Ice Princess

Chapter 3: Monster

I slunk down the alleys and slipped easily into the mansion. I quickly glanced at a painting. It read 'Fujimoto Juun'. I nodded. Good. Right place.

Getting past the guards was fairly easy; none noticed my presence. I easily concealed my outstanding aura.

I noticed my mistake, however, as I entered my target's room. As soon as I entered, a revolver was cocked and put against my head. I expertly plunged my fingers into a pressure point on his arm and wrist as he froze. As soon as he did, I aimed a roundhouse kick onto his shoulder, but not before he dislodged the knot on my eyepatch. I gasped as the thin material hit the floor, revealing my icy blue eye.

The temperature of the room was quickly dropping. He spasmed as he felt his insides freeze and his body shut down and he gazed at her emotionless mask with fear. "M-monster...." he gasped as his heart stopped, glancing at both her icy blue eyes that looked like a dragon's.
