She wondered had the deed been done; was Jim toast. She had carefully picked two ex-military rejects in need of cash. She had spent a little on upgrading their skills. As she had wanted Jim to die as he watched his pride and joy burn around him.
If the two assassins wanted their cash they were out of luck, for her girl friend had disabled their parachutes. Dacia had always loved manipulating individuals. Now she would teach Jessie never to trust again. For Dacia had never loved Jessie, just used her. Love, what was love but a tool to be used. She was looking forward to her plan for Jessie. Dacia’s two pet wolfs were hungry, Dacia had seen to that.

    Dacia’s two pet wolves will soon be able to eat. Chilling tale, Michael! A lot going on in your story. Great story!

      Thank you PJ, in some of my stories, Dacia has reappeared as the boss of an organisation called Force. So far Dacia has coursed trouble where ever she appears.

        Oh dear, not good then when Dacia appears in a story!

    Chilling take on this saga of the Force.

      Thank you yarnspinnerr. You are right, the Force has become a bit of a saga, so I am attempting to keep the lid on it sometimes. Mike

    Dacia is a nasty piece of work. Chillingly written. Perhaps Jessie won’t do the parachutes and the assassins will walk through the door and take her out.

      With hind sight the story could have done with only one assassin, Dacia. But we write what we write. I like that you saw a different overcome, it made me think about varying options for Dacia’s future. Mike

        Looking forward to where your thoughts will lead Dacia – should you write them.

        1. Michael Humphris

          It seems Dacia has a rather dark past and an even darker future, so I should be kept busy. Thank you Irene
