The Assassin

Extracts from this document...


The Assassin The sun was getting lower in the sky the street was at that time when it wasn't day time but not yet night. It was a bitterly cold January evening. He noticed as he checked his watch that he had been waiting for about and hour. The lonely street was silent except for a dog howling in the distance. Still he waited at the edge of the fierce wood. An icy wind was starting to pick up, the trees swayed around him. The harsh breeze stung the side of his face. Dark storm clouds gathered in the sky covering the moon. There were few stars visible.

Everything was quiet as she stood there with her back to him completely unaware of what was about to happen. He pulled the trigger and everything seemed to slip into slow motion. The glass in her hand shattered onto the floor. Shortly after she fell to the floor too. He stood there for a moment and everything began to catch up with him. He watched as deep red blood slowly creped over the white carpet. Now he must make his escape. The rain had stopped now he noticed as he opened the front door. He hadn't thought his far. He pulled his coat up around him once more and made a run for the woods opposite. He began to walk deeper into the wood. He got out his mobile phone and dialled the number. The phone rang for a few seconds. A man with a deep voice answered "Hello" "I've done it Sam, she's dead" Tessa Price ...read more.
