The Assassin

Extracts from this document...


He had to do the job- for the money. The job was simple to him, although the same person he was after had mysteriously escaped him the previous time... He felt an electrifying shiver spinning down his spine. It was late in the evening. There was pitch-black darkness surrounding him. The person stood there, as still as a statue, on a hillside above a lonely house. The shadow moved attentively from left to right and then back again. He was lost in his thoughts. "What am I doing? Am I doing the right thing?" echoed the strong voice in his mind. "I've already started, and now I must finish what I have begun," he muttered under his breath.

He laid flat on the floor, like a statue- he was dead. His sweet death was what the assassin had wanted. His face glowed joy and triumphant. He was victorious. He had accomplished his mission. The assassin made his get away. His eyes stared wildly around, looking from left to right, making sure know-one was following him.

The misty shadow disappeared into the darkness. ...read more.
