I don’t know how I’ll die, but God, I hope it’s with a view.
The rafters above cross over my head, ascending higher and higher and
only visible by the faint light of the moon streaming through the windows.
But as I stretch my eyes, trying to see deeper into the darkness up there, it
just becomes a void. Invisible. Empty space. I can’t make out what’s beyond,
and I almost like that better.
I spend too much time looking up. More so than ever now.
“I sent him!” Hugo yells into his phone. “You got a problem with that?”
I wince, dropping my eyes.
“Flaco got arrested,” he explains to a customer as I look over at him at his
desk. “You got a new guy now.”
Nicholas and Axel sit off to the side, cutting lines on a small round table
with a girl in the middle. Her hands clasp a beer can in her lap.
Not a girl.
She tries to look older with the blue streaks in her white hair, but she
can’t be more than thirteen.
A Metallica song covered in Spanish blasts over the speakers, but I still
hear Hugo as he continues to gripe into the phone. “You know what the
transiency rate is on runners? You think I got a damn secretary who can call
and alert you every time one is replaced? You want the shit or not?”

Three guys line up behind me, waiting their turn as we stand in the
repurposed fire house. The bay door behind me still works too, letting cars
enter from time to time. It’s like a massive garage, but despite what goes on
in this building, I like it. It’s old and still smells like the tires of the old fire
engines they used to keep here.
I glance up once more, my body—for just a moment—way up there and
looking down at all of this. From high above. Away. Safe. In the quiet.
I murmur to myself, “Tranquila.”
But then someone speaks. “Come on, kid,” they say.
I look over, watching Axel hand the girl a severed straw and direct her to
the coke on the table.
Every muscle in my body hardens, my legs immediately moving without
thinking. I close the distance in two steps, grab the straw out of her hand, and
shove her in the chest, pushing her dumbass back into her seat.
Axel and Nicholas rear back, looking up at me, but I’m talking before
they have a chance. “What are you wasting blow on her for?” I snap.
Axel rolls his eyes, picking up another straw. “White kids got problems
