Customs Bill

I held the twenty in my hand.

This felt like a first step. I could sense a future clicking into place. A twenty dollar ‘fee’ here, maybe another couple of people each with another twenty wanting to skip the line. Then maybe someone would lack the complete paperwork, and they’d offer a couple hundred to ignore that. Word would get around, some guys in black suits and fast cars would want a shipment to be given a wide birth… It would all start here.

Or, you know, it could be a once off thing, no trouble. Yeah, that’s the ticket…
