Tarila had long since left the bridge and the contractor found Nom alone there. Nom greeted him shortly and got straight to business.
"You said you have a job for us?" he said. The contractor nodded and Nom sighed impatiently. "Well what is it, and is my sister going to need to be here? If she is, I can call her and she'll be here in a few seconds. If not, just tell me about the job."
Before the contractor could say anything, Tarila reentered the bridge. She looked him up and down before saying anything.
"So," she said, "what's the job?"
Nom and Tarila are very one minded when it comes to jobs.
