In the civilized places closer to Hegemony space, you
don’t see many bodies in the street in the first
place. When you do, they’re always swarmed with
sheriffs, marshals, constables, morticians and the
like. Then the body gets moved fast, so as to not
ruffle the civilized folk. The rest happens behind
Some towns don’t ever get bodies in the street. The
only deaths are from sickness or accidents or old age.
But I don’t tend to get to those towns so much, since
they frown on my whoring profession. The towns I work
in, everyone carries a gun. Being a pretty woman in
my line of work, I carry two.
Rated R. Contains sex, violence, profanity, the quick, and the dead.
