries despite her inability to read, Art, Color, Exploring, Smiles and laughter, Fun.

Dislikes: Pain, Sorrow, Depression, Jerks, Awkward moments, War, Pain, Being called a "salad", BUGS.

Back home: Eden's home planet is a gas planet. It's a place completely surrounded by smoggy thick clouds of poison and sulfur. On her planet though that's a really good thing. Like normal plants on earth her kind breath in poison sulfur ect and breath out oxygen. Her planet despite the smog gets a fair amount of light and down on the surface its mostly just dirt and strange dead grass. The people on her planet look very humanoid but the appearance may very. Sometimes people on her planet are born with green skin of all shades sometimes there born with blue or extremely pale. Often hair color consist of the color of the petal. And of course the skin has variations often rose's on her planet grow small thorns if there female large if there male. On her planet because there plants nutrients in the soil and water are the best thing and if they dont have water they may often shrivel and simply die. Her planet also has large bugs. The poison in the air allowed them to mutate and grow to ridiculously large sizes. Because of the bug population increase there is a large divide in the planet one side being well tamed and controlled the other wild and bug infested. It may also seem funny to note that on her planet there is a large amount of plants though nothing like earth plants more like wild hard to tame green vines or thorn's. Aside that her planet has nothing to special but its important to note that if two roses on her planet have a child the likely-hood of that child being a rose are 1 in million its always a random spin of the draw. And each humanoid plant has there own ability's and quirks so even from birth its easy to tell. Just like how Eden glows and bounces light off herself.

Other: On a side note Eden unlike most people on her planet has pale skin but when she blushes its a deep leafy green not red or pink :P her blood as well as the blood of all her people is like sap.

So begins...

Eden opened her eyes. The first thing her brain registered, was the feeling of laying on cold floor. She lay there for awhile thinking wondering what she was doing here... Where here was. She already knew it was not home... Because home did not feel like this... Slowly she sat up and looked around. She was in what appeared to be a long hallway about the size of a regular living room. The length of the hallway just seemed to keep going but with many turns. Eden stood. The roof of the hall was very high and the light seemed to just come from nowhere. It wasn't too bright sort of comfortably lit kinda dim as if it were evening well most of the room was like that except where Eden stood. The light there was strong and bright emanating off or from within the girl.

She stepped carefully and looked around at the paintings covering every wall. There were ones of every shape and size and of all different things. Eden blinked. Would most people freak out? Probably. But the calmness of this place made her stay still and quiet. Where was she? She was Here... Where Here was whenever here was... Eden's mind raced as she tried to recapture the last moments of her memory. She'd gone to bed... Was this a dream then? Maybe. She looked around herself before breaking into a run down the marble hall. Everywhere she went and every corner she turned. More halls more paintings. More halls, more painting, more halls, more paintings... She kept turning and running. If this was a dream why could she not wake up or make this go away. Why?

She kept turning until she turned down a dead end. Eden yelped and skid to a stop but to no avail she ran into the large painting of a moonlit sky hanging on the marble wall. Panic filled her. Nothing happened? She opened her eyed to see hers legs inside the painting... And on the other side... Somewhere. She backed up quickly. Two things had just slammed down into her consciousness. One she'd managed to yelp... That was a noise... A noise someone mute as her could not make. And two... She had gone through a painting into somewhere else but the painting remained un-damaged. The sun flower girl sat on the floor for a moment thinking. But somehow she found it hard to think in a place so quiet...

The last thing Snow remembered was being out in her typical cove of flowers, the little clearing surrounded by a thick wall of ivy that she called her 'secret clubhouse.' Few people knew about it. Father, Phillip, and a few of the children from the village were the chosen ones privileged enough to share her secret. It was the place she went to escape, where she could do anything and be anything she wanted unhindered by criticism and staring eyes. It seemed like no matter how long people knew about her, they still stared like they had never seen anything like her before: the faerie without the wings. It wasn't her fault. She hadn't asked to be born crippled, she just was by some cruel force of nature. But she tried not to think of all that as she awoke and came back to her senses.

Her first thought as she groggily propped herself up with one hand and rubbed her eyes with the other was, "Oh no, I fell asleep again. Father is going to be worried." It was something she did often. It was almost a weekly routine to spend all of her free day hidden away with the animals and plants before accidentally falling asleep. But as she blinked herself awake and took a look around her, she realized the forest was not where she was. Instead, she was in some sort of hallway; it was unlike the stone and wood cottages from her home world. This was very different, cold cut and forever long. It was awash in soft light, but it was certainly nothing like where she had fallen asleep. Was it some sort of hospital? Had Phillip come looking for her and thought something was wrong? But she would have woken up, since she was a light sleeper. So what was this?

She stood up and took a better look around the room, finally noticing the endless paintings that lined the walls. That made absolutely no sense. There were no art museums anywhere near her village, and the one in the city didn't look like this. And where were all the people? She slowly walked towards one section of the wall and stood on her tiptoes to look at one better. She blinked twice. The image was weird. It showed towering buildings the like she had never seen before, all awash in a thousand different colors of light and clustered together with not even a blade of grass in sight. It started to make her a little sick, so she turned away and kept moving down the hallway in hopes that she might find something useful to help her figure things out, her bright blue eyes moving from picture to picture as she went.

Finally she came across one that looked more familiar to her, a large, beautiful painting of a clear lake surrounded by thick berry bushes and dressed in clustering water lilies. In a way, it felt so...real. She timidly brought a hand to the surface and breathed in a sharp breath when it went through like through water. Was this some sort of joke? A dream? That's it, she was just having a very vivid dream. Curiosity took her over. She took a deep breath and put her foot through, then her arm then, as she began to put her face through this strange new doorway, something happened. A small brown rabbit hopped into the portrait, a rabbit that wasn't there before. Snow stopped in her tracks, frozen in fear and amazement at the fact that the picture had moved. But it was short-lived when the rabbit suddenly jumped forward and through the picture, almost hitting Snow in the face before disappearing into another picture. She yelped and jumped back. However, something else shocking happened. Instead of falling onto her butt on the floor, Snow fell up. Another gasp. She craned her head to see a pair of light blue wings, almost clear and seeming to be made out of air.

"Wings!" she cried out in shock. "How?" They were beating quickly and on their own, a pair of beautiful wings that Snow hadn't had before. Finally, she stepped back on the ground and sunk to her knees. She tried to become conscious of them, but it was so surreal. She was sure now, this had to be a dream. From the room, to the paintings, to the wings, it was one impossible surprise after another. But oh, she wished it was real! How easy her life would be if she had wings. Her mother would love her like her father, the other faeries and humans her age would want to be friends with her...she could be accepted and loved. They wouldn't just want to be around her when she sang and healed, or cooked her special cookies. If only they could see her like this...

But her dreams were short lived. Suddenly, she heard a scream from somewhere deep inside the reaches of the room. Scared, but curious at how there could be another person in her dream, Snow stood up and walked briskly towards the direction that the voice came from, both forgetful and scared of her wings. As she walked, she noticed that everything looked the same, but different. Halls gave way to other halls, but their walls were all filled with portraits of so many different things. It seemed like she wasn't making any progress at all. She took a deep breath before calling out as loud as she could, "Hello? Is anybody out there?"

Eden looked up from where she was sitting and blinked. She could swear she heard other footsteps. She got up and set off down the hall again. "H-Hello?" Her voice sounded strange to her ears. Like it wasn't meant for her. Yet there it was coming out of her mouth belonging to her. How and why she would never understand but...Wait was that a boy. "H-Hello???" Down the hallway from her was a young boy maybe 10. She moved closer to the boy carefully not entirely sure what to think. "Do you know whats going on here?" She moved closer a little faster light shimmering off of her skin and bright golden sunny hair. She stopped in front of the boy and looked at him intently.

Eden walked over to the boy. "Not really... All I know is well... the paintings don't seem to mind allowing and hand or foot to pass through them." She looked around a little before she looked back at the boy. "Umm... My name is Eden... May I know yours???" She felt so awkward talking to this young man but then again he seemed just as lost and confused as she was so maybe that truly meant they were in the same boat.

~ . ~

Jack was sitting in a quaint kitchen like room. He had been in Here longer then he cared to guess or imagine and so he had grown accustomed to the various places and paintings. He knew this place like the back of his hand and so he had found the paintings that resembled more down to earth things like a kitchen. Despite the fact that in the Here one did not need food. Jack did enjoy a cup of tea from time to time. And tea could only be found by going through the right picture into the right kitchen. The picture itself was not very fancy it was but of a simple little kitchen with a counter and in the cupboards there were things that never ran out or never became bad. It was in this kitchen he found his fancy of earl gray tea. He sipped his tea and looked out the window at the seemingly painted scenery of a little garden with bright pink and white flowers. He smiled to himself closed his eyes and sipped his tea. Then a scream shattered into his silent world. His eyes went wide and the urge to vomit came over him. He shoved the though aside stood up and ran out of the painting. Running from a painting back into here was sometimes still shoking the change in lighting temperature and feel just... Sent chills.

Just down the hall from him was a girl. A girl... A person. Was Here playing its little games again. He looked at the fear and terror in her face and moved to her as calm and cool as ever. He leaned down (He's quite tall) until he was eye level with the girl and smiled. "Calm down... Or you will scare Phillip and George... there the seagulls in the painting." He smiled and kept calming talking about the painting until the girl was calm then he stood again. "My name is Jack and you must be new to all this... Would you like help adjusting to walking again? Normally Here takes care of the pain but if there's allot of new people it could be lagging... So just calm down and soon the pain will end before long you will be walking like it were no problem."

Kree jumped, putting her hands over her mouth in order to muffle the scream that fought to surface. This person, Jack, seemed to know a lot about Here. Taking a few short breaths until she no longer felt the need to scream, she looked up at him. "My name is Kree." Her words were no louder than a whisper, but her gaze never moved from his face. It was so strange for her to find someone else. She'd never guessed other people were Here as well. It made sense. Kree sucked in another huge breath before speaking. "Where exactly is Here? Why am I here?" Many more questions filled her head, but they left just as fast as they'd come.

The pain in her legs was subsiding, but she could still feel it in her knees. "Thank you. I feel much better now. Could you maybe show me around?" She asked, feeling well enough to walk for a while.

~.~.~.~

"My name is Elian." He responded, looking around. "I marked where I came in with the chalk," He mumbled, pulling the small piece of chalk from his pocket. "Every now and then I draw a little on the walls, mark where I've been." He ran his finders over the surface of the object, leaving them dusty and covered with its residue. Holding the chalk made him remember his past, what few nice memories he could muster, and he gave a toothy grin. He felt so out of place here. Where ever Here was. A thought crossed his mind briefly. Here is everywhere and no where. It is all and is nothing. Here is here. Elian's smile faded, but he let a curious look take its place as he looked up at a painting overhead. It looked to be the same painting from the room he'd entered Here from; a lone willow tree in a field of swaying grass. He felt connected to it somehow, but he couldn't place how or why.

Jack smiled. "Kree? Lovely name for a young lady." He got her steady and helped her walk down the hall aways. "Kree this place is called Here. Allong time ago I woke up here and well... Ive been here ever sense... Watching people come and go... But no one has shown up in awhile until today." He brought her along the hall. "There's probably others... But who knows where they are... You think we should go take a look???" He looked around the marble walls and halls ahead of him. This place he called home. It was beautiful but in a way not many people saw. The downside was the lonely-ness. Not many people came here and they always left after a time until he was left alone. Realizing he was distracted he turned his attention back to the girl. "So what species are you???"

~ . ~

Eden blinked at Elian, the boy was not like her. He wasn't... A plant. She was not sure what really gave it off maybe it was the fact he simply felt... Different. "What... What kind of flower are you?" She backed up a little. She wasn't one to judge quickly but under the circumstance and the fact that on her planet everyone was a flower... But this boy he was not a plant and he wasn't well he just wasn't a flower. She did not know what else there was. She scrunched her eye brows. If he wasn't a flower... What could he be? Were there things out there they never told her about? The though made her mind race. Realizing the boy wasn't paying attention she followed his gaze to a painting. It looked like long grass and a tree. A very strange tree. On her planet they had trees similar to that but the leaves were darker and pink flowers would grow wildly. But the painting was in fact very beautiful. She blinked back at the boy. "Hey Elian? If you like the picture so much... Why not just go inside?"

Kree was surprised still at her ability to walk. It had been so long since she'd felt anything beneath her feet, or anything at all in her feet for that matter. "It sounds so sad, to be here alone." She said, looking up at Jack. He seemed friendly enough, but she was still unsure. Something about Here felt odd, unnatural. She realized he'd asked another question while she'd been lost in thought. "Oh, sure, let's go!" The thought of more people shocked her, but still, she was happy to be with other people instead of by herself, even if they were strangers. She took a few steps on her own, thankful Jack had helped her walk the distance. She was starting to get used to walking; the pain in her legs had faded to a dull, inconsistent throb, slowly disappearing altogether. She returned her gaze from her legs to Jack. "I'm human, what else is there?" She'd never thought of any other species, other than animals perhaps. On Earth, she was just one of many, insignificant but necessary, in Here, she felt important, not necessary but needed.

~.~.~

Elian tilted his head slightly to the left, still staring dreamily at the painting. At the sound of her voice, he glanced at Eden. "I'm no flower silly. I'm a . . . a . . ." He tried to think of the word his parents had used, "Humanoid." That wasn't it, but it rolled off of his tongue with great ease. "I'm part robot." Elian finally decided, though he wasn't sure where the word had truly come from. He was positive it wasn't his own. He returned to the picture, studying it slightly. "Will you come with me?" He was still a child, frightened in an unfamiliar place. He found comfort in Eden's presence, as if she were a security blanket. It was as nice to have her around as it was to see. Something about her made things seem easier, possible. "Eden, where do you come from?" His voice seemed small, but he looked at her with a curious eye, knowing she was not like him.

Jack raised an eye brow. "There are many other things... I for instance am not human... But there will be time for that another time." He walked along until they reached a part where the hall grew into a large round room with many other halls. He paused here and turned to Kree. "Everyone should find this spot sooner or later... I think..." He smiled nervously. "So would you prefer waiting or shall we go hunting for our guests?"

~ . ~

Eden blinked. "Ro-bot?" What was a robot? At his question she frowned. "I'm from my home... We call in Aspirality... It's super green and stuff there and all the people are flowers." She beamed light beaming off her skin her hair her eyes. Like she was a human sun burst. "I'm a sunflower... My parents were a Lily and a Rose." She tilted her head. "But you say your a... R-O-BOT... What is a Robot where are they from??? Are they all like you???" She stared at the Elian fascinated and spun around the boy. "You look like me... But your no flower..." She moved closer and poked him before dodging away. "Woahhhh Your skin feels weirddddd~" Wide eyed she moved closer again and poked him once more.

Kree was amazed. It reminded her of the fairy tales her parents had told her growing up of werewolves and vampires. The thought made her question their existence. Were they real? She examined Jack. He looked human, acted human, talked human. How was she to know the difference? "We can seek them out if you'd like." She gave a sweet smile and brushed a loose strand of hair behind her ear. She wondered who else might be located in Here and with a yawn, began walking.

~.~.~

Elian giggled when Eden poked him, and again the second time. He was extremely ticklish. "Robots are machines," he started, "we carry out just about every function there is, from flying spaceships to washing your clothes." He smiled, "I have no memory of my planet to describe it to you. I just know it was always very hot. I spent most days inside. I've never seen my planet," He sighed, slightly sad, but perked up as he continued to speak. "My mother worked as an engine repairer, my father ran a car wash. They didn't pay much attention to me. They were always busy, I don't know." He tilted his head to the side again, giving her an odd look before squinting. Finally, he looked away. "You're so bright!" He laughed, looking back at her and shielding his eyes from her light.

Truly, he'd been unaware of his skin. It was morphed over metal, oil flowing between the two much like blood, but keeping his joints from going stiff more so than keeping him alive. The layer of skin was somewhat thin, although it was thick enough to resemble flesh and have a slightly fleshy feel to it before touching metal. It was rather surprising that he even look human, though most people from his planet are born fully human and slowly adapt into the environment. He knew he was, as was his mother, but his father was built using the genes of a deceased member of society. At this stage in his life, he had already gone through the surgery of having all of the metal replace most of his bones, leaving only his legs and skull bone and blood. All primary organs still remained, still functioned, but were less necessary to sustain life. It was more of a decoration now.

"Where should we go now, Eden?" Elian asked, looking around. He was beginning to grow bored of standing.

Jack nodded and lead the way. He weaved through hallways easily making sure Kree kept up. "Yes I look rather human don't I... But I am not... he looked at the girl his red orange eyes locking onto hers. "I was expecting the eyes to give away my non-humanity. But I would rather not talk about what I am exactly..." He looked away. Jack never spoke of his past to anyone... He did not talk about himself much at all people had to work to figure out who he was and what he liked... He jsut did not like giving things like that away so easily.

~ . ~

Eden poked and prodded Elian more. "That sounds pretty cool... Wish I could visit but I don't do well under too much heat I wither... and sorry about the glowing... I reflect light the happier I am the brighter I am neeto hun?" She felt a pang of sadness when he mentioned never seeing his own planet. "So... You were blind hun?" She smiled. "I could not speak... People on my planet said I was just stupid..." Her face flicked to sadness but soon a smile flashed on her face. "Why don't we see if we can't find any others." She had no shoes on and wiggled her toes on the cold marble floor. "Soooo lets goooo~" She ran down the hall giving time for Elian to keep up. She led the robot bow down hall after hall nothing certain pictures for backtracking reference. She kept running until she ran to a dead stop in front of picture.

Kree nodded, "Oh yes, I understand." She let her eyes wander about the hallway, taking in the pictures all at once and also breaking eye contact with Jack. She was in awe by the pureness of Here. It was nice to find something so untouched by the hustle and bustle of her everyday life. Kree smiled, happy to be away from that. She was happy to walk. Mostly, she was happy to for once, be happy. Her family still mourned for the death of her eldest brother, though it had been five years prior to now, and blamed her for the accident. "How long have you been here, Jack?" She looked at him, her green eyes reflected the dim light and seemed to have a small twinkle in them. She kept walking at the pace he'd set, finally comfortable with walking. Her fingers trailed lazily over the smooth surface of the wall, bobbing and weaving over the smaller paintings that hung at her level. Every now and again, they would dance their way into a painting and hang there for a moment before resurfacing and continuing its path along the wall.

~.~.~

"I remember the sand very clearly," Elian whispered, almost quiet enough to have been talking to himself. "on the few occasions Mother and Father allowed me to escape the confines of my room and play outside, I could feel sand everywhere. It stung my skin and made me itchy. I didn't go outside much." His shaggy brown hair fell into his face and he shook it out, giggling as she continued to poke him. "You are pretty neeto. I'm glad you can speak now. I would be so horribly lonely if you couldn't." He smiled at her and when she began to run, he sprinted to catch up with her, but slowed to a fast jog and stayed slightly behind her. He enjoyed the freedom of running, being able to see everything as he passed was so exciting. Elian was euphoric about being in Here. Everything was so wonderful. He couldn't place it, but there was something about his surroundings that made him unusually happy. Elian hadn't noticed Eden had stopped and kept running but when he finally did realize it, tried to stop and ran into her back before collapsing on the ground. "Ow." He groaned, rubbing his head. "That kind of hurt." Though he claimed of being injured, he still showed a look of happiness.

Jack blinked. "I've been here long enough too see 5 groups come an go..." He frowned a little. "I... I don't know why I stayed here or why but I did... I don't ever feel tired or pain or hunger... But I can get injured and sleep and eat... It's strange really." He moved along the path. "It seems that when people find there way Here there always... Broken in a way missing a part of themselves... They stay for 30 days and then leave... By what I can tell I'm the only one who's stayed longer then the normal welcome. And I don't think I could leave... Because I'm not sure there's anything too return too." The though saddened him yet he was content staying in the Here it was a peaceful place.

~ . ~

Eden frowned. "Oh sorry." She helped the robot up. After dusting him off she looked around. "Elian... Whats that?" She pointed to a small square image in the middle of the wall and blinked. The painting hung on the wall it was a dark blue sky with sparkling bright stars. But there were other stars among them that looked burst in the sky with pink and blue and green. There was also a strange city like place full of lights and a large wheel with chairs. "It looks so weird... But really pretty... What is it???" She squinted at the picture and huffed. ((Woot amusement park))

A young man sat on the ledge atop a massive skyscraper made of brass gears and gyros, the air filled with the ticking of hundred of clocks in unison. There was nothing but massive clock towers for miles and miles, all varying in detail and height but sharing the same rhythm like the heartbeat of passing time as the the bright orange sun set slowly behind them. Despite the awe the view might bring to some there was an air of sadness to it as well as the empty city of time had no citizens aside from the boy in black and the further one looked to the horizon, they more run down and ragged the towers started to look. Even here there was obvious patches of rust staining the shining metal, looking like scratches and wounds on the skin of the old buildings. Still, it was peaceful and peace was all Nathan could ask for in the senseless world he'd found himself in.

He closed his eyes and sighed as the sound bore into his mind. It had done it's job of clearing his mind but now he was left with the cold, harsh reality that he still didn't understand this place nor the place that had led him here. It was all a mystery and one that had been unsolved for the last seven days. This strange paradox of a place, Here, screamed of dreamers and idealists, a place where the blind could see, the deaf could hear and the mute could speak. A place where the dying could live. Yet Nathan knew it couldn't last despite nor was he sure whether or not he wanted it to. He mind wandered as he pushed himself up, taking a careful step away from the ledge before turning and making his way back. He weaved through the innards of the clockwork mechanics as he jumped between slow moving pistons and avoided whirling gears until he found the heart of the machine and there, pinned up on a stationary column, was a painting of a long white hallway with dozens of other works of art hanging from the walls. Without hesitating, he walked towards the painting and slide through it as thought it was nothing more than a window.

In the blink of an eye the world changed as the painting became the new reality while the old turned to paper and paint yet again. As he straightened himself up and brushed off dust from his long black coat, a feeling on the back of Nathan's neck began to tingle as he realized the hallway was not empty. Two others stood just next to him, gazing at another picture just three frames away. This would have worried the overly cautious Nathan on his first or second day here but he had quickly learned that the only dangers that existed were the ones that you were willing to let assist. Still, he avoided the other citizens of Here the best he could though he did his best to not come off as rude. He didn't have any problems with the people that found themselves here as well. In fact some of them fascinated him. He was simply not very good with interacting with people, especially some of the odd... things that he'd seen. He tried to quietly turn and walk away from the two without a single word.

Eden heard a noise behind them and turned around to see a boy. "Hello Mister." She smiled happy to see another face. She blinked upon realizing he had come from a painting. "Are you from around here?" She blinked and tilted her head to the side strands of her hair fell down her shoulder and back and glowed with soft golden light. She could tell that the man was not the most social by his attitude already but Eden was determined she could make anyone warm up a little.

Nathan tensed up when a voice rang out behind him, obviously the words being directed towards him. 'So much for subtlety,' he thought as he turned on the spot to face the person who had called him out. He could tell that this girl was the polar opposite of himself just from looking at her. She was small and cutesy with colorful, impractical clothes, a big happy grin on her face as if she was having the time of her life and her bright hair and clean skin looked like they were literally lighting up the room. Nathan on the other hand was tall and shabby wearing a dusty and heavily patched black trench coat with matching shirt, pants and combat boots. His hair was dark and messy with small patches of dried much covering him skin in irregular patterns and even though most of his face was obscured by the heavy and worn gas mask on his face, his blue grey eyes didn't have a fraction of mirth in them.

"I don't think anyone is from Here," he answered as he brushed off a bit more dust from his coat, causing a coat of dust to fly off and float to the ground. His eyes squinted as he took a step closer to the girl and leaned in, looking her square in the eye for a brief second. "Yeah, there's no doubt about it. You're a First," he said as he leaned back again, placing a hand on the side of his head as he closed his eyes and sighed. "Great. Newbies and that red headed guy isn't around to give explanations." He half opened his right eye and stared down at the bright girl. "Suppose someone has to do it then." He opened his other eye as he dug his hands deep into his coat's pockets. "You got a name, kid?"

Eden blinked and watched the guy observe her. She shuffled awkwardly in her place and swallowed until he leaned away then she smiled. "My name is Eden Nathenniel Green... Ima sunflower~" She spun and stopped perfectly. A mysterious smile covered her face this time. "And you... Your someone who's life has been filled with much hardship and nothing much to smile about... The look in your eyes gives it away... You got the look of a boy who gave up his childhood cause he had to be a man... Only to have fate find its way of stabbing you in the back..." She blinked at the dark haired boy right in the eyes. "Anydoodle... May I know your name?"

While she awaited her reply she allowed her eyes to dart around there vicinity observing the various paintings. Until her eyes met with one... It was the picture of a bug... a red bug with black dots on its back... The painting was a closeup and the bug was on a leaf. Eden paled and the light reflecting off her dimmed a little as if trying to protect itself. Eden feared bugs more then anything in the world. On her planet they were the size of houses and ate up the world and people. Eden had once or twice run into a bug... She tore her eyes away from the picture and soon as she did her healthy glow returned.

This girl was.... odd to say the least. As Nathan had expected, she was ungodly optimistic as she went as far as to spin in place when she introduced herself. Not to mention the fact she stated she was a sunflower. And then something even more bizarre happened. Instead of asking who he was, she told him with an odd little smile on her face. The entire ordeal was creepy and somewhat annoying as if her eyes were able to read him like an open book. This bugged Nathan more so than most people because of how easily she saw through him. He wanted to convince himself it was just a lucky guess but there was no way she could have said all of that without knowing something. Here gathered people from all around, most of them not human. Maybe this bizarre plant girl was psychic or something. But if that was the case she wouldn't have bothered asking for his name.

"Nathan," he said in a flat, filtered tone as he pulled a hand out of his pocket to mess with one of the knobs on his mask, his expression not changing despite her apparent efforts to faze him. "Good to meet you. Now then, I assume that you-" He cut himself off mid sentence as he noticed the girl's expression. She looked panicked and paled as her eye caught one of the paintings off to the side. He followed where her eyes led to and was instantly confused. He looked to the two neighboring pictures, assuming he was simply looking in the wrong place but there was nothing but innocent scenery. His eyes fell back onto the painting of the lady bug as he began to realize that this girl may be the most annoying thing he ever met. Of course if she really was a plant, it made partial sense that bugs might be frightening. Maybe they were bigger where she came from. Nathan sighed as he closed his eyes again and let his hand fall to his side. "This is going to be interesting..." he mumbled to himself as he turned on the spot. "Come on. I know a place that might help you keep your mind on track while I try to explain things to you," he said as he turned on the spot and began walking slowly down the hall, not bothering to check if she was following.

Eden blinked and watched Nathan walk for awhile. He was certainly an interesting character... Definitely nothing like herself but she did not mind. She turned to her earlier companion Elian and grabbed picked him up before running to catch up with Nathan. Once she was caught up she set Elian down so he could walk along with the two of them. (( Eden... The only person who would nonchalantly pick someone up like a sack of flour. )) "So Mr.Nathan... Where are you from?" She asked curiously looking around the hallways as they passed various portraits. Each one was beautiful in its own way... Except the one earlier with that... BUG! She shuddered at the thought and frowned before continuing on her train of thought. To be honest Eden was kinda bothered by negative people. Not because they brought her down but simply because they themselves were down and sad. Nathan seemed like a wall of thought but not really negative... Perhaps he was simply more down to earth then she was. It was possible...

Daniel walked slowly trying to observer as much as he could from his surroundings. He had to jot this information down so he would remember and could perhaps help the new people that came here with it. "Hey you guys I feel a bit tired I think somethings wrong with me. I'll just lay down in one of the paintings, you guys go on ahead. " Daniel then went into a painting depicting a clearing with only trees and grass swaying. He laid down and tried to gather his thoughts
1. He came into a world or hub, more like awakened here.
2. In here you are able to go through paintings depicting a piece of land and time.
3. I have no idea how long the stay here is or even if there is a limit.
4. It seems people here have a different physiology.
5. People don't seem to like me talking, so I'll stick to writing on paper to limit the rambling I do, it will be much more time effecient.
6. No one seems to know what is happening here.
Daniel got his most important notes into that list. "Finally some peace and quiet no one to bother me, or threaten to kill me. I might actually enjoy this place, it seems nice and peaceful. No worrying about anything. " Daniel got up and expected there to be a fridge next to him. " Crap, I think I won't ever fully enjoy this place. " Daniel laid on the ground not worrying about anything just looking up thinking about what to next. "There's nothing to do now, besides wait for someone to pass by. Heck I might even get to try my experiment. " Daniel laughed, who was he kidding he was no scientist he didn't know how to build a energy generating machine. "It would be really wonderful if someone who knew about machinery appeared here. " Daniel decided not to worry about anything and just lay down and relax, he's had enough action for one day, if time even meant anything here. Daniel quickly returned to the group.

Nathan looked over his shoulder at the bright haired girl and her companion with another dull look of annoyance in his steely blue eyes. "Don't call me mister," he said plainly before turning his head to face forward, giving no explanation to the sudden rule he was nailing down. He began messing with his gas mask again as he decided to answer her question after a few second of complete silence. "Doubt you would have ever heard of it even if you were human. A village called Kurn in... the countryside." He paused partway into his sentence as he quickly remembered that she wouldn't know the name of an Earth country. Or the remains of one at this point. " His fingers stopped fiddling with his mask and hug loosely by his sides, swinging in rhythm with his footsteps. "It's small, dirty, lifeless besides the people in it. If you want to call what the people are doing 'living'." He turned his head slightly as he directed his words towards the girl again. "You wouldn't like it," he stated quietly in a tone that bordered apologetic, a glint of... something in his eye for a split second that died just as fast as it appeared.

It was only a few more steps down the hall before Nathan stopped dead in his tracks and turned to face another piece on the wall: a plain wooden frame holding an oil painting of a section of door with a sloppily added knob. "While you're here, you might as get use to getting between places," he said, tilting his head towards her as he reached out towards the painting. Unsurprisingly the canvas gave no resistance as his fingers slipped into the world of the picture and gripping the door handle and giving it a sharp turn before he slammed his shoulder into the wooden frame. While the brittle looking wood stayed intact, the entire section of wall surrounding the painting broke away and swung open as if on some invisible hinge to reveal another hall full of pictures, identical to the one they were in aside from the pieces on the walls themselves. Nathan stepped back, tugging his arm before he waved the two in. "Come on. This door closes itself and I'm not sure if it cares if people are passing or not."

Eden followed Nathan along the hallway and listened to the description of his home. "Your right... I would not like your home... Because I would die you silly goose." She giggled. "My home is covered in thick poisonous gas that people like me breath in... then we breath out oxygen... It looks really foggy where I live but its nice a warm but not too warm just right for plants... We have lots of vines and water... And... bugs..." She shuddered. "Bugs where I live are like the size of houses... they can eat people hole... Ive seen it happen... its not very pretty..." She frowned then turned to happier thoughts. "We have sulfur fields where I come from also... It's really nice but... I'm not sure if you would be able to breath in our air... That's kind of a shame..." Eden smiled at Nathan. "Oh well maybe someday people will find away to visit each other even if there really far away."

Eden looked around and ran right into Nathan when he stopped suddenly. She caught herself and stepped back then watched as he opened a painting up. "THAT'S SO COOL!" Her eyes sparkled in amazement as Nathan waved them in. "OK~" She skipped and jumped right into the painting without even a moment of hesitation. On the other side Eden frowned. It was just another hallway. That was pretty boring. She looked around this hallway. The marble here seemed a little bit different color but it was the same filled with paintings and turns like one big maze. In front of Eden there was a very odd picture. It was painted of an underwater point of view but the fish... Were odd they looked like they were made of jelly but they were clear and a faint color of blue they had tentacles like squids. (Jellyfishhhhhh~)

Eden walked over to the painting placed her hand on the wall next to it and pushed her head into the small square painting. The painted let her in right away and on the other side Eden found her head poking out of the sand underwater. Above her the strange fish jelly things swam and light so perfectly passed through the water and danced around her. She smiled to herself and for a moment panicked until she realized shed been breathing the whole time without drowning on water. Yet she could feel the water all around her pulling at her hair and soaking her clothes. Smiling she pushed her hands into the painting and pulled herself into the blue ocean her hips barely made it through though... Maybe she should have done what Nathan had done but hey she'd found a way to fit. Soon she was walking along the ocean floor she felt heavy with her clothes drenched and being underwater but she liked it. I wonder... if anyone could see me on the other side? If they were looking at this painting would I be here... or nowhere? The whimsical thought made her smile gently as she looked up at the ocean watching the jelly like fish float upward. They were like the oceans birds. Eden's golden hair was getting pushed around by the ocean it was almost like she was falling or floating but she felt her feet buried in the watery sand.

#, as written by Adantas
Marpe was busy ignoring the two men behind her that she almost didn't hear the voices again. She just heard faint echoes and not halting her step, followed with single minded determindness to find these other people. The quicker she did so hopefully the quicker she could go home. Twisting through corridor after corridor, oblivious to all the different pictures on the way, only one goal on mind. The voices where getting louder and from what she could hear they sounded young.

Trelore on the other hand wasn't struggling to catch up but he was still a few steps behind, his own ears picking up the voices and his interesting sparking. Then as he followed Marpe around one more corridor he found her halted. He looked around her shoulder to find a some people stepping into one of the pictures. Marpe was already walking over to the picture that they just disappeared into, it was a large expanse of glistening water filled with an array of different colour fish. Trelore stepped beside Marpe to look up into the scene. They said nothing for a moment, both rather intrigued. Then Marpe snapped out of it and began making her way into the picture.

"Wait!" Trelore exclaimed, not wanting to be left behind. He turned to Daniel. "Come on then!" He said, an encouraging smile accompanied with an extended hand for the boy to take.

Marpe eased into the water, somewhat unsure but once finding that she didn't require breath pushed her whole body through. It was a bit of a challenge but she finally managed it. It was incredible. Never had she imagined being under the water. There were multicoloured fish that she had never dreamt of before. It had amazed her so much that she was too awestruck to call out to the people they were following. Trelore while equally amazed was able to spot the two and call out to them, although it came out as a warble and nearly unrecognisable sound. But it was a sound none-the-less.

"Hey!" He called out, waving his hand.

In the silence of the underwater world Eden heard someone. Turning her head slowly her eyes fell on two new comers. One was... Well she looked like a sky scraper compared to herself and the other one did as well. She smiled and the smile turned into a grin. "HELLO~" She waved happily and began to walk over to the strange man who had said Hey. It was weird walking underwater... Sorta like walking in a place with lots of gravity and none at the same time. But somehow she managed to make her way to the new comers her golden hair floating around her long and slightly annoying as it tickled her skin. "hia my name is Eden~ Whats yours???" The words were difficult to understand probably with the amount of bubbles escaping her mouth but she hoped the person would understand.

Daniel jumped through " Just like scuba diving. " Daniel jumped in to quickly to hold his breath and was worried he would drown, but found that he didn't have to worry nothing was happening. He waved to the girl over there wearing a calm smile. He then signed " Hello, how are you? My name is Daniel. " Remembering he could talk he repeated what he said. " I'm sorry I forgot I could speak here, I used to be mute. Well anyways, hello Eden I'm Daniel. " Daniel swam around careful not to damage the jellyfish or get stung by them. " Be careful in my world these jellyfish can sting and might paralyze you, although I'm not sure if those rules apply here. " Daniel grabbed his newest journal remembering he left the important ones by the painting of a field. The ink from his notebook floated up in a black blob. He then began chasing a fish. " You guys do know how to swim right? " Daniel didn't really care that his newest journal was ruined, it didn't have anything important in it. Just to be safe he left the map in his pocket.
"Do any of you guys know how this place works? " Daniel wondered if he could make a painting and hang it, he decided he would test that later.

Nathan listened to the girl's explanation of her home world, his visible expression not changing as she talked about the giant bugs and the sulfur fields. It was all amazing to hear and had thus far been the most outlandish thing he'd heard since arriving in Here. He looked over his shoulder from the very corner of his eye from time to time as to not draw attention, getting a good look at her as they went down the hall. While he initially thought she was just a human with an interest in plants and a somewhat wild imagination, a closer look made it very obvious she wasn't just quite human. Her hair was unusually smooth looking and gave off the same light as her skin that in itself didn't look the exact same as flesh and blood. Subtle differences but she'd stick out like a sore thumb back in Kurn even if she did have an almost offensively positive attitude. As he watched her a bit more he noticed some of the more subtle emotions she was displaying, even a moment of genuine sadness. The worst part was the obvious pity in her eyes that she made no attempts to hide, even when they met. It gave Nathan a bizarre mix of annoyance and appreciation he couldn't quite explain. As insulting and unnecessary the gesture was, it was never one people could afford back home. That's what made Here such an interesting place to be. As well as a painful place to stay.

When they entered the hall the girl instantly found herself enthralled with one of the pictures and without any warning she jumped right into it. Nathan sighed quietly as he closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead with a hand. "She has energy, at least. Still deciding if that's good or bad," he mumbled to himself as he leaned his back against a blank stretch of wall and waited as he continued to massage his temples, making no attempt to follow in after her. Paintings like that made him uncomfortable, stuffing people into tight or compressed space. Despite her perfectly safe was, Here still had the potential to cause worry. As he minutes ticked on by in his head he began to hear voices. He cracked one eye open as a group of three wandered right into the hall and went into the painting after Eden, paying no mind to the boy with the gas mask. "Glad to see people are just as willing to ignore me here as they are in my world," he said quietly to himself, not a trace of sarcasm in his voice.
