In fact, as far as neighborhoods go in Chicago, it was pretty bad. There was a high crime rate, and a lot of the buildings were run-down, abandoned, or only infrequently used. Streetlights were out in a lot of places, so when night closed in, it was darker than most areas. It舗s always been a favorite haunt for some of the darker things that come crawling out of the Nevernever for a night on the town. Trolls lurked about like muggers some nights, and any new vampire that came through the city always ended up in this neighborhood or one like it, searching for prey until he could make contact with Bianca or one of the lesser vampire figures of the city.
Her eyes were bright with anger. 舡 舠No,舡 I told her. 舡 I curled the paper in my fingers and crushed it, then tossed it aside, to the floor. She stabbed her fork into a cut of steak, a sharp, vicious gesture. 舠Look, Kim,舡 I said. 舠Give it some time. When you舗re older, when you舗ve had more experience . 舡 舠You aren舗t so much older than me,舡 Kim said. I shifted uncomfortably in my seat. 舠I舗ve had a lot of training. 舡 My own ability with magic, far in excess of my years and education, wasn舗t a subject I wanted to explore.
The bottom line was I was strapped for cash. I舗d been eating ramen noodles and soup for too many weeks. The steaks Mac had prepared smelled like heaven, even from across the room. My belly protested again, growling its neolithic craving for charred meat. But I couldn舗t just go and eat the dinner without giving Kim the information she wanted. It舗s not that I舗ve never welshed on a deal, but I舗ve never done it with anyone human舒and definitely not with someone who looked up to me. Sometimes I hate having a conscience, and a stupidly thorough sense of honor.
