'38 Rue Utopia ~ Ep.70

An outlaw stand in a pleasant land
In every face see Judas
~ Prefab Sprout ‘Don’t Sing!’ 1984

Di Profundis ~ Alejandro D'Marco

The hallway smells of something organic, some form of life giving off its perfume.
You pause in the doorway; this perfume does not come from a bottle.
Everything you know, all your years of training, tell your antennae this is wrong.
The gun in your hand is not a comfort; you don’t remember drawing it.
Shit and Blood’s perfume.
You’ve smelled it before; this particular scent that comes with the presence of hot arterial blood; of exposed interiors and death; you’ve smelled it before but never so removed from the script; it’s always been you who did the spilling; legitimised in the line of duty.
This is different, this doesn’t happen so deep in these suburbs, even if the grudge is that big; the Kulturati carry out their wet business topside.
The fucking witch.
You knew it was a bad idea to bring her inside but there’s no telling Giles how to conduct his business, you’re just the muscle; the hired help.
There’s a nagging something just behind your eye as you move toward the passage that leads to the guest suite, drawn by an almost imperceptible fluttering in the air from that direction.
