I think I know what to do

I have to prioritize

The Eastside; Hyena territory. Not much to worry about, Hyenas are nothing but a bunch of loud drunken idiots, posing almost no threat. The only weapons they wield are their finished wine bottles. Katherine and Kat tread lightly in the dark surrounded by drunken laughs and fist fights. Katherine whispers, “Don't worry, Kat, they can't hear anything over their own rambunctiousness. Sorry excuses for human beings, how they continue to survive is beyond me. The city Jesters; perhaps they're just too entertaining for the wolves to kill off.” Kat appears unamused but stares at her new friend with glowing eyes, as if being spoken to by an angel. Katherine's endearing smile beams through her face mask. They begin to walk closer to the fighting tournament being held in the middle of the street. Bottle…
