“ Silence! Our chief of staff is about to speak” hushed Hireling
“ I have three orders from king Luciff, successful execution will bring promotions in the ranks.”
“That’s what he said the last time, and it did not happen!” young tittle-tattle muttered.
“QUIET! I am about to speak.” Self-importance strutted back and forth while the other imps fretted with impatience.
“Okay this is it, we need a team to mess up the finances of the Smiths they live in Slack Street. That should be easy for you lot as it would take them a while before they realise any damage has been done. I suggest, greed, sluggard and stingy take them on”
“Hey sir,” Sluggard protested, “ The last time we launched attacked missiles was sent from the neighbouring street, we were out ranked ”
“That’s because we got carried away and took more than we should have.” Greed added.
Self-importance flicked some imaginary dust from his leather jacket.
“ Next order is for the Huxleys they live on Contest Corner, you are needed to wreck their marriage, and I suggest strife, jealousy and tittle-tattle to take them on.”
“Have you not heard?” Tittle-tattle whispered “ They have policemen on patrol on the street regularly.” “I would rather go to slack street.” Jealousy concurred.
Self importance looked at them with disdain “ Don’t worry their policemen are distracted at the moment because they are fighting among themselves about who is the most important, so they would not see you sneak in”
“Next Orders, The Godwins. They live on Alive Avenue we need you to afflict their twins with a rare disease the strategy is once the twins are destroyed we will take out the parents. They most be weakened by then. King Luciff says there are bonus points for them; he loathes them because they have inflicted much damage to his kingdom. Any Volunteers?”
Self importance looked around, some of the imps bowed their heads. “WELL ANY VOLUNTEERS” Self-importance hoped the other imps could not see that he was trembling.
Braggadocios spoke up “ I will take then on of course, but I am busy with another project that is much more important than those ones.”
“In that case I will appoint people myself. Fear, infirmity, bitterness King Luciff needs you.”
“We are not going. Not this time. Alive Avenue is littered with policemen. Their church members love each other so they cast fear out and they disinfect the place with the blood of you-know-who. Infirmity does not even get a look in. The Godwin’s stabbed us all night long with swords the last time we attempted a launch.”
