The thing about Miriam was that she always looked out for herself more than anyone else. And doing what she was doing could definitely get her in a heap of trouble should she get caught by certain people. That's why she only worked through word of mouth and secret cards. And when it came to having to pick up certain things or making a drop? Well Miriam would much rather have someone else do that for her so that she couldn't be caught between a rock and a hard place. And thus, the need for a middle man was born.
It was surprising how uncaring Miriam was to having someone do her dirty work that could potentially get into trouble and maybe even die, depending on the situation. Whatever, if there was one thing she had learned in her years of living was that there would always be someone else to depend on. And right now, she was getting ready to meet someone to see about hiring them.
Getting to the coffee shop a good twenty minutes before they were suppose to meet, Miriam ordered herself a tall latte and a scone, then took them both to a table where she was able to sit with her back to a wall and not have to worry about anyone sneaking up on her from behind. Nope, from here, she had a perfect angle of looking over the shop but could also get away if she needed.
Crossing her legs, Miriam brought a hand down to tug at the hem of her dress
to keep it from riding up. Her leg bounced on her knee, a shock of red moving a bit like a blur from her shoe as her foot moved. The only bad thing about meeting people was the waiting. But she would be damned if she was to show up late.
"I heard you were looking for a hand," she heard and her grayish eyes were soon on the man before her. "Maybe I am. Why, are you interested?" Miriam asked as she saw her card hit the table. Trying to not look like it bothered her, she reached out and took the card, sliding it off the table and into her bag at her feet. "Please, have a seat and tell me how you heard about this offer and why you're interested. And then I'll let you know what you're really getting yourself into and we can go from there."
