Being a degenerate is okay these days

It was sort of like that moment when you drive out of range of a radio station, the few minutes of static and garbled noise before another signal comes into focus.

That was what it felt like to Cristo when he blinked, and realized that he wasn't flat on his back on a concrete floor, but sprawled on some cushy sofa.

He sat up quickly, got the usual rush of dizziness from doing so, and gingerly prodded his side, just underneath his ribs. Everything was intact, as it should have been... was it how it should have been?

He pretty distinctly remembered getting stabbed, was the issue here.

The other issue here was, uh... the issue of here, actually. In that Cristóbal had no earthly idea where "here" was. He had stayed at a pretty nice hotel once, when the baseball team went to state. This place, as he glanced around, seemed several orders of magnitude nicer. Way out of Cochise's budget. Also the class trip was a day trip, no hotels included.

...

Cristo gingerly lifted his shirt, and confirmed that there was indeed no stab wound there. Not even a scar. So that was... good? In general, he liked not having major injuries on his body, especially those that led to a lot of blood and crying and, uh... dying? Dying had seemed pretty imminent.

God, he hoped Abby was okay.

A quiet cough drew his attention, and Cristo realized for the first time that he wasn't alone. The good news was, his company was recognizable and generally classified as civil, if not friendly, in his book. The bad news was, that probably meant Tina was dead or something too.

"Um," he said, throwing out the traditional Cristóbal greeting for people who didn't quite rank as friends.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
