    Stealth~Chapter 3

    Ugh.<p>
    The suit was so stiff l could hardly move. I had no idea of how to put on the tie. Why was l doing this? I asked myself for the millionth time. Money, l always replied.<p>
    Money.<p>
    The idea sent thrills of excitement down my back. I was an assassin, after all; for one to kill someone on another's orders was difficult, and l usually didn't get paid the exact amount l desired. A job offer in the form of a corporate dinner would probably pay big.<p>
    I ignored the feeling that my newest client could not be trustworthy.<p>
    I crossed the room and looked into the mirror hung on the wall of my cramped apartment.<br>
    My hair had been slicked down with gel. I had grudgingly spritzed myself with the bottle of cologne l would probably never use again. Perfumes and colognes make scents in the air around you, and an assassin will be easily tracked down if they enjoy wearing it. I decided not to use the necktie.<p>
    I left, locking the door firmly behind me. The elevator took me to the bottom floor, and l hit the streets.<p>
    Ninaro watched Shade walk down the city sidewalk from the shadows. He was dressed correctly...that was very good. His lord would be happy with him, hopefully. It had been his own choice.<br>
    Ninaro pulled a walkie-talkie from his robes. "Hello? Bounty hunter crossing, crossing...on Senhir Road. Almost there."<p>
    These expensive shoes were pinching my feet. But l could put up with a small amount of pain for the plump feel of money in my pouch.<br>
    I pulled the crumpled letter from my pocket and checked the address. Vemeri Drive. Good, l was just about to go there. Now what street was l on now?<br>
    I was so much better at navigating the streets of the Borusi underworld, also known as, to many, as the "Borusi Place of Sin."<br>
    I headed across the street and into the Vemeri neighborhood.<p>
    I had never seen anything like it.<p>
    Sprawling mansions with lavish gardens, towers, turrets, balconies, patios, decks, pools, and courtyards stood before me. Only Borusi's elite could afford these. I pumped my fist silently. This man was obviously extremely wealthy, and that meant even more pay.<p>
    I found the house number and knocked.<p>
    The door swung open, and l stepped into a high-ceilinged, marble-floored foyer with a tubular glass elevator spiraling up in the middle. A pleasant female voice started to speak.<br>
    "Name?"<br>
    "Sh-Shade."<br>
    "Occupation?"<br>
    "Assassin."<br>
    There was the sound of clicking and whirring, and then a tiny *ding*.<br>
    "Thank you for coming," the female voice welcomed, as the door to the elevator slid open.<br>
    The elevator made me dizzy. There was a control panel with buttons to different rooms, so l pressed the one labeled Formal Dining Room and hoped l was right.<p>
    I was.<p>
    The Formal Dining Room was as fancy as its name, consisting of a long table with a creamy white tablecloth. I looked around and realized l was not the only one there.<p>
    Nine other people stood in the room near me. I could tell by their fit, well-muscled forms that they were assassins.<p>
    Like me.<p>
    A man entered. He was pale and bald, looking like he had never seen daylight. His robes were long and bloodred. He clapped his hands. "Shall we get started?"
