100-Word Challenge, Day 343

Don’t break the circle, Tony.’ The bald man spat at the other man’s feet. “It’s all you’ve been squawking about since I got here.” Tony took a careful step into the circle, careful not to touch any of the chalk markings on the floor. Each step closer to the center was placed with care. He did not worry about an Angel coming to rescue the girl, but his boss told him not to mess with the circles, and he definitely didn’t want to upset his boss.

When Tony reached the center of the circle he stood within an arm’s breadth of the girl. Her mumbling continued, his presence unnoticed. “What, the hell did you give her?” he asked as he stepped closer.
