Nights like these were what Seunghyun looked forward to the most; sneaking into glass buildings, lying on his stomach on a roof and readying his rifle for a mission. Assembling sniper rifles was second nature to him; like a puzzle, his clever hands would slot piece with piece, and in minutes would be the finished product, ready to use. Working with someone new however, was something he wasn’t used to. He didn’t hate it, it was just the fact that he would be responsible for someone else’s life as well as his own. This meant no playing around with the opposition which could end up jeopardising his partner’s life and the mission on a whole. He hummed to himself as he attached the Thermal scope to his all time favourite, Barett .50 cal, his eyes on the road to spot any signs of her.
There was a slight chill to the midnight air, the inky cloudless sky showcasing an array of stars. Adjacent to the roof Seunghyun was on was one of Hydra’s buildings. He pulled his black beanie over his ears, concealing his blue locks and mounted the sniper to the roof ledge. The atmosphere was not tense but relaxed. It was quiet, almost peaceful which was how it usually was. There will always be the calm before the storm. From his peripheral, a flash of light from the road below attracted his attention. Looking through the scope, he laid his eye on a black Bentley a few yards away from his building. She’s here.
He attached the earpiece to his ear and clicked a button. A small smirk appeared on his face as he zoomed in closer to the car.
“It’s nice to see you, doll face.”
It was dark. The night sky was hidden behind big, black clouds. Ready to rain any minute. But there where still little spots between them where you could actually see through, looking straight at the sparkling little stars, bright against the dark background. However despite the late hour, the streets of Seoul where busy as ever. Mostly younger people, laughing, and stumbling over the streets make their way to a Club, Bar or even back home. Bom was headed Downtown. To the high skyscrapers, the buildings looking fancy, with their walls made out of class and security system higher than anywhere else. Her target was not far from here. She could see the tower clearly already. High steel, silver almost completely dark. She glanced at the little clock in the car: only 5 minutes left. Everything was prepared and she was exactly on time. She knew what she had to do. Knew how to get where she wanted to. However, it was not an easy mission. Certainly a dangerous one, with no mistake acceptable. Not even a single tiny one. She would go into the lions cave. Straight into a wasps’ nest.
3 more minutes.
Carelessly she put her hair up into a ponytale, placing a little earpiece into her ear, a payphone in her pocket. She wasn’t afraid of going in there. No, not one bit. There was no need for her to be afraid, but she was cautious. Examine everything and everyone.
She silently turned the motor off and was immediately after greeted by a deep, rough voice, echoing in her ear. “It’s nice to see you, doll face.” She could almost see his smirk in front of her eyes while saying those words. “Huh.” she answered, slowly opening the door and stepping out of the car. For a second she glanced upwards to one of the neighboring buildings while making her way to her target.”Nice to hear you, Eagles Eye. “she answered. “So, you got my back, huh?!”. On this mission, she wasn’t just working alone. It was a joined one, making it on the one hand a little easier, but on the other hand more complicated as well. You have to be a team. work together and somehow get along. You need to be sure that you can trust the other person completely, because it can easily be that your life, if you want it or not, depends on his actions.
What a coincidence that her partner was, as she called him, the great Seunghyun, the dangerous eagle in the night sky, prepared to attack at every second. She didn’t mind working with him. No, she actually was looking forward to it. It’s interesting for her to see how others handle situations, how they work and she actually trusted him as well. Sure, he is not her friend. She wouldn’t tell him anything too personal, but she trusted in his abilities and knew that she could count on him. At least that’s what she told herself all over again, since she heard that they had a mission together.
She continued walking when a different voice stopped her. “Hey…” the Security guard by the Gate called her, making her turn slowly, with an expressionless face. “Yes?” she answered curious, not ‘knowing’ what his problem was. “You..” he started, stopping abruptly, when his computer screens suddenly started to get dizzy, some of them even turning off, while the lights started buzzing. “Seems like you have some problems…” she stated casually, grabbed his collar and slammed his head against the cold desk. With a moan his unconscious body slid to the floor, perfect for her to grab the access key to the building which opened a lot of doors, if necessary. “Thank you…” she whispered as she slid the card in her pocket making her way to the gate and climbing over it without any problems. “Is everything clear?”
Carefully she led her eyes roam over her surrounding area.
