You saw her on a job. She was smart, cunning, and beautiful. You arranged to meet her again. Your teachers told you that attachments are a deadly distraction. Your ego told you that those old men didn’t take your talent into account. You were wrong. The attachment was a weakness. You were distracted and it led to a terrible choice. Now, you are in the underworld of the border lands. You are a paid killer for petty barons and minor warlords.
This new job could be your ticket back to respectability. Back to the capital and a respected place among the masters.
