As I sat outside of a street cafe, waiting for my mark, I remembered a story from my childhood.
A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream. The scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion says, “because if I sting you while you cross the stream, surely I shall drown .”
The frog is satisfied, and they set out. But in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, but has just enough time to gasp “Why? Now you shall surely drown!”
The scorpion replies: “Because it is my nature.”
I don’t know why this story came to mind, but it had always brought a smile to my face.
My mother, a very no-nonsense Japanese businesswoman, used to tell me this story every time I became too “wilful.” It was supposed to teach me how to always be dutiful, or some other such nonsense. I never told her that I had made my own ending to the story –
“But little frog, I can swim.”
You see, I refused to believe that the scorpion would kill herself just to sting a stupid frog. I know the moral of the original is supposed to be a lesson on the unchanging true nature of a person, but my version reminds me to always be careful. It reminds me that things are not always what they appear to be. If you disguise your true nature, others will always underestimate your capabilities.
That is why I am sitting outside of a cafĂ© on a chilly spring afternoon, disguised as every sarariman’s dream, a vapid blonde teen girl with a tight sweater. It’s disgusting how easy it is to fool men sometimes. And the crazier your approach, the easier they believe you. Silly frogs.
I’ve made a great living acquiring things – for myself and for others. My natural abilities have made me one of the best on the streets. But back to business…there he was.
My mark was a Japanese collector of rare art. Supposedly, my employer told me, this collector had acquired a rare magical sculpture from a Mr. Johnson that wanted it back.
I didn’t feel it prudend to mention that I had previously been the one hired to steal it.
My job was to simply find out where the collector’s storehouse was, and the client would take care of the rest.
As my mark and his bodyguard got closer, I made my move. I cast a quick suggestion spell upon the bodyguard and then started walking towards them.
I briefly touched eyes with the mark and then looked down, properly demure, and even managed a blush. I then pretended to stumble – right into the mark. My fingers quickly pressed a stealth tag inside one of his pockets. I also felt a small object in his pocket and I palmed it without even thinking about it.
I stammered an apology and flashed him a big smile and a bubble-headed laugh. He frowned at me as I walked away, and then growled something to his bodyguard, who, thanks to my spell, would not remember ever seeing me.
I wove my way through the downtown crowds, changing my face often. I was also checking for possible tails, both mundane and astral. When I felt safe, I went into a crowded public bathroom and dropped my disguise. I then called my fixer and relayed the radio code for the stealth tag. Money in the bank, as they say.
I turned my attention to the object I pulled from the mark’s pocket. It was a standard data chip. Great. Probably his collection of fetish porn or something like that. But, just on the off-chance that it might be valuable, I took it to a friend to analyze.
The chip was heavily encrypted (a good indication of possible worth). He told me it would take some time to crack and that he would get back to me. He never did.
When I went to his place later that week, it had police tape all over the building. After making sure that there were no cops or watcher spirits around, I snuck inside. What I saw almost made me flee immediately.
Dried blood was everywhere. Not only in my friend’s place, but in other units and also in the hallways and stairs. Several doors had been broken and even some of the walls. Even though it had been almost a week, I could still feel the horror of whatever had happened when I went astral.
I didn’t find the chip in my friend’s place. Either it had been stolen or the police had taken it. Either way, I knew when to make my exit.
The odd thing is, no mention of this attack has been reported on any news station or talked about on any blog. What the hell happened there and was it related to the chip? I don’t know the answers to those questions, and I don’t really feel the need to go looking.
