The Job Interview
Part 1: Fated Meeting

A silhouette figure sat quietly behind his desk, drumming his metallic fingers on the oak desk in frustration. Mr. Loath was not having a good day. In fact, it was a horrible day. The notorious loan shark was looking for a new henchman, as his previous one decided to accept the offer of becoming the under boss of the Nebula Grey mafia, the rival family of the Loath family.

"Yes, sir." the voice replied with more confidence. Mr. Loath wondered whether he should tell the person the door was open, or not. He didn't want to look too eager by opening the door all by himself, being the owner of Loath Inc, but this was a lady.
"You may come in." Mr. Loath offered as friendly as he could. The owner of Loath Inc. stood up and waddled towards the door, ready to shake the person's hand.
"Thank you." the voice replied back as the door creaked open to reveal the owner of the feminine voice...
