“Okay, okay. I’m here ’cause a friend of mine needs a little help.”
Zamir rose an eyebrow. “I see.”
Raz rolled his eyes. “That you don’t. It’s the bigger picture.”
“Oh? Please do explain.”
That made the other man scowl. “I ain’t lookin’ for assistance on this.”
“Why not? Didn’t you help me without my offering you anything in return?”
That caused Raz some pause. Zamir knew the man wasn’t used to someone owing him, because he appeared to be the type of person who was more used to just taking things ahead of time to avoid it. Shachaf knew how to deal with those people. Without that connection, Zamir doubted that Raz would have helped him in the first place.
Which meant Raz wasn’t used to a situation like this.
“Why don’t you tell me what is going on? If I can help you, what do you have to lose?”
