The three of you are ready to go. How do you want to Ascend? Find a Tether? Try to do it directly?
"So Penny, how many folks have 'ears to hear' 'round here?" Rudy asks. "Hate to leave a sonic boom in anyone's ears if we all take off together."

Penny responds, "Usually, not a lot, but I have to admit that being visited by Triads so often has made me very timid. You never know when they're lurking about just ready to pointedly question you about why you're making so much noise in the Symphony."

"Good point," Rudy agrees. She unrolls and re-rolls the sleeves of her work shirt, positioning them just right for the heat of the day. Her heart is urging her to go, go, go straight upward as fast as she can, but she knows that would be letting her Lady down and maybe make a longer road for everyone.

"Time to hit the stairs then. Know any good ways up? Somewhere close, where folks aren't so nosy?" The smile, bright as a sunflower emerges again. "I'd take you back to the Park with me, but three on a bike's a lot, even for me."

She turns to a sharp tweeting nearby. "Four on a bike," she corrects herself to Soma's indignant bird. "Sorry 'bout that."

"I do have my own bike," Penny says, with a small laugh. "But, no need to head all the way back down to San Fran. There's a Trade tether that I hang out at sometimes over near the site of the rail depot where this town was founded in the first place. How about we use that?"

Soma smiles

"I would love to accompany you. I'm sure Avaria wouldn't mind vising friends too."

"Sounds like a plan." Rudy mounts her bike and motions for Soma and her little friend to join. "Grab your wheels and I'll race you down there!"

It sounds cockier than it is. No, Rudy can't pin down a Tether supernaturally ... but "the rail depot where this town was founded" is just enough description for an Ofanite to start rolling. And what could look more natural than two Wheels riding heaven-for-leather?

"I can do that," Baz replies, assuming he can hear it.

Soma and Rudy

Somasti and Avaria hop on Rudy's bike. Rudy takes off like the wind, even faster than before, and Somasti may even begin to fear for her vessel.

Alas, Rudy's instincts are slightly off, and while she does arrive at the site of the historic depot, Penny has managed to arrive ahead of them, and indeed is leaning on her bike adopting a nonchalant "I was wondering when you might get here" sort of attitude... albeit one marred by a mischeveous smile.

[I rolled a 10 for Rudy's resonance roll, so she didn't quite suss out the location of the Tether.]

[I hope you will forgive me if I leave the Tether a bit abstract for now; I don't want to overcommit on its nature at the moment! If it becomes important later, I'll have more information about what it looks like, who is there, and it's celestial characteristics.]

At the tether, you hear the low level of Disturbance in the Symphony that's always going on around a Tether (at least one that doesn't have a feature that masks that noise). So, when you each blow two points of Essence and assume Celestial form, nobody nearby is likely to think too terribly much about it. You all end up in Heaven. You know immediately that you're in Commerce Park; the hustle and bustle of angelic commerce, trade, haggling, and generally having a good time is hard to mistake.

Let me know how you proceed.

Let's assume he can.

Do you three want to do anything else, or shall we assume that you pile into Baz's car and head for Monterey Bay?

Rudy thrills at the feel of being in Heaven again. The spinning fire of her celestial form looks more like a wreath, casting off small blossoms of flame with every spin. And while it's the Glade and the Party Lawn that are truly home, Marc's bazaar comes close; the constant motion and energy are an Ofanite's dream.

It's not a pleasure call, of course. Still, she can't help but luxuriate in the feel of being close to the Source again, or at least, in a place where the barriers are no thicker than veils. She looks to Penny, hoping to see a little more ease in her friend's form.

"It's good to be back, isn't it?" she says, her wheels brushing against Penny's for a moment, then catching Soma and her friend as they complete the circuit.

"Holding hands" with each of them, the green of her wheels turns a little darker in pleasure, an Ofanite's smile. "Well," she tells Penny, "shall we go see your friends?" Since Angelic holds nothing back, the phrase also carries undertones of and do the job we all came here to do, and maybe put all of our minds at ease.
