Midian City Tober's Diary #14

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

Something really strange happened to me today. I was roof-hopping and I happened to slip from a roof after a bad landing, and ended falling in the open sewer. Totally gross. As I cursed to myself and picked myself up, I heard voices coming from inside the sewer tunnel. Of course my curiosity got the best of me, so I crept in to check it out. I saw two masked people in there; one female neko and one MPD officer. I stood there quietly in the shadows, but the talking stopped when I entered the tunnel. That made me nervous because I figured that meant they knew I was there.

Well, I was right, they did. The neko approached me...she was a scary sight, all covered in spikes and dressed all in black, but with beautiful eyes behind her mask. She spoke in a calm, matter-of-fact tone and asked my why she shouldn't kill me. I honestly don't remember exactly what I replied...I think something about being able to help her and the Catwalkers, which I assumed she was a member of. She considered the reply and told me I would have to prove myself. She gave me a necklace with an amulet to wear as a sign of my loyalty to her, and she told me she would be calling on me to perform certain tasks for her. It didn't sound like I had a choice in the matter. She gave me her phone number and then disappeared into the shadows again.

Her name is Lindsay. Apparently, I'm now her bitch.

The MPD officer stood there the whole time and when Lindsay went away, he (or she, I'm not sure) went up to me, and silently offered me a small can of tuna. I nervously took it from his hand, saying "thanks..." and then he also quietly disappeared into the shadows. Needless to say, I got out of the sewers as quickly as possible and went to the subway restroom to clean myself off and put on some clean clothing.

I swear I am never going to set foot in those goddamn sewers again.

Yeah! A new blog entry! I'm almost tempted to write out Shadow's adventures... But I'd have to pick certain days when things do happen around me... And when they do I tend to get dropped neck deep... ^_^

Some of the non-nekos Shadow is involved with are contemplating assassination right now... No details though, as that would ruin the fun... ^_^

October Hush said...

Go for it! It's fun.

FYI, these entries are way behind what's currently happening in Midian, so as not to spoil any plots or stories that are happening =)

theshadow said...

*giggles* Well I do realize that, I'm not sure how much behind is good in Midian though... A week? Weekly notes on Midian may work ok...

October Hush said...

Right now, this diary is about 2 months behind what's currently happening in Midian.

I probably won't write about anything more recent than a month behind what's currently happening, for the sake of roleplay.

Even still, obviously I don't write about *everything* that happens to Tober...especially things she doesn't realize are happening to her ;-)

wow, you fell from the roof and then directly in the sewer hole, what are the chances of that! well at least it probably saved little tobies life which is good ^^

i cant wait to see what her first task will be ^^

October Hush said...

Actually, Tiana, I should have been a little more clear in my writing. There's a couple of areas where the sewer is completely open, like a river with concrete walls. That's where I fell in. It would truly be luck to fall straight into an open manhole! ;-)

theshadow said...

Yeah Midian has plenty of Canals... Big open areas to fall into... Worse though is by the bridge... I sat on a bench there one day and when I tired to get up it dropped me in the river... Yuck... >_>

That was part of my third day in Midian... I had to tp to get out to... <_<

Midian is full of suprises.
