OOC--------------------SIGNUPS ACT I The Early Bird… The Runi Mansion June 19th 5:00 am They city of New York never slept, but at 5am Sky figured it was as close as it was going to get. The nocturnal species would be just getting into bed as everyone else got up. The ocelot had collapsed some thirty minutes ago after getting back from a particularly strange job that he was definitely not going to think about right now. He lay on his stomach on the couch in the middle of the grand living room. The couch’s pillow was on top of his head instead of under it and his bare feet hung up and off the arm of it. The large pretentious chandelier above him was turned off and the house was mostly quiet this early. Mostly, in his sleep Sky’s small ear kept twitching in annoyance at some sound, and his nose twitched signaling that he was on the verge of waking up once again. He really didn’t want to wake up, but the fates had decided different. Blood shot sky blue eyes blinks open and a small half growl half groan escaped his mouth. Sky lifted his head for a brief moment, but then flopped down again. Whatever the noise was, it wasn’t worth it. Not yet anyway. The Runi mansion was just outside of the main city, on the verge of being in the country of the State. As a consequence they got both country noises and city noises throughout the day and night. It was difficult for a lot of anthropomorphic to get used to, but get used to it they did. It helped that the mansion was thought of as being haunted by the local children population. So they didn’t usually get any wannabe thieves or curious kits. There was a bus that stopped outside of the mansion’s gates. A lucky happenstance, it only went as far as the closest subway entrance and then came back, about a twenty minute drive in good traffic. The commute was much longer in New York traffic. Most of the people on the ride would be from the surrounding mansions. Most of the original families had been replaced by newer ones. Though the surrounding valley had a heavy Bovidae population there was a family of alligators a few houses down and a Nuevo rich coyote family had moved in next door. But none of them were what would be considered half-breeds. The Runi mansion was the only place within miles that had a mixed ‘family’ living there. Sky was quite happy with it. Just… not when he was this tired.
