“Ow. Ow.” >Aria hissed, pulling another shard of glass out of her bloody sole.>”So what did we learn?” Sunset asked smugly.>Aria glared at her, then leaned back against the wall of the alley they were in. She ruffled through her pockets for a moment, producing a cigarette and lighter.
“Whatever.”>She flicked the catch, raising the tiny flame to her cig.
“I’d offer you one,” she said, exhaling a lungful of smoke, “but, y’know, you’re kind of a bitch.”>Sunset rolled her eyes. “I’m not the one knocking on people's windows in the middle of the night.”>Aria shrugged.>”Anyway, I don’t smoke.” She eyed the glowing cherry between Aria’s fingers. “Those things’ll kill you, you know.”>Aria laughed.
“Yep.”>She took another drag. >Sunset shifted, shuffling her feet.>She glanced around at the empty railyard.>”So, what are we doing here?”>She held up a hand to forestall Aria’s retort.>”If you say ‘crimes’ I’m gonna hit you.”>Aria’s eyes rolled back as she tilted her head in thought.
“Mmm… illegal activities.”>”Aria…” Sunset said warningly.>Aria huffed.
