If you’re so desperately in need of money why are you even renting an office? Wouldn’t it make far more sense for you to have your office and living space as one? Even if that means you’re sleeping on the couch in your office.
If we return, and try and switch on the light, only for it to not work and stare down at the floor to see the pile of final demands. If we are forced to go to our mother’s in order to eat because we can’t even afford food.
If we are completely down in our luck.
And then here’s a guy, saying he needs a favour, offering to pay handsomely for it, to give us enough money that we can get a decent meal, have the electric turned back on and not end up outside.
If we try to do research on our laptop only for the battery to die. (And no electric of course.)
Just push home the need for money.
And I think the request needs elaborated on. We should either be able to help find the woman, even if it’s planted clues we come across, or we should be able to ask a little more about why we’re wanted to do this.
