"Nothing But Lies Here"

Karen Hunty walked into the building. She took courage from the feeling of the gun in her hand as she headed towards the room at the end of the hall. One of the men saw her and she shot him before he could react. He dropped and she quickly shot the other one as well. She stopped in front of the door for only a second and reflected on what brought her to this moment.

The Archangel had taken an interest in her when she was seventeen and he and his followers had been after her ever since. Now, seven years later, she had been alerted to a secret meeting of the Timberwolves in this building. She had purchased the gun from a black market dealer the night before and now she was ready.

She crashed through the door and all but one of them were turned towards her with shock. He was typing frantically on his laptop paying no attention to her. One of the other Timberwolves tried to draw a gun and she shot him dead. She shot the rest too and finally she turned the gun on the one with the computer and fired.

She realized she should leave now but her curiosity got the best of her and she went over to see what was on the computer. The man had only written three words. Just three words. 'Let me in.' Karen didn't understand what they meant. She didn't notice the man's hand grab hers until it was too late.
