Neon Star Rising (BL)

Police service subscribers don\'t want you here

faint. ”

Was that what hed been about to do?

He felt too dizzy to focus on any one thing, there was so much information around him that his brain was struggling to process all of it.

”The city will do that to you, ” she said with a snort, when Ivo finally managed to straighten himself up, and stop feeling like he was going to throw up.

”Where the ** did you come from? ” Davi asked, walking past him and down the paved sidewalk. Even though the question was directed at Ivo, it was clear Davi didn expect him to answer.

Which was a good thing because Ivo wouldn know how to.

He was still looking at Davis back in confusion when he saw his shoulders tense.

Following his line of vision, he found three people in armoured gear, wearing helmets with flashing visors, and reinforced exoskelotons around their backs and legs. They were surrounding an elderly man behind a food cart.

”You have been told to vacate the premises, ” one of the armoured people said, voice sounding muffled and metallic behind his reflective helmet. ”Failure to comply will result in arrest and fines. ”

The elderly man tried to plead with them. Ivo could see he was missing an arm, which had been haphazardly substituted with a mechanical replacement that looked one size too small for him. ”Im just trying to sell my food. Its good food, everyone likes it in Liberdade. ”

Another of the armoured guards nudged the man with the back of his gun. ”We were called due to complaints from a Police Service subscriber, you are not wanted here, nor is your food. ”

”Come on man, the people here can afford real food, you think theyd want to eat your synth shit? ” another said, and all three of them laughed.

Davi was looking on at the scene with his fists closed at his side. Alina linked their arms together and pulled him along. ”Keep walking, now is not the time. ”

Reluctantly, he followed her. Ivo couldn stop himself from looking back as the guards dragged the elderly man away, leaving his cart behind on the sidewalk.

A few meters down the paved sidewalk the streets started changing. The gleaming cleanliness of the cobblestone sidewalks gave way to cement pavement, cracked and missing altogether in places. The glittering storefronts with flashing images and elegant displays were replaced by metal shutters and peeling adverts. In prefab metal blocks, rusty metal sliding doors made customers shoulder them open when walking in or out of stores.

Here, their bulky dawn jackets started attracting attention. They no longer fit in. Alina quickly took hers off and folded it under her arm.

Davi came to a stop in front of an indigo motorcycle parked against a lightpost in the middle of the cracked sidewalk, right next to an overfilled trashcan.

”Where to? ” he asked Alina, climbing onto the bike.

She blew a large breath and looked into the distance, thinking. ”Well, I need titty pills. We could go to O bicho come, and regroup there. ”

Davi touched his hand to the bikes central control panel and it lit up. ”Sounds good. ” He nodded to Ivo. ”Hop in. ”

Ivo looked from the bikes passenger seat to Alina. ”How about her? ”

Alina snorted. ”Unlike you I can handle these streets. ”

She saluted Davi with two fingers to her forehead and disappeared around a dark corner.
