    Duke inserts the keys into the door of the city fringe’s sheriff’s office, noting the musty smell and cloud of dust that accompany his ingress. He takes a brief look around – a desk, overflowing with neglected paperwork; a chair too rickety to hold his weight; a flask with a silver star painted on it, hanging on the wall; a window built into a wall that never gets sunlight – and grimaces. After the rock monsters destroyed much of this part of the town last month, burrowing too close to the surface and causing sinkholes to consume many of the buildings nearby, the office is in surprisingly good shape. Duke tabulates a quick mental list of the tasks to complete before the office is up and running, prioritizes them, and gets to work

    Two days later, the big cyborg settles into the newly-reinforced chair, the cement blocks under it supporting his massive frame handily, and flicks on the electric lights, smiling as they flicker on. This town has plenty of issues, but at least he’s in a position to do something about a few of them now.

    The porch lights outside the office flicker on as well, illuminating a freshly painted sign, the letters neat and blocky, reading

    There’s a knock on the door. Outside, Caulder waits in his business suit, hands in his pockets, his chin lifted upwards.

    The summer breeze brings a moment’s respite from the heat as the doctor waits, hearing the sound of a chair scraping against the floor inside. The door swings open a moment later, and Duke waves him inside before pouring a glass of water for each of them, sitting down across the desk, now neat and orderly since he’s had a few weeks with it.

    “Doctor, I’ve been expecting you. Is this about the Kitsana issue, or has something new cropped up?”

    Almost instantaneously from the opening of the door, Caulder assaults the office with a monolithic stack of papers bombarded soundly upon the desk which used to be neat and orderly. The desk groans in protest from the impact and papers from the top take flight and re-enact a dance in the open air. Caulder sips from his glass of water as the last of the wayward papers scatter, looking perhaps a little more pleased with himself than might be socially acceptable.

    “Well, if it isn’t my good friend Duke, and newly appointed sheriff, no less. I trust you are molding into your newfound obligations well.”

    He sets the glass down on the table, casting off a couple more papers to the wind.

    “As astute and diligent as ever – consistent with my expectations, which for you are unusually high given your previous pattern of such behavior. Indeed this is about the issue. It occurred to me that I had missed about a week’s worth of regular deliveries of my notices to this office, so I brought them today as well as accompanying documentation for my litigation.”

    He sips from the glass and sets it down. A paper soars gracefully over Caulder’s head, then meanders toward the floor.

    Caulder smiles.

    “How have you been?”
