Harry’s limp body was sprawled in the back alley, blood stain on his shirt blossoming under the street light.
“You fucked me up real bad.”
She stood over him, inhaling the night air inwrought with the scent of death.
“I would never thought old Carfano would send his own daughter after me. Was any of it real….or just another job?”
The second bullet entered his brain, extinguishing the light in his eyes, freezing the questioning smile on his lips.
Like moths to the flame, they were drawn to her. Walking away, she flexed her shaking hand. Just another job.

  1. Makes me think immediately of “The Sting” i.e. the female hitman (woman) who was given to job of killing Robert Redford – but only after they’d shacked up for the night. Very visual. Cheers!

  2. That a woman is a killer always makes me doubly sad. I remember my Mum telling me when she was growing up on a farm, women would not slaughter chickens because they were considered to to be life-givers, not life-takers. But your story is wonderfully told.

    I love the music, it fits perfectly. Great story with so much there, but not said. I also noticed the shaking hand, and that she was the (probably) boss’s daughter. Doing her work, I guess, no matter what.
