never mind the written word

"so, did you read the contract?". "what's there to read?"
"oh you must read it once, i absolutely plead,
the terms and the conditions, the bold and the fine print"
he raised an aging brow, in the manner of a hint.

the aging lawyer was worth his salt, the mercenary no less
'there's a twist in the contract, the young fella won't even guess'
pondered the old lawyer, wondering if he should help
not knowing that the mercenary's target was his own self.
