As Bart made it to the end of the block, he gave a quick glance back behind him and saw nobody was following. He slowed his pace, and got himself into a rhythm. "Safe... I think" He thought to himself, relief passing over him, as he crossed over to the next block, and kept up his current pace for awhile, letting himself get lost in the city, taking random turns as he went, just to make sure he was shaking anybody who might be tailing him. After a good three minutes of this, he slowed down to a walking pace. It was at this point he heard a soft meowing behind him, and he stopped dead, facepalming. "Sorry Lucky, sorry." He said, and slung the backpack in front of him to see a very annoyed kitty looking up at him.
"Oh come on..." He whined a bit, an apologetic look on his face, "If I didn't run, who knows what could've happened to us!" He tried to explain. That really did concern him, and part of him wanted to report them to the police, but he couldn't see that ending well. What was he gonna say? It was his word against theirs, and they technically didn't do anything illegal. It unsettled him how quick they were to jump to that kind of behavior, he was a lot more concerned for his safety now. He hadn't realized people would be quite that... unsavory, and he even started considering trying to get his hands on a gun, or anything for self defense. He shook his head at Lucky, "I was just trying to protect you."
Lucky sank back down into the bag, clearly still annoyed, and refused to make eye contact with Bart.
"Hey hey... I'll make it up to you, yeah?" He saidm a little exasperated.He carefully slung the bag back around his shoulder, and gave it a quick pat. He looked around, and he saw street vendors around, and his stomach grumbled. "That's it, let's get some Sushi, Lucky'll like that." He decided. And started a quick walk down the street, finding a sidewalk sushi shop, and approached it. He gave a bright smile to the cashier, and said, "Afternoon! Can I get a piece of Tuna Sashimi and a California Roll?" He asked. He figured a piece of tuna would help smooth over what just happened, or at least he hoped so.
