"May I ask why you're heading to Innsmouth?" the bus driver asked. "We don't get many travelers out this way."

"An old friend wrote to me," said Nicole.  "I haven't seen her in years; it'll be good to lay eyes on her again."

...suspicious.  Innsmouth had a reputation.

"There is a diner on main street near the bus station that serves good fish," the bus driver said as he started the bus and began to drive. "Looks like you're my only passenger."

"Well, I'll try not to be too much trouble," said Nicole.  Everything about this smelled like fish... still, there was no actual hostility so far.  Perhaps it would be fine.

Perhaps.

"Well, I don't mind it," said Nicole.  "Although there can be too much... Is Innsmouth prone to heavy rain?"

"It can be," the bus driver said. "But it shouldn't be a problem. If you don't have an umbrella you go to Mike's Hardware on the corner of main street and say Gus sent ya and he'll get ya one."

"I'll be sure to," said Nicole.  "Thank you for that."

...she was fairly sure she'd just tripped over some secret code.  Maybe it was for booze.  That would be all right.

"I wasn't born there, but I went abroad for a few years for my studies," Nicole said.  You really had to go to the source for certain properly ancient books of mystical lore.

"Ah, I don't see why that matters. I went over there for the Great War and it was one hell of a mess," the bus driver said.

"Well, there are things in Europe I can't find over here," said Nicole.  "But the War really did a lot of damage, didn't it?  Such a tragedy."

She doubted this strongly, but... manners.
