Zoom. Getting mugged has become something quite common in this part of town, ever since the government crumbled under the mafia's power. Why this part? Well, it is the city. And many people live in the city. Many people with purses and pockets who walk in large crowds in the morning, afternoon, and evening. And let's not forget about those living expenses and loansharks lurking about; it was just the perfect crime hotspot full of thieves and unsuspecting victims. And Jay was no stranger to this. She eyeballed the group around her for any eyes that could have been watching, then nonchalantly brushing by a girl with a small purse, reaching inside of it with two fingers quickly, and flicking out a folded up 20 dollar bill, then walking on as if she were in a hurry. She stuck her newly acquired booty down her shirt, and slowed to a languid walk close to the curb. She let out a sigh, while thinking of what she would do with the money. Oh, the possibilities. Zoom. A car sped by quickly, brown mush splattering over the sidewalk and leaving a mud stain on the thief's pants. She stopped walking and slowly bent down to inspect the large brown spot now taking up residence at the bottom at her slacks. She could almost see a face in it. A smirking face. It was like the universe was poking fun at her. The curse of looking like a teenage boy, the curse of living on the streets, the curse of having to reach into strange places to find lunch money; and now, the curse of having unclean clothes! "Ah, c'mooooon!" She swore to herself while lifting her leg in the air in disbelief. "GIVE ME A BREAK."I just bought these with borrowed money! With the wet substance now bleeding through her pants, she put her leg back down and slumped over herself. She sighed and carried on, blending in once more with the crowd. This time, farther away from the street. Well, at least she knew what she was spending the money on!
