This is not a city for pretty boys. Claws against the tiles, a crinkling where something brushes along the stacks of plastic wrappers. A candy shop, a simple candy shop, but the windows are shattered in what will be announced a robbery once the sun rises. Once the sun rises, and all is gone. You shouldn’t have come here.
“You sure you’re qualified for this?” the sheriff asked, blatantly skeptical even as he led the way towards the morgue. “You look a little...young.”
Mark chuckled, the sound awkward and just a little wry to his own ears. The sheriff wasn’t wrong. He was twenty-three. It made Mark wonder what the man would think if he knew Mark had been doing this since he was even younger.
“I’m uniquely qualified, actually.” Unfortunately. He gave the sheriff a smile that didn’t reach his eyes. “Don’t worry, though, sheriff. If I fail, you don’t have to pay or anything.” I’ll probably be dead, after all.
(or, Mark has it rough, and magic was supposed to be better than...this.)
