 The alpha female outlaw of Slab City once advised me, 'Beat your opponent psychologically and all things flow from there.'

Then she robbed me.

Her brain is wider than the sky above the Slabs, and her scares are the scars in nearly every mind in town. She terrorizes them before she plucks their properties clean of valuables. These are her chief techniques to look for:

•    Finger paints feces on windows

•    Shreds clothes on a line with a razor

•    Drops meth needles on properties

•    Poisons guard pets

•    Slashes water containers

•    Plants stolen articles at camps

•    Trojan gifts with spyware

•    Sleeps with significant others

•    Deniability - screams at night, 'You're robbing me!' to elude the chase

These PSYOPS make the Belle a bullseye for our top outlaws, male and female. They call her Sun Tzu with a vagina. She allows them to seduce her, and then each has gone to jail or disappeared.

Belle's tactics, as in sport, politics and business, set a backdrop in the subconscious. It softens them to become thankful when she doesn't steal, grateful when she eventually does, less likely to intervene, and kills any courage to retaliate.

However, two men are stepping up to rally other Slabbers. One threw a potluck to raise money to hire two large girls to 'beat her within an inch of her life', and another raised an empty jug and toasted, 'As soon as this fills with whiskey I'll push her down a mine shaft.'

The mind has no farewell. There's a war out here, and it's not about who's got the longest knife or most bullets. It's about who controls what the other side thinks. To date, the Belle is on top.

    Thanks for the tales from the slab.. Perhaps a bit more artistry or subtlety would improve her longevity.
    I think you meant “the mind has no firewall”, right?
