“Why you?” Seth-Sagan asks with a slight scoff.
“I get it, I’m pretty capable, but I’m not exactly a thug,” you say.
“That’s exactly why. You need to be more than a thug; someone who can reason, think on their feet, someone that we trust to get shit done. Things are changing in the city, the boss has his eyes on some new territory,” says Seth Sagan.
“The boss, I thought you were the boss?” you ask.
“You have no idea what’s going on here. How long have you been working for me?”
“I was on lookout for five or six years, but last year you put me up to courier,” you say.
“And what have you been running?”
“Blackwater, eye-candy, maybe some other shit. I don’t use it, I take the snacks and sell them to street creeps. You know I can’t use.”
“You could use, you choose not to.”
“Whatever, what’s your point.”
“I put out maybe four to five thousand amps a month. How many do you ship?”
“Not that much, maybe fifty. I figure its just for you, maybe for a specific client. I don’t ask, you know that.”
“Yep, you don’t, and you don’t ask, but why do you think you’re doing what you’re doing?”
“I don’t want to play a game, just let me know when the next pick-up is.”
“You have a bigger part to play in this, KK”
“What’s that supposed to mean? Do you think I like running your high-end dope, I know what this stuff is, I know its not the regular street shit. I don’t need to use it to know, I see how deep it takes the users. I don’t want a bigger part, I’d leave if I could, but Big Daddy Zeta is the only other gig in town and I ain’t looking to die that way.”
“Calm down, I hear you. I know you don’t like it, but it is what it is kiddo, and he thinks you’re ready for more.”
“I think. I think you’re ready for more. If we move into Arcadia, we’ll need people we can trust.”
“I see. I’m a good unambitious GMO. Pulled from the pits, made to order. When you say we, you don’t mean me. Whose moving where, what’s going on?”
“What do you know about Juedon?”
“Nothing good. I figure we all in one way or another work for him, but I’d pass on a direct job offer,” you say.
“Juedon, he’s the future, KK. I ain’t saying everything right now, I can’t, but trust me, one day you’re going to be working for Juedon. He’s taken an interest in you,” Seth Sagan says.
You don’t like the idea that Juedon even knows who you are. Years ago he was part of the government that tried to make custom kids. He signed the bills to make the GMOs. He’s also the man behind the drugs, the same drugs that make your pod-kin go insane. He also ordered the purge. Everything that is bad about your life goes back to Juedon. The thought that he has anything to do with your life feels off, but as you noted, in one way or another, you all work for him.
