Drabble: Have Nots

Have Nots

“Wow, man, that is slick. How could you afford it? Those next-gen implants don’t come cheap.”

“Hey, have you ever known me to skimp?”

“Nate, I know you couldn’t afford that on your own. What gives?”


“You didn’t.”

“It’s just until I can pay it off. And really, it’s not that bad. Sure, I don’t get full use of the implant, but I wouldn’t have it at all if it weren’t for this distributed computing lease.”

“You’re thinking some rich stranger’s thoughts for him.”

“All encapsulated, though. Well, almost. I do get some bleedthrough...” His face grew distant.
