The Assassin.

Extracts from this document...


The Assassin. He moved briskly under the dark cloudy sky, quite unaware of the dismal rain which had begun to seep carelessly through his musty sable jacket. The dreary midnight moon peeped out from behind the drifting black blanket which covered the sky. His jagged facial features were highlighted as he hastily proceeded up the high slope. His face was long and pale. His grey staring eyes appeared cruel and motionless in the darkness of the night. He had thick black bags under his eyes as if he had not slept in days. His blue bloodless lips were pierced by sharp fangs, which gnawed ravenously into them. In his thin bony hand, something glinted. It was a gun.

Each light symbolised one of his victims. There must have been at least ten of them hovering above him.
