After setting his goggles into place, he fixed the long, smooth scope of his sniper rifle according to plan. He carefully inspected the weapon he relied on for all these years, perfect for quick and easy assassinations. Right above the trigger, a symbol of an angel with his wings scratched out. After listening to the many trains that screamed across the border of the city, his radio buzzed in some static along with a raspy voice that said ¨Three minutes until the target arrives...¨ The assassin was smiling, knowing another bundle of cash was going to be in his cold, dirty hands. However, he still had a habit of felling nervous, as one hand gripped on the handle while the other shook on the trigger. This vibration triggered the memory. He tried shaking it off but it did not help. Images of his childhood flew in his mind. A old man, police sirens and a heart made out of clockwork mechanisms, each heartbeat raised the unfamiliar static which woke him up from this painful trance. ¨Wake up! He´s here!¨ The voice yelled through the radio. ¨Don´t get your panties in a twist..." the assassin finally muttered....

 

¨There she is! She´s running into the left alley!¨ a soldier yells while firing into the pitch black alleys, flashes of light illuminating the girl´s figure every time a soldier fired. The girl continues to run along the only path she sees, with each turn she hears the voices of the mercenaries fading away. Then she stops, not because she is safe, but a dead end. Then the voices returned, along with them heavy footsteps. ¨She went this way!¨ a soldier cries out, the girl stays quiet and crouches behind a trash can. Four soldiers discover her, but now she stands, hands behind her back, staring directly at the solders. ¨Put your hands up Jessica! Your father demands you return right now!¨ a soldier yells. The young girl nods and slowly raises her hands behind her back, revealing two pistols in each hand. ¨Open fire---¨ the soldier´s voice cut off by screams of terror, the girl unleashes a barrage of bullets into all four soldiers. One by one they fall to the ground, she stops firing. The girl slides her back on a wall of the alley and a single tear forms from her left eye, falls down her cheek, and lands in a puddle of blood that appeared from the many wounds of a soldier´s corpse. She takes one finger and slides it across her mouth, feeling one of the many stitches that keeps it closed...
