Larry used to relish his dream job. He'd always wanted to be a thought cop. Stopping the bad guys before they committed crimes. But after just a few years on the job, he was close to burning out.

He never anticipated the long hours of listening to lurid thoughts and exhaustive days of immersing himself in the most vile environments imaginable would take its toll on him.

At the end of a shift, he couldn't wait to wash his mind out.

Being a child division thought cop was tough. He shuddered to think what the adult division cops went through.
