Stir Crazy

Okay, my guards are all asleep. Except for the one who can't leave his post by the door. I should be safe to post. It looks like the blogs are pretty dead right now, except for poor Shroedinger. Not much I can do for her, or for Konaa, who I'm still worried about. I can't go do anything for Shaun either, as much as I'd like to after the revelation of his insane fucking situation. I can't do anything for or with anyone right now because I'm STUCK IN A MOTHERFUCKING ROOM.

Sure. I have the laptop. I have cable, and permission to order movies off of the pay-per-view. But I have a hotel bedroom and bathroom as my only room to move. I have several police officers who like staring over my shoulder and whom I have to get permission from before closing the door. ANY door.

I've been working half the time I've been here, partly out of a perverse desire to make the cops as uncomfortable as I am, partially because I thought I'd need the money, but after what happened this afternoon, that's not really a problem.

Apparently Cam had a will on file, and it was read today. Cam left me half of his money. Half. I'm not going to tell you how much that is, but it's more money than I've ever had in my life. By a SIGNIFICANT margin. I also get to keep the laptop and the car, and there's apparently a notebook I'm supposed to look at... I'll have to see about finding it when I can go home.

In the less good news, I'm not to be allowed to go to Cam's funeral. Too much of a risk Prosper will show up to try and finish the job. Though of course, they don't know it's Prosper. The point remains, and they're probably even right, but I don't like it. I would've liked to give him a  proper send-off.

Fuck, it's late. They'll start waking up soon, and I need to get some sleep.


  1. I'll make him a little fire tonight. Camping out in a warehouse for the evening, so I'll light some bags and get a little bonfire going. In some cultures that's how you send off the dead...I think.

    He really was nicer than nice. I might not have known him long, but I'm gonna miss him.

  2. Thank you, Konaa. I think he would've liked that.

  3. I have already given the present Prosper left for me a proper burial. Even if it was an object, a piece of Cam was still upon it and I buried it with the respect he had earned and deserved.

  4. Thank you, Shady... I just wish I could do the same.

  5. I'll do something for him. Dysis says she knows something they used to do for people who got lost and were never found.

    Its like a mix between hot-air balloon and a lantern and it looks lovely.

    Its the least I can do right now.

  6. Thank you, Hylo. I... I'm going to see if they'll let me have a candle. I'm not religious, but I need to do something to... to say goodbye.

  7. Funerals are important. They give closure. If they're worried, why not have someone escort you?

  8. Go making the police uncomfortable. <3
