Soli rounded the corner at a run and slammed directly into someone’s well-armored chest.
“Oof!” she gasped, staggering backward.
A strong hand snapped out and caught her elbow. “Careful.” The deep voice was amused.
Soli looked up into a friendly, unfamiliar face. He was not in Guild uniform and was holding a shock-pulse gun, currently pointed up.
“Uh, you shouldn’t be here,” Soli said, clearing her throat.
The green-eyed man grinned rakishly. “Hello … Ferdain,” he said, reading her jumpsuit. “Are you happy with your work?”
“Uh … what?”
“I have a thrilling new opportunity for you. Consider me your new recruiter.”
