Lumi Skarsgård





Lumi had moved in to a rather nice building. Could she afford it? Far from it but she had been lucky. Right before her trip to the US she had been looking for apartments in New York City. She had heard that the city was expensive, but she had not expected the level of rents that actually were in the city. Plus, she kind of despised the idea of having to live on her own in a city in which she has no one in.

After she had informed her friends that she would be moving to the US, they were all shocked. They tried talking sense in to the girl, telling her that she would be much better staying in Sweden. Why should she throw away everything for a whim? They kept how long she was going to stay and Lumi just let them know that she’d inform them when she was coming back – if she was coming back. After her farmor had died there was very little in Sweden. Sure, she loved Stockholm and her friends, but life goes on. She felt the pull of New York City and she was on a mission. So, one night as she browsed different listings she stumbled upon a roommate ad and immediately grabbed it.

Now, she was in the city and boy was she glad she had found this place. The whole city was so grey and bleak, she had a constant feeling of choking. Like this heavy weight on her chest. There was none of the familiarity she was used to in Sweden. Stockholm was filled with trees, parks and other botanical installations which made the city bearable, but New York City was so far from that. It was incredible how people could live this way.

After arriving to her new apartment, it had been void of all plants. Her roommate was quick to inform her that they killed every plant they’d ever had. Well, Lumi was quick to change that. She went out to buy a lot of pots and soil. Once, she had been alone she had created a small oasis of different plants in the apartment. During her exploration she had found that the roof of the apartments had empty crate gardens that she simply assumed were free to use for the residents of the building. So, this is where she escaped most days.

Within the first week of staying in New York, she had completely changed the roof of the building. It was now filled with different edible plants and flowers. It reminded her of home. Lumi enjoyed tending the garden and she hardly used her powers for anything but creating the saplings for the specific plants she wanted but from there she let nature take its course. The plants tended to survive a lot better when she supported them naturally instead of only using her powers – they got too dependant on her.

That day was no different. Lumi had nowhere to go so she was getting her daily nature therapy by spending the morning hours pruning and tending the garden. Planting some seeds, she had found in the store for flowers she had never encountered before. The girl hummed to herself as she was working. She hadn’t met a lot of people from her apartment building but she figured someone might come along since the weather was just perfect that day.

He had been hearing talk of the new garden on the roof of the apartment building that he lived in and Thom’s curiosity eventually got the best of him, he realized, as he walked up the short flight of stairs that would lead him to the roof access point.

Things had gotten almost mundane at this point, which was a bit of a surprise seeing who he worked for and who he chose to befriend. Working for an organization that actively wanted to eradicate or capture people like his friend Sebastian… it was not easy. But true to his word, he hadn’t told a single soul.

Stepping out onto the roof, Thom was greeted with the smell of greenery and the warm sun on his face.

As Lumi was leaned over the large garden box, tending to the large ferns and winding tomato vines. She liked having multitude of plants with each other. It made things aesthetically pleasing even if it sometimes made things a bit hard to take care of. Some plants just didn’t behave well with others around them. Sure, she could have googled these things and learnt that way – but she preferred to just try things out. The only thing she truly focused on was learning about the different types of plants and their possible uses and effects on humans.

As she kept humming, the door to the roof opened and she turned her head slightly to see if someone had come to the roof. The girl visibly perked up as she saw the young man who had found his way there. A bright smile spread on her lips as she brushed her hands clean. People weren’t usually big fans of dirt. That day the girl was wearing a simple flower crown on her silver curls. The crown had young, small bright green fern leaves that rested on the sides of the crown, the main attraction was her choice were 3 African Daisies, from which one of the was visibly larger than the other two who supported the crown jewel of flowers on the side of head. The white petals with bring pink middle and soft tints of yellow looked quite beautiful against the soft hue of her hair. The crown had some small, white anemones and baby’s breath dotted along bringing some balance with the flashy daisies.

“Oh hej”, the girl greeted the man happily walking up to meet him halfway. “I’m not sure how these things are done here usually, but I’m Lumi and I’m new here, nice to meet you”, she continued with a chuckle offering her hand to the man. She was far from shy and figured the best way was simply to put herself out there. Her words were soft and rounded, showing that she wasn’t a native speaker. Sure, she had the pronunciation down, but her mother tongues weighed in turning her words softer leaving out some of the harshness of certain consonants that were native to the English language.

Thom stared around the rooftop at all the greenery. This was certainly not how it had been the last time he had bothered to come up here, and talk hadn’t started but a month ago. Could plants truly grow this quickly. He supposed that they could have been brought in this size but… he sighed. He was overthinking this.

A woman with grey hair walked towards him and he thought it odd because traditionally only older women had grey hair but this woman looked closer to his age than to the golden age. “Thom,” he said back when she introduced herself as Lumi, stating that she was new to the building. She said that it was nice to meet him. Was it? He supposed so. “Pleasure,” he said in return. “Where are you from?”

Lumi couldn’t help but notice the man’s eyes wandering around the small oasis she had created on the rooftop with such limited time. She felt like she should probably explain how she managed to do it, but it might come off suspicious if she suddenly started babbling about her green thumb and how she bought saplings and full-grown plants (not true, well partly true).

Before the girl could make up her mind, the man introduced himself as Thom but if she were to be asked how to write down his name she would not have been sure. “Thom, that’s an interesting name”, the girl said with genuine amazement in her voice. The man didn’t really seem to speak too much but that was fine. Lumi was well known for her ability to hold a conversation all by herself. She didn’t feel awkward talking for the both of them. If he didn’t want to continue the conversation he could simply just leave. “Well, that’s an interesting question. I was born in Finland, but my parents were Swedish and Russian. Also, I moved to Sweden some time back so, you could say Finland, Sweden and Russia? Does that make sense?”, the girl said with a delightful laugh as she shook her silver locks. Explaining her origins was always an interesting topic. She had a Finnish name and she had been born in Finland but neither of her parents were native to the country. She had never really thought of herself as native to just one country, both her parents had brought their own cultures so heavily in to her everyday life that it just made sense that she was from three different countries.

The woman, Lumi, said that his name was rather interesting. “Is it?” he mused to himself, mostly. He did not share in the woman’s thoughts, that his name was interesting. If anything, it was one of the more common names that he could have been given, similar to John.

Lumi explained her rather intricate heritage and Thom just nodded. “Normally, people would just say ‘Finland’ and leave out the rest,” he said. She had even said it herself, that she was new here and wasn’t sure how things really went as far as introductions and such.

“For example, I’m from Britain,” he supplied. “It doesn’t matter where my parents are from.”
