"Hello brother," I hailed the form who had appeared, then moved to clasp hands in greeting.

"Hello to you. How are you this fine night?" A glance upward accompanied his query.

"Curious. Is there a new mission from our superiors?"

"Of sorts."

His enigmatic answer was curious; he laughed at my expression. "It's special; a retrieval."

"The target?"

His answer stunned me; he had to be mistaken.


I turned, and so failed to see his smile; never saw his movements before pain started. My only last thought before the world would fade to black.

'He has betrayed us all.'


A/N: So, what you think? The other chapters are mapped out and in process. I'll probably have another chapter up by Friday.
