It was the next day, and the man re-entered. The woman was already there.

"Are you ready to stop avoiding the question now?" she started.

He was indignant "I wasn't avoiding the question!"

"Ok then." and she put the item down.

"Has it taken effect yet?" enquired the man approaching.

"Can you not tell?" she asked.

"I was... unsure..." he responded.

"Then it shall remain a mystery for now."

The mans brow creased. "Then what shall we do?"

"For now..." she considered "we wait."

The man paced back and forth. He could not stand waiting. He always needed something to do. And she was aware of this, that was why she'd set him a task.

"Are you ready to do something for me?" she enquired.

The man appeared hurt. "I'm always ready, every time you want me to do something for you."

"Well then" she moved her arm, "I would like you to take this." She indicated the item.

"And what should I do with it?" he said picking it up.

"You should take it to the man we discussed..."

The man appeared confused. "Really? You want... him, involved in all this?"

"Very much so. In the end we may rely upon him."

The man considered. "Hmm... I suppose you're right."

She raised an eyebrow. "Suppose? I'm always right." She smiled.

"Ok then, when?"

She moved. "Well there appears to be no time like the present."

The man seemed surprised but nodded. "You don't need me here?"

"Not right now, thank you."

"Ok, I'll go now then."

He paused for a moment to consider the woman for moment, and then walked out.
