    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    Sandra noticed how much smoke Vivian was putting out. And she took that personally.

    Pulling out one of the several packs she purchased from the old man, she lit one up. "So," she said quietly, "where are you guys from?"

    Reaching over to a window, Jinny tries to open it to let some fresh air into the vehicle.

    " Originally Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine, but I moved to Fair Lawn, New Jersey here in this country in 2042," Boris said.

    Despite feelings of deja vu from the earlier tour bus ride, the group was eventually convinced and found all of them capable of fitting in that one singular vehicle; then again, it would have been stranger had it been unable to due to its absurd length.

    "It feels good to be on schedule," Their host would say, seated in the passenger cabin alongside them, his eyes fixed on his pocket watch, "Mr. Joestar would be proud."

    Back on the road again, but would this trip be uneventful for once?
    "Clearly, since he never had the time for any of us...." Lucy mused to herself, hands folded protectively over her case, which she used has a head rest, while she sat in the far corner window seat. "....or our mothers...." Lucy paused, then sighed. "Forgive me...I only have my example to work off and for all I know some of you had a wonderful relationship with him."

    The girl seemed clearly uncomfortable to be in such closed quarters, weather because of the people or the cramped conditions. It only started getting worse then people started lighting up, causing her to start coughing, quietly at first but more distressingly violent as time went on.

    "Could.....you please do that when we're not in a box....*cough*...*cough*...."

    Sandra sighed and crossed one leg over the other. "Alright, alright." She snuffed the cigarette out with the heel of her boot, then flicked it out the window. "Es tut mir leid," she muttered.

    Vivian sighed heavily, but didn't stop smoking. Instead, it simply faded away until it seemed like she was smoking one of those old-fashioned electronic cigarettes.

    With the air somewhat more breathable, Jinny sat back in her seat, "It's going to be tricky finishing my work with only one arm." She then looked around, "Once I get back home to New Jersey I might as well take a week off."

    " So you're from New Jersey, What place in New Jersey?" Boris said.

    "Fort Lee, not too far from the GW Bridge and Koreatown." Jinny thought for a moment, "I heard you say you're living in Fair Lawn? Makes sense. It's the kind of town that attracts a lot of people from Europe and Asia. I go there myself on occasion to shop at one of the Asian specialty food markets. It's easier than going into Manhattan and just as good. There are also have some interesting East European Food markets and resturants in the area from what I've seen."

    " Yep that's corrected, and Fair Lawn also has a great bowling alley," Boris said.

    Cattail Grill! A Taste of Driftwood!

    That was written in the brown-green decal lettering on the slim, bullet-shaped thermos Suzie clutched between her pale fingers. The lid had been screwed off, and the bitter, dark French roast steamed into the air. Thirty-five to carry a proper cuppa...might've been fleeced for the memories...

    Her slim knees pressed together behind the leather of her boots, and as she took another sip, it was as if the coffee swam behind her eyes and pricked her brain. Yet another all-too narrow cab of another far-too cramped motor vehicle. She'd arrived late, and thus found herself affixed in the middle like a spinster on the park bench. The next leg of their journey had been set...of course, she thought the same hours ago. With the Speedwagon entourage keeping an eye on this, however, Debra and their new host seemed to agree on the destination at least, if not each other.

    Still, ever since she and Lucy had left Weathermaker and his family to fend for themselves - they hadn't found Sergeant Starr for that matter, either - his words had stuck in her mind.

    The OSS...Joestar...

    "...Hironobu-san?" That was the proper title, wasn't it, respectful but at a distance? "Something's been troubling me. You say Johannes Joestar, he predicted all this, like? And he'd be...proud?"

    Another short sip passed through her dark lips before she continued.

    "It's...it's not exactly a lot of good we've done, innit? On the way in, I mean."

    Sitting right between her three newly-minted half sisters, after Suzie's question she fell silent.

    Truthfully, she hadn't quite been so affected by the cigarette haze; it had rather reminded her of the chaos backstage on far too many productions with as many primadonnas. Always about 'me', 'mine first,' tittering to-and-fro gibbering lines when they'd been called to the makeup chair ages ago. As well as they knew the part, they hadn't a clue how to look it, that depended on a choice many overlooked others. It used to make her heart sink, knowing they had to be on in a few, feeling their judgment of a certain symmetry they could not quite grasp because, truly, who could see past their own face without the help of another? It always felt so fake when the vanity thawed briefly to thanks.

    Still, it'd be hasty to presume the worst of intentions. It'd be best to smooth things along.

    Leaning foward, she pressed a finger to a button on the limousine roof, and the sunroof shot open a crack.

    "Bromley, Kent," she replied to Sandra, before her expression stiffened in silence, as if she'd suddenly realized she'd said something improper.

    "Uhm...England, East of London, yeah?"

    "I cannot say if Mr. Joestar had predicted every single action you all have taken," Hironobu replied, "He only relayed the cliff notes up to a certain point. As for his pride, perhaps I said that too loosely."

    Pondering a moment, the teenager shifted in his seat before continuing, "Perhaps I should have said that he would have been proud of all of you for enduring everything up to this point. The fact that several of you have awakened your stands already speaks volumes."

    OOC: Yun, is that conversation happening in the car or before they headed out?

    OOC: My apologies, should have clarified, but it is in the vehicle.
