Rohan Quine, “Apricot Eyes” – chapter 10 “A drag-queen drives a tanker” – second sample – video
Scorpio slinks across the ground towards the tanker, like the shadow of a demon.
With his gun between his teeth, he scuttles softly up the ladder. He tiptoes the length of the container, creeping up behind Kev, who is kneeling through the hatch, savouring what looks to be a moment of messianic rapture not unlike Fernibel’s in the waste ground.
