T he one with his back to me got up and walked to the door quickly, pushing the door slightly as he walked out. The second man facing me got up from behind the desk and walked over to me. He was a short fella with a kind face; I couldn’t help wondering if he was like most corporate snakes on the inside though. He began to introduce himself “Good day sir my name is Mr. John D. Hendric…” The door snap shut at the last second and as it did Mr. Hendric’s demander changed instantly, he fell to his knees, his face was at the brink of tears “Please sir I have heard so much about your strength, you must help me I don’t know where else to turn. I will pay you anything but I need your help now or my company will be shut down.” He went on with his begging for a solid ten minutes, most of which I didn’t even hear. Finally, after what seemed like a big waste of breath he stopped talking long enough for me to accept the job.
“Please tell me what you know so far” I said to him “Well over the past few weeks a string of attacks have started, they have been getting more and more violent with each attack. Strange animal like creatures, intelligent and very organized attack the ships right as they are ready to leave. They have large claws and razor sharp teeth that they use to cut through the ships as they raid the cargo and attack the crew, though they seem more interesting in attacking the crew than the cargo, because of the small amounts of food supplies they take with each raid. That’s all I know the, reports from the attack are very hard to get; no one wants to talk about it.” He explained, I sat for a while thinking, “I wonder if this guy even thinks I can do this. “
“I don’t really have a reputation for being strong and powerful or defeating bad guys, I looked up at him as he smiled at me with hope in his eyes. Does this guy know how many fights I have ran away from, maybe he does.” I thought as I began to speak “Well I will need some information from you, first I need the location of all the past attacks and their times, and I will also need to know the location of all your shipyards so I can
figure out their pattern. I estimate this will take about two days to wrap up.”
As he looked through his desk draws grabbing the maps and reports. I couldn’t help but think if the only reason that this guy wants me to help him was because of my races very unusual cruse of not being able to die. Unfortunately for me that means no matter how much I get hurt I won’t die which can be a real pain. I mean being cut to pieces would really hurt. I was snapped out of my bleak trend of thought by Mr. Hendric’s voice “Here is everything you asked for I hope this helps” he spoke as he handed me a few rolled up maps with papers in between.
“That will do; I expect my reward to be ready by the day after tomorrow” I said with a smile thinking of all the things I could buy with it, “Yes of course it will be ready and delivered to your home upon completion of your work, it will be waiting for you at your door steps don’t worry.” As he spoke, I walked back to the elevator, it opened, and as I walked in, I spoke loud enough so that he had to listen closely to understand
