After certain revelations about the Mysterious Benefactor(....or well, Benefactors, plural, Jane and John supposed) had came to light, the pair weren't entirely sure what they were to do. Would they just live in The Void now? John had found some rather interesting places while out there and if it was absolutely necessary then perhaps they could brave the presence of dreaded hardware stores. But they shuddered at the thought and would really rather find Anywhere Else.
"Hey! My buddy Albert has a park, maybe he'll let us stay there for a while"
"I'm not sure a park is the best place to stay, John, I mean, the benches always have those handbars in them so you can't lay down"
"Not that kind of park silly! A theme park! Gniyned park to be precise. We could probably stay on rides long enough to fall asleep, maybe he even has an office we can borrow?"
"Need park? Why does that sound familiar..."
"Deja vu! Anyway, we should get going before the turkey legs run out."
So it was settled, Gniyned park was where they would stay for a bit.
When they got to the park it was just as bustling as ever. People milling around, though it was hard to focus on what any individual looked like, and staff smiling and gesturing with intricate hand signals. There were even fuzzy meetable characters in photo op stations, staring blankly into the cameras with unwavering goofy smiles.
John couldn't see Albert around, but he was always somewhere, maybe they could find him later.
"We should go on the spinning teacups! I had hours of fun on them earlier, my buddy Harv might even still be there"
The feelings of, deja vu, apparently, persisted for Jane. Harv...now that felt familiar too....
No. Harvey. She was thinking of Harvey from one of her letteres. Just a common name.
They arrived to the cups to find that there was indeed someone sat in one, gently spinning round. It looked like he had zoned out hours ago.
"HARV! You're still here! C'mon Jane."
John hopped into the same teacup as Harv and Jane followed suit.
"So Jane, this is Harv, Harv this-"
Harv snapped out of his nothingness watching, looking confused for a second before remembering where zig is.
"Jane Doe? Lovely to meet you, I'm Worm."
He held out zeigs hand for a handshake but Jane decided not to take it. She supposed 'Worm' was a new name at least.
"So, you know your current responsibilities then?" Worm asked the two Benefactors.
They looked to each other, not entirely sure at what Worm was getting at.
"Right then, I'm supposed to be interviewing G̴̪͍̊͑̅̎͌̏̄̔́̂̅̈́̓̚͠͠e̷̢̛̘̹̥̞̼̰̣̞̹̩̋́̄̈̽̆͋́́̀͌͛̕̕͠ȍ̵̫͎̼͉͙̜͔͐̇̓̀͛̃̒̅͘͜r̷̢̛̫̠̭̳̯̮̞̦̙̟͚̜̩̝͍̝̫̣̗̜̗͓͇̖̆̏̋͒̇g̵̢͍͈̜̞̹̤̲̟̙̙̤̩̩̪̱̪͇͕̖̰͕̘͍̺̓͜ͅe̴̡͉̪̞̹̤̗̤̯̔̋̆̆͐̓͒ ̸̼̺̳̙͙̘̊̕̚P̷̧̛̬̫̩̝͔͈̰͔̣̟̻͇̮̠͈̤͇̗̫̦͔͙̅̅́̀͛̍͊̌͆̌̽̆̽͋͝͝͝͝͠l̶̨̤̙̠̼̖̩̣̞̙͕̹̇̾̀̔͋̇̈͌̂̿̿̒̄͒̿͐̅̂̾̾̋̔̾̓̈͠a̴̝͍̞͙̣̠͖͈̮͔̩̜͛͆̎̀̉̎͗̄̍͛͋̚̚̕̕ͅn̴̡̤͔̙̳̮͚͍̘͍̙͈̊͗̉̊̈́̑̈́ͅk̵̡̬̠̥̥̹̰̺̝͔͐̀͋̀̐̈͂͝͠ͅ and A̴̡̗̜̙͉͂̏͋͗͑l̵̢̬̖̙̟͉̯̰̥͓̭̱̯̋̌͗͂e̶̥̟̺̹̤̳̣̖͓̟̤͔̬̗̮̅͛̀͑̎͗̇͊ͅx̵̝̖̣̹̙͚̰̰̀͊̏̏̉͝͝͠ ̷̡̨̨̧̦̹̻͍̖̤̘͖̟͉̥͉͉̩̥̖̗̥̌̓͆̏̐͒̈̓̌̋́͌̌͒́̋́̓̆̚͝͠V̷̧̢̩̞͔̗͎̘̭̬͙͇̱͍̮̻͛̒̋͌͊̃̑͋ǐ̵̯̼͔̇́̃̾̐̏̓͠ţ̶͚͖̤͎̙̺̪̝̯͔̲̜̮̙̭̬͈͈̤̞̩̖͙͐͗̄͌͒͐͗͛̉̉̉͊͋̆̕̚͜͠͝ȁ̸̛̪̬̳̇̋͗̈́̾͗̌͒̉̒̕͝ļ̶̢̡̡̛͎̩͍͚̦̦̘̫͉̫̤̫̯̜͐̾́̎̉́̀͆ę̷̨̢̢̟̣͍͙̲͙̱͚͎̱̓͆͂̈́͜͜͝͝ about, well, that's above your pay grade.

In ir hand was a folded note with a symbol in the corner that looked like an envelope with a tiny skull on it.
"Do. Not. Open. It. It will be bad for you." zig looked at John "this isn't a joke. And if you do open it.....ignore the fact that you did. Never mention it. Like when you got thst note on the first letters. Got it?"
John held up an OK hand sign "capeesh"
"...Yeah. Ok why should we listen to you?"
Worm shrugged "Why not."
A week later, when John and Jane Doe would normally get their letters. They got nothing. Nothing to send out in their new job either. All they had was Worm's note. And they'd finally found the mail box for ° Null Street.
