It was time for his weekly visit to Mr. Hastings’ office. The old man had been becoming more and more tough in his demands, so the deal was certainly a pain in the ass to seal. Specially when his own boss wasn’t giving him catre blanche to negotiate. Thankfully, he was always treated really nice in Hastings’ office. As he arrived, the receptionist told him that the man he was looking for wasn’t at his office, but was surely going to arrive soon, and invited him to take a seat and a coffee, that he accepted with a sigh.
