"Nice Fedora, Johnny," the girl at the bar said. She was right. It was.

I knew her vaguely. I'd helped with that thing a while back. Yeah, that thing.

Under her skin were pale green colour implants and, if you looked closer than was polite, you could see scales.

I was thinking that body modification had got too extreme when she spoke again.

"Gonna show me that hat or not?"

Before I could reply, her forked tongue snaked out further than I expected, knocking the hat to the floor.

I bent to retrieve it, reconsidering my position on body modification.

    I know what Indiana Jones would do. What does Johnny Wishbone do?
