her apartment complex wasn't that far from the campus, that's all she had to tell herself. typically, and because victoria didn't have a job, she tried not to stay on campus for too long. or, if she did, she usually had a friend or two around her that helped bring her home. they all seemed to accept her inability to really take care of herself properly. not that tori couldn't do it, she kept a nice apartment, she knew how to clean and cook, and she knew how to budget and shop for her groceries. however, she was still somewhat indulgent and naive, and she liked to spend her money frivolously. ever since her parents had another baby, and she loved her brother dearly, their attention had grown sparse. the money still came in, deposited right into her bank account, and she still had her credit cards that they paid for, but it wasn't really the same. having their money and living off of that, well, it was nice, and it was helpful, but they didn't have a lot of time for her anymore. going from the beloved only child to being basically forgotten most weekends where they'd usually skype call was jarring. they'd worked hard in order to get her this apartment so close to campus, because they'd been concerned for her well-being. victoria was concerned as well. and now that it was dark, despite how bright the campus was, the streets were, she was a little worried.

a few friends had told her to take self-defense classes, had even gone with her multiple times, but she wasn't sure she'd really learned anything. tori was the type of person that would shut down rather than fight back or defend herself. she was timid, in that regard, didn't even like arguing with people; though she could definitely get heated when it came to certain things, but she couldn't remember ever yelling at someone. victoria had made this walk hundreds of times, she was going to be fine. off campus, she had a few blocks to walk, had been warned about taking shortcuts, so she didn't. it wasn't that late, but her class had gone on far longer than she'd anticipated. usually, she tried not to take night courses, but sometimes they were the only ones available, and since she didn't work, she could go to class whenever. that being said, it was pushing eleven at night and she was just now heading home. worrying her lower lip between her teeth, victoria cross the street and made her way down the strange co-joining set of alleys that would lead right to her posh building's entrance. it was at the mouth of this alleyway she was, essentially, stopped by two men, possibly her age, maybe older, as they conversed in hushed tones. initially thinking nothing of it, tori curtly excused herself and went to round them, but the first one stepped back, a little into her space, causing her to lose her grip on her portfolio.

he apologized and tori smiled brightly. this felt weird, it didn't feel right. when asked where she lived, she almost told him, but backtracked immediately and just said 'nearby' instead. she remembered some things that she'd been taught, plus, she wasn't going to outright trust these two guys. she kept her back to the wall as they engaged her in conversation, but otherwise she wasn't quite sure what to do. there were compliments and one was moving a little too close, but she stood her ground and smiled, and accepted the kindness. but she was feeling uncomfortable and wary and they must have noticed, but didn't back off. it was scary, really. the second one of them tried to reach for her, she laughed sheepishly and tilted her head away, tried to divert by glancing at her phone in her other hand. she needed to make some kind of excuse to leave but, then what? she didn't want to go home, lest they tried to follow her. in the long run, victoria was not fully equipped to handle a situation like this.

It was actually a quiet night. The bar was taken care of and he didn't exactly feel up to spending his hours with the night's crowd there and he hadn't heard any chatter of any local meet ups, or at least anything that had really spiked his interest. Sometimes, just being out with his own head was fine enough by him. He'd had to make it on his own when he was younger more times than he'd had any assistance in the matter, so it wasn't really a strange feeling.

They said everyone needed a break, right? It was these kinda nights he just drove around until he didn't feel like driving anymore. Then, if it was like tonight, he'd find a place to park and he'd just... walk. There was nothing wrong with getting more acquainted with the city, after all. You never knew when you might need to know that this one alley behind the bakery connects three streets over and this was the city that never slept, so there was usually plenty to look at, if you felt so inclined.

Hell, something could just crop up, knowing the crowd. Sometimes, those events weren't always so organized before hand and they just came together out of happenstance.

The night was still young, after all. But never young enough that some unsavory heads would decide to start peeking out. Even in broad daylight, there were people. He wasn't unfamiliar with that concept by far.

He hadn't really noticed it at first, but that was what had made him double take. Two guys really close to someone, basically closed in around her, and making her uncomfortable?

He was no hero, but he wasn't an ass, entirely, either.

"Hey!" he raised his voice sharply, not at all shy about stepping into the space of one of duo. "'The hell do you think you're doing, huh?" Smartest course of action? Most probably wouldn't say so, but he wasn't just going to walk by.

He'd always had a loud mouth when he wanted to, they said. "Don't like it so much when I'm in your space either, do you?" The faintest hint of a growl tinged the words and he gave the man a bit of a push against his chest, pressing him back a few steps. "You don't look very invited, friend. So, I'd advise you to get lost!"

VICTORIA K. DEAR ;; No worries; I've been pretty all over the place myself. Stoopid life xD
