Eve stood outside the old building. This mill at the west side of the industrial district looked like it had seen better days...although it still looked serviceable. This was where she was to meet her contact for her first job in this city. Working alone might have been better, and more money for her, but it always helps to have a helping hand. That, and it's handy to have a meatshield when the arrows start flying.
The deceptively young looking girl was suddenly torn between her love of the comforts that would come with staying at an inn, and the money she would save by sleeping in this old mill after meeting her 'partner'. Sure, with an inn she could get food and a warm bed, along with a reduced chance of being robbed while she slept. But sleeping here would most likely be safe, dry, and warm enough to sleep if she could find some hay. And it was free.
Free, the magic word danced in her head, like a sirens call. When something was free, it was hard for Eve to pass it up. She loved getting her moneys worth or more, and how can you go wrong with free? Well, it was possible, but hard. Deciding she would make it up in the morning by buying a big breakfast, Eve concluded she would sleep here tonight.
Trying the door, and finding it locked, she shortly wondered why her client had told her to meet in a place that was sealed up tight. The answer came swiftly, it was a simple test. If she could not get in here, then there was no point in hiring her.
Carefully making her way around the building, she soon found her entrance. The back door was also locked, but the door was halfway off it's hinges. Taking out her sword, she dug the guard into the hinges (wouldn't want to damage the actual blade.) and pried the door the last inch or so loose. She managed to catch the door as it fell, and set it back in place after she got inside. It would keep nothing but the rain out, but at least it looked in place to a casual glance.
Now, where was the lucky person who would be working with the soon-to-be-famous mercenary, Eve?
