Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Friday (The Administration, #2.2) - Manna Francis
Felt more like a cut scene (if this is actually the case, I'm guessing it was originally the beginning of [b:Pancakes|9373475|Pancakes (The Administration, #2.3)|Manna Francis|/assets/nocover/60x80.png|14257038] and Francis decided to move it to focus attention on the two main characters, which seems like the right move) than a short story.

The friendship between the two characters didn't seem convincing and I didn't buy that someone as smart and secretive as Warrick would share personal information that he didn't want people to know.

Hopefully it ties in to some larger plot that I haven't encountered yet, because on its own it seemed pointless.
