The man nodded. Nodded again. “Here’s half now - ten thousand. The rest when she’s gone.”
The man laid the envelope at Vi’s free hand. Drank his entire beer. Left quickly.
Vi looked up, looked through the large plate glass that acted as a window front to the bar, but the man was long gone, disappearing into the neon streets of Zaun. Vi popped the envelope open, found a wad of bills and a 5x7 photograph. The picture was of a woman, staring straight into the camera - dark navy hair, face mostly sharp angles, an intelligent gleam to blue eyes.
Vi shuddered out a breath, downed the rest of her second beer, and flipped the photo of the woman marked for death over.

In a little bar tucked away in the nation soon to be named Zaun, five kids dream of revolution. These are the moments that turned the dream to action, that pushed the five of them from gutter trash to folk heroes.

“-like someone’s chasing,” Vi finished, and the two smiled at each other - soft smiles, endearing smiles.
“Yeah,” Caitlyn breathed.
“Okay, so,” Vi said, “we can still hang out and stuff. But our first date-”
“-will be one week from today,” Caitlyn finished.
Caitlyn nodded. “Sounds great.”
