7. Into darkness
The phone call indicated the operation was way too easy, even Data sounded uncertain if this course of action was real the right one. What is on his mind is Amanda. His daughter. The one he hadn't raised from childhood to adulthood. The parent who did all the raising was her late mother Alexandria Rollins. Alexandria died in 2005 because of a car crash while Jake survived only to feel survivors guilt.
C--C-Creak went the door.
"Back so soon?" Amanda's father said, sitting on the chair facing the TV. "That is a surprise."
Stavo walks in front of the TV holding a gun to his side.
"One less loose end," Stavo said, then presses the trigger.
A bullet lands in Amanda's father's chest. Stavo lowers the gun while Amanda's father lost consciousness. Stavo turns the TV off then goes through the open doorway leaving a bleeding Jake behind. Stavo stops at the entrance to the doorway. Stavo is wearing dark gloves that reach to the edge of his wrists then takes out a phone.
"Target 4783 has been eliminated," Stavo said.
"Good," Went the other voice on the phone. "Go to the other targets. We can't have any strings left behind once this project is completed."
Stavo slides his finger on the phone then puts it away.
"Audios, dead man," Stavo said.
Stavo left the apartment.
