John was walking in to a Dinner and saw the nerves looking woman he was to meet. He walked to the table the woman was sitting at, and he stopped looked around the dinner. The woman gasped and looked up at him, “Please, have a seat…if you are?”
“Yes thank you.” John looked at her stunned look, “Don’t look so nerves.”
John almost laughed, “It’s okay just don’t be so obvious about it, but don’t worry there aren’t many people here at this hour.”
The women looked around the dinner to see that no one is paying her any attention. It was the middle of the workday after the lunch rush.
John thought he should start talking to ease her mind, “How was your day at work? It couldn’t have been that bad? Today at the office my boss was delegating, as he calls it. He had me busy doing his work all morning, so he could have a late tee off at the local club. Doesn’t your husband play a lot of golf?”
“What how did….” The woman seemed come to attention, “Oh, yes he plays every weekend with any one that he can get to spend eighteen holes with him.” She finally loosened up and showed a big grin.
John thought he should get to the point that he is meeting with this women, “It has been a few years since I’ve played golf. I may pick it up again for this job, but I don’t know that I would want the attention.”
The woman’s eyes grew, “There are a lot of trees by the golf course.”
“Let me worry about that. You have ten?”
“Yes.” The woman went into her purse that was in between her and the windows. She took out a white envelope that was about a half inch thick.
“What you though yellow would be too obvious?” John took the envelope and slipped it in to his jacket. He almost laughed at the dumfounded look on this woman’s face. “Loosen up, give me a month and your troubles will be over.”
“Ten down and fifteen a month later is the lowest I get. And, I get to act on my own recognizes.” John was looking serious now. He thought this woman took this better than his earlier care free approach.
“Yes,” The woman smiled, which John didn’t expect, “thank you very much sir. I will have the fifteen in four weeks for you.”
“I’ll let you know when and where.”
The woman watched John leave thinking, ‘Good it looks like he got the papers I sent him about Roger’s weekly schedule. But, why did he want to meet me for the money exchange?’
PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
