Title: L

WORD COUNT: 150 words

“The team employed the use of Nightshade to get the information they wanted from their captive.”

Strapped to a chair in a windowless room, assassin L recalls the words he read in his mission file.

He is chocked full of it—antropa belladonna.

‘Let science do the bloody work, huh.’ He thinks, flexing his arms to test his restraints – nothing he couldn’t handle. However, his task isn’t to escape—at least not as yet.

The room’s sole door opens and his target walks in with Major Hendrickson.

L keeps his head downwards, his posture loose as Hendrickson checked him.

“Wake up!” Hendrickson grabs a fistful of his snowy white hair, pulling his head upwards. “It’s talking time.”

L opens his eyes slowly and then grins. “Good evening.”

L head-butts Hendrickson, knocking him unconscious before snapping his restraints.

“Wha—” L’s target gasps as L grabs his head.

“Mr. Smith says hello.” The man drops dead. “You’re a hundred years too early to be using nightshade on me.”


Well… I tried…

Thank you for reading,

— N
