WHO: Jessie Northrup & Hati
WHEN: Friday night
WHERE: Somewhere in the city
WHAT: Random character interactions and me trying to find ways for unlikely characters to meet.
WARNINGS: tba depending on where this decides to go.
Biking home from a late night closing of the bakery, Jessie's bike dropped its chain and she swore under her breath and swerved off the street, trying not to get hit by a car. After a few moments of angry honking directed at her, Jessie was on the pavement and dragging her bike out of the way of the foot traffic. She'd need to tell the people expecting her that she was going to be late, so she moved against the brick wall and out of the way of the well-dressed people starting their Friday nights so that she could make a call. (She felt rather undressed beside everyone else this evening.)
Nearby she saw a man, attractive in his own strange sort of way, and smiled at him in a friendly way. "My attempts at eco-friendly biking aren't always the most successful," she said. She wasn't sure why she said anything at all, but something about the man unnerved her a little.
