He has to make a decision that could cost a life. She's the life that's in danger.
Meet Sebastian Kripps, best killer for the black ops organization called The Veil. Known to be cold, emotionless, and the best at what he does. Once upon a time, he was recruited to endure an intense program through Veil and train for his life. Mistakes are punishable by death. Now, he must play his part and pick a recruit to contribute to the program.
And this time there's no room for mistakes. Especially if his feelings get involved.
Meet Corinne Blaine, the lucky winner who's chosen to participate in the Veil training program. She started as a bartender, but little did she know there were bigger plans in play for her. The Veil pressures your body, your mind, your soul. With Sebastian as her mentor, will she be able to make it?
And what else will happen when her emotions get involved too?
My mind is working overtime and I'm out of ideas. The guy who was quiet starts coming closer than the rest. They seem to let him. I glance frantically between them, trying to figure out what their game is.
"Back away or I swear to god-"
"You'll do what? Huh? What are you gonna do to four guys when you're one person?" the quiet guy speaks for the first time.
I know the voice, I just can't quite place it. He starts walking towards me, too close.
"Just stop," I say, but he keeps moving closer.
That's it. I make a decision to fight back when he takes the cloth covering his face off. The person revealed is not one I expected to see. My guard drops and I look at him in confusion.
"Sebastian?" I ask.
That moment of shock was all they needed. My guard was down and they took their opportunity.
