EXCERPT
“No need to be scared, Mademoiselle,” the woman said. Her thick, French accent made Amara feel panicky. 
            Amara focused on breathing, swallowed back her fear, and asked the only question she could think of. “Why now?”
            The woman shook her head, smiling. It was just as warm as it was vile, and it made Amara’s skin crawl. “My name is Vivienne LaRue, and I am here to offer you a job. You’ll make a lot of money,” she said, as her eyes darted around the restaurant with distaste. “A lot more than you’re making here.”
            Amara licked her lips. “And if I don’t want another job?” 
            Vivienne raised her penciled, thin eyebrows and twisted her lips. “You made a deal once, as I’m sure you remember.”
            “I do, but it’s been…”
            “Five years.”
            “Right. Five years.”
            “Your parents still live in the same house, correct? Drive the nice cars…maybe your mother doesn’t frequent shops as much, but still has her things. She got her treatment, her medical bills paid. Who do you think made that possible?”
Amara’s throat tightened as she listened to Vivienne. She knew, of course, that she was telling the truth. She just hoped there was something she could do to avoid this situation. When nothing dawned on her, she sagged into the seat behind her.
            “Why now?” she asked again.
            “Why not?”
            “I’ve been saving money.”
            “Not enough.”
            “How do you know?” Amara asked defiantly.
            Vivienne laughed lightly and took out one sheet of paper from her briefcase. She placed it in the center of the table, facing Amara.
