"So? What'd you do yesterday?" he asked, making small talk over breakfast.
I hate small talk. "I got a job with VJ at the Warehouse! I'm going to be their decoy!" I snapped.
I sent him a withering glare across the table. "You do not get to tell me what to do!"
Estevan pursed his lips. "If I asked you not to do it?" he rephrased.
I stuck my nose in the air. "I'll consider it." Plumbbob, it's not like I wanted to be a career criminal or anything - I was just having some fun sticking it to the man!
I rolled my eyes at his melodramatic exit.
I threw my hands up in the air. "You don't understand a word I'm saying, do you?!"
My mom rolled her eyes. At me! Had everyone lost their blinking minds today?

Nick checked me out. "Always nice to get a new female in the field," he told me. "They never seem to last long before they start having babies, though!"
Only, Nick didn't seem to take any offense. Instead, he laughed heartily. "Good to hear! Maybe you'll stick around longer, then, toots!"
I handed him his envelope of money.
Estevan shrugged. "Does that mean you're not going to do any more illegal jobs?"
I hedged. "Let's talk about that later tonight... after Emu's party..."
Quickly, I hurried to take a shower.
"I don't know," Simone said hesitantly.
Not taking no for an answer, I shoved her towards my new boss. "Go! Talk!" I mouthed.
Maybe Bitter Melon was right! Simone thought with a sigh.
