[Pall and Pen] Saboteur
"I'm telling you, I want it done."
"But Sir, I'm not auth--"
"Yes, Sir. But if he finds out you know..."
"Of course I damn well know..." The two men that spoke were talking via a computer. From one screen young man could be seen to be seated in an office, the night sky lit up by the moon through the window. On his screen, the image he was talking to was barely lit. Only an outline could be seen through the camera - no details could be made out, the voice distorted by some kind of machine.
"I want this done, Jacob."
"It'll be done. But it'll take time."
"You have a week. If it's not done, you will be."
"I'm getting right to it." The man was sweating, showing his fear for the unknown man, the only name they knew him by was Silhouette. No one knew who he was and that's the way he wanted it. He couldn't afford to have this life mixed with his real life. This life was the complete opposite of his other life. If he was found out it would ruin him and his family. That was a price he refused to pay. At all costs he was to remain as Silhouette.
"I'm telling you, Mel, he was sooooo hot. Gorgeous. Dreamy. He's my next boyfriend, I'm telling you." Jenna spoke over the phone to her best friend, swearing that she was in love with a man she didn't even know.
On the other end Mel rolled her eyes. "What was his name and where did you meet him?"
"At the library. And I don't know, I never spoke to him. But it was in the finance section. I checked after." Jenna Hart told her, moving her red hair hair out of her face. The twenty-one year old girl was the politician's daughter. Well known. Her mother was a well known model and her mother wanted Jenna to go down that path, but as the only child, her father wanted her smart enough to take over the business eventually. Or at least marry someone who could if all else failed.
Jenna had no interest in the business though. And despite that she was still trying to do what her father wanted. At 5'2, she was a little on the short side for a model, but her mother was trying to pull strings for her. Jenna had no interest in that either. She was interested in boys and shopping currently. They were really her only interests. She looked more like her mother than her father, where her father was tall with a muscular build, greyish-black hair, and blue eyes - her mother had red hair and green eyes, just like Jenna.
"You at the library?" Mel laughed.
"I'm failing my course. He's going to kill me, you know. My father. When he gets the grades he'll kill me. I'm telling you." She frowned.
"I'm sure it's not that bad." For a few minutes they continued to speak before Jenna said her goodbyes. She was not too far from home and she had to finish packing. Like two teenage girls they'd gossiped first about boys and then about how Jenna was moving in with Mel and her family tomorrow. Her house was closer to campus and she was going to help around the house and contribute to some rent and food. Plus, she didn't want to live with her parents anymore, but hadn't had the heart to say that to them.
And she was so excited about tomorrow. It was going to be amazing. Jenna was so lost in imagining what it was going to be like living with her best friend that she almost missed the sound down an alleyway. Some part of her should have told her to carry on walking. It was dark without any lights down there. Anything could have been going on. Common sense should have over ridden her brain and told her to carry on walking. But Jenna didn't have much common sense so down the alley she went.
She crept down further into the darkness. Whatever was happening down there got louder and she thought she could see two shadows. Jenna wanted to get closer to see exactly what was going on. It was going good until suddenly she tripped over something making a loud clatter and an 'oomph' as she landed face first into the ground. Great. Just great. Whoever was there was bound to have seen her now.
