JOSH
After his interrogation from the strange, young agents, Josh had headed out into the Outskirts, hoping to find some answers if he wandered out far enough. A radio tower perhaps, or more of the black tall structures, something that might give him some bearings or a better answer about the world he was in.

Well, it's either an alternate dimension, another planet or Europe.

Having walked for at least an hour, he was no closer to finding any answers. He'd seen a few fields, the crops in which were both recognisable yet somehow just off; had studied the stone that made up the few walls that dotted across the region - not any kind he was familiar with. Everything was just not quite right, just off; his alternate dimension theory was beginning to feel more and more accurate.

Finally deciding he was losing time walking he could be spending thinking, gathering supplies, he sat on one of the unrecognisable walls and pulled the polaroid photo out of his pocket again, began to once more study it. The development had to be complete by now, but it still seemed washed out and foggy, not because of bad film, Josh suspected - because the phenomenon it captured was not seeable by human eyes or lenses.

NATE
Being back in the Hollowed Grounds was strange, after Torchline. Drab, washed out. Boring, really. Nate was wandering, trying to avoid anywhere populated for a bit before he actually settled in again. The fields were maybe they most boring part of the grounds, but had the advantage of being sparsely populated, and marked out enough that he couldn’t wander into somewhere he wasn’t wanted.

Of course though, Nate had barely made it anywhere, and there was a person, intruding on his brooding. Normally, he would brush past without a word, he planned on brushing past without a word. Then he noticed the scrap of paper clutched in the strangers hand.

”Holy shit.” He stopped, leaning down, noticing for the first time the surprisingly modern clothes the man wore. ”Is that a polaroid?
to be honest, I’m full of shit

Just as Nate was determined to ignore Josh in favour of his brooding, Josh was happy to ignore Nate in favour of studying his photo; he didn't need to talk to every person here, after all. Any good investigation needed down periods, times when you digested the information you had received thus far. Besides, he was wondering if the ones he'd met so far were paid actors, and was beginning to get somewhat bitter about humouring them.

That was, until Nate asked his question. Josh stared with wide eyes, slowly lowering the polaroid down and looking over the man, whom he could have sworn had a Jersey accent. "Yes. ...Explain to me how you know that." He asked slowly, carefully, not wanting to reveal his immediate suspicion too easily.

Nate couldn't help but lean back a bit, finding the strangers stare a little too intense for his liking. He tried to force a grin onto his face, tried to pull together his usual confidence. "You could try asking nicely y'know." The words came out a little rougher than he wanted, but Nate chalked it up to lingering discomfort. Really, the only reason he hadn't walked off was because he was more curious about the polaroid than he was uncomfortable. For now.

"They had them where I came from, originally." Nate craned, trying to catch a glimpse of what the picture was of, hoping, somewhere deep inside, to see something familiar. "How'd you get one?"

As far as Josh was concerned, he had asked nicely; far more politely than he usually demanded information from strangers. This being the case, he just raised his eyebrows at Nate's words, thinking him a pretty sensitive person.

He turned the photo to let Nate see it. It seemed the people here were aware of portals, knew he knew as well, so there wasn't any danger in showing it. Of course, it was not a very interesting or well-developed image, faint lines of street lamps and trash in a yard almost entire blown out by the bright white light in the centre. "I took it. With my camera. The camera did not come with me." Josh frowned at this, more emotion than he usually showed - the lack of his polaroid to record the things around him was grating.

"Where did you come from? Did you come here through a portal too? You sound American." Josh's own voice was carefully removed from any particular accent most of the time, having trained himself to speak as plainly as he could.
