A Small Village in Lemnos
As the driver opens the door of the limo, you find yourself at the outskirts of a small town by the coast on a bright, clear day.

"It's so nice to be home," Kendra said.

"Cool," said Polly.  Home... that was an odd concept to her.  There were flashes of so, so many, mostly lost to her even before she'd lost those lives.

"...So, now what?"

Kendra leads you to a blue house by the dock. She knocks on the door and waits and waits. She knocks again. No answer.

"I wonder where she is," Kendra said.

Polly went first to the house Kendra's friend lived in.  Why not?  If she was going to be awkward, she might as well dive right in.  She tried for unlocked doors and windows first; actual breaking would be the next step.

"oookay, then," said Polly.  "I ought to introduce you to the other Shadow I know, back at school.  You could both have a lot of fun being mystifying at each other.  Anyway, let's go find Kendra."

You find Kendra waiting for you at the same house you left her at.

"Did you find them?" she asked as soon as she saw you.
