Somehow Bruce Wayne and I have found ourselves in 1985. We don't know what to do. We have no idea if our daughter Yvie is here. We have no idea if her biological mother Moth Lady is here. And we certainly have no idea if the vile evil Barbarocious is here. I'm not a betting woman, but if I was, I would guess that they are all here, somewhere. All I know is that we are in some town called Hawkins. In Indiana of all places. They also had brand new She-Ra toys in this shop we just walked out of. My brain and heart are just feeling all types of ways right now.
Bruce Wayne: M, I know. We need to be calm. We will figure this out.
Bruce Wayne: Damn. Just be cool M.
Miss M: (focuses on breathing) I do not have a cool bone in my body...
Miss M: Crap. He did say that. And he's not my husband. It's complicated.
Bruce Wayne: M, you're talking too much.
Hopper: Joyce, be careful what you say.
Joyce: Oh my.
Hopper: Well all right. We're gonna need it.
Elsewhere, in the woods.
Dustin: Guys, we've done this before. Let's just take her back to your house Mike. Your parents are out of town and Nancy is older and smarter. She'll know what to do. Plus Max is waiting on us.
Eleven: Yes. Trust me.
Moments later at Mike's house.
Max: I don't think so. We were just going to play DnD but then they all left in a hurry.
Max: Yeah. I still don't know why they wanted me to stay behind. Especially Lucas.
Nancy: Mike! What is this?
Mike: I don't know.
Nancy: You're sure she is alive?
Max: Is this why you all left?
Max: (sighs to herself) I could have joined you.
Dustin: Is that really a good idea? I think we've all been enjoying a nice ride of normal lately. I've also got summer camp soon and I really don't want to mess that up.
Eleven: This feels different. I want to protect her.
Mike: No. Not at all.
Will: Maybe she is from the Upside Down.
Dustin: Why do you look like that?
Will: Are you from the Upside Down?
Yvie: I don't know anything. The lady dressed in black came for me. I got angry and turned into this. My skin looks like a purple Crayola.
Will: We have to survive the night first.
Nancy: Ok good. I'm Nancy by the way. And we are all friends here. No one is going to hurt you. Especially from this lady dressed in black.
Eleven: I believe you. Call my dad Nancy, I hope to find him at home. He will help us.
Across town at Joyce's house.
Miss M: I know. But you must understand why it is so important for us to get to her. I feel like evil has followed us, and if Barbarocious gets to her... Yvie's been tortured enough.
Joyce: It's ok. Let them go. There's other things we can do.
Moments pass by as Will walks in.
Will: (shrugs) It was pretty slow. Sorry I came home late, we lost track of time. Who is this?
Will: (pauses for a second, uncertain if he can trust M) Never mind. I'll tell you later.
Miss M: He seems like a sweet kid.
Miss M: I can only imagine. I've been through the After Life and back. I just hope I am able to reunite with my daughter. I lost her once, I can't lose her again.
Back at Mike's house.
Nancy: No answer. I'll keep calling.
Mike: Don't worry. When El gets home she'll see him and let him know.
Suddenly they jump as Moth Lady approaches!
Moth Lady: Yvie! I've been looking everywhere for you. Come on.
Mike: Yvie, is this your mom?
Nancy: I am not going to let anything happen to Yvie.
Mike grabs his walkie talkie and they are out.
Bruce Wayne: We barely even looked there. I am telling you, we could have found a way. Some sort of way. Like, maybe flash lights?
Bruce Wayne: What are you talking about? Shouldn't that mean we need to be there?
To be continued!
