TERUKO STOOD BEFORE THE SHATTERED WINDOW of her establishment with her hands upon her hips. With the glass-curtain-walling along the two faces of the restaurant, it was only a matter of time until some asshole attempted a smash-and-grab. Unfortunately for them, Teruko lived immediately above her restaurant. As soon as she heard the shattering glass, she was down the stairs with fire roiling from her maw.
Still an inconvenience, though—after the Fuchu breakout, crime was through the roof (obviously). Legitimately dangerous criminals running rampant were one matter. But the uppity little shits that broke the windows of privately-owned bakeries were something else—those bastards thought they could do anything, just because there were worse people on the streets now.
Hurgh, if she were still back in Tokyo, things would be different. The Watch would give those assholes a run for their money.
Teruko rubbed the end of her snout with the back of her hand. For now, the window was boarded—the glass company would take a few days to come and replace the window. Teruko checked her phone. The security company would be there soon. Her phone was re-pocketed, and Teruko padded back inside, muttering beneath her breath.
She’d closed shop, for the day. In the midst of smashing and grabbing, those assholes had also smashed her cakes and pies. It would take a whole day to clean the place and re-make the baked goods. Fucking assholes. So much wasted product.
Teruko took-up a mop, which she’d propped against a counter, and began to clean in a place where she could keep an eye on the door. She’d already swept-up the shattered glass, picked up the larger bits of cake and pie and disposed of them, and was now mopping-up the grime. While she worked, the woman muttered to herself, her brows furrowed. She’d expect something like this in Tokyo proper, but never in a place like Musutafu. Ah, well.
