Fundraiser

by Marcus L. Rowland

The party's lavish, but Sam knows who's paying. He circulates around the hall, speaks to celebrities, holds a glass but doesn't drink. Eventually someone leads him to the back room where the real business will be done. The man waiting has dark hair, and a check for $250,000.

"I'm sorry," says Sam, "My instructions are to refuse your donation."

"Would you prefer cash?"

"No."

"Okay." He smiles. "Then I'd like to make a personal donation instead, nothing to do with Wolfram and Hart."

"I'm sorry," Sam says again.

"It's okay." Clearly it isn't.

Sam apologises again and leaves him brooding.
