7. Natural Born Killer


     Two days have passed. The contract was due date. Hazaki Kojiro was in the car, he was talking to his second in command Kazuma.

     “Today will mark a new era for the Kojiro family," says Kojiro.

     “But sir allying with the Italian mafia will limit our business zone, not to mention the restrictions they forced on our dealers,” says Kazuma with a worried tone.

     “Don’t worry Kazuma, right now we shall move with the flow. But we will grow, we will get stronger, we will become a big wave ravaging anyone standing before us. That when we will show them who's the boss!” Kjiro replied.

    “Sir we arrived, I will open the door for you,” says Kazuma.

    Kazuma opened the door for Hazaki. While on his way to his meeting, [BANG] [BANG] [BANG], everybody was hearing the sounds of fireworks.

    “Hazaki sensei!” Kazuma yelled.

    Hazaki Kojiro, 63 years old. the head of the Kojiro family died after being shot to death by an unknown individual. Kojiro was heading to meet with the Zanetti family to form an alliance, the place was crawling with bodyguards. Still, nobody noticed the culprit. Even the bullet casings were not found. It was a clean assassination performed by a ghost.

    The next day, after walking Eli to work, I used to sit on a bench at the beach and have a cigarette. This place gave me a peace of mind. Out of the blue, I heard someone calling my name.

    “Logan!” It was "The Baron", he walking towards my way.

    “How did you find me here?” I asked.

    “Information is my weapon remember? Nice place you have here. The view is amazing!” He replied after sitting down beside me.

    "First congrats on succeeding in your task, I must say that was some smooth piece of work. Now, tell me, how did you do it?" He said.

    You too are wondering how did I pull that mission off right? Well, it was somewhat a gamble, I was a bit lucky there too. The meeting was crawling with bodyguards, so it was the most unexpected yet most suitable to strike, why?

    “Strike down where it hurts most, but make sure to surprise the enemy first! You have to imagine yourself as a magician and your target as the audience,” ‘The Doctor’ said once to me.

    That is why I chose to do the job in the most secure place, where no one would expect. How did was I undetected? Now that was a bit tricky yet so simple. I was destined to find a place where I can shoot and vanish without being noticed. The most suitable place was … The garbage can in the alley. Yes, indeed, who would have thought that right? But still why the garbage can? Well there I can wait till the target arrives and when I fire the gun, the shell casings would fall directly into the can.

    Now here is the lucky part, first, the target must be in my vision from the alley, the second part is not having any obstacle in the way. Luckily for me, all the conditions were met. I spent the first day planning this assassination, for the other day I spent it all on the practice range, I was a good sharpshooter, 'The Doctor' always told me that I had a gift when it comes to aiming with guns. That is why I managed to shoot him twice without missing any shot with my 44. auto mag pistol (AMP), it was perfect for the job due to its long range and high damage potential. Then I hide inside the can for almost 4 hours! Waiting for the atmosphere to cool up a bit.

    But what about the sound of the gun firing? That was simple too. Before Kojiro procession arrived, I gave some kids fireworks and told them to light them up when they see an old man coming out of the car. With a couple of bucks to buy ice cream you can buy the obedience of any kid. There it was the perfect assassination with no witnesses or proof.

    “Wow, that was unbelievable. Don't get me wrong I gave you this job because I knew you had potential, but this is a whole new level, your mind function like a professional assassin,” says 'The Baron'.

    “Thank you, however, let me say this and correct me if I am wrong. The reason you gave me, a newbie, such an important contract was because, well if I didn’t succeed, they will say a young boy tried to assassinate the Kojiro head. The Italian mafia will be directly accused due to their habit of sending teenage boys to do their assassinations..." 

    They say teenage kids in their early teens have low remorse and no regrets, that is why they have higher rates of success and they won't be prosecuted like adults.

    "Your goal from this assassination was to cancel the alliance and ignite a war between the Japanese and the Italian mafia. So either way, if I succeeded or not, it will be a win-win on your part,” I finished my theory.

    “Oh kid! it seems you never cease to amaze me, excellent deduction! I can't confirm what you said of course and I won't deny it either. But now, I can officially ask you to join us and be part of our crusade in changing the world!" He replied.

    Changing the world? Do these guys share the same vision as I do? 

    “Before I give you my answer, just who are you guys?” I asked.

    “Usually, we don't announce our name before the member accepts our invitation, but I guess you are an exception. We, my friend, don’t exist yet we are everywhere, everybody knows our name, still, nobody knows us, we dwell in the dark but shine the in light, our vision is fixed on tomorrow yet it has no limit, we are the eyes that sees everything yet we are unseen, we are the beginning and the end, we are… The Illuminati,” He replied.
