He had frizzy white hair, a tweed jacket. Accompanying the picture was an article from theTribune , headlinedLOCAL ARTIST DIES IN MIDNIGHT ACCIDENT. 舠Ronald Reuel,舡 I said, glancing over the article. 舠I舗ve heard of him. 舡 Mab nodded. 舠Hailed as a visionary of the American artistic culture. 舡 舠Creator of worlds of imagination, it says. 舡 I read over the rest of the article. 舡 舠It was not,舡 Mab responded. I looked up at her. 舡 She smiled. 舡 I asked. 舡 舠There are powers of judgement other than mortal law.
He rolled to one side and came up on his feet, circling in order to force the woman-thing舗s back to me. The gunman in the truck clicked on empty again. I dropped the shield and hurled myself forward, diving to grip the shotgun. 舡 The wolf darted to one side, and the woman whipped around to face me, her distorted features furious, mouth drooling around tusklike fangs. I pointed the gun at her belly and pulled the trigger. The gun roared and bucked, slamming hard against my shoulder. Ten-gauge, maybe, or slug rounds.
I looked away from Mab and tried to tend to my hand as best I could. It still throbbed, and disinfecting the wound was going to hurt a lot more. I doubted it would need sutures. A small blessing, I guess. A manila envelope hit my desk. I looked up to see Mab drawing a pair of gloves onto her hands. 舡 I asked. 舠My request,舡 she replied. 舠Within are the details of a man舗s death. 舡 I opened the envelope. Inside was an eight-by-ten glossy black-and-white of a body. An old man lay at the bottom of a flight of stairs, his neck at a sharp angle to his shoulders.
