    "Job?" Lately, Matthias has found his perception of the world not nearly as focused as he had thought. Perhaps, despite his best attempts to gain as much insight into what was going on around him, there was still much that he had been sheltered from. Or perhaps he has become a creature of habit, living a life that was comfortable for him but not much more than that. Either way, it was a shakeup that made him uneasy yet even more curious.

    : Just observing.: “ Plus not all of us city folk are soft. Still tough jobs exist and everything. I worked as a farmer on the out skirts as a child, junk collector, construction, and so forth. Recently got management job and tried my hand with my hobby. Yeah, not all of uscc BBC are big babies who do nothing and leech off society.”
    Continuing to saw through the potato with a breadknife, Kinu carved its mealy flesh into oddly angled, starlike shapes.

    "Well, well," she said, "sounds like someone's been wanderin' without a place to settle. Why's that?"

    Owen walks in, nodding.

    “I followed my nose. A most impressive spread.”

    Acknowledging him and nods. “ She did good, I provided the potatoes I guess?” As that was his job while they toured.

    "Brilliant observation Gumsh- hey wait a second! Who you callin' 'rambunctious' you--" she shot back, eyes darting over Owen's person, "...popgun-slinging..." yeah....yeah...! "...left-handed..." ...hey, what...? "...flatfoot?"

    Silently, she dropped the potato slices into a vat of boiling chicken fat with a sharp hiss.

    Got him.

    Owen smiles.

    “Pretty sure power driving someone through a glass ceiling is the textbook definition of ‘rambunctious’. I, meanwhile, am perfectly calm and not at all prone to bouts of foolish bravado and chivalry.”

    He grins and gestures.

    “ Poor. When your poor your border line outlander to “ Society.” But yeah, never really cared. Just had my hand trying to have a interesting life. Aside that yeah, my grandma died, found her diary on spells, still studying them. Tried my hand at writing. Although a certain Hell’s Brigade publishing always outdid me, so went back to the family business along with paper pushing. Despite desk job, train at least two hours a day. Anything else? I got stories to tell, if you got the time and interest.”
