Pippa Francis sat in the green armchair, her long, dark hair cascading over her shoulders.  Oblivious to the bustle of the cafe, her eyes were fixed on the screen of her phone.  The text message was short but informative.  The client would be waiting for her at eight o'clock tonight.

Lifting her eyes from the phone, Pippa glanced round the cafe.  It was mainly full of student types like herself, unlike the man she was going to meet tonight.  It would be strictly business.  Cash for services rendered.  She had bills to pay.

Gently, Pippa placed the phone beside a small leather pouch lying on the table.  The colour of the soft leather was a deep green that matched the colour of her eyes.  Allowing herself an enigmatic smile, she began to fondle the pouch with her long, sensuous fingers.  Her smile broadened as she felt the contents move.

Looking at her watch, Pippa saw that it was time to go.  She placed the phone in her purse and stood up.  Mustn't forget my booty bag she thought merrily, scooping up the pouch.  She heard the dry bones of the dead man's hand rattled inside it and began to hum.
