Julia recognized the man right away.
I saw you the other day from an Airship. You were riding a flying machine and around you I saw, Julia said after a moment of indecision, fish, schools of fish.

He placed the metal apron on a hook behind the door that led to the veranda, then removed the gloves and placed them on the table. The girls looked around but there were no chairs. As the man sat on the floor, Gaia and Julia did the same. Mark stood in the corner, resting his back on a protruding shelf.
