SF Drabble #185 “Turning Blue”

You don’t argue with Militia. If they want to scan you for contraband, you let them. Navy, Police Patrol, them you can give a hard time and they’ll just shrug it off; they’re professionals. But Milita? Some of those guys are nuts.

My friend Yango, when he was stopped coming into Riolanthe with a load of Polymers, gave some Militia heavy lip about harassment. The dude didn’t sieze the Polymers: he took Yango’s O tank, leaving him only what was free in the cabin.

Yango barely made it to dock. He claims he held his breath the last couple minutes.
