A stinging sensation from her elbow impinges on her attention as they walk down the street. She looks down to examine what's causing the pain and doesn't notice a green figure pass right by her. Her arm is grazed badly, she doesn’t know what from. She hasn't noticed the fa├žade yet. As they approach the next corner, her
