WHO: Jasna & Briareos
WHEN: Tuesday afternoon
WHERE: Briareos' tattoo shop
WHAT: Inked up sea monsters making friends
If Jasna had her way she would live out most of her life at the bottom of the Hudson. The problems with this, however, were twofold.
One: The Hudson was disgusting. It was eight million people polluting it every day and the pure vileness of what sat on the bottom of that river didn't even bear thinking about. And Jasna didn't have to think about it - she'd been down there and tried to sleep. It felt like sleeping in a plastic bag of slime.
And two: There were a lot of people on the Hudson. There were boats and occasionally strange mechanical things sent down to the depths. It wasn't a relaxing place to be and it if she was ever spotted Jasna didn't know what would happen to her.
So she'd given up on trying to sleep in rivers. She could have moved somewhere quieter but small towns lacked the presence of immortals and without them she would be alone. New York was like a hub for people like her.
Instead Jasna got herself apartments, making sure they had amazing bathrooms in them. Every other room in the house could be terrible but a big bath sold it for Jasna. She didn't sleep in beds - they were strange and uncomfortable - instead she filled the tub and slipped down into the cold water to sleep, letting it surround and soothe her. (If anyone ever broke in and found her they were going to get a terrible fright, especially since Jasna didn't breathe.)
Walking home from work the week before, Jasna had spotted a tattoo shop. That was where she was heading today, clad in torn jeans and a t-shirt for a band she had never listened to. (The clothes were stolen, taken from a poor unfortunate man she had drowned. Jasna saw no use in wasting such things.)
She opened the door of the shop and was immediately greeted by the feeling of cold currents crossing her skin, a feeling she recognised for what it was: the presence of another immortal connected to the water.
