A Box of Stained-Glass Tears
Who: Kit & Alexa
What: LOTTERY POST WOOO
Where: Lobby of Pax Letale
When: Saturday morning, just after the mail has arrived
Warnings: TBA - but probably low
It wasn't anything unusual as he ricocheted down the elevator to the lobby, picked up the paper from the lobby desk, and swung his keys as he went to check his mail. It was Saturday, and his routine was pretty normal. Coffee, bacon, more coffee, a little work online, then downstairs to get the mail and the paper, then back up for more coffee and poking about the internet.
If he was really lucky, he didn't run into any friendly neighbors who made him feel awkward.
Today was gearing up to be such a day; he'd run into no-one on his floor, no-one in the elevator, and the lobby was blissfully empty. The real disruption came when he opened his mail box and inside the bills and credit card offers was a small, ornate, gold ring. He peered a bit closer at it and was surprised to find the words 'we know' written on it.
He wasn't the sort to panic, but this seemed quite an opportune time to do so. Was it about his hacking? Or someone in the 'friendly' complex who knew about his past? And what did the ring mean? He stood there a moment before shutting the door to his mail slot, unable to move or take his eyes off the ring. It was captivating, and he didn't know why. Familiar, though he had never seen it. His, but it had never belonged to him.
