The agent scoffs and turns to his client. ”Listen, I know for a fact we can go down the street and get a movie that will pay you exactly what you’re worth…. we have an offer for that raunchy comedy. Remember what they were offering? We can walk out of here and have a deal before lunch…”
Tina glares at the agent. She then leans over and presses her intercom button. ”Kevin, get me Jacob Sanders’ agent on the phone, please…”
”Yes, ma’am…” her assistant says.
V looks up from his phone and looks at Tina. ”What?”
The agent closes his eyes and drops his head. ”Fuck…” he whispers.
V looks at his agent and wags his finger. ”You told me that lil asshole wasn’t up for this…”
”He’s not…” The agent gently says.

Tina leans back in her chair and shrugs. ”Am I taking this call or what?” She asks the agent.
The agent reluctantly sits down across from Tina. ”Let’s talk….”
Tina gently smiles and presses the intercom button. ”Tell him I’ll call them back…”
The agent shakes his head and chuckles. ”Well played…”
Tina folds her hands on her desk. ”I know…. now on to business….”
Later, Tina is eating lunch at her desk when her assistant sticks his head into the office.
”Hi, sorry to disturb you, boss, but there’s somebody at the gate who claims to be your oldest and best friend on the face of the fucking planet…. that’s a direct quote, by the way….”
