A Lady’s Jewelry

How could anyone grow tired of London? Tonight’s symphony was an epic event, attended by diplomats and royalty. The mission was simple, kill Governor Tuck … quietly.

Security was tight and Solanj carried no visible weapon, no metal, not even her garrote. Her skin-tight, backless gown insured that few people would be looking at her face, and no one questioned a lady’s jewelry.

During a round of particularly thunderous applause, Solanj loaded the hollow tube with a poisoned nano-dart from her fabric bracelet and launched the tiny deadly missile. The applause continued as Governor Tuck slumped back into his seat.
