The Drift

Synopsis:
RASL is driving back into town after having returned to the right dimension. He comes to his client’s house (a prostitute named Annie) and she invites him in. She notices RASL is in bad shape, asking if he was time traveling. He explains he jumps dimensions using “thermo-magnetic engines to bend the space” around him. Annie notices the painting was shot in the foot and she can never show it to anyone. During a conversation RASL asks if Annie has seen the lizard face assassin (mentioning he was from “The Compound. Deep Black.”) We also learn that under his wrist was a security chip. She has not seen the man. RASL is frustrated that “they” are unable to control him, so they sent an assassin.

Annie shows him a medallion showing “The Man in the Maze” which represents the journey of life and its turning points. There is also more of an explanation of how RASL travels dimensions, mentioning while he is in the void, there are portals, and he goes through the one he sees. Annie believes it may also be that it chooses him. Later the two have sex and fall asleep. RASL wakes up later worried he felt something wrong, but he is in the right place (Bob Dylan exists in this world). He decides to go out to a strip club and drink.

He returns to the home to see Annie has been murdered (with a heart ripped out around the bullet hole from the painting soaked in Annie’s blood.) RASL knows he must go after the assassin and gets his jeep. As he drives he narrates about when he first played with magnets and learned Maxwell’s Equations to make his immersion suit. He says that “nothing is certain in the world of quantum physics.” He makes an example of this by mentioning electrons are not able to be pinned down in an atom. But he also says “I can’t remember where I heard the theory that these particles were actually leaking into other dimensions. But I can remember the first time I followed one.” He then burns the Picasso painting on a mountain top and uses his immersion suit to enter The Drift in a blast of light.
