Dark. Dusty. Quiet. If Khat had to describe Kairo Town using only three words, those are the words that she would use. Every time the Black Arboks visited Kairo, she was continually surprised at how much dust there was. This town was literally like one of those old cowboy towns that you see in western movies, where people visit the saloon after a long day of work on the ranch, and where people willingly have gunfights in the street. She supposed the people here must have liked being dusty, because no matter how hard she tried she couldn't get the dust off of her.
'Maybe that's the real reason this place is a ghost town,' she thought as she approached her mark. It was an apartment complex, only three stories tall. Her goal was to get to the third story, sneak in, find some rare stone called benitoite, and get out. Or at least, that was the gist of it. She had to make sure it was the correct gemstone of course, and from the sound of how rare it was, she would need to take extra security precautions.
She walked to the side of the building and glanced up at the fire escape. That would most likely be the easiest way to get in - since the bottom was so far off the ground, it was probably rare that someone would be able to reach it and climb up, so why bother locking the window? Unlike most people, though, she had a giant staff with her, which would easily allow her to pull the escape down.
Before she did so, she decided to double check that she had everything she needed. Kneeling, she set her staff on the ground and pulled her backpack off of her shoulders. Opening it, she first pulled out a pokeball, releasing her weedle. The bug pokemon looked up at her silently. "Guard duty," she muttered to the bug, and she nodded, turning around and looking about the small, dusty alley they were in. Qadira wasn't the strongest pokemon of the bunch, but she was one of the quietest and most likely to obey her commands, and right now that was what she needed.
She pushed her other pokeballs to the side of the bag and rifled through the rest. A crowbar, wire cutters, a center hole punch, a screwdriver, among other things. It was all stuff that she had gathered over the years that she found useful in most theft situations. Then, at the very bottom were her two eggs, wrapped in a large black blanket to protect them. She unwrapped the top of the blanket, making sure there weren't any cracks yet, and then wrapped it back up and put her supplies back into her bag.
She stood, glanced over to Qadira to make sure she was still on alert, and then looked up at the fire escape. She picked up her staff and turned it over so that the key-end was facing up. Carefully so as not to bang the metal staff on the metal fire escape, she hooked it onto the escape and tugged down expecting it to fall down to the earth.
Annoyed, she rubbed the black balaclava that covered her head and face and then began to search for any part of the fire escape that jutted out. If she found one, she could possibly hook the top of her staff to it and hoist herself up.Mirissa S. Blare
