Jae supposed it made some sense. Guy with a weapon hiding under a bed like some kind of weirdo, and how did she know he wasn't just trying to exchange pleasantries before shooting her in the face? But something wasn't quite right about how suddenly she left, about how she froze for a split second upon seeing him, like she knew something he didn't...

The front of his shirt was still stained dark with Asha's blood.

Jae crawled out from under the bed, slithered like an animal until he got to his feet and followed her out the door.

"Wait," he called. "Lily."
"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."
