MIllie Barr (a.k.a. Inflatabelle)

Having a charred bullet hole in her suit was an annoyance. This was her only suit and Expandex was neigh impossible to come by. At least she had her cheap trench coat to close over the damage.
As it began to rain, she ducked into a local bar and planted herself at the counter for the rest of the day and night. With each bottle of gin, the notion of having her suit repaired or replaced faded. Her thoughts turned to where they always do, towards her past failures, disappointing her family and being totally alone in a new city.

3am and time to go. Well, the bar was closing and she had drunk half of their stock. She got as far as the alleyway behind the bar before she slumped against the wall next to the bar's dumpster, slid to the ground and sat against it until she slowly passed out.

About

I was an aspiring blimp pilot when I had an industrial accident in a tire factory.

Now I'm a living rubber duck with an alcohol addiction.

Yay me.

      The mental review of her limited memories since arriving in town yielded no results.
      “Uh, no. You’re the first eagle I’ve seen here. Sorry.” It was at this moment that Millie just began to push through the cloud of intoxication to finally notice that her ‘room mate’ was actually quite attractive.
      Before the mean vice in her head could chime on how he was out of her league, probably gay or that she had no chance at all at any kind of happiness, a CRACK cut from the floor.
      Months of neglect, exposure to the elements, and plain old shoddy workmanship take their toll on a building. Especially an abandoned one like the ones these two were hiding in.

      Like a giant graham cracker in the hands of a wrestler, the floors center broke away. The all too familiar feeling of weightlessness hit Millie. She’s been no stranger to plummeting towards the Earth, but her new companion didn’t appear to be as well adjusted to it. The flailing was a dead give-a-way.

      Launching herself off the mattress, Millie leapt out towards the eagle, enveloping him in a full body bear hug.
      The two fell downwards, preceded by the giant slabs of concrete and rebar that was once their terra firma. The huge chunks of debris CRASHED through the floor below, and the one under that, and the one under that. A full five stories were plowed through, leaving a dark sink hole for the two to desend into.

      Instinct kicked in and Millie took in a monstrous breath with a WHOOSH! Her body filled out like an airbag in a giant’s SUV, enveloping the eagle’s body and shredding her coat. The ball that was once a drunk self-loather and a very surprised vagabond, struck the ground with a BAMF, bounced around the dark basement level of the building and rolled to a stop against a wall.
      After the dust cleared and the sound of pebbles landing about them wained, FSHHHHHhhhhhhh…. Millie deflated back down to her previous size…directly underneath a disheveled eagle.
      As if she wasn’t embarrassed already.
      “Um…eh..it’s a condition.”, was all she could think to say.

        Bao didn't seem to acknowledge her apology. He didn't appear to care or even register her reactions either. Instead, his next question became very pointed towards the first thing she had said.

        "Did any of them happened to be an old eagle?" The kid asked, "Bald eagle. I'm looking for one. Male."

          Shrugging, Millie Sat up and reached into her satchel to pull out her bottle of whiskey. Undoing the cap,
          “Uh..Idunno. The first guys I ran into were nice enough. A little creepy, but nice.”
          She took a deep swig, then realized how strange and degenerate looking her actions were. She immediately ceased imbibing and put the bottle down. -GULP- “Sorry.”

            Bao

            Bao turned around to look at her. He was a bit dumbfounded at her question, He took a few seconds to process it as the thought of her being a stranger to this area had not been something he considered a possibility.

            "Uh... no?" He replied, "I don't know. I'm not from here."

            He shrugs.

            "You're the first person I'm talking to, so you tell me about the people here..."

              “Oh good one.”, Millie thought. “First thing in the morning and you already say something embarrassing!”
              “But why didn’t I get bigger? I always blow up at night when I snore. What was it about being in this hovel that kept me from waking up a whale? Was it the musty smell? The type of mattress? No. It had to be..him?”

              The confusion finally got the best of her and she spoke.
              “Um, what’s the deal with this town? Is everyone here nice or am I just unnaturally lucky and finding’ all the kind people here? ‘Cause, I’m, like, not used ta this.”

                  Yeah. Being the source of laughter for others is just what she wanted to hear. Millie tamped down the feeling of revulsion from the remark. She’s had enough kids laughing at her already. The last thing we wanted to be considered was a jester....

                    “Oh yeah, I’m so -really- can help me.” Careful Millie, you’ll lose an eye rolling them that hard. “When you’re not tossin’ yourself offa bridges.” Yeah, Millie would make a great social worker. “Da heck were ya doin’ there anyways? They run...

                      The look on Millie’s face was the most deadpan look of NO a duck had ever made in the history of deadpan expressions. “Uh…I’ll pass. Look, what’s it gonna take ta get rid of you? Money? Ya lookin’ ta shake me down for cash or somethin’?”

                        “Hate you…hate you…so much.”, she eked out. She reluctantly snatched the pump out of Harmonziser’s hand, popped the end in her mouth and pumped away until she had filled black out to normal shape. She clearly didn’t enjoy having to do that. “Now...

                          “ Not alone for long enough.”, Millie grumbled under her breath. She turns to face the well meaning duckette. “Look, I know ya probably mean well, but I’m fine! I don’t need a hand out or a shoulder ta cry on! I can take care of myself and don’t...

                            Walking away from the scene, Millie threw back the contents of the bottle and chucked it into a nearby trash can. “It’s called hittin’ a bad guy.” she quiped. “Oh, wait.. you mean..” She pointed to her midsection. “I have a…condition. I don’t wanna...

                              The rubber duck’s rising anger levels were only matched by the crushing feelings of hopelessness of her situation. Anything she told the eager young hero was just going to bounce off of her skull. This kid’s overblown goodie goodie drive was making...
