"Okay, now I understand." Natasha replied with smile and a quick nod when Tengu explained to Nat what her conscience was. It was her conscious or consciousness. Natasha had never quite heard it referred to as a "conscience", but obviously they must in certain parts of the world.

Natasha listened with great interest to who Tengu related to her the history of the island and its history. Natasha was fascinated by all of it. The fact that the island was already mysterious when Starlight was founded explained a lot. Natasha couldn't wait to discover more things and see more places on Manta Carlos. "Tengu, was Cordelia Moor a witch, was she magical like many here on the island?" Natasha asked interested in why she would open a school for those with special skills and from all race.

"I dunno, maybe?" stated Tengu with a shrug "I think she is a human with some gift that allowed her find this island while most others were unable. But who knows who or what she really is. You have all sorts of folk on this island from people from normal humans to gods. I'm sure you can found out more about her in a library or asking residents whom are more knowledgeable than I." suggested Tengu after answering Natasha's question. As she continues to walk with Natasha, a question popped in her mind.

"Oh! Your pretty new now aren't ya? Do you have place that your staying at? If so I can help lead the way to your new home! If not... well... the city tries to be as accommodating as it can be with all the new arrivals so if you don't currently have a place for you stay we can go to the place that can help you get sorted!"

Natasha's eyes grew wide in surprise when Tengu mentioned that there were gods living on the island. She had never considered such a thing was possible, so much so that she blurted out in surprised awe, "Gods live here on the island? Like Norse or Egyptian gods... " she asked Tengu barely able to contain her curious excitement.

"No, not yet..." Natasha replied with a shake of her head. "I'm still kind of looking for a place to live. I've looked at a few apartments, but I dunno... I miss my little cottage in Wales." she confessed as she walked beside Tengu glad to have met the friendly harpy. "I didn't think I would miss living in a house, but now that I have to find a new place to live, everything seems small to me," she confessed, "Where do you live?" Nat asked curiously, "Maybe you can recommend someplace that I can buy..."

"Well... not really those gods... at least as far as I know... but a lot of their children seem to say in this place. I remember giving a package to a child whom was a son of Anubis! Of course there lots of lesser or relatively unknown gods that come to live. There are gods... who come... from SPACE!" exclaimed Tengu, unnecessarily dramatic. She giggles for a moment at her own silliness. When the subject turns to Natasha's living accommodations, Tengu perked up and looked to Natasha reassuringly.

"You know, your not the first person that I met whom has gotten homesick upon arriving her. In fact... I know a lot of people whom had little other chose but to come here and leave their homes behind. But... if you give this place a chance it will start to feel like home!" comforted Tengu whom then continues on telling Natasha about her own living accommodations.

"Well... I live in an apartment in one of the residential zones. Its nothing fancy but then I really don't need much! Just me, my roommate, and my two cats! The landlady is like... super nice so... maybe you can maybe talk to her about a room! We could be neighbors!" laughed Tengu

"Ha ha ha, but its probably a good idea to check out some of the other places as well, apartment complex that I go to is more catered to people whom need more... specialized accommodations." remarked Tengu as they both continue to walk side by side.

"That is so cool, Tengu..." Natasha remarked in complete awe, not at all disappointed in the fact that only the children of gods seemed to be living on the island. "And gods from space?!... Well, that's just so crazy. I'd have never even considered such a thing." she admitted stunned, not even sure she could even process this yet. It confirmed so many things that she believed about there being life on other planets. "So, that means that there are humans, ah, creatures, beings?... " Natasha said with uncertainty as she corrected herself, not sure that calling someone from another planet a human was the correct thing to do, "from outer space here on Manta Carlos, too? That's so unbelievable..." she added with a tiny shake of her head - Manta Carlos was certainly an incredible place.

Hearing Tengu tell her that she might be homesick, made Natasha realize that she was probably right. That was probably the reason everything Natasha looked at, every apartment, condo, house, was somehow lacking compared to her old place in Wales. "You are probably right, and I didn't realise it til now. I think I am a little homesick," she admitted looking at Tengu and smiling at her cheerful optimism. "And you know what, I think I do need to give the island a chance," she stated, determined to make the island her new home.

"You have two cats?" Natasha asked curiously, "I love cats. They are so cute and smart, and, choosy about who they love. You need to be a special person for a cat to bond with you." Natasha said. "Cats know good people." she added with a grin.

"What's your roommate like? Is it fun living with somebody?" Nat asked, adding, "I've never really had a roommate, not even when I was human, I always had my own rooms and apartments." she confessed, wondering what it was like to live with somebody that wasn't family.

"Yep yep! There are some people whom come from other dimensions or... paraelle timelines! Gets confusing after awhile. But yes! Cats are good people! Even if they are not people people... thought some cats are people... not my cats though, they pretty normal cats. At least as far as I know." discussed Tengu, realizing that she might have been a bit confusing and so clarifies "Oh by that I mean... there are some cats her whom are intelligent enough to be considered citizens so... its something to be aware of. If your not sure if an animal is person or just a pet or stray animal, just look to see if they have certain band on them. There a lot of citizens here whom have animal forms so its important that they have those bands on them so that people don't confuse them. "

After her lengthy explanation, breaths in and lets out a small chuckle "Ha ha... even if they are not exactly people... they are smart AND cute! As for my roommate? Oh well he is like... super nice! Some people think he is intimidating looking because of his sharp teeth and buggy tail on his butt be he is rather courteous... and my cats like him too so he is good person in my book! Its been nice though despite being roommates... we don't often see each as often as you think as we are always... busy people. In fact I he recently had an adventure somewhere in space... I'd have to ask him about all the details of that trip though!"

Tengu then looks down to her wrist, testing the way her wing extends. Her eyes seem trained on spot between the joints but after while she just shrugs and resumes her conversation with Natasha.

"But yeah, I say so fair its been a nice experience having my roommate Jackal around! I'm sure you will find plenty of interesting roommates around though if you happen to be looking for one."

(Sorry for taking so long to answer.)

"So that explains all the bands I've been seeing..." Natasha murmured thoughtfully. She had seen quite a few animals wearing them, and had thought they were just ID collars or something like that. "Metamorphosis. Makes sense actually... " she said looking around them curiously now, seeing if she could spot anything wearing a band, excited that she actually knew now what that meant too, and hoping she actually got a chance to meet somebody who could change their form.

"Is there someplace I can adopt a cat or two?" Natasha suddenly asked Tengu with a hopeful look in her eyes, not realising til now how much she missed having a feline or two in her life. And since she was starting a new life, why not start with a pet or two? The idea sounded most logical to her. First a pet, then a new home.

"That's sounds so great." Natasha said truthfully, she thought it was nice that her roommate and Tengu's cats got along. It sounded like they were a family in a way, and Natasha sort of envied that. It had been years, more like many decades, since she had had people she could count on or come home too.

"Crazy! I really think I need to check out that space thing one day... sounds amazing. Would you, maybe, like to accompany me, maybe with your roommate?" Natasha asked hesitantly but with a warm smile, "I honestly didn't know you could travel beyond the Earth, and I'd love to go with a friend." she added, feeling that Tengu was someone she could easily be friends with.

"OH! All sorts of places actually! I know of several pet stores and animal shelters off the top of my head actually. Of course they often have more than just cats. You never quite know what you might find in some of them as even seemingly ordinary looking animals might turn out to be rather extra-ordinary. I can give you a name of a few places that I know of personally if you like." responded Tengu to Natasha's question on where to find finds. Both of her own cats she got when they were but kittens at a pet store.

"Oh it is! It is a really great view!" remarked Tengu, when the question turned to taking Natasha to the space station with her and her roommate, Tengu's face lit up brightly.

"Oh yeah! Sure I can take you on one of my days off of work! I have been so busy down here that its been FOREVER since I went up there. I will be sure to ask my roommate Jackal to come along to but... he has a tendency to get really busy so... no promises if he would come with out or not." sheepishly replied Tengu, unsure of Jackal's whole schedule as he may have to go off planet to do something like save alien race again or something.

"Well anywho, I'm sure even if is just us I'm sure you will still enjoy it. Well if we do end up going I guess that makes us friends now?" mused Tengu, putting on smile and letting out a chuckle.

"I'd love if you could..." Natasha replied with a happy nod at Tengu's offer, "I think I'll probably start with the shelter first. I really love the idea of giving a home to an abandoned animal." Natasha admitted. The idea of somebody just leaving an animal behind saddened her. She could only imagine the fear and loneliness the animals felt when they realised the ones they most trusted had left them behind like they meant nothing... In fact, as Natasha thought this, her eyes started to swell and her throat constrict as memories of the past came flooding in. She herself had been abandoned, left to die by someone she had loved and trusted, and the feelings she had buried centuries ago, almost came flooding out... Trying to hide this, Natasha breathed deeply, and forced the feelings down, deeper, she didn't need Tengu thinking she was some unstable ninny, crying over the idea of adopting a pet.

"I can only imagine what it's like. I'm sure everything is amazing up there..." Natasha replied, very glad that Tengu thought it was a good idea if they all went up to the space station and wasn't put off by Natasha assuming they might become friends. "And no worries, I understand if your roommate is busy and can't come. I just thought it might be nice if he could come along too since you talk so fondly of him... "

"Actually, I feel like you are already a friend," Natasha admitted shyly as she looked at Tengu, "You have been so kind and welcoming, and well, I think that perhaps, we'd have a lot of fun together."

"Daww, thanks!" chirped Tengu, putting a wide smile "Glad that I made you feel welcomed here. I am sure we can do fun stuff together... whatever that might be. I mean, there are a lot of things to do here that you could take you several lifetimes to experience it... unless your immortal. Then it will just take long time."

Tengu then pondered over all the things this island has to offer. There was many organizations and establishments one could visit from thrill rides to karaoke and everything in between. While Tengu considered herself a person with a lot of friends, most days she was usually working and didn't always have time to make any real plans with them. But if Natasha wanted to do something with her she will have to be sure to work with her schedule to find the time that works for the both of them.

"But well to start off... seeing the space station would be a good start. It sure is quite amazing view in space... but you will be able to see that yourself once we are up there."

It was then Tengu also recalled how Natasha was thinking about adopting a cat. As a cat lover herself, it was kind gesture for Natasha to make and gave Tengu all sorts of good vibes about her.

"Oh! You have a good heart for taking in a cat from a shelter, I am sure that they forever be grateful for giving them a loving home... once you find one that is~" mused Tengu.
