“Cut to the chase, Johnny, what’s this new orders crap? I thought we were pretty straight forward.”
“Change of plans. As soon as you deliver that ore, you are to rendezvous with the cryoship Flotilla. It’s leaving from Aolani in four days.”
“That’s pushing up our window, Johnny. That’s gonna cost the Guild extra. If you examine my contract….”
Riley cut him off angrily, holding up a hand for silence. “I’ve read the contract, damn you! I know how much it will cost us.” He stopped himself just short of yelling, going red in the face. A vein throbbed on his forehead.
Wil bared his teeth in a feral grin at the other man’s discomfort. “Watch that blood pressure, Johnny, it’s a killer. Orders received, I comply. Loup Garou out.”
