‘Two? But there’s three of us?’ The large man pointed out, looking confused.

‘You’re correct, there are. I said two,’ the assassin continued, as the crew backed away from the large man. ‘I’m going to have to kill you,’ he whispered in the large man’s ear. The large man swung his chubby right arm at the assassin, who grabbed his wrist with his right hand, pulling him in and punching the wind out of him. The back of his arm hunched the large man over.

‘Goodbye,’ the assassin muttered, calmly letting go of his wrist and putting a hand on either side of the man’s head and swiftly, as if he’d done it many times before, he broke the man’s neck. He was dead before he hit the floor. He stared back at Damien and Sergei who gasped in horror at the assassin’s efficient killing.

‘Those who wage war against me will lose every battle. They shall die.’ He turned to address Sergei directly. ‘Oh, by the way, that pet you threatened Igor with is dead. You’re just as cowardly as Mr Gaston, you can’t even kill an enemy yourself.’ The assassin pulled a few paper notes from his pocket, tossing them over the large man’s lifeless body.

‘To cover his replacement,’ he said, before turning on them. 'Fail to retrieve that nuclear warhead and there won’t be enough guards in the world to save you. Either of you.' The crew exited by the door, which Dave held open. The assassin and Raul nodded goodbye to Sergei and Damien.

‘One last thing,’ the assassin said. ‘If you ever put her in danger again, if you ever hurt or kill her. . .’ He grabbed Damien and Sergei and pulled them close together, so that the three of them were inches from one another. ‘I will take everything from you that you hold most dear and tear the life from it in front of your very eyes. When I’m done with you, you’ll beg me to kill you and I’ll leave you there to rot,’ he spat. ‘Do I make myself absolutely clear?’ Sergei and Damien both nodded stiffly. ‘Good,’ the assassin smiled, slapping their faces playfully. He tossed the gun out of the open window into the empty courtyard.

The assassin closed the door behind him as he left.

‘Have a good day.’
