(Day 2 in the Crack Den) I woke sometime during the night to the sound of someone rummaging through my bags. I guess when you live on the streets, you get a sense of where you can find “treasure.” It was a young kid and as soon as I snatched the bag from his hands, muttering “scram kid,” he gave me a wide-eyed look and took off. I figured I better get on my way since I’m sure he would be bringing back friends soon and they’d be much larger and not so easily frightened. I went through my bag and tried out some clothes that I’d picked up at Ydea Style - free gifts for their members. I slipped on the Neal outfit, which included white-belted jeans, a rolled-up sleeve buttoned shirt with button-flap pockets, and sneakers. I looked myself over and although I looked sharp in it, I realized that with the white belt I might as well advertise my presence with a neon sign.
I dug further into the bag and found another member gift outfit from Ydea… this one called Dalton. Dalton and Neil are the latest gift releases and I found them on their back wall in the main store. Dalton’s outfit included some nice looking ripped jeans and a loosely buttoned long-sleeved shirt that blended in better for this part of town. It also came with shoes more suitable for running and a razor necklace – both of which might come in handy. As I made my way along the deserted streets in the pre-dawn twilight, I noticed the light of a nearby street lamp glinting off my necklace and made me realize… what am I thinking? I swapped it out and put on another necklace that I picked up as a free member gift from Grasp. This one had a skull and cross, which might not have been as badass-looking as a razor blade but at least it couldn’t be used against me.
Not wanting to litter, I tossed the razor blade in a nearby trash can and realized the folly of my actions when the “clank” of the necklace hitting the bottom of the can at that time in the morning sounded like someone banging a gong. Sure enough, my buddy from the day before (still wearing the white vest) popped out of a nearby doorway and said, “if it isn’t my fashion consultant… nice threads.” I didn’t even wait. I stripped down and handed him all of my clothes and to my surprise he handed me his jeans. He pointed up the street and said, “I’d go that way if I were you.” So half naked, in an Akeruka skin “Neo” (free member gift this month), I finally escaped the crime-ridden streets of Crack Den and made my way back to the safety of SL shops… well ok.. relative safety.
Thank you for the great tip on this skin, Love!
