She killed a man not 15 paces away. He was wearing a billowing outfit, he stuck out like a sore thumb. She’d seen him do someone else in before. She had laughed to herself, thinking he was like a feather pillow that stabs. The pillow that stabs. She giggled to herself. Who said a courtesan couldn’t also be a crazy loon?
She stopped and sat down on a wooden bench, obviously tired and getting the feeling someone new was on her trail. She pushed her hair off her shoulders and crossed her legs as she leaned against the wall behind her. She looked up, the sun casting strange shadows above the building in front of her. Her gaze made it’s way up the building. The Doctor she had saved earlier was leaning over the edge of the building, glaring at her through the creepy mask. It sent chills up her spine.
It would have been her instinct to run, dodge around buildings and hide before attempting to knock him unconscious as he would run by her. But there was someone behind him. He was creeping up on the doctor, it looked like a soldier. What the hell was he doing up there? She watched him tap the Doctor on the shoulder and quickly slip away.
The doctor quickly grabbed at his throat. She could hear him gasping for air before falling from the roof and landing in a dying lump on the ground. His syringe slipped from his hands as she stood smiling at her would be killer and then ran, closing the gates behind her.
Laughter broke the silence.
“HA! Did you see that?!” Brian says.
I’m already laughing, “Of course I did! You saved me!”
“You’re a bastard, Brian.” Cody murmurs over the headset.
I just keep giggling.
