    Summary

    "I see, guess it's mine now," Chuckling, he slid the coin into his shirt then sat across Gioia, "Hypothetical question, but let's say you found a suitcase of one hundred thousand lire - what do you do with it? Turn it in?" 

    Gioia looked at him as if he were crazy, letting out a slow laugh, "Are you kidding? No way, it's mine now." 

    "My, well aren't you honest?" The man's eyes suddenly hardened, giving Gioia a dangerous look, "Now, what if I was a cop all along and I saw you take it?" 

    Gioia's smile faded. She brought her knee to her chest, lifting her skirt ever so slightly - the man looked away immediately, "If that's the case, I'll split the cash and have you look the other way.." Gioia looked around, "Probably." She shrugged. 

    The man burst out into laughter, "Wow, that's great! And I'm sure that's what you'd actually do. You see, I have this knack for knowing when someone is lying or not," He began rubbing his cheek, "Did you know that your skin gets shiny when you sweat? Though, I think I'd be more certain if I got a taste." The man said, licking his lips.

    “Are you a whore.” It wasn't a question it was a statement, one that was spoken coldly and in a deep, gravely voice.

    Aria blinked at him, continuing to clean the glass in her hand. She didn't flinch at the words, merely glanced down at herself as if inspecting for any sign of this whore he had inquired about before looking back up at him once more. “Not to my knowledge, no.”

    Summary

    “It’s a big change and it’s not easy to adjust, but it will get better, you’ll see. You just need to give it time and be good. You want to be good, don’t you, Billy?”
    Billy clenches his jaw so hard he could break a tooth, swallows. The shock collar they snapped around his neck as soon as they processed him catches against the flutter of his throat. He swallows again, against the metallic taste of the drugs flooding his mouth, against shame and rage. He feels like screaming, like sleeping, like crying.
    He closes his eyes.
    What was the question again?
    It doesn’t matter. He’s smart, he knows that the answer is yes, ma’m. It always is.

    Or: The indentured!Billy fic no one asked for.
