Richie "Sergei" Redford

Begrudged Friendship

Recommended Posts

Richie had chosen to stay in the station, in case Kaella did come back. He figured he'd give her a few days before he'd find another job. He still didn't like, or trust her but he felt obligated to help her. He figured if Tonka was out on her own he'd want someone to look after her like he was considering doing for Kaella.

So he took on a regular schedule, bought himself some more paper and took his time in an attempt to "relax".

It was a futile effort but he managed. It was the day that he was feeling that she found friends and wasn't coming back that he was packing up that the girl would show back up in his life.

Kae's initial venture in search of anyone familiar was fruitless as she made her way through the nearby stations she was able to access. Finally she reached a point where she could go no further. Not without accessing dangerous routes she felt the others would have avoided. By that point the small amount of bullets in her pocket were running out. 

Since Hanza was her home territory, picking pockets wasn't really an option. She rarely ever took that sort of risk, given that it was beneficial to have some place safe to retreat to. In the end she decided to turn around and head back the other way. Maybe she'd run into someone she'd missed the first time, after all, and she needed to find some kind of work, 

By the time she returned there was still no sign of the others. Kae was feeling melancholy and alone as she picked her way through the market, looking for any of the traders that frequently had courier work to offer. She figured staying on the move was the smart choice right now.

She was fairly distracted and the sudden voice right behind her caused Kae to jump with a muffled expletive and turn. She huffed softly as she recognized Sergei, shaking her head, "Not yet," she sighed. 

She knew the youngest, ergo most vulnerable, of their rag tag band were locked in the station. That was a constant source of anxiety, made worse by the sporadic rumors that served as her only updates on the station. They were trapped there. Part of Kae hoped Vanja was there to look after her. Another part felt awful for that, and hoped Vanja was safe elsewhere - but that would mean the children were essentially alone.

Richie stood there debating if he should follow her but decided against it for the moment letting her disappear into the crowd. He figured with how crowded the place was with Prospect closed down that she'd likely steal her way to a meal and a bed. Or.... the thought put a bitter taste in his mouth so he licked his lips and rolled his shoulders. He continued to purchase the supplies he'd need to go on a trip out. He either needed to go to the surface and find some stuff to sell or he'd find someone or something to escort through the metro.

They would next cross paths some hours later. 

Kae had found a job as a courier. A high paying one that involved a dash across the surface, and then back. The vendor paid half up front, and she felt like she might have been floating from relief and excitement if not for the weight of the bullets in her pocket. She was both thrilled and terrified by the prospect of being up top again as she approached the air locks with her passport out.
