Barriers; Cava and Sora Evens

A fog horn sounded off on distant currents, compelling Cava to shade her eyes with her hand so she could better see the source, a barge coming into port.

Cava stood on a beach, just upstream from where the ocean met a river so wide that it could have been mistaken for a sea all it's own, even if it was smaller than the amazon. In the distance she saw the walled metropolis of Sao Poalo, along with the merchant fleets that headed to it. Before the time of quirks Cava's vantage point would not have been possible, but a changing climate had brought the ocean closer inland, allowing her to be at once close to the Atlantic and in view of the city.

Even from miles away the barges headed to the city seemed enormous. They were like skyscrapers that floated on their sides, guided by forces so powerful that Cava could not have conceived of them. Cava had been away form civilization for most of her life. For her fleets of floating towers would have been interesting enough, but the real treat was just beginning.

There was a chugging sound, louder than even the engines of the barges. It was coming from the city in which the ships were to dock.

Chug, chug, chug!

The city was surrounded by a wall that cast a shadow over even the tallest rain forest trees. It braced against the jungle and water. As the wall's machinery chugged louder Cava gasped. A segment of wall, miles long and many stories tall, pushed out into the river. It was so huge that even the fleets of barges would have been swept aside like toys had they been in the wrong position.

This was one of Sao Poalo's great sea barriers. In times of hurricanes the barrier stood against storm surges strong enough to wash away whole towns, but during days of fair weather the wall opened the city up to what the entire world had to offer. Cava wowed the scene, watching Sao Poalo swallow whole fleets of floating towers.

When the wall was fully extended, it halted with a great clank sound that resounded for miles. The show over, Cava sat back on the sand.

Anyone who had lived in Sao Poalo would've been used to the great barrier, but Cava had only recently arrived. It was novel to her. With a huff she lay back in the sand, the seagulls casting shadows over her as they called to each other in the sky. The sun was too bright for Cava, so she closed her eyes. It was nice to take in the sound of the waves.

Cava wanted to go get into Sao Poalo, but she could only do that by sea, and didn't have money to spare on a ferry trip. She had considered scaling the city wall, but decided against it imagining her self falling with a splat. She had read that Sao Poalo was impoverished, but that it was still wealthier than Rio, or anywhere else in Brazil. If that were the case it would be the most happening place she had ever been if only she could actually get there.

With a sigh, Cava sat back up. She turned around to look at the jungle further inland. The bushes and trees arrayed before her was another barrier she had not penetrated. It was dangerous to do so. Indeed, she traveled south from Peru, along the Andes mountains, all the way down to the southern tip of Chili, then back up north along South America's easy cost to avoid the jungle. She intended to explore it someday. A day when she was stronger or had people with her.

When she looked carefully she spotted the copper tone eyes of an Ocelot peaking at her from behind a sand dune. With a smile, Cava lowered herself to the ground to appear less intimidating. She hoped to coax the wild cat out. Cava wished she had some fish or similar bait to lure the feline, but she would have to make due with patience.

It was rather strange to be somewhere different, it seemed so strange to leave Japan after spending so long there and apparently it wasn’t the last time that they’d be visiting there as this trip was a little different; this trip was just Spirit and one of his foster parents as the other stayed back in Japan hence why they would be returning once the business was taken care of here, what that business was Spirit had no clue but he wasn’t exactly excited about the trip either. However the worst part was yet to come in the trip, the last means of travelling to the destination was via boat and that wasn’t something Spirit was used to nor was he looking forward to it for the worry of being sea sick, travelling by boat couldn’t be that bad now, could it?

From what Spirit knew about the trip is that it wouldn't be a long one, a few days at max if he were lucky enough rather than being stuck here for a considerable amount of time as there were a few problems which caused him some worry; he didn't know the area nor did he speak or understand the langues used here also the climate was a pain were he wasn't used to the heat along with the fact that he was pale with the complexion capable of burning which also means it wouldn't be difficult to point him out from where he simply didn't fit in.

However when the boat came to port there seemed to be some sort of issue that was announced causing the trip to be delayed before reaching its final desintiaton which was an inconveince as Spirit didn't feel like being stuck on the boat nor this small port and it didn't look like there was much going on in the area. Some passengers took relish in the freedom from the boat in which Spirit followed and shared a brief conversation with his foster parent that he was simply going for a walk as there would be a few hours until the boat would be moving again.

As Spirit found himself walking along away from the port the nearest area that was well shaded was near the beach front yet it didn't seem like the typical scenes of nature that he was used to and it didn't seem particularly safe either yet there was something that managed to catch his eye. A figure at the far end seemingly just standing there staring at the jungle before them, but why? Spirit didn't have the slightest clue as he made his way closer with his crutch in hand like usual, yet he didn't get too close and simply waited to watch whatever the scene was unfold, just what were they looking at or what were they waiting for but he was sure to get an answer soon.

Cava watched the Ocelot peak out from behind the dune, then lower it's head down, then peak back up again, then lower back again, a pattern it kept repeating, but each rise of its gaze was longer and higher, it's low point shorter. It's fear of Cava was easing. The girl had no reason to believe that the wild felid could ever be her pet. Even so she smiled. She wanted to test just how comfortable she could get this cat to be around her. If she could just persuade the ocelot that it need not flee at the sight of her, that would have been victory enough.

The cat suddenly darted its gaze to something else. Cava's smile faded, and she blinked confused. She turned her sights to mimic the cat. She jumped startled. Cava had been so focused on her target that she hadn't notice the man watching. The ocelot, frightened by Cava's sudden jump, dashed back into the dunes. The girl reflexively reached for the cat, even though it was more than five meters away, but let her arm and head fall in defeat when the it was out of her sight. Her original target vanished she turned to the boy that had disrupted her concentration. She knit her brows and glared to express her disappointment.

After a moment Cava sighed her resentment away. It wasn't really the boy's fault after all.

Cava scanned the boy from crown to sole. In her thoughts she conceded that there was something about him that was striking. That something could have been his height as he was a few heads taller than Cava, or it could have been his slender yet muscular build and broad shoulders. It might have been his sharp facial features. Perhaps his chiseled chin and cheek bones or maybe it was his blue-grey eyes that were so deep that one could get lost in them. Whatever it was however it didn't change one all important fact; the boy was a stranger. A stranger who was bigger and stronger than Cava, and who knew what his quirk was? Cava knew that in all likelihood he was harmless, but that didn't mean he was. She tried to find some sign he might be dangerous, but she couldn't tell ether way.

She took a deep breath through her nose. In fact, she was sniffing to make sure else was hiding in ambush, but was careful to make it look like she were just breathing. He didn't want to show him all his cards.

She stepped back and stared at the boy until awkwardness set in. Despite the risk she looked away from the stranger to the bush ahead. With her hand on her side she said, "Pode voltar novamente"

She tapped her finger on her side as she thought.

"
Você nunca sabe. ocelotes são animais timidos."

Spirit had no idea what was unfolding before him but it seemed like his appearance had shifted some sort of balance which was taking place and the young girl did not seem very pleased about his appearance coming into the scene which was made clear by the glare which formed in her expression; luckily enough however the expression faded and she seemed more relax yet Spirit felt as if she was alittle on edge as she simply stared at him, the reasons were unknown to him, perhaps it was to do with how he looked in general or perhaps even his pale complexion as it could’ve been the first time she had seen anyone of it but even he thought that was unlikely.

The big question on his mind was to do with what she was even doing here and why would she be so far away from everyone; she wasn’t from the boat he could easily confirmed that during his travel here, so the only conclusion Spirit could think of is that she was native here to these islands or around the area and he was pretty sure that tribes didn’t exist in this day and age even though there was evidence that might suggest otherwise but that really wasn’t the case here. During all this time he hadn’t noticed that she was still just staring at him with those dark green eyes, staring and not saying anything and it was starting to get rather awkward and even that was starting to show on his expression as he seemed rather unsure of what to do.

Posted Image
As he expected as soon as she spoke it was complete and utter gibberish to him, he had no idea what she was saying, he couldn’t even work out if she was annoyed, happy, sad, with the words coming out of her mouth he couldn’t really match the tone of voice which already proved to be difficult and judging by this information she doesn’t know a single word of English otherwise she would of began with that or at least thats what Spirit thought. Spirit simply leaned his body weight on the crutch in his right hand as the base of it sunk into the sand further which was annoying but at least it was secure, he wasn’t really sure what to make of the situation and found her speaking once again with only one word making sense which was “Ocelot?”

Pondering on the situation more Spirit must have disturbed the scene earlier involving one of the creatures, what she was doing with one of the creatures or aiming to do with it but it didn’t exactly seem like a good idea; but none the less Spirit simply just sighed and shook his head before lightly shrugging his left shoulder and speaking in a dull tone as if he already knew that his attempt of communication was pointless. “I don’t understand you, I only speak English.” It wasn’t all a bad thing though, if she was going to scold him further for anything that he did, at least he wouldn’t be able to understand her.

Cava's raised her brows when she heard English come out of the boy's mouth, but so did her eyes brighten when she took in the unfamiliar words. She rubbed her chin in thought. She took a few seconds to see everything sounding them.

She lifted her arm and pointed.

"Rocha." she said pointing to a rock pocking out of the water. She said the word again, slowly enunciating certain sounds so the boy could get a better grasp of pronunciation. "Rrrroooh-shha" She repeated this several times to help him understand.

Like a weather vain she shifted her finger to a tree.

"Árvore" She said. "Arrr-vooo-reee."

Cava turned to point to the water, but her finger drooped as it occurred to her that the boy might misunderstand if she refereed to the whole body of water. She waded in water splashing it aside, the gooy sediment on the bottom oozing between her toes. She lowered her body, and cupped her hands to scoop up the water.

"agua" Cava tilted her hands to let the liquid flow out between her fingers. "a-goo-a"

The girl then stepped out of the water, dripping wet form the knees down, and nealed in the sand. Once again she scooped up the sand to alleviate confusion. "Areia." She let the fine grains cascade between her fingers, almost sneezing as she smelled the finer particles of the substance. "a-rey-a"She stood up, and brushed her hands together to free them of dust. Her hands at her sides she looked left and right for something else to point to. Finally she looked up.

"Nuvem"
She said looking up at a cloud. "noo-vehm." With that final translation Cava thought the boy would need time to absorb and solidify all she was teaching him. Even so, she decided to translate one more thing for him.

She stood before the boy with her chin high. She placed her hand between her breast.

"Cava." She said. She waited, anticipating the boy would return the favor that she was granting him.

The situation was certainly getting interesting, Spirit had no idea how this was going to work out as it was clear by the expression which had shown on her face but then it seemed she was trying to come up with such a solution to this so called dilema; Spirit watched her carefully with the typical blank expressio on her face as she made her way over towards the water before leaning down to pick up a rock which could've been worrying should she had decided to throw it at him for scaring away the animal but she simply said a word while poinitng at it which Spirit could only translate that word to being rock.

This process continued on for a little while as the girl continued to translate their surroundings into words that Spirit would easily be able to piece together however he was unsure what her end goal with it all was, perhaps she was expecting him to do the same but for now he simply waited and listened to her words still unsure on where she was going with this. It all finally came to an end before Spirit watched the girl finally address herself with a simple motion and spoke her name which was the conclusion he had came to, it was rather a long winded way of doing things in his eyes but it seemed she just wanted to be sure with what she was saying and doing.

Posted Image
Rather than being long-winded about the whole thing Spirit simply sped up a similar process to what she did as he pointed towards a large rock on the beach with his crutch before pronouncing the word as she did and followed it up with what he assumed was the translation. "Rocha, Rock." With his accent and expressionless tone, it must've sounded rather different regardless but perhaps she still would've understand as Spirit then started to move the base of the crutch around in the sand, repeating the same process yet again "Ar-eia, Sand."

Lastly Spirit returned to his usual posture before simply pointing at himself with his right hand and spoke as clear for her as possible "Spirit." He still had no idea why he was even talking to her, nor why she was going through the lengths to even try to communicate with him but it was still more than likely better being stuck with all those still waiting for the ship to continue with its journey and surely there wouldn't be any harm in doing this nor could anything go wrong, right?

"Spirit." Cava repeated. Cava's emerald eyes met his. Her smile grew "Spirit!" Her smile grew large enough to show her teeth. For a second she was lost in the boy's eyes, but she snapped to awareness, when she remembered what she was really doing.



Rock!. Cava repeated the word several times to remember it. The other English words, "cloud" "Sand" "Water" and "Tree" she also repeated. With her finger tip she caved the words into the sand, spelling them all phonetically, and therefore very wrong, but at least it helped her remember.

Cava ran all over the beach, collecting and pointing to many different things.

"
Barco"
she said pointing to a far away boat.

"Pneu" She refereed to a washed up tire.

"Gafanhoto" Cava presented a grasshopper longer than both of her hands put together. The giant grasshopper waved it's antennae in confusion.

She assigned a word for every object she could find. She even pointed to her own arms and legs. Each time she anticipated that Spirit might give the English translation.

Cava decided to mix things up.

She picked up three rocks and plopped them down before Spirit. She waved her hand over them "Pedras."

She touched the first one. "um."

She placed her finger tip on the second one. "dois"

She touched the third. "Tres." Just to make sure Spirit understood, she repeated the process. "Um, Dois, Tres."

With this done. Cava sat back. She stared at him deliberately trying to make him feel awkward. She wanted him to go find objects and tell her what they were called. Better yet, he might get creative and try to covey more complex concepts. She hoped he would somehow get her message if she stared at him long enough.

As she returned she seemed to have come back with a small collection of things, somehow she managed to grab hold of what seemed to be some sort of insect; the poor thing being used as an example but at least it wasn't in any danger or harms way. Spirit simply let out a quiet sigh as he lowered himself down to sit on a nearby rock, letting the crutch lean against it once letting go while continuing to watch her actions and listen to her words. "Pedras?" He seemed a little confused by what she said until she started counting and it seemingly started to make sense as he knew the first few numbers out of general knowledge perhaps Pedras meant something along the line of numbers? Spirit couldn't be too sure on the matter.

Her piercing gaze was set on him once again as Spirit simply frowned and sighed once more, he could easily tell by her facial expression and body language that she was expecting him to do the same in return, being able to read the situation rather well. Spirit raised his right hand up in front of him and extended three of his fingers before spreading them out and then raised his left hand to mimic her actions of counting. "One, Two, Three." With each number his finger moved to count the others, just as she did before turning his attention to the other objects which were around them.

Spirit raised his right hand and clenched a fist before extending his thumb out to point behind his shoulder towards the boat which he was on and simply spoke the words just as she did. "Boat." He then made the fist once more before pointing his index finger towards the washed up tire on the ground. "Tire" The problem with it all now is that it seemed like she was expecting him to say more than what she had and didn't really know what to use as an example before simply reaching up and pinching a small portion of his hair and other parts of his body. "Hair, eyes, nose, mouth."

Cava giggled at spirit pinching his hair and various part of his face, particularly after the pitch of his voice changed upon pinching his nose. It wasn't what the girl was expecting, but she had to admit he did what she wanted him too.

"Nariz." She said touching the tip of her nose with her finger tip.

"Boca, Cabelo." She pointed the her mouth at the word Boca, and twirled several strands of her own hair in her finger tips.

Finally she pointed to her emerald eyes. "Olho" She paused after pointing. She was still a little enchanted by Spirit's Olho, deep and blue gray. She looked into them and got lost for a second. Cava shook her head back to awareness.

Cava held her chin high at the thought of how much progress she and her new friend had made in translating each other's language. So much so that she scanned the area for a way to celebrate. Her eyes shined when she found one dangling from a tree's branches. It was too dangerous to venture the rain forest, but Cava was certain she would be safe scaling a tree on it's outskirts. She made her way to the tree, looked up, and liked her lips.

Cava whipped her arms like they were the wings on a bird and in an instant, her fingers grew, and transformed into strands of Spanish moss. The strands twirled around each other fusing into one long vine. Cava whipped her two fine arms around a tree branch, and pulled herself up, swinging her way up with the same ease as a monkey, the branches swaying under her weight. She let out a euphoric sigh upon reaching the fruit she desired.

Cava jumped down from the tree and transformed her moss vine hands back into normal human appendages. She approached Spirit presenting a short oblong, almost circular object, that felt as hard as wood, weighed a few pounds, and was large enough that Cava had to use both hand to hold it. She then hoisted the object over head, and thrust it on a rock. There was a crack as the object split in half width wise. What was inside was, white, flaky, flesh.

Cava dug out some of the flesh with her hand, she put some in her mouth, and then offered it to Spirit. "Cupuaçu." She said.

The girl took some of the flesh into her own palm, and tilted her head back to pour it in. The fruit tasted at once tasted like nothing and many things at once. It's tasted sweet, sour, and tart, but most of all it left a bitter after taste reminiscent of unsweetened chocolate.

Cava sat down on a bolder to enjoy the fruit and the company of her new friend.

Why the girl giggled Spirit had no idea, was there something funny about the situation or perhaps did she remember something and it just happened to make her giggle but none the less the exchange of words continued in a lesson like manner which started to dwell on Spirits mind, would he even remember any of this or would any of this be useful later on? He never really usually gave anyone his name, most people he would only meet the once and wouldn't even bother giving a name because it wouldn't matter in the long run, perhaps it was just the matter of being polite and with the language barrier things were already somewhat awkward; Spirit had noticed the girl staring at him for a moment as if caught in a daydream and the only conclusion was that she didn't have a very long attention span and got side-tracked rather easilly.

Posted Image
However what happened next managed to catch Spirit off-guard as the young girl made her over towards to one of the nearby trees before her fingers started to grow into vine-like moss from what Spirit could make out and it was clear that her quirk had something to do with plant-life or at least something to do with the forest or perhaps her surroundings and there was no doubt that it could prove to be deadly under the right circumstances but surely it wouldn't come to anything like that, right? Shortly afterwards the young girl returned with some strange fruit or object of some kind, in which Spirit just looked rather puzzled for once, one of the only times he really showed any expression at all but that quickly faded shortly afterwards she broke the fruit in half with the help of a rock.

However upon seeing the fruit an expression on his face appeared yet again, he looked rather disgusted, Spirit wasn't a big lover of fruits nor vegetables but now was the dilemma of how to refuse in a way that she would understand and not take any offense from his words or his actions; Spirit simply shook his head as if to say no and simply waved his hand to mimic his actions. The conversation seemed to come to a halt, Spirit wasn't exactly sure what to do from here on wards nor did he really know what to do as he looked over his shoulder and there was no sign that his boat would be leaving anytime soon.
"No."

What a dilemma.

Cava blinked twice, the half of fruit still in her hand. She had never heard of Cupuaçu being rejected before. With a shrug she shoved her face into her half of the fruit, but she left the other half at Spirit's feet, just in case he changed his mind.

With her belly was full of Cupacu, Cava was left to sit on her rock, and point her gaze strait ahead to avoid locking eyes with Spirit. It was just too awkward. Sitting in silence allowed Cava to hear the forest. The chippings of toucans, the whistles of macaws, the occasional bellow of a howler monkey. She inhaled the smell of the woods. Flowers intermixed with bark, and the sweet candy smell of the fruit at Spirit's feet. It was settling.

A rustling in the the tree tops turned Cava's sights upwards. It took her a moment to see it, through the leaves and twisted branches, but when she found it she smiled. Perched on a tree limb was a blue macaw, a parrot as large as as turkey hen, with sapphire colored feathers on it's back, and wings, and a golden colored underbelly. Cava motioned to nudge Spirit in the shoulder. She pointed to the macaw.

Cava glanced at Spirit once more before she put her hands around her mouth to call to the parrot.

"Eyes!" She called. Her pronunciation was already near devoid of accent. The parrot tilted it's head for a better look at Cava.

"Eyes!" She called again. The parrot blinked bewildered a the girl. Cava stood up and called out even louder than before. "Eyes!" The parrot tilted it's head again. It squawked.

"Rrrrraaaack. Eyes. rrrrrack"

Cava nodded back to Spirit, desiring that he follow suit. Whatever his response she leaned back. She looked over the wall of trees with a sigh. She wanted to go deeper, she wanted to see more. She rested her elbow on her thigh, and rested her cheek on her hand, and started to day dream about going further in. It was not the only day dream on her mind. She also glanced out of the corner of her eye. at the Walled city of Sao Poalo another place desired to go.

Spirit had a hunch of what her quirk entailed and pondered of the possibilities of its limitations and it’s weaknesses as well as it’s strengths. However there was more than likely no need to worry about these things, the girl seemed harmless enough yet he couldn’t let his guard down just in case, it was both a gift and a curse on how his mind worked; but then suddenly there was rustling coming from one of the trees which immediately grabbed Spirits attention.

Luckily enough it wasn’t anything to worry about, it was simply a bird of some kind, an oversized parrot from what Spirit could make it, were they really this large in the wild compared to those who keep such animals as pets? The light nudge which knocked his shoulder from the girl sitting beside him, while continuing to focus his attention on the avian-creature as Cava called out to him while using her newfound words of English in attempt to get the parrot to mimic her words just as she did moments ago. However there wasn’t a response on the first attempt at calling the bird as it simply just stood perched while staring towards them before Cava had made the attempt at calling out again and in which to Spirits surprise, the bird actually called out and mimicked the word rather quickly.

Posted Image
It seemed as if Cava wanted Spirit to do the same and call out to the bird in an attempt that it would respond back once again, it wasn’t something Spirit wanted to do but as he was considering doing it just for her sake, a few flat-sounding beeps sounded off from within his pocket before Spirit retrieved his phone from within; it was nothing but a text simply saying that the boat would be leaving in just under an hour’s time which meant that there was more time to kill which was alittle annoying as Spirit was unsure on what to do and what little he could do in the company of Cava but there was something that Spirit noticed, her attention which kept turning towards the forest. Spirit simply stood up and slowly made his way over towards the opening in the forest with crutch in hand before turning his attention to Cava before simply raising his left hand and pointed towards the forest as if to indicate if she wanted to go in there.

"Beep, beep."
The parrot said, mimicking the sound of Spirit's text alert. Cava tilted her head at the device. She had seen smartphones before, but they were not an everyday item for the poverty stricken South American continent. She leaned towards the screen, it's light reflected in her eyes. It was fascinating, yet she leaned back so not to intrude too much on Spirit.

When Spirit approached the forest, Cava jumped to her feet, fearing that he might try to enter it.

"Não! Não!" She shook her head and raised her palms to signal "Stop." She did not want her new friend getting himself killed by a monster in the jungle. It took a second before she was clam enough to contemplate what he was trying to say, as he pointed to the opening between a Brazilian mahogany and the external roots, twice as thick as a man is tall, of a Wimba. He was just asking if she wanted to go.

Cava blinked as Spirit's true meaning sunk in. Her gaze shifted downwards. She placed her hands behind the small of her back, gripping her left wrist with her right hand, while figgiting her toes in the sand.

"Gostaria de ir um dia, mas ..." Cava lowered her gaze even further, twisting her foot out of nervous habit until it was half buried in the sand. She scrunched her brow contemplating how to explain her contradictory feelings of the forest. She placed a finger on her chin, looked up into her thoughts, and after a second contemplation walked to the edge of the opening.

Cava pointed to the sky. "Algum dia..." Like the sun, Cava moved the direction of her finger in a arc, from east to south to west. "Quando eu sou mais forte ..." Cava flexed her right biceps. "Então vou entrar na floresta e contar ao mundo o que encontro." Cava faced the opening of the forest with her chin high and her fist at her side. She lifted her fist to march in place. "Mas até então..." Cava shrunk away from the opening, shaking her head. "...Eu não ouso aventurar-se em."

The girl sighed. She didn't know if spirit understood, but she did have something to say, that she was almost positive he would understand.

"Você pode me levar lá?" Cava nodded to the walled city of Sao Poalo. She looked at him expectantly, like a child asking for candy.

For some reason it was annoying that the bird was basically an echo of the noises around them and there was probably some cases where a creature such as this has repeated something it shouldn’t and resulted in some unfortunate scenario yet that was very unlikely going to happen here; Spirit however noticed the closeness from Cava as she was leaning over to try and look at the screen as it occurred to him that she probably didn’t even own such a piece of technology let alone having actually seen one up close before thus Spirit decided to keep his cool rather than scold her for the invasion of his space but it would probably be wasted as she wouldn’t understand anyhow.

Yet it seem Spirit struck a wrong chord with her when he mentioned the forest and pointed towards the opening to the deeper woodlands, of course there would be some sort of creatures and insects in there, some that would provide cause harm or perhaps something fatal but what could be so interesting within there? But once again the language barrier had begun to set in as Spirit now had to do his best to interpret her words but it was very unlikely that he would be able to make sense of it as none of the words sounded similar to the English tongue.

Spirit turned on his heels and moved away from the opening with crutch in hand and walked past Cava and simply stared towards the boat before letting out a quiet sigh, he was completely hopeless in this situation, he couldn’t even think of a way to even attempt communication and there wasn’t any point trying to use his phone for translations as the translation software’s were usually awful and would no doubt end up saying something which one of them didn’t mean to say; with that thought in mind Spirit turned round to face her once again and stuck with trying to interpret as much as he could.

Posted Image
Her final words and actions were the most noticeable as Spirit took attention to her tone of voice and the expression on her face, along with the movement of her eyes going towards the walls of the city and all that he could imply is that she wished to go towards the city but seemingly had no real means to or perhaps she was scared of the city and didn’t want to go back there although she had to? With another sigh Spirit turned round to face the boat yet again before raising his left hand and pointed towards the boat before slowly turning to point at the city as if to draw a path connecting the two.

“Go, Sao Poalo?”

Cava's smile grew when Spirit mentioned Sao Poalo. She responded with a strong nod, certain anything else she said would just confuse the situation more. The city didn't seem so far anymore, it's walls no longer impregnable.

Her time in Rio was a preview of what a city could be, but she had been told that Sao poalo was so much more. She beamed bright, but remembered she didn't have a ticket to the place yet. She couldn't afford one.

She rested her finger on her chin. Spirit might be willing to spot the money, but Cava never liked asking people for money even when she could speak their language. She felt sick with shame at the thought. However, this was her chance to get in. Plus he offerd. Sort of.

She again twisted her toes intot he sand. Thinking of how to ask, both in a figuritive and litterl sence..
"Uhhh..."

She lowered her head in thought. She cleared her throat. Cava reached into her pockets and pulled them until they were inside out, and revealed empty. The girl averted her gaze. Even if she knew English she would have been too embarrassed to say the words. She did the next best thing though. She looked up to him with the eyes of a puppy, and held her hands together in prayer. She hopped this would be enough to get him to take her to the city.
