Stacy: Four Years Earlier, Part Two

He said his name was Christian James, but I could call him “Doc.”

I never did.

He ate and drank what I offered, fell asleep mid-sentence by the fire. I searched him as thoroughly as possible then snuck his thumb onto my datapad’s sensor for a workup.

I drank coffee and kept my eyes anywhere but him while the pad did its data crawl through the ‘Net. Finally it beeped its results.

I spilled my coffee.

That…was a mule-load of money sleeping right there next to my fire. Scion of old money and wanted in five districts.

My favorite.
