Or only in my head?

Was it real?

Tag: RUBY BLACKWOOD Notes: WoopWoop
In one of the corners of the labs in the university sat Keller by herself, consumed in the work laying infront of her. She had used hours on just building together different models of prostethics, testing how they worked together, what piece strengthened the other, gave more agility or simply to find out what didn't work together. It was all something she had to do in her work to one day develope a working inner ear and nerve which could restore her hearing, and others. Imagine how many she would be able to help, not only herself, but all the people who have lost their hearing in an accident, from sickness or maybe even genetically from birth. Andrea believed she'd acchieve her goal one day, she had already started to work on the robotics, finding out what she could use, couldn't use and such. It was a long process, but in time a result would hopefully appear.

Hours had passed, she noticed because it had become darker outside, which meant she had probably spent a few hours overtime. She rotated her hand, touching the datapad, a device she had purchased ages ago, to check the time. It was already passed 9 pm, this surprised her, she hadn't eaten food since lunchtime and only now became aware of how many hours had passed. She needed food, but she didn't have with her any money, so she couldn't buy any at the university. Andrea therefor placed all the robotics infront of her, pieces she had bought and pieces donated by the university, in her bag and decided to bring them home to continue her work at her desk at home. Tons of ideas ran through her mind and she couldn't stop now. Once everything was in her bag, she would leave the lab and exit the university.

It wasn't a super long walk back to her loft apartment, which was one of many reasons she didn't use money on public transport or buy a hoover car. She saved money by walking, and she also got a small daily excersize, only wins. She turned a corner heading into a smaller alley. Usually when taking this turn it was more lighting and plenty of other people walking past, however now, when the clock was passed 9 pm, and most had wen thome from their work, eating dinner with their families, the streets where empty. Andrea took a good hold of her bag and continued to walk, it was only a few meters until the next turn and she would be at the street she lived in.

One of many things people tend to assume when people say they're deaf is that they don't hear anything, nada, nothing. In Andrea's case it was slightly different, she always had this sound in her ear, like a high pitched noice. It was common amongst those who'd become deaf later in life, however it wasn't something that she cared much about. But sometimes she could hear the low pitched sounds, like a deep bass sound from music, however many doctors meant it was only the vibrations she felt, that she didn't hear the sound. However one thing was clear, and it was the fact that footsteps on asphalt, was something she did not hear.

Suddenly, out of the dark had two dark figures jumped out grabbing Andrea by her shoulders and throwing her towards the brick wall, shoulder first. She opened her mouth in a scream, not hearing herself screaming, however feeling her throat vibrate, and a sharp pain in her shoulder. Everything happend very quickly, one of the hooded tall men rushed to her and pressed one of his hands on her shoulder, holding her to the wall with such a power, she had no chance to move and the other was placed over her mouth silencing her. Andrea's heart raised, was this how her evening would end? She couldn't die like this? At least he doesn't seem to have a knife. That was thoughts that ran through her mind the next few seconds. What would they do? Rape her? Beat her up? Steal all her work? She couldn't see his eyes but she saw his yaw moving with such an intensity, he was probably asking for something, but it was too dark for her lense to catch what the lips where saying. The second man also seemed to be yelling somthing to the man pinning Andrea down. She struggled trying to get out of his grip, attempting to move from side to side, however only to gain a hit to her head, splitting her lip.

It was during night like these, when the light is barely cast onto the streets and when citizens are barely going through the city, that Ruby liked to go outside and scout for new canvases.For her, a canvas could mean so much, from a small surface in her home, in her intimacy, to the whole city at her feet. She liked venturing out at night, especially since solitarity as she knew it was addicting, and nothing quite compared to this multitude of experiences felt at once. The light breeze, the moonlight, a clean wall that she was planning to use as her newest canvas, to lay paint on and make the people wonder who caused all these pieces of art to pop up overnight in Novas - it was fullfilling.

However, not all nights were so peaceful. Especially not when signs of trouble were heard ahead of their time, in the sense of a night Grey patrol. Maybe she should have stayed indoors tonight? Such a boring thought.

The patrol wasnt the only presence in the streets, and as Ruby sat secretly inside a side-alley, glued to the shadow of the buildings whenever someone passed by, she came to make out the sounds of several people approaching - then an altercation which made her raise her guard and turn more alert as part of her Gray duty. However, she had no Grey equipment with her, no gun, no cuffs, no badge, nothing to scare off armed attackers if it was needed. She waited until the defenseless woman came closer to the corner of the building to be able to help, and just then the attackers got startled by another Grey patrol passing by.

They panicked, shouting at each other like morons while trying to keep the girl there to rob her or something, and when the man holding her gave an opening and let go, to step back and go check out how close the Greys were, Ruby took that opening and forcefully grabbed the woman by her arm and clasped a hand onto her mouth, to pull her into the side alley, as far from the light of the street as possible.

The two men argued, making a half assed plan where to rush to, then freaked out and got angry when their prey was gone, figuring she might have ran off, so they prpceeded to run after her as well - only to pass by her alley unknowingly, Grey patrol now having spotted them and chasing the runners too.

Meanwhile, struggling to keep the woman silent and safe in that corner, Ruby tried reassuring her that she was trying to help her, not attacking or startling her further and just trying to keep her still. "Be quiet, they're almost gone!"

The man was still holding her, looking to his companion shouting something before pointing around, the grip loosened lightly and he gave Andrea a small shove as he stepped away in something what seemed like fury. Andrea's heart was raising, it was dark, and she didn't have an overview over the scene at all. All she knew was that she wasn't the only one in panic. The very next second, someone else had grabbed hold of her wrist, dragging the short blonde away from the scene. Andrea made muffled sounds she herself couldn't hear, but she knew she made due the vibration in her throat and due to the way she had to breath through the fingers holding her mouth.

Suddenly they stopped, she'd been moved away from the men who had first attacked her. The adrenaline was still pumping through Andrea's system, she still didn't have any overview, and she still didn't know who had dragged her away. This is why she hated the dark and how humans had developed, way to dependent on light, and when the hearing is gone, darkness can be catastrophic. Who had dragged her away? Was it someone who worked with them? Was she taken into the darker part of the alley to get murdered?! The last thought made her body take action as soon as the thought ran through her brain.

The moment the figure had released some of the pressure on her body, not hearing the words that was attempted to calm her down. Instead Andrea would attempt to throw herself away from the figure, and thereafter use the bag that amazingly enough still hung on her shoulder to hit the female figure. In that second she didn't think about all the expensive tech in her bag. She could always work new hours and make new tech, she did not want to die that night, better safe and sorry than dead.

It was unbelievable, even after telling her to quiet down so the attackers could leave, this woman was still tryig to get herself murdered, or worse. What was it with Colors and having a hard time obeying Greys sometimes? Did they not like being safe?

Although, it was understandable, since she couldnt see much in this shadow. The next thing Ruby knew was that the curly haired woman pushed herself away and began swinging her bag towards her.

Ruby used her hands to defend herself from the bag at first, before understanding that the other party didnt understand she meant no harm, only to then catch the bag in her hands to stop it from being swung again. Then, she'd jerk it closer to her as a wake up call for the woman to cease this. Ruby then shushed her, index finder against her lips, still keeping a tight grip on the bag with one hand. "Stop that! Look." The same finger then went in the direction of the attackers, to show that they were scuttering away and that other shadows were approaching.

Andrea didn't think over the fact that the woman she just tried to hit with her bag probably was trained in combat, so that if she wanted to hurt or stop Andrea, the green wouldn't have been able to get out of her grip. The green opened her mouth in reaction , both surprised and disappointed, to when the woman took the bag out of her hands to stop Andrea from throwing a hit at her again.

The woman grabbed Andrea and jerked her forward, giving a gasp as she moved. When the woman used her index finger to sign a hush, with a following point in the direction of the corner, the green would turn her gaze in the very same direction, understanding that the figure in front of her probably only wanted to help, and had just saved her from a very bad situation.

Andrea gave a relieved sigh and almost embarrassed sigh due the misunderstanding, and turned towards the woman again, lifting a finger to her right ear. "I'm so sorry, I'm deaf" she tried to whisper, but could never be sure if she did, since she couldn't hear her own voice like hearing people did. Andrea didn't know what to do next, she didn't feel like talking at the moment, seeing as there was other strange shadows approaching, and she didn't know if they were friendly or not. But all she knew was that she had to thank the woman properly when the situation was over, because if she managed not to damage the tech she had in her bag, the woman would have spared her hours of work, and thousands of dollars, and let's not forget, probably her life too.

After the very stressful situation that went on and as the two struggled to understand each other, a moment of calm had finally settled in and allowed the two women to actually see eye to eye for once.

The curly haired stranger finally settled down from all the fighting back against the wrong person and she gestured to her..head, no, her ear? Then mumbled something - Ruby could only make out the sorry part and she tried reading on the woman's lips, but in this darkness it was a miracle if she could see much. It didn't take much to put two and two together though, and Ruby figured that the woman was either calling her crazy with the head pointing, or she was saying she couldnt understand. So why couldnt someone understand a loud whisper? Not to mention that she looked particularly disoriented… it was safe to say that Ruby believed the woman to be deaf. She didnt get the details though, obviously.

Her head cocked to the side like a puppy, raised her brows when the realization kicked in, then nodded and motioned for the girl to move closer - away from the mouth of the alley. That way they could finally stop trying to get murdered.

The shadows grew and grew as two Grey officers patrolled the streets at night and on their way they went, to the infractors’ misfortune, in the same way as them. Voices and rushed footsteps could be heard moments later and Ruby’s best bet was that the two parties had a small run-in with each other. It wasnt their concern anymore now though, and the street was once more safe for the two of them.

Then, after nothing else could be heard, Ruby pushed herself from against the shadowed wall she was leaned on and took a few steps to the exit of the alley, head peeking to check out if it was all clear to come out. Not even one hobo on the street. Bingo.

She turned and motioned for the stranger to follow, relaxing in body language and for now leaving her backpack of spray paint supplies deep in the alley, with her unfinished mural. ”You’re all good now.” Wait, she was deaf.. Well, Ruby didnt know sign language! So she just gave a thumbs up and shrugged, with a sorry smile that she couldnt communicate somehow else.
