East River residents have been gossiping and exchanging rumors at a fever pitch after several recent events.
“A lot of weird mojo,” said the barrista at Pippen Hot Coffee, “and people can’t stop talking about them. First there was the shipment of new equipment to the hospital here, then there was a visit from the Waterbank CDC, and there’s like, all these new people.”
Pippen Hot has been full of new people, none of which were sharing rumors.
“They’re as tight lipped as those Feral Marine security types,” complained one commuter.
“What freaks me out is Waterbank News suddenly renovating,” said one customer. “It’s like they know something bad will happen and they just up and left.”
