|“I am frightened of nothing."
"Are you extremely frightened of nothing?"
"Absolutely terrified of it."
"I have nothing in my pockets. Would you like to see it?"
"No, I most definitely would not.”
― Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys
Arania is a quiet woman, seemingly taking in every situation, her eyes maybe staring a bit too much. A sudden smile, a hint of malevolence. Something a bit inhuman, calculating.
She is taller than average, slender, her fingers tend to be constantly in motion, dexterous and deliberate, not anxious or fidgety.
She works as an independent investment broker, serving a small, select clientele.
At least that is what she wants everyone to believe. A spider is best served when one does not realize there is a web, until it is too late.
