Midian City Tober's Diary #12

Tober's diary is composed in a small, hardbound book that she keeps with her.

The Softer Side of Reinhardt
Reinhardt and Yuki

I guess I should write about Reinhardt. He's the guy who did most of the rowing in the lifeboat to get us here, and he helped keep me alive during my first night here. He's a nice guy, but he's very overprotective. I keep calling him "dad", but I don't think he likes that title very much. He's been doing fine since his legs were replaced with mech, and they grew him another tongue. He's been working security at the TZ (Twilight Zone).

Rein likes me. We were sitting down on a hill the other day and he sort of tried to put the moves on me. I told him no, and for a moment I wasn't quite sure if he was going to take no for an answer (he's a big guy; I couldn't stop him physically), but he stopped. I don't mean to talk badly about him, but he's one of those guys, like most human males that like me, that wants to keep me for a pet. I guess that's fine for some cats, but not me. Although I do wonder what it would be like sometimes, to just be cared for, loved, and kept safe...

Anyway, a couple of days ago he calls to tell me to check my bank account. It turns out $20K was deposited into my account from an unknown source. He said he would look into it. I told him I didn't want to touch the money until I knew where it came from. After I got off the phone with him, I realized...duh! He must have put it in my account. I started spending it that day. Now I don't have to steal clothes or food...or anything else for that matter. I don't know how long the money will last, but it will get me by for quite a while anyway.

I also made a new friend today...her name is Angela and she's with a group called The Pack. I don't know much about them, but Angela seems nice. We did nip together.

I guess that's all I have to write about for now. I haven't run into Kohji again, knock on wood.

Yay! Finally something good has happened to poor little Tober!

*wonders how long Kohji would last if Reinhardt got ahold of him*

She didn't mention a word of it to Reinhardt because she doesn't want to see him get any more hurt than he already has. But soon, as you'll's a moot point!

(ooooh foreshadowing...)
