Well. Weirder shit had happened.
After picking Michel up, Michael had world hopped them back to Earth. He didn't take them to any of the large cities - it would be all to easy for something to go wrong and for him to get caught - but instead took him to the same place Nena had dragged him shopping in California. It had seemed safe enough.
Michael pushed his way into the mall, figuring Michel wouldn't be too far behind]
How long has it been since you were on Earth?
