North City was a wonderful place. Bella’s home away from home, the city streets and countless shops were where she felt most comfortable these days. Whether it was sun or rain that leapt down from the sky she found her spirits high. There was just something about the hustle and bustle of city life that helped to fuel her. All this aside, she was not so blind to see that her city suffered from the same thing as so many others, a “downtown.”
By design or by environment, each and every city always developed a section that was considered the least savory. While the range of the word varied from place to place, it was often hand in hand with the dangerous part of town. Rundown buildings, sketchy individuals and higher crime rates, each of these places was in constant need of attention. Today, on this chilly but sunny evening, Bella was the one that chose to give it her attention. She didn’t patrol it streets or check its back alleys, no. The energetic redhead was here to try and find the good in those so commonly associated with the bad.
Although she was still in the process of locating a new establishment to house the Pride Troopers, that didn’t mean she still wasn’t concerned with bolstering their ranks. On a side street, laden with those returning home from work, Bella attempted to hand out fliers. Very similar to the ones spilled all over the street days before, this stack of papers was held tightly in her left arm, one copy in her right so that she could offer it to those interested. Dressed in her button down shirt, black pants and PT emblazoned jacket, she tried to spread the word. The only problem was, no one seemed to give two hoots.
”How about you, Sir? Care to hear a little bit about the PT?” She asked of a lanky fellow as he attempted to step his way around her. Arm extended in an attempt to hand over her flier, the only reaction that came her way was a cold glare, lipstick coated lips curled into a scowl. Oops, that was a woman!
Wincing at the realization she let that one go, realizing it was likely on her that time. Bella recovered quickly though and moved onto the next, but this man (and she was sure this time) wanted nothing to do with her. Heck, he even pretended not to hear her. Momentary pout on her face she then moved to the next and the next…and the next. Each interaction was one sided, her peppy attitude lost on these folks either because of their exhaustion from a hard day’s work or their lack of care. It had to be the former, right?
The young woman refused to admit defeat. No matter how grumpy or how disinterested people appeared to be, she wasn’t about to relent. There was good to be found here. Amongst the dirty faces and grumbles there had to be someone she could get through to, some diamond in the rough. All it took was effort and she would find them. In her heart she knew she was correct. People were born good, there was no way that wasn’t true. Determined to prove it she approached another prospect.
”And how about you? Would you be interested in joining the Pride Troopers? I assure you there is plenty of excitement to be found in the hunt for justice.”
Her voice raised a little to try and catch his attention, the fellow she spoke to already past her and on his way towards the upcoming crosswalk. She wasn’t going to let this one ignore her completely. Even a “No” would suffice, at least it was acknowledgement. Stepping after the dark skinned fellow, his long strides threatening to allow him a quick escape, Bella waved the paper in her hand. So zealous in her attempt to spread the world, his 8 foot frame didn’t even cause her to hesitate.
