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 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."

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.
