From here.

After leaving Ava, Sam's days were busy, because while he wasn't at Belisaere, he was still close to it. He had been planning on traveling farther south to connect with Nick and check on a few Charter Stones, talking to Ava simply sped everything up.

Getting a Paperwing took a little longer than he expected and he remembered how much he didn't like them. He preferred to get from one place to another closer to the ground, he felt more secure. Up in the air, the Charter felt farther away even though the Paperwing was swift and imbued with the Charter.

After dodging one rising storm, he landed not far from the North Road and the Wall and sent the Paperwing back to Belisaere with a whistled spell, it wouldn't do for traveling now. He adjusted his belt to get his sword hanging properly and started towards the Charter Stone that he called out to him, there was a structure near it that had a door.

Ava has no idea how long she's been nursing this coffee.

In fact, by now 'nursing' is too strong a word: She's mostly in a subdued staring match with her coffee.

She has on the necklace Sameth made her, the shirt he gave her, and-- as threatened-- sneakers. Also in evidence: a dagger the size of her forearm, sheathed.

If anybody asks (who isn't Elle or X), it's totally Sameth's and not hers.

"Hey!" Ava says, jumping to attention with what is nearly a literal jump.

"What's up? Did you find Nick?"

"Sure," Ava says, slightly sheepish.

She undoes the clasp and holds the necklace out.

"... For the record, what are you gonna do exactly?"

Ava watches closely, although it's not like she knows from this type of magic. She wouldn't notice if anything was going wrong, much less be able to stop it.

... And maybe this is the wrong time for paranoia.

The immediate future holds so many more exciting opportunities!

"... Noooo," Ava says.

"I could ask Bar if she'll let me borrow one?"

Now that's an interesting idea.

"Watch my stuff," she says, getting up.

A minute later she's walking back, wrapped in a cloak of a nondescript, gray-brown shade.

"Well, good to know I'm staying fashionable."

Ava's got the dagger strapped to her hip by now. She glances through the open door, frowns at Sameth--

Here we go.

And steps through.

Ava follows cautiously, hand drifting lightly to her necklace.

It feels warmer than before.

Her nose wrinkles.

"Are we gonna have to go through, like, customs?"

She's about to repeat explain? in an incredulous tone, but then she remembers oh, right.

Sameth has pull around here.

"Whatever works," she decides, glancing from him to the surrounding countryside. It's not all that different from Milliways: kinda cold, a lot of grays and greens. Feels bigger, though.

And it's apparently a lot more dangerous.

Ava tugs the cloak a little closer around her as they go.

"So-- we don't know anything new?" she says.

"How long has it been out here?"

She frowns.

"But no news on the mummy."

Ava sighs, hrumphily.

From: [personal profile] hadyougoing
Ava keeps most of her awareness on the road ahead, but saves some of it for her periphery and the tingly area at the back of her neck.

Milliways Security excepted, she hasn't really interacted with any kind of law enforcement. She dimly recalls that the last time she did, her body count was a lot lower.
