About the page...
Grace and Simon have their morning tea.
The two characters shown in the smaller panels are Steve Green and Angus MacAleister, who have not yet appeared. As such is the case, I have not made 3D models for them, thus I had to draw them 'from scratch'. And I think it shows.
At any rate, Steve, at the top, is waiting in an airport. Angus is staring at a dubious product while taking care of a little shopping.
The story thus far...
Grace and Simon, two teenage tearaways, have discovered a passage to Reality in the basement of The tré (a tiny theatre in their miniscule town of Otterstow). Unfortunately, they have accidentally trapped themselves and cannot return, although they do not seem to be in any hurry to do so.
Ignatius (the mayor of Otterstow) suspects this is the case and has enlisted the aid of the parents; Slide, Sandra, Pete and Gina. None of the adults have figured out how to open the passage, which seems to involve a mysterious box that they cannot open.
What's going on right now:
Grace and Simon are starting their day, after having spent the night in the Rialto, which is the theatre on the Reality side.

"Oh, lovely. Could use a cuppa 'bout now."
There was a hob nearby and it took them only a moment to figure out how it worked and to locate the kettle and the teapot, although it took them a little longer to clean the latter.
After it had brewed, they cautiously sipped the result.
"Not bad, actually," Simon remarked.
"A little weak, if you ask me," Grace answered.
"Well, can't complain. We're basically stealing it anyway, aren't we," Simon pointed out.
After they finished their breakfast, the two of them began to explore more of the neglected old theatre.
"Someone must come here occasionally," Simon conjectured. "Otherwise, there'd be no food, nor hot water or anything of that nature."
"Let's hope they don't surprise us with a visit in the next week," Grace mentioned.
