"So you'll let her go after we're done here?"

"Did I say that?" Vil almost meowed at her. "Don't put words in my mouth."

"What then?" Mei breathed.

"I'll give you her location after I leave here. When I'm safely away, I'll send it to you. But if I see a single uniform or S.O.D car before then, she's dead."

Mei leaned in closer, genuinely curious.

"Why all this, Vil?" She asked. It was taking every ounce of her will to not reach across the table and end it right here. She did that for Danielle's sake. Presuming that she was still alive. "Why this meeting?"

"I do this for a living, my sweet. This is my job. But the meeting, and letting the girl go – well, let's call it a professional courtesy between old friends."

"We were never friends." Said Mei pointedly.

"Weren't we? Oh yes, that's right – you didn't like my enthusiasm for the job. That's why you screwed me over. Funny how the chickens come home to roost, isn't it?"

They looked each other in the eyes for a long cold moment. Vil was the cold calculating one, the ice-queen with no trace of warmth or humanity or any saving graces. And here she sat, looking her in the eye like a slaughterhouse attendant eyeing his next victim on the disassembly line. Mei wasn't cut out for this anymore. She had grown used to the soft living that came with being a woman. A woman who, until recently, had no trouble sleeping at night. And across the table sat Villainessa Tittel, a natural born woman who had no problems with the so-called life she had pursued, sowing misery and death on either side of the Highway of Life.

"You done?"

"Why yes, hon." She smiled, rising from her seat. "Time I was going. Have a really nice day."
