The world of drugs. Not exactly a place to stay or visit for more than a few minutes. In an alternate US, making drugs legal doesn’t change that.
Jane was born into the drugs world before they were legal. When violence revolved around the distribution and use of them. When sex was a commodity used just as often as money. When predators hovered in the vicinity looking for their next prey.
The world marked her in ways most couldn’t imagine and few would let her forget.
So, she walked the career path chosen for her—by fate, society, and circumstance. And the tools to her success are violence, sex, money, and dealing with predators.
Jane isn’t exactly a soft and squishy character. She is, in fact, a cold blooded killer, a survivor, and a drug dealer. A stereotype so easily dismissed. Until you look into the dark corners of the American Dream and see the shadows cast by those who live glibly in the light.
And the people who live in them.
I’d say welcome to Jane’s world. But she’s liable to tell you to f*ck off. And, frankly, that’s what I love about her.
Until next time.
