A friend of a friend, these strangers at the party never paid
*Beths pov* *flashback*
I was on the way to Harrys house for a meeting, we dint have meetings very often so when we do you’ve got to be there on the dot. I remember the last person I remember being late to a meeting without reason ended up in hospital… needless to say I’ve not seen him since. This was playing on my mind as I rounded the corner to his house, that and why the fuck are we having an official meeting, don’t think we’ve had one since I joined, what 4 years ago? I- of course lived the farthest away from harry therefore was the last one here. I walked through to the living room where we held out ‘meetings’ and was surprised to say the least, as in the middle of the room stood someone I had never seen before. He had dark chestnut colored hair with abit of an ‘emo’ fringe going on. He had big soft brown eyes, however accompanied with a level of hardness I think everyone- including me- had. Don’t think anyone would notice though, not really. He had his ears stretched quite big and snakebites, both of which are really attractive I find. Mr mysterious also came with tattoos littering his slightly muscular arms.
I think I got lost staring at him as when I looked up from his arms, he was standing a couple of steps away from me and he was holding out his hand.
“Hi I’m tony” he had a quite soft voice and he was American and from what I could tell he had abit of a lisp going on from his snakebites.
“Beth” I simply replied shaking his hand and going to sit down, I was surprised when he turned around, walked to the center and began to speak, addressing the rest of us.
“As you well know, I’m tony. Harry as had do go across seas to meet with my people, (by which I guess he meant the operators in the US) harry decided that you still needed a leader for the next couple months so he called me over. I’m guessing you already know the plans so you can go do whatever with the rest of your day, and we will meet like normal. See you all another day.. Oh and Beth, stay behind I need to talk to you.”
“Sure, anything you need” I quickly replied, you don’t mess with your boss see. As I hugged everyone goodbye I went to stand in front of tony.
“Harry told me many a thing about you, Beth”
“Only bad, I hope” I smirked
“He told me you’re by far the best one out of all the people he’s met”
“I do what I need to do and not think about the consequences, that’s the only way I see myself getting past the age of 25”
“and that, is why he recommended you for my job, I need you do something for me”’
“And what might that something be?”
“I need you to steal something very important from some very dangerous people”
“Sounds like an adventure, and what would I get out of it?”
“What does your pretty heart desire?” and there it is! Like an animal homing in on its prey, I could see his eyes darken slightly as his voice deepened. Suddenly he wasn’t quiet and innocent, he was a deadly machine. That’s why he’s so good at this, he even had me fooled that he was a shy innocent boy. He’s good I’ve got to admit.
“I need to keep someone safe; I will do your job as long as this person if kept safe.”
“deal, stop by this address” handing me a piece of paper “with your details of who needs protection”
I nodded and started to walk towards the door,
“and by the way, thank you, you really are something special.” He finished just before I closed the door.
