Lilah MorganOh you do treat your guests most wonderfully. Something I have always enjoyed about the firm.
Lilah could only meet the compliment with a very wide grin on her lips. ”The Senior Partners shall be very delighted to hear that you think this”
, she replied. To Lilah's best of knowledge, Wolfram and Hart was the only law firm in this realm that dealt with the many (and highly unusual) issues faced by demons in this dimension but firm policy was that lack of competition did not have to lead to a decrease in the quality of the services they offered. After all, some demons mastered the art of traveling through different dimensions and the Wolf, the Ram and the Hart were not the only ones that could tend to their needs there. The Senior Partners wanted the law firm to be the best and feedback was a key element in constant improvement, whether it came from clients or from other contractual partners. If negative feedback was received, the employee who dealt with that particular client, well... delicately put, they were off the payroll. Positive feedback kept you alive and unscathed, so it was important, even when it was coming from someone as low on the food chain as a vampire was. Not that the Senior Partners would have went as far as to axe her for not giving a proper welcome to one of the firm's paid killers but Lilah didn't want to make small mistakes that could pile up and be used by the three demons later. Everything she did had to be perfect, Lilah didn't settle for anything less.
When the secretary arrived with the very fresh blood Lilah had ordered, the woman had to take a discreet deep breath in order to fight the nauseating feeling that was threatening to settle itself into the pit of her stomach. She wasn't squeamish at the sight of blood, no. Lilah had no trouble assisting to blood rituals; on the contrary, she enjoyed being the one to drag the blade across the skin of the sacrifice or bury it deeply in their flesh. The thought that the vampire was going to drink it from a glass, in front of her, bothered her a little more than she liked to admit. ”I'm going to take your word for it but stick to my coffee”
, Lilah replied, doing her best to hide her disgust and sound completely professional. ”If you need another one, let me know. We have enough donors around”
, the lawyer offered with a smirk on her lips.
Taking her pen in her right hand, Lilah tapped the desk lightly with it while she listened to Adelaide's reply to her question concerning the broody thorn in the Senior Partners' side. ”That sums it up pretty well”
, Lilah confirmed when the vampire finished talking. ”Do the Senior Partners want him gone?”
The lawyer laughed. ”That's an underestimation. Ultimately, they do. But before he makes his grand exit and goes to hell, his life should be completely miserable.”
Lilah's lips curled into a smirk. ”I know you're thrilled for the kill but this time you're going to have to do things a little differently. Do you think you can manage it or should we find someone else to help us?”
Lilah leaned a little over the desk, catching the vampire's gaze while she waited for an answer.
