Charlie steps through into the second-floor corridor and stands aside, holding the door wide for Olivia to follow her. The air on the other side is dry and cool, with the slight brittle chill that only comes with air conditioning.

"Welcome to Taos," Charlie says, lightly.

Olivia isn't sure if the slight tingle as she crosses the threshold is psychosomatic, or whether the Cortexiphan -- even without being activated -- has reacted to the change in universes. The goosebumps it raises up fade as fast as they come; she glances down the corridor, then back to Charlie.

"Your workplace?" she asks.

She slows as they begin to pass the window, then stops for a moment.

Even with all of the traveling she's done -- inside her own universe, and outside of it -- years in a city make the landscape seem too large. Her eyes lift to the mountains; aside from the scatter of buildings, it's the only major point of interruption.

It doesn't feel wrong, but it does feel strange.

She touches light fingers to the windowsill, then glances back to Charlie as she moves on.

She shakes her head, smiling a little. "First time," she says. "Most of my work stays east of the Mississippi lately."

Olivia keeps pace with her slow progress downstairs, not wanting to rush ahead or fall behind.

"I can see why," she says, tipping her head back the way they came. "It's...a little strange, but it's not a bad kind of strange."

"Like buildings, or other people?"

Compared to the New England winter Olivia's been enduring, that sunlight is blissfully warm. Unconsciously, she tilts her head back an inch, soaking it in.

"It's nicer than a cabin in the woods," she murmurs, half to herself.

"We visited another one of the Cortexiphan kids recently," she says. A breeze stirs her hair; Olivia brushes it aside, absently. "A telepath. He had to live in a cabin to keep from hearing everyone's thoughts at once."

"About as well as you could expect," sighs Olivia. "He's...coping."

Some days, that seems like all the Cortexiphan kids can do: cope.

"A few," says Olivia as she falls in step beside her. "Not in very much detail, though."

Which doesn't surprise her; privacy concerns, and all.

"I can imagine," she murmurs, and offers a polite nod to the driver. "Hello."

Olivia, trained to pay attention to the smallest details, catches the look. Swiftly, she hides the frown that threatens to surface.

Instead, she opens the passenger side door and settles into the car.

They shouldn't have too far to go, Olivia thinks. The entire complex is pretty close to no and where already.

But she quirks a smile as she glances at Charlie, then turns her attention to the window to take in the dusty landscape.

Hopefully, the animals will keep clear in case things get out of control.

Things won't. Olivia has to hope they won't. But...that's why they're this far from the rest of the complex, isn't it.

She steps from the car and shields her eyes against the sun, casting an assessing look over the spot.
