New Faces, Old Faces (Modern!AU closed thread with xirlos-the-paradox)
It was an average, yet rainy day in the city of Lordran. The streets hustled and bustled with people running to and fro, scurrying to keep pace with their oh so busy lives. Cars honked in traffic, and a crime happened every twenty seconds, it seemed. But it was a pretty town, with good and bad. In a personal condo near the center of the city lied a champion MMA fighter. She had won two titles, and was currently training for her next fight. Her name was Tara Reicod, but she was best known for her stage name: “Greed."
She stood there by the rainy window, overlooking the city. A playlist of music boomed from the tv in her room as she kept landing punches against the bag. She had to win this time, she had to win! One two, one two. Punch after punch landed against the bag until finally she decided to have a break. She walked away from the towards the kitchen, panting and sweating from all the effort. As soon as she opened the fridge though, the phone started ringing. ”…really?“ she groaned to herself as she grabbed a water bottle and walked over to where the receiver was hooked in. She usually had her cell phone, but kept the home phone for business. Guess this was business. With a groan, she hit the "answer” key, then the the “speaker” key as she walked over to the nearby window, untwisting the bottle cap. “Who’s calling?” she called, closing her eyes and gulping down the water.
