The Assassin

Extracts from this document...


There in the midst of Beijing, he stood motionless, waiting. In the shadows behind the dragon king restaurant stood the infamous assassin Kung Lao. He was a member of the Shinobo clan, who were a large group of ruthless fighters, and had no qualms about killing people. It was a bitter night, but Kung was a dedicated individual, and resumed his pursuit for the owner of the restaurant, Ricky Tan. He would receive a handsome payment if he succeeded. However in this assassination attempt, money was no object as Kung had loathed Ricky ever since they were young apprentices at the Kojo martial arts school.

    shouted the assassin, rapidly filling with rage. Suddenly he lunged forward towards Dorian with the razor-sharp dagger in his hand arcing in the air to meet with Dorian's jugular. But he was too fast - in one swift movement he was out of the room and out into the night.
