"Well i gotta get my parents out of jail somehow." Leilani responded to Jacoby. "Least i had the element of surprise but now i gotta rethink everything...Word's gonna spread fast with the D.U.P. going around like they are right now." Leilani now had her face in her hands. "Sure i took a thing or two here and there...but it was all because i needed it."
Abbi looked around. "No one'll ever get people like me...coming here turned into a living nightmare but now i'm fighting back against it. Any DUP, protester or cop comes after me they get a taste of neon..." her voice somewhat cold. "I just wanted to go home but could i...no, not like everyone else at least. Beg, steal, lie and cheat...it's the only way i'll have any hope of escape."
Laura nodded "Good, then i can share with you." she cleared her throat. "I'm actually a member of a group known as P.A.C.C., it stands for People Against Conduit Cruelty. We hold up signs and protest against DUP actions against conduits, we're even trying to cycle a movement to shut down Curden Cay. I'm mostly sharing my story tonight at this rally..."
Blades nodded "Good to see like you then, I don't think conduits are all bad after all..." his eyes darting around a bit. Helena came back with his milkshake "Thank you very much..."
Helena had overheard Laura talking "I personally don't have a view on zhese 'conduits' of vich you speak but i do not like vhat ze DUP is doing here in the city. Poking into our everyday lives like zis..." Laura smiled then you should come to the rally tonight, we're trying to help end all of...this.." Helena nodded "I vill...consider it..."
(Alright DUPs, time for your entrance.) (Undisclosed location, roughly fifty miles away from Pittsburgh)
It was a very large meeting room, tile floor and white walls. The speaker, a Tiger in a full suit with military decor from his tours and service. "Fellow agents, brave men and women...allow me to be the first to commend you all for your bravery and service. Chasing after these bio-terrorists and making the world safer is not an easy task, but alas it must be done." The large powerpoint behind him lit up with the D.U.P. logo. "We are the ones who do the dirty work...the street cleaners and peacekeepers..." Ed, Jillian, and Kyrios sat in the row with the rest of their squadron.
