A New Beginning
The three days of janitorial duty passed quietly. She was moved away from her team and didn't see them throughout the time as she cleaned bathrooms and mopped hallways. Usually machines did this type of work but she found out it was a common punishment.

It was also told to her that if her sergeant had suggested it she could've got an official right up which could lead to a termination. Morgan, the head of janitorial services, was a nice older man that new the entire fortress like the back of his hand. One good thing to come of it was that Azailah learned the layout much faster.

While the tier three operators shared three to a room the tier two operators had their own rooms and a much nicer common area. She knew this because she also had to clean their rooms while they were off their tours. The Tier 1 area was off limits and required specific authorization to enter but she did learn where the area was.

Another area of interest was the virtual training arcade. Through advanced programs and augmented reality operators were able to practice their skills without the threat of being hurt, much. There were also programs specifically for mages.

A movie theater was open to the operators and general staff. While it wasn't as nice as what Azailah was used to it was still nice all the same. As were the Tier specific dining rooms and bars, though the consumption of alcohol was closely monitored and controlled based on when a team was to go on call.

Throughout the time Morgan told Azailah about her new teammates and leadership. How her sergeant was indeed tier one until he was demoted. Harley, the sniper, was also tier 1 and voluntarily dropped levels to continue working with Bulldog. Doc was Tier 2 eligible but continued to stay on the team because, it was believed, how much he respected Bulldog and the amount of people a Tier 1 medic had a chance to save. He was a former military medic unlike Mouse that had been recruited straight out of Med-School. Spaz, the drone operator, was rather new but a very gifted mind. The trolls were both highly educated and cultured due to their father owning a double A cooperation but struck out on their own. Gravel, the other sniper, would've been a stand out if he wasn't on a team with a former tier 1 sniper.

It wasn't clear how much of this was truth and how much was rumor but Morgan seemed completely convinced it was all true. On the final day of her tour Azailah was released from disciplinary duty to return to her team or go on her way as she pleased,  Morgan would cover for her if she wanted to dip out early.

Azailah grabbed her stuff and decided now would be a good time to start the inevitable. Finding an apartment on her own. She had no idea where to even start, so once she was out of what she called the fortress she made her way out into the city and quickly browsed the classified for any possible prospects.

When she checked her comlink account she saw that the current total was 12,500 as her salary had ticked over.

Witb that money she found a few decent places she could afford. She also found some really nice places but she'd have to carefully budget.

Azailah thought about it. No one would likely come over now that she did not have an abundance of funds to spend on her friends. No wealth. No influence. And all she had to show for her current job was one bloody mission and three days of janitorial service.

She decided to opt for a mid-line apartment, and fill it with the comforts the was more comfortable with.

A New Beginning
She found a one bedroom one bath apartment in an apartment stack. A small kitchen was attached to a living room off of which sat the bedroom with the bathroom attached to it. Including the security deposit she was out 8,500 NuYen. Of course it came with no furniture and only basic appliances.

Feel free to say what you have and where you put it. You can even do the colors of the walls in AR. Though in reality they'll stay white. In AR you can also put up digital pictures and things of that nature. It'll just depend on your imagination.

Azailah had never thought about transportation before. Someone had always driven her where she needed to go. She decided to pay for the shipment of her stuff from the storage. She sweet talked the gentlemen into placing the items in her new place since she was a weak girl and all alone.

Once everything was on place the apartment didn't seem....well it had least had her stuff in it.

The bedroom had her plush top mattress queen bed in it which took up a lot of space. A mountain of pillows covered the bed itself with a just visible mint green comforter with yellow flowers on it. She had too many clothes to fit into the closest and decided she would need to but extra storage. For now she put her shoes out in the living room and hung up what she could. The bathroom she immediately drowned in her beauty and hair products.

The living room was sparse, having only a papason chair and an ottoman. In the middle of the floor she laid out her red plush rug. Everything was a mixture of reds, greens, and yellows.

She had nothing for the kitchen which she was unsure of how to remedy. She didn't cook. She never needed to...

For a final touch she set the walls to a personalized setting. They were a calming shade of deep yellow/orange. Sprinkled throughout there were various movie posters.

More than anything Azailah wanted to go. She almost auto responded with a "you know I'm there!" But she hesitated. She only had roughly 2,000 and she still needed food and perhaps a microwave or somethjng for the kitchen. How much did she usually spend at the clubs anyway? She just realized she had never thought of the amount. She looked at her creds. She divided them. Perhaps $200 was enough? The number 200$ seemed so little just a few days ago. She had shoes more than that.

She finally replied. "I'll be there! I'll meet you tonight!" She immediately went to plan an outfit. A white dress that would shine unde the black lights it a black one that would enable her to hide?

She dressed in a black dress with white heels before doing her makeup and catching a cab to two blocks away from the club. The two block walk was longer than she expected, especially in heels, and by the time she was there her feet were killing her.

When she got to the club her friend, Daniel, was waiting in front of the line of people waiting to get in. She kept looking expectantly at all the cars that were dropping off celebrities who walked directly into the club.

With the noise Azailah easily snuck up on Daniel. It was so comforting to see a friendly face after her tough couple of days. Hey! she said enthusiastically.

Daniel jumped in surprise and spun to face Azailah. Daniel studied her up in down, immediately suspicious, "Where did you come from?"

She pointed down the road. "Damn car broke down over there! Didn't want to keep you waiting so i just walked. You ready?" Azailah smiled warmly.

Daniel cranned her neck to look down the street then shrugged, "Sure."

They walked up to the doorman who let them cut the line, she was Ms Montague after all. The deep base could be felt in the chest even outside, inside it was immense and mixing with the smoke and lights it was almost overwhelming. Dancing sweating bodies filled the dance floor, almost all of the people were on one type of party drug or another.

Once inside the waitress lead them to the VIP area then asked what they would like brought to them. Before Azailah could speak Daniel started naming off several different bottles of expensive booze. The waitress looked over at Azilah to see if she wanted to add anything.

Azailah slowly shook her head, eyes wise with fear as she realized what was happening. She then force a smile. On second thought how about we just get two glasses of energy whiskey.   Again she forced a smile, immediately regretting her decision to come out.

The waitress froze, a frown of confusion stuck on her face. Then without warning she burst into laughter, "Good one Miss Montague. I'll be back in just a minute with those bottles." She walked off still laughing while inside calculating her commission off of all the bottles she had just sold.

Again Daniel looked over at Azailah, she was a little better at reading her friend, "Girl what's up with you? We gotta get dat bottle service, otherwise they'll think we're skazzes  "

Panic. Was her reputation to fall as well? She frantically shook her head her face turning pale. I'm not feeling well. I gotta go. Without waiting for a reply she chased down the waitress, told her to cancel and quickly rushed out of the building.

If possible, and away from prying eyes she'll go invisible to escape from Daniel and other eyes.

Once outside and down the street it was easy to go invisible without anyone noticing. This part of the street, just a few hundred yards from a prosperous club, was filled with the homeless and dejected. The bright lights from the club's exterior outlined the faces of broken men and women. The men and women so often overlooked in the world.

Azailah moved from her initial reaction of disgust at the filth around her and the people within it, to one of sorrow. She looked at the women and began to see a person. What happened? How did they end up this way? Those questions quickly led to a realization. "I could end up this way...."

Remaining in her mask of invisibility she slowly walked, for the first time absorbing the world and reality around her.

The streets in this neighborhood were covered in garbage. The walls all spray painted in various gang tags. A broken lifeless body laid in a corner, pushed aside so the the residents could continues their lives, what remained of them. In the distance gunfire rang out, but no sirens rose up to answer them. There was no money here, and for that crime nobody seemed to care.

A little boy stood on a corner. Through the layers of dirt it was easy to see that he still couldn't have been more than ten. A car pulled up and motioned the boy over. A few seconds later it drove off, the occupants happily laughing at the drugs the just scored as loud music faded along with the car into the distance. The boy ran back to a man that had been hovering unseen in the shadows. The boy gave him what little money he had just made the ran back to the corner, awaiting another customer.

Azailah shivered. How had she gone so long without even realizing this type of life exsisted? And jut down from where she always hung out...

She will make her way to a safer district then catch a cab home.

The cab takes her back to her apartment which, compared to what she had just been seeing, was a nice warm place to sleep and call her own.

Anything until your next tour?

Her phone rings off the hook, so to speak, for most of her time off after the club incident. Daniel and other friends wanting to know if she was ok. Daniel mostly wanting to know why she'd cancelled the drinks.

When she got back to the common room of her team a few members were there already, notably Harley and Gravel who were cleaning their weapons. Harley looked up at her, Welcome back. We were taking bets about whether or not you were coming back.

Harley shrugged, Me. Sarge said you'd be back, I didn't think you would. Oh well. She went back to cleaning her weapon, as if she really didn't care one way or the other, which she probably didn't.
