“Okay we’re going.” Nichi was turned, but she knew he had a smug look slapped on his face.. She turned around and snatched the phone from him.
“No, we’re not.” She gripped the phone tight, speaking into it, glaring at Jack with all her might. How dare you, how dare you she thought. “Why are you so afraid?” the phone spoke, it made her infuriated. She ended the phone call.
“Idiot.” She said under her breath. Then her mood quickly changed, and she shook her head and smiled.
“Well, now that that’s out of the way let’s go do your- whatever you’re doing...” Jack gestured the paint can in Nichi’s hand.
“Let’s go.” her voice was airy and relieved. She unlocked the door and grabbed Jack’s hand. She sneakingly led him through the hallways, down the stairs, to the garage, opened the door, out of the house, and onto the street. Soon they came to a wall, covered in spray paint and drawings of the empress. It had yellow caution tape draped over it and a small sign that said, “No cameras” the wall had a picture of the empress. Nichi shook the red paint can, staring endlessly at the wall. She glanced at Jack, then she looked at the camera that was around her neck. Jack was pacing back and forth, curious, or... amazed.. Maybe, both? She drew large streaks on the wall, it spread red paint over the wall covering the old paint. It eventually wrote, in big, red letters, “We are free”. Jack gave her an odd look. She pulled out her camera and took a picture of her new art. Then, the sounds of sirens beamed in the distance, red and blue lights flickering all around them. Nichi Botsu was not in panic, for she knew if she ran, they’d catch her. This was all part of the plan. Jack didn’t seem to take value in this thought and darted in the opposites direction.
“Put your hands on top of your head!” The police screamed. She did as she was told and slowly rested her hands atop her head. She then, smiled. Maybe for pain, or maybe for envy. She didn’t know.
“Drop the paint!” She obeyed and the can clattered to the ground. “Good, now, come with us, this is the last time we pick up another hooligan taking pictures of an area that isn’t allowed to be viewed.” He gestured toward a car she couldn’t see, due to the blue and red lights.
