A bad idea.



Pulitzer’s not worth this.

Hands sweaty. Knees weak.

Ray’s going to be pissed.

Deep breathe. Clear the mind.

Don’t need to be fearless, just look like it.

Guy by the door.

Big. Permanently angry.

I toss the pepper spray away. No need for it.

Useless anyway.

Straighten the spine, lengthen the stride.

Find the smile, the one that says,

“This is my mask. Don’t make me show my real face.”

Breathe again.

This is it.

Goon practically snarls.

Head on my hip, head cocked.

Not impressed my body says.

Speak the password, his lips split.

We’re friends now.


Door opens.

This is it.

Woodward and Bernstein, I’m going to make you proud.
