"I'm not asking you too. You don't exactly have knees to get down on."

Shannaire shifted her coils restlessly. "Would it help for me to tell you to stop reading my pheromones?"

'That's quite a compliment, coming from you."
"He's only human."
"That's more like it."
"And so are you."
HR raised his hands. "What's your price?"
"I don't need anything from you."
"Then why are we having this meeting?"
"Treat him well."
"If you don't trust me to do that already, why don't you keep an eye on him."
"I would anyway."
"This would make it easier." HR slid a manilla folder across the table and offered her a pen.
