"Listen up, for I will only say this ONCE!" he said in a booming voice. "You are to find the Vicomte and his fiancée and bring them to me unharmed. Are we understood?"

"Yes, but how much are we to be paid for our services?" the other man said.

"As much as I see fit to give you. Now go." He answered and was gone as quickly and silently as he came.
