| Spring finally felt like it was officially here. That one fact had a lot of Sing Sing’s residents crowding into the courtyard to enjoy the sun and the warmer weather. Being cooped up inside the buildings all winter had driven all of them a little bit nuts, the kids especially, or so it seemed. |
Nick couldn’t really blame them though, because she felt about as stir crazy as they did. Being holed up inside the buildings for the majority of the winter had made her desire to get out and stretch her legs that much more apparent, after all she was a girl who had grown up spending the majority of her days outside racing around like a wild child. The splint on her wrist kept her from doing a whole lot, but it didn’t stop her from simply sitting outside and enjoying the sunshine and the warmer temperatures. Which was exactly what she was doing at that moment.
She was stretched out on an open patch of grass, propped up on one elbow. A book laying open in her lap, though she hadn’t been reading it for close to twenty minutes now. Her attention had been drown elsewhere, to observing the other inhabitants of Sing Sing as they all got out to enjoy the weather just like her.
Her gaze shifted from person to person, group to group, people watching in s sense. Sing Sing really was more like a little village then a safe house, and she wondered if maybe they would be the ones to reinstate a sense community in the world – one that didn’t seem to exist under the governments control. Pushing up off of her elbow to sit up straight, her attention was drawn to a group of children racing around making zombie noises – and a couple of the boys came just within yelling distance of her right as one of the boys reached out and grabbed the other, pulling him close enough to bite down on his shoulder, causing the smaller boy to yelp in pain and reach for his shoulder to rub at the now aching and probably bruised spot.
“Oh you’ve got to be kidding me,” Nick muttered as she took in the scene. She glanced around to see if any kind of parent was in sight. Nope, not a single authority figure. she sighed inwardly, frustrated with the fact that this stupid game had been allowed to continue like this. It wasn’t anyone’s fault but the parents though, or at least that was her opinion. “Someone should really get them to stop that.” This was said louder, though not to anyone in particular.
