Coming out of my writing cave today to post this one. Cannot believe it's already Sunday, and time for the Six Sentence Sunday snippet, too. Time is flying, and thank goodness, taking this awful winter along with it. One more month of cold and humidity and rain and extreme sleepiness/hibernation instincts to slug through. Even blogging is difficult in this kind of setup, but I wouldn't for the life of me give up on the Sunday post!
Let's go back to summery Nice, shall we? Except that, what I'm about to show you has nothing light and fluffy and warm to it... My heroine slash assassin slash spy slash borderline-sociopath is carrying out her mission - getting rid of her targets on this assignment.
Last week, we saw how she dispatched Boris, her "husband's" right-hand man. Today, it's Nikolai's turn to meet with death. Remember, too - Kali has paralysed them using a sonic taser, and time is running out before the effects wear off on Nikolai...
Once again - the scene to follow is not for the faint of heart.
Rayne swooped down and grabbed the empty 9x18mm bullet case; if the second part of her plan didn't work, she'd need proof that Nikolai had fired—the empty case would have to be in the vicinity of Nikolai's body, not close to Boris.
She moved over to Nikolai, dropped the empty case at his feet, and then wrapped his left hand around the gun's handle. Next, she brought up his limp hand, pressed the silencer's tip to his temple, and then fired. Thanks to the suppressor and the short length of the Makarov's barrel, the bullet didn't carry too much velocity and pierced through his skull without a big spray of blood and gore. Still, she took no chances and jumped away when the shot fired, to take the least amount of blowback spatter possible.
Part one of the plan complete....'
Ridding the world of scum does not mean the one who made the kill can end up with a squeaky-clean conscience. Is this what Rayne aka Kali is about to experience?
