i was sitting at my desk minding my own business, trying to stay out of trouble quite frankly, but trouble just has a way of walking through my door. it’s always been that way really, since as far back as i can remember. i’ve been on the short end of the stick it seems, trying to do right but always ending up wrong. today was no different. it was pouring outside, so hard it started pouring in, and as i mopped off my desk with saturday’s herald i heard someone call my name from across the room.
that sultry voice left me frozen in my tracks. my pulse raced. i began to sweat. she sauntered over in my direction, her heels clicking and clacking against my floor as if she were hammering nails into my coffin. i felt her behind me, her breath, a burning chill at the back of my neck. she whispered in my ear…”i’ve got another assignment for you…”
