His steps quickened, hands slipping into his jacket pockets to ward off the chill that slipped down his spine. Alabama’s weather was colder than California in the fall—at least his project would keep inside.
He missed a step and stumbled before managing to regain his footing. Warren spun, only to have his eyes widened at the sight of an attractive brunette standing behind him. “C-can I help you?”
Her lips lifted at the corners and she stepped forward, into the cast of a nearby streetlight. It outlined her curved figure wrapped in flannel and jeans as she asked, “Are you Warren Mears?”
Her pleasant smile faded. “Thank you.”
His brows pulled together, head cocking before he stumbled back when she raised a gun. “Wait! What—”
His words were cut short as the bullet impacted, lifting him slightly before he collapsed to the pavement. He blinked, felt the blood as it warmed his side, as it saturated his sweater and his attacker moved to stand over him. Her brown eyes burned a brilliant blue before she lifted her arm, took aim at the center of his face and then Warren Mears knew nothing more. The End.
