The Queen leads Johnny Smith through the forest of Milliways. And at some point . . .

. . . at some point, it is no longer the forest of Milliways, but a grove of unfamiliar and unearthly trees.

A horse, white as milk, unshod, with small silver bells all along its mane and bridle, is tethered there, calmly cropping grass.

Johnny slowly looked around. For a brief moment, he felt lost in the trees again. Like when his visions were affected by the drug years ago. He then walked slowly toward the horse. It was a beautiful animal.

He studied her for a moment, it was interesting. How much more at ease she was here. But it's her home, to be expected.

"We haven't? Sorry, Johnny Smith, pleasure to meet you, and you are?"

His eyes widened at that. Pity his visions couldn't reveal that.

"Sarah used to quote poems that mentioned you..." He found himself saying with some wonder before his hand rose up to catch hers and be hauled upward.

It felt like he was still in his visions, only it was an ongoing one. There's only been a few times that has happened to him. But this was different. His hands held her waist instinctively, it was the only thing that kept him from flying off somewhere. His mouth gaped open slightly with surprise at all the sights flashing past them.

Johnny did recognize it.

"Here, may I get down your majesty? I saw this in my visions."

Johnny nodded, and carefully got down from the horse. He then walked over to the fork, and immediately knelt down, placing his hand at different spots in the path, seeking a vision. Something to connect to what he saw before.

He stood up, and pointed to each, "There's light down that way, and the court there... But this one, this one relates to the fire I saw." He just wished he knew how soon it would be happening. A sign.

He blinked at her, "You sound like Reverend Purdy." Then again, that light. It was faintly familiar, like during his coma, or when Walt was in one...

"And the winding path? The court?"

He stood up, and stepped back to her.

"Nothing else yet. I just get pieces, hints at a time with my visions." Which meant he had to keep going. There would be more clues later.

There was a questioning look on his face, as he took her hand to be helped up again. Not sure what she meant. What did speaking have to do with being lost?

But he remained silent.

Johnny kept silent, and simply observed his surroundings. Taking in the path, and the changes in landscape.

A new moon, and something seemed different about the constellations and stars.

Johnny was glancing upward for a moment so he missed the smugness.

"Trying to place some of the constellations here."

Johnny glanced over at her with some skeptical disbelief.

"Stars that sing?" He just knows them as giant balls of gas in space.

"You mean technology? Science? Most of us humans consider it pretty important."

"Actually it's freed us, we've explored even the oceans and space."

But he fell silent a moment later, and went back to observing.

Johnny turned to her.

"Think I'm seeing what you're getting at, and yes. We needed the lumber, and the land."

"Because a lot of people don't see forests, they just see the trees."

Date: 2008-10-03 03:30 am (UTC)

He paused, considering.

"Before I first came to Milliways, a forest was just a forest. Nothing else. Just saw trees."

"I got lost in the forest once too. I see both, and I don't think I'd get lost this time."

A subtle jolt to his senses, but this wasn't due to visions. It related to more ordinary senses as he blinked and then glanced at the approaching beings. It was a sight, even to someone now familiar with the strangeness of the bar.

"...Thank you, your majesty," he finally said.

Felt like he was still in a vision or a dream as he dismounted. He quietly took her hand to be lead along inside.

Johnny sat down near her, "Something light perhaps, please."

But as his hand reached for a glass of wine, he paused, unsure. Unsure of what he was seeing. Unsure what was going on.

"I don't know, might be nothing. Or another clue. I couldn't really tell."

(ooc: *curses LJ for losing the notif* Sorry for the extreme lateness and would love to continue to a finish if you still want to)

"Not sure if I seeing something more, or just shadows. Something about time." He reached for the wine again but did not drink yet.
