The note said to meet my contact in the last room of the basement floor, at midnight exactly. The factory floor was dark and empty, and as I took each step with more hesitation, I was pretty sure that this was the right way. Soon enough, light could be seen coming from the last room in this long hallway. However, I froze in the doorway at the sight before me.
Jacqueline: "Ahh.. You must be the one seeking my very particular set of skills. My name is Jacqueline, and this over here is my partner Sarah. I handle logistics and she.. well.. she loves doing the dirty work. Please come in and take a seat."
Taken aback by the sight, I hesitated for a moment. Her tone was friendly, sultry even, and her looks that of a high end escort, completely unlike what I had expected for someone with her reputation. But before I could reply, the other girl sensed my hesitation.
Sarah: "Sit down, maggot."
Her tone was cold and uncaring, and her exposed body gave me chills. She was definitively someone who did not joke around, and I got the sense that she could chop me into little pieces using her bare hands without breaking a sweat. The two made quite a contrasting pair. The one named Jacqueline said that they were partners, but I got the sense that it was more than just business partners. Clearly they worked together, but were they more? Perhaps lovers? A light giggle brought me out of my runaway thoughts.
Jacqueline: "Hehehe. Don't mind my dear Sarah, she can be a bit socially awkward. But please, sit down and tell us what's on your mind. I'm sure we'll all have a very productive talk tonight.."
Gulping, I nodded and slowly sat down.
