Murmuring to yourself, in a volume she can hear, you say "... wherever we were heading to, we can't anymore...". Some moments of silence pass as both realize they should take some time until the rain stops and their clothes dry.

Almost in a perfect synchronicity, one look up to eachother and say "Why don't we take a cup of coffee?". A mutual smile is shared, as they proceed to a nearby café.

Polaris: "And what is a guitar doing in the middle of an asteroïd anyway?"
sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.
