Jae groaned into the carpet. When he felt in control of his limbs again, he gingerly reached up to touch the stinging spot at the back of his head. Fortunately, he felt no blood or broken skin, but it still hurt like a bitch along with his hand.

When the person on the other side of the shelf whimpered a "sorry" at him and fled, he almost had enough breath to laugh at the absurdity of it all.

Slowly and painfully, Jae worked himself into a sitting position and leaned back against the shelf. So what had he accomplished here? Nothing. Nada. Zero. Zip. Zilch. He'd terrorized somebody who probably wasn't terrorizing him in turn and got another bump on the head for it.

Was there still somebody out there in the fading twilight, waiting for him?

Jae sat for a long time, surrounded by bodies in the darkening library, wondering.

"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."
