(Drabble) Looking for opportunities

29th April 2009 (15:30)

This one's for beer_good_foamy, who requested 'Lilah'. Hope you don't mind the crossoveriness.


Looking for opportunities

He was remarkably good looking. Lilah appreciated that distantly, as she might a work of art.

"We can find your missing person, but with only a name..."

"I have a picture." Teenage boy: non-descript, face in the crowd. "It's important that I find him."

"Pay our fees, we will." She offered her warmest smile as he left.

"Security? Give me a complete scan of my last client."

The results were... surprising. Somebody wanted that boy badly -- which might make finding him first quite profitable. Smiling, Lilah set off for Files and Records, carrying the photograph of this 'John Connor'...

Thanks! (The original draft was about 220 words, so I'm glad it still worked with over half the words missing...)

Very, very clever. One could almost imagine Lilah as a human Terminator, if only for the vicious relentlessness of her character.

Thanks! Although I think Lilah's much more devious and twisty and subtle than any Terminator...

Mind it? I love it! :-) Probably the most logical crossover point there could be between these two shows, and I love Lilah's decision to find him first. Thanks for writing this!

Glad you appreciated it. :-)

(It's just a shame about all the bits I had to leave out, like Lilah tapping her chin with a pen as she wondered what was strange about the client. And, of course, the client thanked her for her cooperation before he left...)
