Momentum (Jackie Faulk)

Sirens. Jackie groaned and rolled over, glancing at the clock. Six thirty in the morning. She'd slept for three hours. Some part of her pulled at her, to go and investigate, but she forced it back, rolling over and willing the sound to fade...

Alarm clock next. Didn't matter what time, she had to get up now. Groaning, she rolled to the edge of the bed, running a hand through her fiery red hair. Eyes still mostly closed, she got up, walking through her apartment to the bathroom. Shower, dressed, last of the milk on breakfast. She pondered getting more, but the budget was pretty tight till next week, and she was nearly out of cereal anyways. She could have it dry for a few days. Wouldn't be the first time.

Stepping over the broken floorboard, she left her apartment, making sure to lock it after her. Off to work. Jogging the last block, warm up tired muscles. Too many long nights.

She still never knew why her job even existed. People with too much money and a need to be special, maybe. Or maybe digital theft was worse than she thought. Still, she had little reason to complain. Grab package from Person A, deliver to person B. Usually it was an office to office thing, with occasionally a home or warehouse thrown in, as it was today. She loved it, running about the city, wind in her face. Sun too bright, it burns... She ignored the thought with a frown, running a little bit faster.

It was a busy day, one of her coworkers had twisted an ankle, so the rest of them were getting more work than usual. By the end of the day, she was tired, but in a good way. Even had a little more money than she expected. The thought of her empty fridge back home came to her, but she shrugged it off. Can't make good decisions all the time, she mused. So instead, her feet carried her elsewhere, settling on the Broken Shillelagh. Mostly students there, should be a less rowdy crowd. Safer.

The inside of the building was darker, typical pub atmosphere. It settled around her like a blanket, comfortable, almost warm. Jackie bought herself a couple beer, then brought them to an empty table to nurse them a while, watching the rest of the place passively as she let the music draw her attention.

Heels clicking on the concrete, Lexie stormed off up the street alone. While unclear, her destination seemed unselected; a random direction with no real aim. However, in rather a cause for concern, she was heading eastward toward the restricted zone...

Jackie followed the woman from above. It was simple enough, and even simpler as Nyx, taking her time to remain quiet, and slipping through the shadows of the early evening to save her from the climbing she'd have to do during the day. She was less familiar with this part of town, especially once the woman below turned east. Jackie had no real reason to make deliveries to the restricted zone, and her favourite runs mostly took her around the area occasionally skirting the fringe. She'd have to work harder to keep up...
