About the Story

The commissioner usually takes a blind eye to the burnouts who writhe at the feet of Muse Terpsichore, but when something happens it's always you. You are the one who knows your way around the parquet floors strewn with broken heels and broken glass.

A commended entry in Shufflecomp 2014, inspired by "Smooth Criminal".
