Sevi was silent for a long time. “I hope you’re good,” she said at last.

“Sure,” Aleisha responded.

Sevi looked at her. “I don’t believe you. You haven’t the experience to be worth shit. When I walked in there, I terrified you, you looked like a frightened mouse.”

“I wasn’t expecting you, that’s all.”

“And that goes against you. From here on in, Aleisha, the rules are simple. Don’t lie. Ever. Don’t exaggerate your skills, don’t fake anything, or you’ll fucking answer to me.”

While the outfit and corresponding boots might point to someone playing the part, the belt loaded with equipment denoted something altogether more serious. Aleisha felt her first moment of apprehension.

Her hair was regulation short, almost shaved, but what was there was dark and sleek. It suited her, she had the bone structure and striking facial features to carry it well. Deadly good looks, Aleisha thought, the emphasis perhaps on deadly. The woman looked severe.
