When Fabia's childhood friend Augustin knocks on her door and asks for her to help, things don't go as planned. She gets turned around and caught by the Shadow Assassins. They are looking for Augustin, and want her to kill him.
"That friend of yours," the man smiles slyly, "we need him dead."
I glare at him, "What makes you think I'll kill him?"
"For one," he says softly, "your family is at stake, and I would assume you have at least some anger towards him?"
It is true, I do. I am very angry with Augustin. "Why do you want him dead?" I ask, it is safer than the other questions I want to ask.
"He is a criminal." The man answers simply.
"OK," I said, "What do you want me to do?"
He grinned and his eyes glinted with amusement. "That part's simple."
