((Min-jae Parker continued from Rear-End Collision))

Things had been surprisingly uneventful since Jae and Dorothy had left the staff buildings and Lily's body behind. Maybe surprisingly was the wrong word, given the dwindling numbers on the island, but Jae had come to expect disaster around every corner now. They had gone a full day or so without encountering anyone else, and on one hand that was good.

On the other, it meant that Jae had to listen whenever Dorothy opened her mouth, and every loopy thing she said annoyed the hell out of him. He didn't know why he was letting her tag along. It wasn't like he liked her, and he got the feeling that she didn't like him either. He couldn't get away from her with his bad leg without threatening her away though, and she'd probably try to tase him if he did that. So they continued on, a maybe slightly crazy person limping along with a definitely more-than-slightly crazy person in tow.

There had been voices at the vehicle depot, but none of them were voices Jae had cared to investigate. He was restless again, so they were wandering without aim in the dark, the same way he always seemed to end up. If Jae had been sentimental, or an idiot, he might have thought there was poetry or something in that.

There were voices as they approached the cliffs too, hushed ones. Jae stopped short when he heard them, holding his arm out to stop Dot as well. He wasn't about to get any closer or announce their presence before he could tell who it was over there and whether they were trouble.

Of course, trouble always seemed to find him whether he wanted it or not, but Jae didn't feel like taking any chances right now, now that his name had come up again that morning.
"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."
