“Oh, got some hot date I should know about?” Saul grinned. “What’s his name… address, social security number and known associates.” He laughed, nudging his elbow into his daughter’s ribs. “Or are you just getting too hip to hang out with the old man?” He chuckled softly. He liked spending time with his daughter well enough, it made him feel like maybe he wasn’t such a horrible person after all. Still he did need to get work at some point, and he didn’t really want to expose his daughter to that kind of violence… even if he was the one doing it. “Well whatever your plans for today, have breakfast with me and then I’ll let cha get to ‘em hmm?”

9:19-9:25am Local Time
Stern’s End- Digger’s Field Park-North End


Mabel smirked softly as she pulled her car into Digger’s Field parking lot. There weren’t too many others, but there was a rather well loaded, if slightly rusted, pickup truck sitting backed into the parking spot. The other members of the Church could be seen not far from the parking lot. It was clear they had already done quite a bit of work, beside the sidewalk along the edge of the blacktop were over a dozen freshly planted flowers, nothing fancy, just some yellow daffodils mixed in with some light daisies and inter-sprinkled poppies and chrysanthemums for color. They all stood out quite nicely against the dark freshly-tilled soil.

Jeffry, Theo, Jean and Mr. McKnight could all be seen attempting to uproot a rather stubborn, if dead, thorn bush. Jeffry and Theo both had pickaxes hooked into the bulk of the roots, pulling it up with a rather serious clump of earth, while Jean and Mr. McKnight labored to dig out the compacted soil from beneath it. Jeffry wasn’t wearing a shirt.

It looked like they had already dug up at least a half-dozen such bushes, laying the dead things out beside their holes while working in behind them Alex, Jenifer, Liz, Steve and Mary planted some new healthy lavender bushes, each at least a foot tall and at least as wide. Steve and Alex held the sizable, if stringy, plants up while Mary helped direct Liz and Jenifer in proper planting procedure, the three held trowels in one hand while Mary had a hose in hand, it ran back to a drinking fountain the group had commandeered to assist in their gardening. There were several sacks of soil laid out beside them, and the two or three bushes they had already planted looked quite happy sitting in the wet black earth.

“Ah, looks like the gang’s all here.” Mabel said happily, her car lurching to a stop as the front wheels tapped against the sidewalk, her parking break creaking angrily as she engaged it. “And it looks like they’ve done a good bit of work already. I knew I should’ve left early…” She huffed a bit, before leaning into her door and swinging the metal thing open with enough force, had anyone been standing behind it, they probably would’ve broken their nose. “Ah well, I bet they’ll be hunger.” She smirked to the starving little friendless orphaned abused burrowing hypothermic beggar child. “Let’s get them some cookies, hmm?” The old woman grinned, hopping out of her car before waddling around to the backseats, pulling on the door before leaning into pick out a couple trays of cookies.

Gotham City-Oracle's Nest


Barbara smirked, it was okay, Rhode couldn’t see her. “For your information Richard Occult is one of the most respect mystics in the world. Or at least he was back when he was active. He worked with Zatanna’s father, the previous Doctor Fate, the latest Doctor Fate, etcetera etcetera.” She waved a hand about despite the fact that Rhode couldn’t see her. “You get the point. Look you wanted an earth-bound mystic instructor; Occult’s one of the best, who isn’t busy with League business.” Of course he wasn’t busy with League business because the League didn’t want to deal with him, but that was beside the point and Rhode really didn’t need to know that.

“You need what? The Water & Power plant? Why, what’s Occult go you doing elemental manipulation training?”

On one hand, Occult was able to get her to feel magic for the very first time, but on the other, he was a perverse alcoholic who was relentlessly cracking innuendos as if he had a shot to get inside her pants. She couldn't see the drunk working along side Dr. Fate, or any other leaguers, Rhode pictured him kicking down a door with his pants half down, blurting some random garble at felons, with a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a colt in the other, as leaguers behind him cleaned up what mess he made. It was in those thoughts that Rhode remembered what she had pictured Occult to look like before she met him. 

"If this guy is as prestigious as you say he is, his results had better outway his prices."

Her strides were far apart, they were meant to keep her moving at a faster pace, partly to head over to whatever direction she needed to go, partly because she didn't have any idea where she would end up. 

"And no, not training, I wish it was training; this Occult.. This guy.. He wants me to take this wad of cash he gave me to the Water and Supply people to pay his bills for his office. Can't you just work the grid and hack into their computers so I can get onto my real training?"

She would admit it if you asked her, Rhode isn't good with following orders, she felt like her demeanor wasn't strong enough, and that she was being looked down upon. She hated that feeling. 

And she couldn't shake it.

"Well, if you'd prefer; I could always put you in contact with Detective Chimp and the Shadowpack." Or was it the Shadowpact? She was never sure which it was. Either way she was quiet sure that their leader was known as Detective Chimp, she’d heard Batman mention him as one of the only detectives he respected, well maybe no in so many words, Bruce was never much one for praising someone, but his meaning got through well enough after you adjusted to him. “Hang on.”

Barbara had a few minute left on her pizza, so she had time to wheel herself back to her computer. “Hub City Water & Power was it?” She brought up her map. “Looks like most of Hub’s utilities are routed out of the old coal power plant, big thing, smoke stacks, probably stinks like soot for miles, can’t miss it.”

"He's a slob, but since I'm here I might as well just deal with it. It's not that I hate him, but if he was on fire and I had water I would drink it."

He really did frustrate her, and Rhode had to hold back her anger when she was around him, it was like a splinter that she couldn't pick out.

"Old coal plan with smoke stacks?"

She felt a particular dryness coming from the east and as she was walking downtown she did smell the distinctness of coal and soot. Rhode wasn't feeling too good about this. Wondering how long she will last there, she rolled her right sleeve up to check her levels. She probably had to pick up some water just in case, looking around, Rhode had forgotten to take her backpack. Dammit, her wallet was in there. Wait.. she had the water and electricity money from Occult. He could spare her a few bucks.

"So, head eastward and I'll just run into it?"

“He can’t be that bad. He’s just an old soldier, like really old, some of the records I’ve found of him date back to the forties.” Old newspaper clippings had him as a member of something called ‘The All-Star Squadron’ back during the war. She assumed he’d used magic to stay young this long, mages could do that right? Barbara shrugged in her chair. Magic was; difficult to understand.

“You may need to head a little south, but it’s pretty much the biggest thing on the east side.” At least it looked that way on Oracle’s computer. “Big old building, large brick smoke stacks says here it was built, woah, long time ago. Still it shouldn’t be too hard to spot, those smoke stacks have to be at least ten stories tall.”

Rhode scoffed, shaking her head. "Or, maybe he just lost his touch." Her walk became more brisk, she felt like Oracle was trying to soften her own deliberate blow, like she didn't know how he was now, despite how his record was in the past. 

"Anyway, thanks for the help, Oracle. Keep in touch."

Rhode had retracted her hands in her pockets after she, walking down the streets, she observed the sun bleeding light through ominous clouds. She wasn't exactly sure of it was filth or rain. 

Stopping in front of a delicatessen, it had the strangest name, Rhode wasn't sure what to make of it. She stared at the sign for a little while, wondering if it was just some extremely odd land-walker lingo, before deciding to walk in "Ham for your thoughts?" 

It sounded trippy, but it seemed busy enough to be a good place to eat and possibly purchase some refill in case she wouldn't be able to breathe in the soot and ashes. 

She looked around her.

"Hello."

Misji had a feeling before they even arrived that when Mabel meant ‘Church’ she meant quite a few people. But the witch girl hadn’t expected these kinds of people. Young people.

She wasn’t distressed, far from it actually; she was excited and bopping about in her seat trying to get a view of the folks working out in the parks field, tilling and digging and rooting up problem plants. It was surreal for her, to see someone do such a thing and look so…Well sentient and lively.

The girl chewed at her bottom lip, staring through the glass windshield before turning around to watch Mabel walk about the car and open the back door. Misji turned around in the seat till she was facing Mabel, looking slightly frustrated as her nose scrunched up.

Esiasch looked between the open door and his mistress, before shrugging and crawling over the various lumps and obstacles that made up the cars’ interior to roll his fat rump out of the opened car door, passing by Mabel with a distinct 'huff' as he did so. The rat shook off his heavy body once he was out, giving a stretch and a yawn before waddling to the front of Mabel’s car and crawling up the bumper to sit on the hood. All for the sake of observing the various church folk.

He didn’t like the half-naked one already; he’d have to make sure no hormonal things happened.

Not that he didn’t trust Misji; it was just—

Well the boy had muscles, and girls were so easily bamboozled into surrendering their virtue by a few, well timed flexes of their biceps.


Misji, however, seemed even more vexed now that she was alone sitting in the car; she turned to the door pushed at it like she had when she figured out how to close it. Nothing happened.

She was doomed.

"PFfttt, What? No!" Darcy sputtered at her Saul, "I'm just hungry, sheeesh. You're putting me on the spot today." Darcy continued as she waved her arms around like some crazy person as she followed her dad. After a few seconds, she finally calmed down and chuckled herself. "But, you are pretty old. I have to admit." Darcy smirked as she stuck out her head and walked by his side, engulfed with her pride.

Coming across a suspicous guy, Victoria rose her eyebrow at the guy who's back faced her. Who's this guy, Aladdin or something? She referred seeing his odd get up. In sync the twins looked at each other with an odd look on their faces.
"So, sis. He looks a bit.."
"I don't expect any less. I've seen a man with tattoos all over his damnface. Probably a drug addict or something." Victoria responded as she hugged herself, eyes narrowed down at the guy who blocked their way. He didn't look that much older than her.

"Just don't try to butt heads with someone this early." Thomas commented as he carried his arms behind his neck.

Ignoring her brother's advice, she cleared her throat in a loud way to get his attention. "Hey, you're kinda blocking the way."

“Hey I’ve still got more than enough in me to knock the teeth out of any of these young punks.” Saul said proudly. “These thugs today have no respect for how it ought to be done. Back when I was their age we didn’t pick on girls, we had some dignity, some class. These days anyone with a wallet is fair game.” He obviously disapproved, and even just the thought of something trying to victimize his daughter had him shoving his fists in his pockets.

Brother Wound looked up, still rubbing at his right arm absentmindedly, nervously. He blinked. It was a girl. She was talking to him. He stared back for a second. What was he supposed to do in this situation? What did he want to do in this situation? He wanted to say something, to talk to her. “Uhm… oh, sorry.” That was lame, he wanted to say something better. Something suave, something daring and compelling, something that would make her want to talk to him. He wanted her to want to talk to him. “Hey uhm…” He rubbed at the back of his head. “Do you… Ya’know it’s cool if not… but would you like to get something to eat? With me…

He shifted his feet; wait a second there was someone else with her. It was a boy. Her boyfriend? He didn’t want her to have a boyfriend. “He can come to, I guess…” He didn’t want to hurt anyone, at the moment.

“Oh Hehe…” Mabel chuckled softly as she lifted a tray of cookies from the backseat. “Just lift the handle and give it a good push dearie, it can get stuck though so you may want to lean into it.” He car was old and the doors were in sore need of some attention, not that there were any mechanics in Hub who you trusted not to steal your hubcaps.

The old woman smiled and began her slight shuffling toward the groups tending to the plants of the dying park, offering Esiasch a light pat on the head as she passed the hood of her car, even pulling off the plastic wrap atop her tray of cookies, and offering the rat one, before heading out to the park in earnest.

Steve was the first to notice the shuffling old woman approaching. The pony-tail bearing man smiled and waved a hand over his head. “Hey Mrs. Smith, nice to see ya. We weren’t sure if you were coming.” He walked over to the shuffling old woman and beamed. “You bring us some of your famous baked goods?”

“Oh my yes.” Mabel smiled back to the filthy hippy. “I brought a couple of trays of cookies, and an extra pair of hands.” She nodded back to her car. “Well hurry up dearie, no sense in waiting around all day.”

Alex, Jen, Liz and Mary all sort of slowly stopped what they were doing to gather around Mabel and her cookie tray. Mary was kind enough to take the heavy platter from the older woman. The other girls Jen looked like she wasn’t sure if she should take the platter from Mary, but as Liz and Alex just took a cookie each she simply decided to go with the flow. Steve continued to beam, before looking back over his shoulder and giving a rather sharp whistle. “Hey dudes, Mrs. Smith brought cookies!” He called back to the others.




Friday September 1st

Downtown— Ham For Your Thoughts?


Marley Salazar finished off his sandwich in short order. It wasn’t bad, maybe a little bland, next time he’d ask for sweet onions or spicy sauce or something, but it was a good breakfast sandwich and it left him feeling full. The trio lingered for a moment, waiting for Tony Dechinko to finish his completely unpaid for meal. The mountain of a mobster snatched up a handful of napkins to dap at the corners of his mouth before taking the last few bites of his own meal and wiping his face off. “Ah, that hit the spot. Now let’s go grab that cake for dessert.” The large man licked his lips and smirked.

Marley rolled his eyes. “Sure, you said the cake place was up the street?” He sat up from his seat beside the door, and in doing so his girls each stood up from their own places. Karen had taken the seat across from him, while Alicia had returned to lingering by the door. The little scuffle with Dechinko had been brought to a swift resolution by the arrival of Tony’s order. It seem that the King Crab cared more about filling his belly than fighting someone half his size & age, particularly if they were technically on the same side and she happened to have a taser pointed at his crotch. No one really blamed him.

Tony reached a hand down between his legs and adjusted something in his pants before pulling his coat up around him. “Yeah it is right down the street like; I don’t know, maybe a block.” He gave a slight shrug and the four of them began their rounds. Tony lead the trio chest puffed up and head held high, Marley close behind him hands tucked in his coat pockets, Karen followed a few steps behind the young Salazar, busily messing with her PDA, while Alicia held the door open and brought up the rear.

The four of them nearly walked right into some chick trying to get into the deli. “Hey, watch where you’re walkin’.” Tony grunted brusquely, deliberately knocking his shoulders into the side of the woman as he walked past. He had to have at least a foot on her, and probably weight twice as much as the lithe redhead.

The witch child perked up and turned to fiddle with the door, figuring out the handles location before poking, prodding and tugging at it until the handle squeezed down under her palm and the sealed rim of the door peeled out before her.

Misji nearly fell out of the car, squeaking as the door fell open. She scrambled out once she was certain the door wouldn’t close on her, dusting herself off as she pointedly ignored Esiasch. Who was happily laughing at her around his mouth full of cookie.

”Very Graceful, Milady”

When the girl cast him a vicious glare he turned his head and went back to eating his cookie. Though he was diligent and kept an eye out on the church folk who had gotten closer in order to take some of the delicious treats from Mabel.

Misji dusted herself off, before closing the door gently (so much so the thing didn’t actually close) and walking about to the hood of the car. Her guts were all roiling and squirming as anxiety and nervousness overcame her previous exuberance. She had no idea what she would say, but darn it she would have to try.

And by try, it meant she was going to stop a few feet behind Mabel, tuck her hands into the front pockets of her dress and stare sheepishly down at her dirty boots.

"Uhm what?"Victoria cocked her head, his suggestion shocked her, but offended in her way. He's so..timid. She thought to herself as she rubbed her arm awkwardly. "Sorry, but-

"-Hey now." Thomas interupted between the two. "That'd be rude to reject him, Vicky." He smugly taunted his sister wrapping his arm around her shoulder.

"Thomas, i'm going to kill you." She whispered coldly to her brother, her face obviously pissed off.

"Awh come sis, he looks harmless." He continued pressing his face against his sister, "Don't be such a sour puss."

"Okay, but just quit embarrassing me." Though, something bothered Victoria about the guy. He was just fishy to her, but she felt bad for him. She couldn't help it, fighting that hunch she had about this guy. She barely even knew him for pete's sake, but he couldn't be that bad. Shoving her brother aside, she walked a step closer towards the guy, "Hey, what's your name?"

Oh no, this again "Yeah, but I can defend myself pretty well. Like with Richard i broke his front two teeth!" Darcy said rather proudly as if she won her gold medal. She liked feeling tough. Especially when it came for defending herself from jerkwads.

Between Oracle, Occult, and the fat man bumping shoulders with her, a smile of relief came up, maybe she was just looking for trouble all this time, someone to piss her off and light the fuse with a flamethrower. Sure the tall big man could have been a nice person just a little peeved that Rhode had stepped in the second he stepped out with his posse, but she wasn't betting on that, this was Hub City after all. A smile crept up her face. 

"Heh." 

She really couldn't hold it in, starting a scene would have felt awkward at first, but she really needed an outlet. Turning around to face the King Crab, her smile disappeared. 

"You got a problem, Asshat?"

Rhode slightly pushed his shoulder to both agitate and harness his attention.

“That’s because you had an awesome teacher.” Saul flexed his chest, and actually lifted up one arm to flex his bicep before dropping both and just kind of chuckling. “And that kid had it coming.” He smirked, giving his daughter a light tap on the shoulder. “Still. I am proud of you kid.”

“R-really?” Wound blinked up to the girl. He hadn’t expected that. He hadn’t really thought of what he was going to do if she said yes. “O-oh.” Did he have money? Oh yes he did, he had that whore’s credit card. “Oh okay. What’d you t-two wanna eat? I’m up for, ya’know…” He shrugged slightly, rubbing at his arm. “Whatever.”

“Hey there kiddo, what’s your name?” Steve tilted his glasses down to look across the bridge of his nose at the small blue girl hiding behind Mabel. He was a naturally gregarious guy, even if he did smell a little funny.

“Oh, you know… I don’t think I ever asked.” Mabel actually looked at little concerned, raising a hand to her mouth as she stepped out of the way so the group could see Misji clearly. She was about to say something else; when from behind her came a girlish squeal.

“Awwwh!” Jenifer squealed as she leaned in toward Esiasch, hands on her knees as she watched the fat rat eat his cookie. “Is this her rat?” She reached a hand out for him to sniff. “He’s so cute… eatin’ his widdle cookie… is it okay for him to be eating a cookie? Rats can eat chocolate right?”

“Rats can eat just about anything.” Liz said with a slight shrug. “I’m sure he’s fine just; don’t let him bite you. Rats carry diseases…”

Tony Dechinko lumbered to a halt, a vile smirk slowly settling across his face as Marley, Karen and Alicia all wisely choose to clear a path between him and the lithe redhead who had just insulted him. The mob King Crab half turned, looking down his nose at Rhode as he spoke. “Oh? Look ‘t this little fish.” He turned the rest of the way, setting his hands on his hips as he looked down at the girl. “Looks like someone forgot the food chain.” He grinned. “You lookin’ for a new lesson, little fish?”

Marley leaned his head to one side. “Hey; you cool with this? We got rounds to make.” He nodded down the street.

“Yeah, yeah, go ahead I got this little fish.” Tony nodded his head back, raising his chin as he spread his stance and held his chest out, making himself look as big and tough as he could… which was pretty big given the fact that he was a naturally large man who’s career consisted of regular vigorous exercise in the form of beating people up. He smirked. He liked calling people ‘little fish’ he was totally going to use that as an insult from now on.

"Don't call me fish."

Rhode grinded this seething statement through her teeth. She was the only Atlantean in the Birds, she was sure that must have been her nickname behind her back, she didn't get along with the team that well. Tony's intimidation of size didn't trouble her, it was that he kept calling her fish that really irked a certain nerve. Rhode faced villains larger than him, in the end their height meant nothing, all their muscles, and all their strength, it meant nothing in the long run.

"You can try and teach me a lesson, but I'm going to warn you right now, I'm a horrible student."

A part of her mind was asking what the hell she was getting herself into. It was too early in the morning to be attracting attention from either bystanders, or just generally fighting. This particular part of her mind also attempted to remind her that she had to lay low until night to actually do anything, which was the reason she was going to train her magic with Occult in the first place, and the thought of Occult reminded her that she left her one weapon back at his office, the mechanical armor that could produce a spear at her will was resting on the floors of his abode, if Rhode did pursue this fight, she would have to do it hand to hand, unless he had a gun or something, she couldn't tell, but she didn't expect any less. This part of her mind was being blinded by the rage that was being pent up inside.

Hands burried in her pockets, her chin up, partly to look up to him and partly because she was trying to act unphased by his physique, Rhode sneered at him.

"Bring it. If you think you can take me."

The logic in Rhode's mind hated her with such a passion.

"Thanks Dad." Darcy smiled, nudging her father softly. "You know.." Darcy slyly said as she picked up her hand and looked at her finger nails. "Pepper spray isn't a good weapon for me, you should give me those two guns that guy gave to you." She batted her eyes and continued, "Just you know, for emergency only but good to keep around. A lot of people do it anyway, so it'd be a good idea I'd be prepared too. Right?" She questioned giving her father a look. She wanted to convince him to give her those guns, she'd take them anyway if he said no. That's how much she wanted them.

Vicky darted her eyes over to Thomas glaring at him, "Well?" She didn't want to admit it, but she was quite interested with Wound. Not the fact that he was around her age and kinda cute; something about him just made her curious. She watched her brother cower sightly from her menacing glare.

"Oh Pah! I'm not going to eat, Not hungry at all." Thomas wormed out. "So don't worry." He smiled waving his hand nonchalant.

Vicky growled, "Fine," The red-haired girl turned her attention back at Wound. "How about you choose? It's your money, after all." She asked in kindlier tone than she gave to her twin brother. It was kind for him to offer, but it wasn't like everyday some guy would try to get her to eat with them. The only difference was that there more perverts than timid guys like this one. She felt that it was odd to see a guy like Wound to be Hub, he looked almost too innocent. Didn't mean she had to keep her guard down, he was still a stranger. Too bad I can't look in to his mind. She thought glumly, as she looked at Wound rubbing his arm.

Saul smirked a little walking with his hands in his pockets. “Hmm… What guns would that be?” He didn’t remember anyone giving him any firearms recently, though maybe that delivery kid had left a package his daughter had gotten into. He shrugged. “Either way, the first time I put a gun in your hand ain’t gonna be on some street on the way to breakfast.” He reached a hand up to rub at his chin, his jubilant mood slowly evaporating as he thought about his kid with a gun. “But, if y’want-” He figured it would probably happen sooner or later though. “I’ll take you to shooting range after work today. You can fire off a few shots with my gun. You should probably know your way around one anyway if I’m gonna be keeping one in the house.” He didn’t like the idea, even saying it tasted sour to him.

“Oh, uhm…” The small priest of Crime raise a hand to scratch at the back of his head deliberately avoided looking at either of the siblings in the eye. What did he want to eat? He had to think about that. “Uhm, there’s a decent pizza place about half a block up.” Maybe it was a little more than that, if it was still there. “They do take out but, I think they do sit down eating also…” He gave a slight shrug and an awkward half-hearted smile. “If they don’t I guess… we could take it back someplace, my place, or yours…” He visibly paled once he realized how that could have been taken. “Or-or-or just do something else! We don’t have go anyplace!”

Tony nodded Marley and his crew on. “You just be sure to leave me that cake. Damn thing’s been haunting me.” He muttered to the trio as they continued on down the street. “So tell me fish,” Tony chuckled sliding on hand back to the rear pocket on his hip, slipping his fingers in and coming out with his brass knuckles around his hand. “how long a lesson did you want.” He punched his knuckles into his open hand and smirked. “Cause I got a cake waiting for me, but I think I can spare a couple minutes to teach ya’ the food chain.”

He smacked his knuckles into his fist again, this time hard enough that he actually shook out his hand. “Alright, you asked for it girl.” He lunged, taking a step forward as he brought his knuckle bearing hand up in a swift upper-cut, aimed for the redhead’s gut. He didn’t really wanna muss up her face.

Misji perked up at being asked her name, head popping up from looking at her boots to gaze; owl eyed, at the lot of them. Her cheeks stained a faded purple as she gave a meek laugh, tilting her head one way than the other as she eyed the lot of them


“Ah—Misji, Sir! Misji Hackett!


The witch girl grabbed the muddy train of her dress, doing a curtsy to the lot of them.


Esiasch, on the other hand, was thriving in the attention. Not that Misji didn’t dote on him all the time; but he never looked at Misji’s conservatively dressed self the way he was looking at the girls all around him.


When Jenifer held her hand out to him, he made a show of ignoring her for a moment, scrubbing the crumbs off of his nose before giving a big yawn. He was bragging, showing off his impressive teeth (good for protecting offspring) and his fat belly (showing off just how well he could forage)


Finally, he looked at her, flicking his big ears all about before snuffing and waddling over to crawl up her arm. He was very heavy, clinging to her (albeit without using his nails) arm and moving up towards her face. If one looked hard enough, one might notice the smug, satisfied smirk on his face.


Misji was glaring at her familiar, annoyed with his flirtatious nature; though she would swear up and down it wasn’t because she was jealous, before looking over to Liz. The witch girl beamed wide; pleased that someone finally understood just how amazing her familiar was.


Back home, everyone teased her for Esiasch.


“Oh yes! Did you know there is this fever you can get exclusively from rat bites? It is supposed to be quite dangerous”


Misji spoke with such vigor, nearly bouncing on her heels as she crossed her arms around behind her back. Proud of her disease spreading rodent.

Rhode tried to pull her hands out her pockets, she didn't expect him to be so fast. She took the hit, yelped, this surprised her. Dropping to her knees, Rhode was gathering herself together, the pain fueled her rage, continuing to blind her logic. Breathe girl! Breathe! She staggered up, next punch he threw, she'd be ready. Fuck him up! Fuck him up good!

"That all you got? Granny's got a better swing than you." Rhode coughed, wiping her lip.

"Heh," Darcy smiled brightly, if he only knew what I do when he's not around. It wasn't like she stayed home like a good girl everyday. She felt bad in a way, but her curiosity was only to blame. It's not her fault that she likes going around hub city and checking out the streets and events. It's interesting. Darcy already knew her way with a gun, heck since she was 14 she got Into them. Some guy name Brett? What was it? He was only a couple of years older than her and taught her to use one and everything.She's been secretly been practicing and got better. "Sounds like plan." After a while in her thoughts, she responded. She'd love to see the look on her father's face when she shot right at the targets. Hell, yeah.She thought confidently.

Vicky chuckled softly watching Wound fumble in his own words. It was amusing to her, yet adorable in a way. She nodded her head at him, " Let's just go and eat there." Vctoria suggested. She knew he didnt mean it for the wrong way but she'd like to mess with him a bit. "I was going to ask you if I looked like that type." She brushed her hand though her bangs from her blue eyes. I think he's worst talking to girls than my brother. She thought with slight satisfaction.

---
Thomas watched his sister seek conversation with the guy. He felt kinda out of their conversation even though his sister gave him a look every so second. Well, that's kinda awkward.. He didn't want to admit it but he was jealous of the stranger. That was his sister after all. They've always been together since they were born and just seeing her grow apart from at moments made him sad. However, he shrugged it off. He hated that negativity. So, he thought with little mind it was good time to embarrass his sister like always or just ditch her and the guy.

Saul nodded, more to himself than to his daughter. He didn’t like the idea of putting a firearm in his daughter’s hands, but frankly; he expected it to be a more useful skill than anything she would learn in school. “I’ll stop at home after work to pick you up, we can have dinner together and then hit the gun range.” Or maybe someplace down by the train station, no one cared if you shot some cans out down that way.

“Well it’s very nice to meet you Ms. Misjic Hackett ma’am.” Steve tipped his hat to the young girl, despite the absence of any hat there to tip. “Mr. Steve Jones at your service, an’ my wife; Mrs. Mary Jones.” He nodded to his wife, before taking himself another cookie from the tray. “Great cookies Mabel.” He popped the baked sweet into his mouth, munching away on it while the girls investigated the boasting rat back by Mabel’s car.

“Ahhh, big yawn.” Jen mimicked as Esiasch showed off his teeth, and then simply giggled as he lumbered up onto her arm. The blonde held it out for him to walk on. “Ooh he’s a big guy isn’t he? A bit of a chunky monkey hmm? Chunky monkey rat~” She teased, reaching a hand up to rub her finger beneath his chin as she grinned.

“He is a big guy isn’t he?” Liz stepped in beside Jen, watching as Esiasch. She set her hands on her knees and knelt down to smile at the rat. “Looks like he could use a wash though.” She reached a hand tentatively up to scratch the rat’s shoulder blades, and try to get some of the dirt out of his fur.

“O-oh…” Wound stammered slightly, before swallowing and peeling himself to look down the street. “R-right l-let’s just… do that.” He glanced from one teen to the other, to his feet, to the street behind them. “It, uhm, the pizza place, should be like… just up here.” He started down the road, sort of glancing back every once in a while to make sure they were still there. “S-so uh, wh-what’s your name? Names, both of your names? Uhm, what are they?” He tried not to look like he was only interested in the girl, even if he couldn’t have cared less about the boy.

“Heh.” Tony smirked. “So you can take a punch.” And then raised his hands up over Rhode’s head, locked together his fingers knitted together. “I’m not impressed.” He leaned down, dropping his hands together with the intent on cracking the redhead over her red-head.

"Ah, I'm just warming you up."

Rhode shot her feet forward, launching herself into the Mob King's abs just as he leaned towards her. She wrapped her arms around Tony's waist, and began to lift him over her head in an attempt to supplex the heavyweight. It wasn't about how much Rhode could lift, but more using his lurched stance to her advantage, bringing him over her head and onto the pavement.

"I'm Victoria, and he's Thomas my brother." She pointed herself and Thomas in her introduction. She tried to keep with Wound in the walk and Thomas didn't care much.

The ebony haired boy yawn slightly behind his sister. "I can introduce myself, you know. I"m not like five." He grumbled as he closed his eyes taking in the morning breeze.

"You sure act like it." Victoria quickly responded to his complaint with a smirk.

"Whatever. So, what's your name?" Thomas changed the topic immediately before they could go into another argument. Honestly, he didn't care much, but it was better than getting ranted by his twin sister. He's already eaten and so has Victoria. It surprised him that she even took the offer for food after they just ate in their home like an hour ago. Maybe she's getting over being anorexic. Oh well. He scratched the back of his head as he looked at the guy continuing to act nervous. Sheesh.

"Hmph."
Victoria took the chance to actually examine Wound better. She wondered why he was bare-footed and like nothing about it. She saw some people like that, in fact now that she thought about it. She has seen some people wear clothing kinda like his before just in different colors. Huh, It's probably some kind of group. She thought to herself quite curiously.

"Alright." Darcy pumped her fist quite loudly that some people glanced at her as they walked down the streets. She was excited that her father was going to actually to let her use a gun. Not like I don't do it behind his back, but I'd like to hear his advice. She thought to herself as she glanced her father. "I'd like to see the guys try to mess with me after seeing me in the shooting range." She boasted giving her father a nudge at the side. Oh, how much she loved her dad. She was such a daddy's girl, she didn't care to hide it.

The witch girl beamed, pulling her attention away from her schmoozing familiar to look over at the man, than to his wife. She bobbed her head before walking over slowly and grabbing a cookie from the plate Mabel held out. She bowed her head, grin widening to a mischievous smirk.

“Ms. Mabel told me that you all were part of a church that wanted to clean up this park? How goes that noble endeavor?”

Misji looked to the stubborn bush that had refused to be moved. She lifted the cookie to her mouth, nibbling gently at the edge as a small pang of guilt sprang to life in her belly. She should really help these people, they seemed nice and none of them had pitch forks or torches to mob at her with.

Esiasch ruffled, wrapping himself around Jenifers’ shoulders and wriggling around to show her that yes, he was a big fat rat. He smirked, making a soft squeaking noise before pressing his cheek into Jenifers’ and making a purring noise.

”I’ll show you a chunk monkey you erogenous little—“


“Esiasch!”

He hadn’t meant to project that thought, wincing as Misji scolded him out loud. He huffed and closed his eyes, purring without inner monologue this time as Liz scrubbed at his shoulders.

The witch child huffed, scrunching her nose as she had jerked her head over towards her familiar when he began projecting little static bits of his sensations. It was distracting and very inappropriate, and it made her feel uncomfortable around everyone.

“Please, forgive our messy states. We haven’t had time to bathe since arriving here this morning.”

Saul chuckled slightly as his daughter got excited and pumped her fist in the air. “Heh, you’ve still gotta be careful.” He started, dropping the humor. “You’re not gonna be the only one out there with a gun, and if there’s one thing I want you to remember; it’s that there’s always someone out there with a bigger gun, always.” He was dead serious on that point. “I don’t want you going out there and holdin’ up a bank just cause I’m lettin’ you pop off a few rounds.” He bopped Darcy in the shoulder, before stopping walking and looking around. “Wait a second; Did we pass the diner?”

“Awh don’t you worry about that.” Steve said with a smirk. “I haven’t showered today either.” He laughed softly, before his wife nudged him in the ribs and he flinched. “What? It’s true.”

“Just because something is true doesn’t mean you have to tell everyone.” Mary said with a smirk wrapping an arm around her husband’s waist.

“Really?” Steve threw one arm over his woman. “Cause I think you ought to.” He hugged Mary beneath one arm and just chuckled softly.

“Oh you two.” Mabel got in on the soft chuckling about when the boys managed to meander over to the group.

Jeffry threw his shirt over his shoulder and pulled his work gloves off one hand at a time padding them into one another before reaching for a cookie. “Cookies? Sweet.” He popped one in his mouth and gobbled it down. “Got any milk?” He asked with a smirk.

“Don’t be smart you.” Mabel retorted with equal parts humor and honesty.

Jen giggled almost uncontrollably as Esiasch nuzzled her cheek, scrunching herself up and sticking her cheek out for the rat to nuzzle. Elizabeth chuckled as she continued to scratch at his shoulders. “Awh let ‘im be. He’s just being friendly, aren’t you buddy?” She raised her free hand to scratch beneath the rat’s chin. “What was his name? Isaiah?”

“M-my n-name, it’s W-” He cut himself off. “Uhm… Will… my name is Will.” He nodded almost more to himself than to the duo. He chuckled softly. “So, are you two… uhm, roommates? Or like cousins, or something?” Wound continued to walk down the street ahead of the two, walking sideways more than straight forward, so he could continually look back at the two. He only asked because, well you could never be sure down Paradise Lane.

The priest itched at his arm, scratching his shoulder softly. “So…” He Wanted to change the subject. “What’d you two like on your pizza?

Tony’s feet lifted up off the ground, a little. He was surprised the girl beneath him could lift his weight, but he was hunched over her. Of course he did just stick with the original plan of clubbing her over the head, though now it wasn’t so much her head as her back that his fists came swinging down into, striking against something hard hidden beneath her coat.

That move was way too fancy, Rhode knew she was going to pay for trying to show off like that. As his fists came down on her, she collapsed to the floor, despite the luck of him hitting her armor; she growled at him, as the force of the impact brought her down. Her face planted to the sidewalk, Rhode tried to scramble away from the King Crab's feet; scruffing up her coat, not that it mattered to her anyway.
