No, not another unpleasant DM from some creep on LinkedIn.
But an actual fox. Sat in the moonlight in the back garden.
"Nice to see you. Again". Dani thought to herself, a hint of bitterness at the "again".
Because she had to be up in five hours for a meeting with that potential new client. Not the best project in the world, and certainly not well paid, but any port in a storm.
And she had at least an hour to go to finish this bit of work too.
But if she could get it done tonight, hopefully before 3am, she could send it for approval and invoice the client before the end of the week.
What's the date? The 17th? So they may even pay before the 29th (thank goodness for leap years) and she wouldn't have to borrow off her mum again.
The fans spun up on her laptop as she returned to VSCode. They sounded very loud in the night air.
