PostSubject: The Call [PreseaLynn/TheDusk]   Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:25 pm

The dull whir of the ventilation system hummed in the silence of the quaint apartment room. The sound soothed and calmed the soul of Claire, who'd had a long day out on the job. Her feet were sore from the activities of the day. Her new boss at the paper had been driving her mad. There were points where she even wondered why she had accepted the job in the first place. Was a pay raise really worth it? Was the freedom of being out and on her own really worth all this pain in her arch right now?

"Go down to the news stand and advertise the paper! We need a friendly face!"

"Go take pictures of birds in the park, we need the public to know that we are an eco friendly wildlife supporting paper!!"

"Go down to Micho's Pizza to picture their new opening!!"

It was all IMMENSELY boring crap. The kind of crap that made her feel like she was wasting her time. Her lavender hair sat ruffled at her shoulders as she rolled onto her belly, burying her face into the pillow with a sigh. The young girl lay sprawled out across the mattress without a care for where her blanket even was. The neglected comfort item was probably slopped across the floor from an unintentional kick. It had to have been because her spine was chilled by the cold air. The tired girl sighed, knowing that she had no energy to get up off the bed and fix the thermostat to a warmer temperature. Her body was completely supported and loved by the bedsheets anyways. Comfort had persuaded her not to make any attempt at moving.

Claire's thoughts soon returned to her raging boss and his ramblings from earlier that day. She soon found herself grumbling again with distress.

Was that really what was important in Detroit these days? Birds and Pizza shops? It made sense in a way. The paper was trying to bring out the good news since the city had seen so much crime in the last decade. However, it was ridiculous and boring to turn a blind idea to the darkness of the city and its underbelly. And what exactly would replace it? Pretty bird pictures and paper sales? It couldn't replace it. It was only covering up the real truth of the city.

The city that even the sassy Claire Aldridge had chills walking alone in. The place was a wreck to put it kindly. A reputation had spread across America that this had quickly become one of the worst cities in America due to its horrible crime rate. The once proud Motor City had fallen to the "Murder City" as doomsayers had so frequently called it. It was no wonder the place was paying so well for her new position, who wanted to be in a place where everyday a walk down the street was life threatening?

Claire certainly didn't. The feisty young female didn't have one ounce of fear in her heart. Hell, even without her secret life as Titanite, the lavender blonde would still walk these gritty streets. She was no push over and never thought of herself as so. She wasn't going to let a few things separate her from a life of freedom. That would be ridiculous and degrading. When Claire wants something, there is nothing short of a tidal wave that can stop her (even then it depends on the size of the tidal wave).

She couldn't complain because the paycheck was more than enough to keep her happy with a home. The exhausted girl snuggled her face against the pillow, letting darkness cover her vision. The dull humming of the AC and the pure darkness provided the perfect somber tone for her dreariness. It wasn't long before her dreams began to sift through her mind before she'd even fallen asleep. Her soft snores began to take place before the woman had even passed out. It was the perfect night after a long day of work to just rest...


"WHY DO I DENY THE HEART'S GROWING COLDER? TOO QUICK TO CRITICIZE THE LULLABY...," her phone suddenly blared the lyrics of her favorite Of Mice and Men song.


Claire was suddenly jolted from the most comfortable position of her life by the loud music of her ringtone. Her dreary eyes snapped over to the phone on her nightstand. Her eyebrows suddenly narrowed with fury over to the 2:10am on her digital clock. Her fiery emeralds glared over to the phone that was vibrating so intensely that it seemed the damned deathtrap would explode any second. The girl's heart became a burning hole as her eyes pierced the electronic device and the bearded bald man's face across the identification.

Mr. Vander, her boss.

Claire groaned dramatically as her face plopped back into her pillow, the hand holding the phone dropping to smack the side of the bed. What could he possibly want this late?! She contemplated on throwing the device, or possibly destroying it in her hand, but she couldn't do that anymore-- Wil wasn't there with all the money in the world anymore to replace everything. Sighing in frustration, she reluctantly lifted her hand to look at the screen of her phone, scowling at the picture of her irritating boss, and pressed the 'speaker' button. She was too lazy to put it up to her ear.

"... --Nnh. Hello?"

Her bosses firm, demanding voice came on over the phone's speaker loud and clear.

"Aldridge!" Vander's chain smoking gargle came abruptly through the phone. Claire's ears were abused with his sudden sharpness that really made her want to just destroy the stupid cellular device and be over with it.

"I need you downtown, some maniac with a gang called the "Army of V" has a pre-teen girl held hostage atop the One Detroit Center building downtown! Demanding a million dollars from each TV station in the city! All the news agencies are covering it so I want your ass down there as well woman! You're gonna get paid real good if you get me what I need!" His voice excitingly spoke. This was a comforting change from all the sunshine and butterfly errands he'd been sending her on. It was strange how there needed to be ground breaking, panicked news for the old man to get through to the real scourge of Detroit.
