The night was dark.
The streets around me gleamed with a dampness like the sweat one sees on a repairman’s ass as he bends down to fix the plumbing. At the corner she stood there, her shadow dark and menacing. Held in her left hand was the dreaded object, the thing that would cause the downfall of Western Civilization. I walked up to her.
“What’ll you have tonight, Johnny?” I couldn’t place the accent but it sounded ominous, as if she had been born in Texas.
“I want it,” I said. “I want it bad.”
She seemed to pause for a moment and then, with a careless shake of her hair that looked like the color of midnight oil, she handed me the book.
I looked at the lurid cover. “Yes,” I said with satisfaction. “Affair in Tokyo. You did good, baby.” And then, impulsively, I mashed my lips against her lips and then started to read. Just for the hell of it, I started on page one.
Ok, have fun.
