The streets where normally dead this time of night, and he would be able to just fly around and wind down after a patrol. Something was different tonight. The Scarab kept nagging him, kept pulling up the infra-red lenses without asking and just was being a pain in general. After a while, he just had to give up.
“Dios mios, ese… What is your disfunction tonight?” He groaned as he landed on the closest rooftop and the wings on his armor folded away. Standing there, glaring at space for a moment he just shook his head, “There’s nothing weird out here. You’ve been doing scans all night. Anything with a pulse would have shown up.” He rolled his eyes and moved to sit on the ledge for a moment, distracted by the voice only he could hear.
Zai had been seeking refuge for the night when he got the idea to simply escape to the rooftops. No one would bother him there and the noises of the city would possibly be muffled high up. He was pleased and therefore he sought a humble way up. Climbing up the fire escape in an alley way was the best way for him to be unseen and as soon as he stepped onto the roof, he looked for a comfy nook to rest.
It wasn’t long before something landed nearby and Zai crept out to observe. A human of some sort? Perhaps if he stayed hidden then he wouldn’t be bothered? But how often did someone land on a building? Zai stepped out and heaved a sigh. “I guess I’m not the only one lurking the rooftops.”
