They don't even notice

Stupid men

They are to busy drooling over the half naked dancing goddess before them to notice that they are dropping dead

One by one

The blue silk billows around her like smoke

The alabaster silk that is her skin glides as fluidly as the silk she dances with

Her face is covered

A deep sapphire cloth masks her from me

But I still see her eyes

Those golden sunset eyes that melt my very soul

A nearly invisible dart shoots from the fluid movements of the woman in the cloth

It strikes a man not three feet from me and he falls dead instantly

Stupid men

They are all going to die and they don't even know it

The only reason I'm still breathing is because she hasn't seen me from my hiding place in the shadows

The blue smoke whips around as she dances her dance

Her dance of illusion

Her dance if death

My thoughts are cut short as a near invisible string of cloth flies from the smoke and wraps around some unsuspecting drunks neck

With one fluid move

His neck is snapped and he falls dead

I quietly move from my place in the shadows and make my way outside into the cold snowy night

I wait

A mere hour later

Her dance is done

They are all dead

I watch as she exits the building in her tight jeans and black shirt

I can hardly see her against the snow she is so white

I step out into the light of the full moon above

She smiles

"So you're the one hiding in the shadows"

Her voice is as silken as the cloth she used in her dance

I say nothing as I slowly walk up to the deadly woman and press my lips against hers in a passionate heated kiss

She doesn't notice the gun in my hand

Just as I didn't notice the poison on her lips

Everything goes black
