He’d only stay long enough to split away the addict’s 12vice, then he
was out of there.
When he finally paused outside addiction cell #642, 13trepidation
gave way to 14anticipation. His fingers tingled as he removed his cap
and stuffed it into the back pocket of his jeans. Who would be waiting
for him behind that door?
Back at the Splitter Center, where he lived and handled his 15runof-the-mill assignments, he’d probably be facing forty-five minutes
with some mom addicted to Twinkies who’d been turned in by a
