The Pan must do something quickly, not only is he Blacklisted, but he has just done something terribly stupid. His instincts kicked in before his mind had a chance to tell him how insane it was.
He just nabbed the wallet of the baddest of the bad. What's a pathetic soul like The Pan supposed to do? Grovel. Pray. Grovel. I'm not sure if it's necessary to do it in that order, but all three are needed to get out of this situation alive.
This short made me wonder exactly what type of beings were in this story. There is talk of antennas waving and quivering. I thought it was going to be a mob story, but the antennas have peaked my interest.
I think I may just have to pick up the larger work, Few are Chosen.
