Drabble: Blood Sport

Blood Sport

I run a face recognition search on a random stranger, poke around in some records. The game is on.

“Do I know you?” He gives me a blank but friendly look. “I do! Edison High, ‘09?”

Genuine surprise. “Wow, small world!” I can see him trying to place me.

“Mari Gunderson. I doubt you’d remember me.”

“Rings a bell.” Too bad my implant randomly snatched it from the phone directory.

“I had such a crush on you back then.”

He tries to hide his surprise. “Really?”

“Major. Well, I’ve got to go.”

I leave him scrambling for something to say.
