.02 News: FreelancerMature

Kayli froze for a moment before she recognized the person sitting in her chair.

“Jordan! You scared me!” She finally gasped, not without a slight hint of annoyance.

The boy got up from the chair with a wry grin on his face. He was tall for a 17 year old and almost towered over Kayli. His skin glowed a deep bronze in the darkly illuminated room and his dark black hair only made his bright green eyes shine brighter.

“That’s what you get for being late.” He said, chuckling slightly. “Your face. It was priceless.”

Kayli’s face flushed a deep red.

“You know its not nice to scared the wits out of little teenage girls!”

“Pfft, little? You’re practically the head of an entire society. If you’re little then I’m miniscule.”

Kayli rolled her eyes.

“Yet you tower over me like an annoying unwanted shadow.”

“Aww, come one now.”

Kayli sighed, pushing Jordan out of her way. She sat down promptly in her chair and swiveled it once or twice just to make a point. Yeah. She was the owner of this room.

“So why are you here?”

Jordan shrugged.

“Bored, long time no see. Why not?”

“That still doesn’t give you the right to scare me like that.”

“Come on, you can’t still be angry at me for that.”

“I am. Do you have a problem with that?” Kayli shot a glare at Jordan. Jordan’s lips curled into a curious smirk.

“Yeah, I do. I don’t like angry people.”

Kayli let out a frustrated groan.

“Remind why I sent you away.”


Kayli waved him off.

“There’s a reception room downstairs if your hungry. I’m a little tired, so if you’d like to leave...”

Jordan watched her for a moment, his mouth half open as if he had something else to say. He turned abruptly and walked away.

“Close the door!” Kayli shouted. Jordan reached over and slammed the door shut.

Kayli winced at the noise. Maybe she did go a little overboard.

The End
