THE ASSASSIN The huge modern edifice leered down taunting the lesser buildings. The wind howled by as if in agonizing pain. The great spotlight on top of the Bateson building penetrated the unforgiving black night. The rows and rows of slippery Washington elm tress swayed to and fro as the wind picked up. Electric white icicles drooped depressingly of the edge of the hard cold perimeter walls. The immeasurable steel gate bowed down to the oncoming security guards. The building was an impenetrable fortress no one went in without going through a series of harsh and costly precautions of course there was the one exception Mr. Bateson the company chairman and criminal mastermind his influence spread from Tokyo to Honolulu. He was a known criminal and everyone was after him from rival criminals to the F.B.I A week before: A man was parked in a seedy, dingy part of London.

He grabbed the long silver gutter and began climbing using the brackets as foot holes. The assassin was trying to remain inconspicuous while he was passing windows and looking down at the 100's of security guards he began to wonder how easy it was getting here. He finally got to a ledge. He stopped to catch his breath. Then he carried on pushing himself as hard as his body would let him, he had to be fast. The roof taunted down at the assassin but eventually the assassin found a strong foot hole and gripped the edge and pulled himself up.
