I thought you were a racing man
Who: Percy and Jayati
What: Percy learns that Jay’s bite is worse than her bark. Sort of. Almost.
When: March 9th, 8 p.m.
Where: Last Stop
His evening was going by slowly--too slowly. He hadn’t written about anything exciting in what seemed like ages. In fact, his most recent article had been a detailed overview of the events offered at the Cherry Blossom Festival. Sure, it had been a fun afternoon, but Percy wanted a story that was...meatier. Festivals came and went, whereas criminal records stayed with an individual forever.
Unless they were clever or lucky enough to escape their fate.
While he didn’t necessarily consider himself a workaholic, it was possible that browsing the world wide webs after dinner in a lazy search for any strange happenings in Newport Beach might count as working off the clock. In his defense, dinner was finished, his turtle was fed, the dishwasher was noisily taking care of business, and the entire night still stretched before him.
On a whim, he chose a random video recommended to him by the all mighty Youtube. Apparently, a fight had occurred at a nearby bar, and out of drunken delight, it had been filmed and quickly uploaded to the internet. Seeing as how there was nothing wrong with watching a good cage match, Percy loaded the video to watch; when it began to play, he realized why it had been recorded (albeit by someone with a shaky, likely inebriated, hand). Two women were tearing at one another, and neither of them seemed willing to back down. Although the video was not the clearest, Percy could make out that one of them had a rather large tattoo across the back of her shoulders. He leaned closer to his laptop, squinting to try and make out the shape--but with the bad camera handling, it was next to impossible.
The recording stopped right before the fight ended (or must have ended). Percy mulled his thoughts for a few minutes, deciding to input the bar’s location into his phone’s gps app.
