The pregnant clouds hovered over the congestion that was The City, threatening to unleash their fury in biblical proportions. But there was nothing that could rinse the bogged streets and bogged buildings of the festering population. Even as the darkness encroached upon them, its denizens went about their business without even a glance to the heavens. Cash continued to change hands at street corners, stabbings continued to happen in alleyways, shops continued to be broken in and eyes continued to turn blind to these crimes. Just another day in The City.
