Squeezing in through a door held open just enough to let in all the rain, she let out an exasperated sigh.
The young man in the driver's seat shouted over the rain drumming into the ship's side "Sparrow, is it STILL RAINING?"
The teen had to peel her hood off. "Funny, next time you're going out there."

At this point the object will be able to interact with the rest of the world as
