PostSubject: A Trail of Blood   Thu Jan 26, 2012 12:21 am

((Continued from Visiting the Dearly Departed in the graveyard.))

Matthew entered the park and began walking on a trail that was well worn. He saw a person only occasionally. The wear had come from years of light traffic, not a short period of heavy traffic. He kept checking his watch. Eventually he sat down on a bench that he had come across. Another man was sitting there. "Nice day isn't it?" remarked the man.
"That it is," said Matthew. He took a deep breath and checked his watch one last time. Without hesitation he reached into his coat and pulled out a silenced pistol which he shoved against the mans chest, firing three times. He quickly picked up the shells and put his sunglasses and jacket onto the dead man. He removed a headset from the jacket pocket, which he put on. Matthew positioned the body so that it was laying down on the bench facing the back of it. To passers by, just a bum sleeping in the park. Matthew began to walk away. The trail had multiple routes one could take, and so he went through a different path than the one he had arrived in, winding up in a totally different part of the park. While on the trails he put on the headset and spoke briefly in a whisper. "Ellen, the target has been eliminated."
"Acknowledged," said a female voice on the other end. Matthew put his headset back into his pocket. A few minutes later he emerged from the trails on the opposite end of the park.

Aveira was following him. She'd been lounging in a tree as she was wont to do when an interesting man had walked by. She recognized his killer's aura instantly. She herself had the same aura and wore it proudly. When she saw the man nonchalantly murder another person in broad daylight in the middle of a semi-public area, she felt almost giddy with excitement. She had to follow him. When would she have another chance at meeting someone as interesting as this? Besides, he wasn't bad to look at. Not bad at all...

Matthew, unaware of his observer, frowned as he stood at the edge of the trail looking at the rest of the park. He wouldn't mind actually enjoying this park. When the body was found it'd be closed for days, and he absolutely couldn't stay. If he were anywhere near here when the body was found... He didn't know how long it'd take. Someone could try to shoo the bum out of the park upon discovery. He intended to be gone before then. He hoped it would take longer than that, though. "The Bystander Effect is wonderful for my job," he thought.

A thrill of excitement ran through Aveira. She'd just had the best idea! Silently retrieving her metal stakes, she threw one past the man's neck and tugged on the connecting chain between the two weapons. If he didn't do anything to stop it, the metal stake would wrap around his throat. She'd pull him to her and have him under control in less than a minute. Then she could play with him all she wanted!

Matthew reflexively dove away from the chain. When he stood again, he acknowledged that it was a chain and he took a few quick steps at a run to move back into the trail, at which point he drew his gun, with the suppressor still attached. His eyes followed the chain up the tree, where he pointed his gun.

Aveira grinned happily. She liked her toys being feisty. It made it all the more fun when she finally succeeded in capturing them. She took a running leap and swan dived out of the tree, tugging the stake in a different direction. It wrapped around the trunk of an adjacent tree and she swung quickly from the chain, launching herself at her opponent with her legs outstretched, ready to kick him in the stomach.

Matthew rolled sideways. His roll ended in him being crouched on one knee. From this position he got up to turn around, thinking she'd be behind him from that kick by now.

Aveira landed and spun on one foot, the other striking out in a high kick aiming right for his head.

He raised his gun arm to try to block the kick with his forearm. The force knocked the gun from his hand and onto the ground. He attempted to grab her leg with the other arm with the intent of using it to force her to the ground.

She let him, but not before making sure the gun was out of reach. She didn't him to pick it up and shoot her, after all.

He pushed her to the ground. Matthew moved himself on top of her, holding each leg down with a knee, and her arms down with his hands. "Who in the hell are you?"

She couldn't help it; Aveira started to giggle. Her giggle soon became a full-fledged laugh. She laughed until tears pricked the corners of her eyes. "Someone who appreciates a good fight. Though really, you're sort of mediocre, aren't you? You didn't notice someone was paying attention to your 'meeting' with that nice gentleman. You didn't even notice I was following you until I threw pointy thing at your head!" She started laughing some more.

He scowled and wanted to hit her, but all of his limbs were occupied. "No one could've followed me without any noise," he stated angrily.

"Hello, my name is no one," she said flatly. "You aren't very bright, are you? I mean, it's taking all your effort just to hold me, a woman, down. And a blind woman at that. Tut tut."

"Blind, eh?"
"Sight isn't a gauge of strength. For all I know you could be incredibly strong and me holding you down this way isn't enough. Also, how much effort I exert to hold you down isn't an accurate measure of my intelligence." The thought occurred to Matthew that he could probably have his way with this girl. He found that an odd thought to have and so he dismissed it. His mind instead moved to how to get out of this situation. He'd have to kill her, most likely. But his gun was out of reach and he couldn't move his hands from her even if it weren't, so how would he do that? Moving in any way would most certainly result in her making some sort of move.

As if she sensed his predicament, she commented, "You'll find it very hard to kill me. The only reason you're still on top of me is because I allow it." Her voice was calm and passive. This was the voice of a woman who had complete confidence in her abilities. That, or she was very good at bluffing. She quickly proved it was the former when she rolled beneath him, breaking his hold long enough to spin 180 degrees and face him. He could now clearly see her blindfold.

He scowled again, displeased by her ability to move. "If it's so easy to move, why not throw me off? Also, if you're blind, how would you have seen my meeting?"
He glanced around to make sure no one was coming. They were alone. It was getting close to closing time for the park.

"I'm letting you stay above me because it gives me the upper hand," she told him honestly. "And just because I'm blind doesn't mean I can't see. In fact, I can see better now than I ever could before." Her smile turned into a look of concentration as she focused her mind's eye on his face. She could sense his features, but was unable to get a better idea of his looks. "Unfortunately, the subtle differences allude me. I suppose that's good for you. You won't have to worry that I'll report you to the authorities. If I can't describe you, it's pretty much pointless, isn't it?"

She stretched and squirmed, slightly uncomfortable. "I think there's a small rock beneath me. Would you mind making your move quickly? It's getting rather unpleasant," she remarked in a bored voice.

"You know my voice. And how would that give you the upper hand?" Despite what he said, Matthew moved off of her and into a crouching position next to her.

Aveira instantly rolled to the side, grabbed the gun, and pointed it at him, making sure to keep it out of his immediate reach. "Like this," she said simply. She grinned briefly before quickly taking the bullets out of the weapon. "If they needed me to identify you by your voice, you'd already be captured." She threw the gun back to him. If he tried to reload, she'd notice and attack again.

He holstered it. "Who in the hell are you?" was all he could think to say.

She shrugged. "I call myself Aveira. You looked interesting, so I followed you." She smiled innocently and walked over to the tree that her stakes were still wrapped around.

"That simple, is it? I looked interesting so you followed me? Do you make a habit of following people like me?" He didn't like the idea of it having been so easy to follow him.

"Of course," she told him as she unwrapped her weapon from the trunk. "How else do you meet new people?"

"Normal people, or ones like me? Meeting those like me is a bit harder. Normally it's just a hello and other basic introductions. With me... Hmm... Yours may have been one of the few ways." He made sure not to take his eyes off of her.
