Aria hummed to her song, Into the Unknown, as she painted the wall of the alleyway behind Rigio’s Pizza and Junk. The wall had practically called to her. It could have been her song but that was boring. Her bottle held all the colors of the rainbow, and then some. She didn’t know how; only that it did. Squished under her chunky white sneakers colored with characters from her imagination was a wanted poster for her family.
For generations, the Kirna Family has colored the city. They graffiti all they can find with gruesome images of blood, death and destruction. They must be stopped. You can help! Keep your eye out for evidence of these violations of property. You will be rewarded!

Aria squished it further. Why do they hate us? she thought. Can’t we just get along? She sighed. The noise of the spray calmed her, even through her music. Unknown ended with Idina screaming, INTO THE UNKNOOOOOWWWWNNN!! Aria mouthed the words with her, swerving her can to make a sharp edge. Nicknackatory came on next, and Aria grinned, switching to blue.
She heard Rigio’s wide feet slapping on the pavement, flashes of a sickly yellow. She winced and put her can in her hoodie pocket. She walked quickly to the...one...way...out.
"I thought I heard spray paint back here!" Rigio's yellow-green voice yelled. "Why do you like making my place ugly, huh?"
Aria yanked her earbuds out, the thin blue trail following it. "It is ART, Chunky. Why do you like insulting my ART?"
Rigio/Chunky cracked his knuckles. "Get out of here, Leonardo, before I pound you."
Aria smirked for a split second. "Leonardo de Vinci was an amazing artist. That's a compliment. Not that you would know." she walked past him, her sneakers colorless. That was why she wore them.
"Don't you come back, you hear me?" the yellow came again. Aria ignored him, but walked up to his front door, and taking out her can, she sprayed the front of the door with her family's symbol, something only her relatives would understand.
"HEY! GET AWAY FROM THAT!!"
Oop. She better run.
So she did.
