Her legs were hurting. She'd been crouching for an hour, just waiting for her target. This was the last job. She'd be set for life. One last assassination. That would be it. She rested her hand on her dagger. A masterpiece to behold and if one were to actually behold it, it would be the last sight they'd ever see. It was only two hands tall with a multifaceted green emerald in the pommel. The handle was wrapped with well-worn leather from use. The cross-guard was small and not so bulky like most. And the blade. Oh the blade. It was ever sharp even after so many kills and wounds. She'd crystallized diamond dust in the blood groove recently and it worked so well with the blade. The sheathe she kept it in was black with green quartz dotting it. She smiled as she recalled the horrible, evil man she'd stolen it from. As her thoughts drifted off about his eyes which always captured her attention, she realized they looked all too real. Her instincts kicked her back to reality as she ducked back into a roll. She looked up and those eyes stared at her. Confused, she focused her eyes and saw him clearly. She couldn't believe it. It was him again. He smiled wide and flinched as he jabbed his sword at her. She tucked back once more, drawing the dagger. Those eyes always had her stunned. They were intense, beautiful, mesmerizing. He swung the sword down on her. She pulled up the dagger above her head to block. She checked her surroundings once again. She was in a hallway, a small one. She had just been pushed out of a vent she had been hiding in. She had to get away from him. She looked around, trying to find an advantage. She'd just made it out with her life last time and had only managed the dagger out of luck. He pushed further, watching the dagger, his bright purple eyes showing his desire to have it back. He swung in for another attack and she took her opportunity, dashing in, dagger leading the way. That reluctantly satisfying squish as her dagger dug in was followed by a sharp pain in her back as he cut her with his sword. She twisted the dagger and turned to his side, holding his sword away as he tried to maim her. She looked up at him, looking for any clues, any weaknesses she could exploit. But once again, her eyes locked with his and she started to lose her composure. She reaffirmed her grip on the dagger, pulling it towards her. He should be done by now, but his smile stayed strong. He continued pushing while holding her other arm, trying to pull the dagger out. He wasn't going to hold out for much longer, she could tell. His sword arm was weakening, little by little. She was almost done. With one last burst of energy, she yanked the dagger out from his stomach and jabbed it into his heart. His smile fell with his sword. She noticed the dagger's pommel glow brightly, just for a second, as it always did when she killed someone. She held on to him, letting him lay down easily. She watched his eyes the whole time. They turned a dark shade of grey. She shook her head and stood back up. She wiped the dagger off on his shirt and went to put it away but stopped as she noticed the gem. It had turned purple, the same exact shade as the dead man's eyes. She thought nothing more of it and put it away. Openeing the contract, she re-examined the man. She had figured it'd be harder but she was done now. She grabbed his sword, cut off a lock of his hair and wiped the bottom of the contract over his wound. That would be more than enough evidence. She smiled. She finally had the rest of her life ahead of her, wide open, no more contracts. Maybe now, she could finally use the dagger for something else. Flame-light from a nice warm fireplace would light up the diamond dust nicely.
