More drawer novel . . .  More angst . . .

I turned on my terminal with a defiant ping and brought up my messages. 

There were more than forty, and most had Press flags attached.  I deleted all of those—I didn’t know what had stirred the muck bucket, but I wasn’t having any. 

I grinned.  Let them try to break down my Door for a vidbite—I hadn’t had a chance to test the heavy artillery, yet.

My reflection in the screen grinned back at me . . . until I realized  I only had one message left.
