“We have a citizen here for DeCampos. Says his name is…”
The officer’s words drifted through the general noise of the crowded waiting area. A good dozen citizens rested anxiously on the benches, holding hushed conversations, brooding in silence, fiddling with paper or bits of clothing, or simply bouncing their knees. The general tension and confusion was still palpable, but this one was less immediate as people told themselves it would all be fine. It would sort itself out. Surely this was just a misunderstanding.
Some of them were undoubtedly right.
The police watching over the detainment chambers looked haggard and jumpy. They were more thorough than usual in checking people’s belongings and their heads snapped around at every raised voice. That attentiveness has been enough to keep all but the most vocal dissidents in check, coupled with the fact that those who pushed too hard found themselves promptly escorted from the building. The message was clear, bear with us or leave, one way or another.

She stood when she was finally waved over, surrendering her tumi knife, boleadoras, sling and stones, and ragged brown poncho worn over a simple grey tunic. Tuku kept her slates and chalk. Only then did recognition dawn on the men’s faces, a passing familiarity with the girl who spoke with colors, the small one that followed the detective. They exchanged looks.
“You… you understand what he’s in there for…”
They were being protective. Word must have gotten out. Tuku grit her teeth and glared at the men.
