🖤Never step between an assassin and his prey…
Excerpt from ASSASSIN’S MENACE…
Now that my wound is taken care of, I prepare to make an exit as quickly as I can, but before I reach my rolled-up coat on the opposite side of the room, Cain says, “A big guy, a knife, and an old lady.”
I snatch up my coat, take a deep breath, and spin back to him, my expression deliberately blank. “Like I said to the doctor, I got in the way.”
Cain levels his gaze with me. We’re standing on opposite sides of the room, but his presence is somehow magnified despite the distance.
He says, “Here’s what I know: That guy wasn’t trying to rob the lady. He was trying to kill her. You stopped him and somehow disarmed him. I want to know how you did that.”
My thoughts scatter and my stomach plummets. He knows what really happened, and now he’s talking as if he knows the knife is hidden in my coat. But how? And what am I going to do?
Cain lifts himself off the wall, unfolding his arms. “But what I really want to know is who you are.”
An object glints in his fist.
I fight the impulse to freeze, patting my coat very slowly, checking the location of the knife. My stomach sinks with every touch that confirms my fears.
The knife isn’t where I left it.
Cain is holding it.
My brief vacation into a world where people take care of each other is over.
Now I have to fight for my life all over again.
