It was times like these that made Irey think that maybe she should be trying to find a way back home.
It was raining, not the bothersome drizzle that could easily be forgotten, not the soft rain so welcome after a hot summer day, but a harsh and pounding rain that made one think the sky had sprung a leak. The redhead could barely see two feet in front of her face. She definitely couldn’t hear anything other than the constant beating of water on concrete. She had put on a jacket earlier to keep herself dry, but that was already soaked through. It was far past time to find shelter.
The area of the city she found herself in was pretty far off the beaten track. It might as well have been a ghost town for all the people around. Half the buildings were abandoned and the other half were in varying states of disrepair. It suited her needs fair enough, though. She just needed to find an empty one that was dry. With a quick burst of superspeed she’d surveyed the possible buildings and had found one that nobody seemed to have claimed.
All entrances were boarded up and there was a bright ‘CONDEMNED’ notice where the front door should have been, but the building itself seemed to be in decent shape. Or at least the roof was working, and that was all Irey needed at the moment. Her form blurred as she vibrated, raindrops skipping across her like a hotplate, and with a light humming sound she made it right through the boarded up entrance.
Inside was quieter and thankfully dry. She vibrated again to get some of the rain off, half of it leaving as steam and half falling through her and onto the ground, leaving a small puddle. The aftermath left her hair frizzled and static-y but it wasn’t like anyone was watching and being dry was a bit more important due to the chill.
That done, Irey stretched to get a few kinks out and walked forward to get settled in her home for the night.
She really hadn’t expected anyone else to be there.
