My entry for this week’s 100 Word Challenge from Julia’a Place. My, it has been a while hasn’t it? This whole “family life” aspect eats up quite a bit of time, which will makes next week’s move across the world even more fun.

Still, I hope you all enjoy and I hope to be back to regular postings. *fingers crossed*

    Really nice description here! I like the inner conflict of your assassin. That little moment at the end has some strong emotion to it, too.

    I always like to see what you’ve got up your sleeves, but take your time. If you feel moved to write, do so, but pressuring yourself is never good.

    Glad to see you enjoyed the read!
