    Summary

    While we walked through the dead quiet streets of Grimglass toward the outer slums where all the Kers was stacked like little Saint Cranach dolls, I asked her a question. "Who was trying to break your nose?"

    Ajran frowned, and then worked something out in her head, and nodded. "Oh, some little boys," she looked kinda bored of the whole thing, but she still said boys like it was an insult, which I guess it was. Kers were a fancy word that meant the women made all the decisions. "They think I am a very easy... very easy mark." So she'd definitely picked up some talk from me.

    --This is an old writing exercise to see how well I can integrate an original female character, and lots of worldbuilding, into a preexisting setting with preexisting rules. You can tell me how well I did, or didn't, do.

    Summary

    I ain't in a pack, so it ain't like there's turf or nothing like that. Turf can change, and it's all about fighting. What Keeper got is property, which means she bought it. Keeper owns all the shit right around where Ptolemy Road crosses with Iago. Which means she got the bar-- a real nice, proper place I ain't allowed to go in the front of-- and she got the kinhouse where all her kids sleep, and she got the workhouse where the kids who're sick chill and sew the initials outta handkerchiefs while they get better and all that, and a couple of other places besides. Me, I'm really lucky, because my Keeper's right and established, she got a real regular business and only picks up kids like me to keep us off the street and from real bad keepers who beat kids more than they need it.

    Of course, when I say that to Nikah, his eyes just about roll outta his damn head. "Y'know that ain't true," he says. But then he can never explain why, so I figure he's just jealous. He been talking about leaving for ages, but he always chickens out the night before.

    --What if Methony had made a different choice?

    Summary

    So I lit a cigarette and waited. Was smoking allowed in flash apartments like this? Fuck if I knew. I figured, if someone wanted to give me grief about it, they'd speak up, but no one tried anything. Once, an old lady with this tiny little dog-- looked like a fluffy rat, you know the type-- came up to me with a look like maybe her lungs was going south and me smoking wasn't helping. But she took one good look at my face, and asked me for the time instead. The thing was, I could see the dinky little watch on her wrist. Once, I would've tried to lift it off her, maybe pawn it on Fifth Avenue. Instead, I thanked my fucking stars I wasn't a teenager no more, and put out my cigarette.

    Summary

    We’d been living out in the country for the better part of an indiction before Felix started to show serious signs that he was bored to tears. I was actually kind of liking the peace and quiet, but I guess I should've known that couldn't last long.
