    gettin' outta this city [yuri]

    Post by Aran Sawyer on Wed Jul 23, 2014 1:30 am

    Lately, life had been pretty good for Aran. She had gotten the job of a lifetime working for an overloridian, got to live in a fucking mansion (in the "servant's quarters", but who gave a shit?), and was getting the fuck out of Stonecraft forever.

    Aran had lived in this god forsaken city her entire life. She had taken shelter in sewers during bad winters. She had seen people die in ditches on the side of the road. She'd seen her friends lose what little they had to drugs and debts. She herself had beat the everloving shit out of other children for money.

    And now she was leaving for good. Forever.

    She had been part of a very tightknit group here when she was younger. Very few of them were still around. Some, like her, had gotten out. Some hadn't made it at all. Some had turned on the others. It was almost surreal now, to Aran, thinking how it used to be. There was nothing keeping her here anymore.

    She had returned for one reason, because she forgot to return her key to her landlord. She didn't see why it mattered, the lock on the door was broken anyways. The door itself didn't even latch. But whatever. It was done and she was leaving for good.

    Yuri and Vera were making their rounds through the city, creeping in shadows to watch clio, using their own shadows to fuck with others, eavesdropping on conversations to see if they could lend a hand to a clio in need of some dirty work. This was their domain. This was where they thrived. (No offense to Vera, she's badass, but this is especially where Yuri thrived.)

    Yuri rounded a corner, cigarette held loosely between his lips as he puffed from it. His eyes were cold as ice. His swagger left his arms hanging like recently-used swings while his legs carried weight with every step. There was a rhythm to his walk, a beat to his stride. He had power here and he knew it, yet he came off careless. He was a skinny guy, and quite tall which didn't help, but his muscles were toned and he was absolutely not someone to fuck with.

    "Aw shit!" he said incredibly loudly, letting his cigarette fall from his lips to his fingertips. He had spotted someone familiar, someone that shot him back years and years. He could see the shape of her face from down the street, and while he'd seen a lot of women in his life, he could recognize her from miles away. One of the only clio he'd considered anything close to a friend in his life: Aran.

    "Shit, girl!" he yelled, waving excitedly to get her attention (as if he probably didn't have it already). "Fuck, I thought you were dead!"

    Aran's head snapped up when she heard a familiar voice call out to her from far away. She saw a skinny guy waving to her from down the road, and immediately recognized him as an old friend named Yuri. Fuck, she hadn't seen this guy in years. He hadn't been part of Aran's group she'd lived with on the streets, but they had met at the fighting rings and formed a close bond nonetheless. Then he got involved in some shit Aran didn't want to touch, and they hadn't seen each other since.

    "Oh fuck," she said in disbelief. "I haven't seen you in forever, man."

    Yuri wrote: "Fuck, I thought you were dead!"

    "Nah, not yet," Aran laughed.

    "Ha!" Yuri exclaimed in a loud laugh. He understood the reality of death teasing him -- though where he was in life now, he felt like he had beat death so brutally that it didn't have a chance. He felt invincible.

    Confidence, a little bit of skill, and a horrible amount of cheating and drugs will do that to you.

    "How you been?" he asked, finally getting to a point where he was standing in front of her. He breathed in the smoke from his cigarette, looking her up and down with his bloodshot eyes. Something about her was different. She wasn't so...beat down, it seemed. He exhaled a cloud of smoke into the air above their heads. "Haven't seen ya 'round in a long time."

    "Eh, you know," Aran said with a shrug. "Just tryna get the fuck outta here, as usual. Finally did it, though! I'm leavin' this shithole forever."

    It had never been a secret that Aran wanted out of Stonecraft, even when she was a kid. Everyone--everyone told her it would never happen. When she decided to quit the fighting rings, her "manager" had even told her that without him, she would end up dead in an alleyway with no one to blame but herself. She really wanted to knock his teeth out for saying that, but she didn't out of respect.

    "How bout you, man? What's new?" she asked.

    Yuri raised his eyebrows when Aran mentioned that she was getting out of Stonecraft. Clio didn't just leave Stonecraft. What was she doing? Where was she going? Was someone trying to kill her for it? While he was quite comfortable in Stonecraft now, he couldn't help but remember for just a second all of the years that he would have done anything to leave.

    "I'm jus' chillin'," he said with a shrug. He set his cigarette in his mouth, letting it hang from his lips. "Kinda run this town a bit more now." He smiled a bit. "Moved up on the ladder, ya know? But hey, good for you, kid. How'd ya manage that one?"

    "Saw an opportunity. Took it," Aran replied vaguely. She thought about what Yuri had just said, about running this town. Who was he working with now? she wondered. She, for one, had never wanted to get involved with the people who ran the place. Not that she was really one to take the moral high road, (she had done too much fucked up shit for that) but damn, those guys could be fucking evil when it suited them. "Whattaya mean, run this town?"
