Esteemed Mr Wyndam-Pryce,

I am so happy to hear that your unfortunate business with the loss of Angel's soul was resolved in a satisfactory manner. Again, I wish to stress how sorry I am for the way the spell turned out (although this should under no circumstances be taken as an admission of any legal responsibility).

However, I hate to remind you that the muo-ping which was used to house Angel's soul is a priceless, sacred, ancient object retailing at $69,995.99. I understand and respect that you had to break it in order to retrieve the soul, but since you've only paid the refund deposit of $25 I humbly include the attached invoice for $69,970.99, which I must ask that you pay within 14 days.

I hope you will not take this amiss, and that we will have the opportunity to do more business at a future point.

Yours faithfully,
Wo-Pang

Hello Fred,

forwarding the invoice as agreed. Cordelia's e-mail is bouncing, for some reason.

Hi all,

As far as I can figure, Cordy or whatever we're supposed to call her now changed the password to the internet bank before she disappeared. Yup, she's evil. I can crack it, but it's going to take a while and besides I really don't think we've got $70,000 on it right now. Suggestions?

Love,
Fred

Are we sure he's human? Can't we just slay him?

And why the hell is Wesley in on our financial situation? He hired the guy, let him pay if he wants.

Subject: Reminder

Esteemed and honored friends,

just a small reminder that the bill is as of yet unpaid. I realize that the deadline has not yet been reached, and I feel certain that you will pay before it is, so please just consider this a reassurance that the Kun-Sun-Dai never hire attourneys to pursue non-paying customers. We find it works much better to simply take the souls of those who refuse to pay our modest fees. Naturally, this is always a last resort, and as previously stated, I am certain that you will want to preserve the good nature of our business relationship.

Yours faithfully,
Wo-Pang

Hi Willow!

Thanks a lot for stopping by the other day, I had a blast. Hope your apocalypse is going well!

Anyway, hate to bring this up, but it seems that mystical jar you broke was worth a lot of money. And as grateful as we are for your help, we're in a bit of a financial jam at the moment and since it *was* you that broke it, I was just wondering if you or the Watcher's Council can chip in on paying for it?

Love,
Fred

Hiya Fred!

So good to hear from you. Things have been pretty hectic around here, so I'm afraid I have to keep this a bit short.

Just how much money are we talking about, exactly? I'll check with Giles, cause the whole "rich Jews" thing - not so much true in my case. Besides, the rental car I used to get to LA set me back a bit, especially with the blood in the back seat and Faith chainsmoking, and with everyone getting out of Sunnydale the banks are pretty much out of cash right now.

Anyway, hope we can get together to discuss those texts at some point!

PS: I guess, I kinda prefer lilies myself.

Hi guys,

it seems the Sunnydalians are too busy to help out. Really not keen on losing my soul over a few thousand bucks. Any ideas on how to get the money or get Wo-Pang off our backs? Don't we have any new clients or anything like that?

Love,
Fred

Make sure this gets paid as quickly and as discreetly as possible. Part of a deal. Ask any questions and I'll make sure you end up down here with me quicker than you can say "please stop boiling me in my own urine".

Esteemed Mr Wyndam-Pryce,

congratulations on your new employment! I have had many dealings with Wolfram & Hart in the past, and I am sure that you will enjoy your new position.

Anyway, I was pleased to receive payment of that unfortunate little invoice – two days late, but who's counting, right? As this business is now concluded, I hope that you will communicate this to the legal department of Wolfram & Hart, and especially the goons you've had posted outside my office for the last 48 hours.

It's been a pleasure doing business with you!

Yours faithfully,
Wo-Pang
