This was not his favorite day on earth. He had a meeting with the German consulate since he was the only one he knew of in ranks who could speak German, and it had been going on since he came in at 9:00. Now, two hours later, things were heated, and he was starting to feel more than frustrated right now. Couldn't this man clearly see he was wrong? The leader sighed, bending forward, a hand on the edge of the desk as he breathed heavily through his nose, staring a the wall to try to calm down before glancing back at the consulate, who was still babbling on and on about his point. Ok, that was it. He was done with this! "Nein, nein, nein, nein!"1 he practically roared before standing erect and looking at his surprised companion.
"Es wird nicht funktionieren. Es wird einfach nicht funktionieren! Wie oft muss ich das sagen?"2 Trevor sighed, giving his guest a chance to calm down. He looked practically striken. No doubt his reputation preceded him--that or Fierro had somehow managed to make him think that he was insane via some complicated miming. ""Hören sie, damit alles möglichst reibungslos abläuft, müssen sie mir zuhören. Ich habe bereits all ihre Punkte widerlegt."3 As the man before him remained quiet, simply staring, Trevor waved him off. ""Ach! Hinaus! Wir sind fertig."4
The man quickly gathered his executive binder and walked quickly out, not wasting time. This made Trevor laugh as he sat down before glancing at his clock. Any time now. He'd decided he was tired of sandwiches and salad before coming to work, so he'd left the feat up to the slaves who knew better than to attempt to poison him. They would be dying, too, and he would likely make it to Mungo's in time. At least, he'd hope. But any moment now he would be receiving his mystery lunch, delivered by a mystery slave. It was only a matter of a handful of seconds or minutes.
1 "No, no, no, no!"
2 "It won't work. It simply won't work. How many times must I say that?"
3 "Listen, for this to work, you must listen to me. I have already refuted your points."
4 "Ach! Leave. We are finished."
((Meh, not my best, but I figured that having him torture someone and her walk in would not be a good idea, lol.))
