SF Drabble #132 “Not Much To Look At”

I had a full share on a U-235 run between Rykle and the refinery stations around Calumny. Of course, when we got there, they couldn’t pay for the whole load. Somebody owed them money, and shit flows downhill…

They did, however, have a beat-up grid runner they’d taken in trade from another client. The others wanted nothing to do with it but I accepted it in lieu of most of my share. Still have enough left over to fix it up pretty nice.

I hear there’s real money in smuggling chem into the inner systems, if you don’t get caught.
