Loan Some is about the adventurous careers of Loan Some employees who are hired to be “friends” to people who don’t have any. Previously, Lily and Sarah were leaving Zombie Con, when Sarah started yelling at Lily for leaving the group. Suddenly, the mystery man stepped in and stopped Sarah from yelling. When Lily went to confront the man, he was gone, and Lily’s phone started to ring in her pocket.
Lily pulled out her phone and checked the name. It read “Loan Some.” Her boss was calling.
“Hello?” she answered.
“Lily, I’m calling to schedule our next meeting. It will be in two days at the main office. Be here at two o’clock sharp. Thank you and goodbye.” He hung up.
For a brief moment, Lily stood there, staring at her phone.
Boy, she thought, he was fast and to the point.
She put her cell phone back in her pocket and decided it was time to go home.

Two days later, Lily was standing outside of Loan Some headquarters, conflicted and worried. What if she was going to get fired? She was lost in thought when she heard the town clock tower start to ring. The sound snapped her back into reality.
Shoot! She ran inside. I’m late!
Lily hopped into the elevator, her nerves racing faster with every passing floor to the fourth basement level. Finally, the light showed “B4” and the elevator dinged. Lily stepped out into an enormous room with bookshelves all over. As always, she was in awe of how beautiful and elegant the whole place looked and felt.
“You’re late, Ms. Stone.”
Lily slightly jumped at the voice. There was an old man standing next to her wearing a gentle smile. He had thin, gray hair on his head, big thick glasses, and a bushy mustache.
“I’m sorry. It won’t happen again, sir.”
“Sir? Haha.” His laugh was like the loud and deep growl of an old tiger. “Call me Mr. Bill. Follow me to the meeting room.”
Mr. Bill walked off, and Lily followed. Their footsteps echoed through the room as they walked to a big door. They went inside, and there was a long wooden table with a projection screen at the end of it. When Lily got into the room, she noticed there was a man sitting in the room already.
“Please have a seat, Ms. Stone. Also, let me introduce my senior staff member: Damen Cross. Damen, Ms. Lily Stone.”
The man spun around in his chair, revealing Damen to be the man from Zombie Con.
“Hello, Lily. Long time no see.” He winked at her, which made her heart skip a beat. Mr. Bill cleared his throat and sat down in a chair. Lily also sat down in a chair and looked at Mr. Bill.
“So, as you are probably aware, I sent Damen to Zombie Con to watch over your first assignment. And yes, he did tell me everything that happened. I also talked to Sarah.”
Lily hung her head, preparing to get fired.
“Although the assignment got a little hairy there at the end, don’t worry. You aren’t fired.” Mr. Bill smiled.
Lily was shocked.
“Really? But didn’t I mess up?”
Damen laughed. “Not enough to get fired over. Everyone screws up on their first job. I know I did. And heck, you did better on your first job than I did on mine.”
Damen gave Lily a dashing smile, and Lily found herself blushing.
Mr. Bill spoke up. “So now, you are here to review your next assignment.” Vote below on what will happen next or if reading by email click view poll.
