Blaise rolled up her sleeves as a plan formed within her mind. No way is she gonna pass up the chance to create some chaos! With a grin, she heads into the alleyway beside the bar, pulling out a box of matches from her pocket before striking it and throwing it into the trashcan. She goes around the other side of the building to avoid suspicion, nearly tripping on a brick as she exited the alley.
Her grin widened as she picked it up, her eyes zoning in on the shop across the street. It was a jewelry store, so it most definitely had an alarm system. She cocks her arm back and throws the brick across the street, breaking the window. As a finale, she kicked a car on the side of the road with her boot, setting off the car alarm.
The chaos spread to the others waiting outside in the cold, and soon there was a full-on riot going on outside the bar! Meanwhile, her bosses were able to take back what had been stolen from them and her family left the scene before the cops could arrive.
Tony, a large sim that was one step higher on the social ladder within the family, sent her a grin. “Good job, kid.”
Her eyes narrowed at him. She hated to be called a kid, but she bit her tongue and accepted it because she was in high spirits after the successful heist.
It was almost one in the morning when Blaise made it back to her apartment building, stifling a yawn as she stepped onto the elevator. It lurched to a stop, the doors dinging as they slid open. She stepped out only to pause, eyes narrowing at the man that stood at the end of the hall.
He was tall and thin, dressed from the neck down in all black. His hair was grey and parted to the left. Now, on this floor, there are only two residents – herself and Heriberto. Was this man a friend of his? It seemed unlikely to her.
“Can I help you?”
The man turned, his dark blue eyes meeting her green ones.
“Hello there,” he sent her a charming smile, his eyes glinting in the light of the hallway. “I just wanted to take the chance to welcome you to the community.”
She raised a brow suspiciously. “Do you always go prowling around in the middle of the night?”
He chuckled. “I do. I find… peace within the night.” His eyes flickered to her neck for a brief moment. “And yourself?”
She hummed, folding her arms over her chest. “Work. Now if you don’t mind, I’d like to get some sleep.”
“But of course, my apologies for keeping you.”
As she passed by him, he took a deep whiff of her scent, his eyes flashing as he watched her enter her apartment. His tongue darted out to wet his lips. ‘What a lovely neck she has and she smells so… delectable,’ The man turned into a bat and flew out through the open window at the end of the hall.
