Short Story: Like Anyone Else

The men at the table had a wicked reputation. They killed, they stole, they destroyed.

They also had team dinners at restaurants like anyone else.

“Here’s to the newbie graduating into team leader,” one said as he raised a glass in the air.

“To the newbie surviving long enough to be a team leader.”

The men happily clinked their glasses and chatted away at perfectly ordinary topics.

That was fine with her. It was easier to serve customers when they played nice. Like this, they were just like anyone else, and she provided them service as she would anyone else.

At the end of their meal, the men called her over and handed her an envelope.

“Tip for your excellent service.”

The men at the table had a wicked reputation. They killed, they stole, they destroyed.

And they tipped like anyone else.

“Thank you. Have a lovely day and we hope to see you again.”
