Tension Break

 

"Face if you're not gonna sleep, at least keep still." Murdock's voice from the mildew-scented darkness.

 

"Sorry."

 

Silence for one two three...

 

"What's on your mind?"

 

"My name. Thinking after we get our pardons I might change it." Resolutely optimistic tonight. After. Not if. "Time for a change."

 

"You wear names pretty lightly."

 

Why not? Like wearing donated clothes, stretched and moulded to someone else's body.

 

"You all call me Face anyway, so it's no problem for you."

 

"So... Richard Bancroft?"

 

"No."

 

"Maybe change it to just Face. Like a rock star."

 

"Yeah, and then I'll start hanging out with guys called Elbow, Ankle and Neck."

 

Another silence. Pondering.

 

"I knew a guy who changed his name," Murdock said. "I mean another guy aside from you. He changed it because of his job in the police."

 

"Oh, don't tell me, he was named... Kopp, or... or Constable."

 

Chuckling. "No, he was called Mike Down."

 

"So? Why was that a problem?"

 

"Because every time he radioed in as Officer Down, fifteen cop cars and an ambulance showed up."

 

Even in the dark, Face's aim was unerring and the pillow smacked into the head of the giggling Murdock. After that, Face slept.
