~Argentum Clocks and Aurum Lockets~
I'm a runner, always have and always will be.
I think I've chased, challenged and ran away from anything and everything. I've raced with people at the park and down the street, challenged bikes and cars and trains, chased after the kitten and the puppy, the fireflies and the butterflies, the clouds that float by and the sun that lights the sky.
Running and chasing is almost the same thing to me now, seeing as I do so much of both.
In fact, I think I’ve chased more things than I have challenged or fled from. Like my dreams of flying; I’ve been chasing that for a long while now. But I remember chasing something even before the sky: my brother. Since I was little, there was always the need for me to live up to what he had accomplished, to gain the same respect he had earned from others.
Only thing is, I'm running in the other way now. Talon Karrde is now on my list of what I’ve ran away from. That doesn't mean I'm not a runner anymore. Quite on the contrary! The Argentums have given me a new reason to run.
Two gangs have taken power on this skylet; the Argentums and the Aurums. Each is represented by an object and both want the other dead and gone. The game's a lot more organized then the adults think; we maybe young, but we're ready to make waves.
Talon would have never approved. But as an Argentum, I finally have a role in the grand scheme of everything instead of waiting around. Waiting to see when he would leave me just like all the other relationships down the dusty road.
Marking is just one of my jobs. I'm the one that’s been painting the silver clocks all around town; they're everywhere now, along with those horrid golden lockets. But I do other things too, like run messages and deliver goods; things that require speed but can't be noticed.
I've been taking a punch or two now that things between the goldies and the silvers have been heating up. I don't know where this is going but I'm not leaving the Argentums no matter what. They're like a steady stone wall I can lean on; a replacement from the brother I'm running away from.
In fact, I'm excited to see what'll happen next.
((Just a plot for a troubled youth like Julia. I really want to go on with this too..Heh, lets see where I can get with it all))
