I lied about having lunch with Derek. He’s on a mission to kill the king of Ocundar.
Wherever that is.
Skylar has coal black hair and the bluest eyes that I’ve ever seen. She is really pretty and full of intelligence.
A real brains and beauty.
“Hey,” I said, as I opened the door of Skylar’s office.
She looked up.
“Oh, hi!” she exclaimed, as she took off her lab coat.
Her hair caused a “swish, swish” sound when she re-tied her ponytail. “I totally forgot about the lunch. Let’s go!”
“That’s ok,” I handed her the papers that were in my suitcase. “Sabrina told me to give you these. And she wants the DNA results by Friday.”
“Sure, I can give it to her by Wednesday. Oh, cool watch, by the way.”
Skylar grabbed her bag and hooked her arm into mine. I smiled as we headed out the door into the bright sunshine.
“So, when are we going back to our hometown?” Skylar asked me while she sipped on a cup of green tea.
We’re sitting near a bar near the K.H. Our people often come here to talk about missions.
The owner of this place is actually one of the brightest killers we ever had: Austin Gibbery.
He’s the boss of this place, and the bartender.
Austin retired after he got shot on a mission. The bullet hit him right in the head. And it’s still there.
I didn’t see Austin today, or else I would have ordered a glass of martini from him.
Best martini in the whole district.
“It depends on when M gives us our three-week vacation,” I replied.
“Well, I can’t wait to see Aunt Irene and our cousins,” Skylar beamed at me. “You totally deserve this break for all the things you did for M.”
Yeah, that’s right, Skylar is my cousin.
“Oh, it’s nothing,” I said. “I volunteered to work for M in the first place and I will never regret it.”
We chatted some more until I accidentally glanced at my new watch.
Time was ticking away.
“I guess I have to go,” I said. “I still have to type the report about my last mission and send it to M.”
“Oh, I have to get going too, I’m meeting Ria to talk about some new gadgets she made,” said Skylar, as she looked up from her tea.
We stood up.
“Ok, see you tomorrow,” I nodded to her.
“Bye,” she smiled a dazzling smile and started towards the subways.
I headed off the other direction, smiling, with the setting sun behind me.
