Week 393 Winner
Miranda says: Her character was just dripping attitude and sass, I loved it.
Serena lounged in the beat up executive chair, idly polishing her favorite pistol as she listed to Garret drone on about the next job. He was such a tool but the boss liked him for some reason. As he continued going over what they’ve already gone over, she aimed at an invisible target off in a corner of the room, adjusted the sights, and slide the gun back into her thigh holster.
Garrett finished at looked at Serena expectantly.
She rolled her eyes and ran her fingers through her hair. “Yes?”
“Do you understand where you need to be and who your point person is?”
“Do I look like I’m twelve?”
Garrett’s face turned red as he pressed his lips together.
“Serena.” The Boss’s voice rumbled through the room as he filled the doorway behind her, chiding her.
She sighed and stood up, turning slightly. Her eyes flickered briefly in the direction of the only man in the room who held her respect.
“Trust me, Boss, I won’t let you down,” she replied, leaving the rest unsaid, of who had let him down before.
Garrett’s expression darkened further and his hands bunched into fists.
Serena smiled sweetly as she walked by Garrett’s stiff body, patting him on the shoulder as she left the room.
