London, a busy city. Streets filled with cars, buses and people. It wasn't a special day or anything, but it would certainly become one, at least for two certain individuals who were rumored to be staying in the city right now. It had rained early that day, and while the sun was shining as bright as ever at his point, the city was still soaking wet. But the fact that it was broad daylight would just make the following situation even more unusual. A girl was scaling a building with such speed and agility that it would make any parkour runner ashamed. It seemed like the slippery wet bricks were solid ground she could walk upon. Furthermore her hair was most unusual. It was long, easily reaching down to her feet. Warped in it was another girl, slightly bigger with long blond hair. She was tightly embraced by the hair and was seemingly carried by the climbing girl who made use of her hair like a kangaroo of it's pouch. She arrived at the top of the building with one final short jump.
As she stood atop of it she released her friend from the hair cocoon. "That was a fun ride." the blond commented in a cheerful voice, as she removed any hair that was still sticking to her body. As she now stood with her full body revealed it became obvious that she was rather tall and she wore a rather nice blue dress, but what's more there was a giant pair of scissors on her back. If that and the wall climbing wasn't reason enough to ring the alarm bells, the other black haired girl was carrying a long katana with her. Those two were Alicia and Catherine, two Assassins. With that piece of information in mind it wasn't hard to guess that they weren't in London to visit the Queen or do some sightseeing. They were looking for two individuals. They had a rough description, the general location where they could find them and of course, their names.
Hitomi and Hal. Even if the names didn't quiet give it away, those two had caused a lot of trouble in the crime world because of their vigilantism, it was to be expected that they'd become targets of Assassins sooner or later and it seems that their time had finally come. Catherine swayed her eyes from side to side looking over the city. Alicia had her gaze focused as she slowly turned out with a cold and stoic face and spoke to her friend. "Thank you for coming along, after all you weren't even assigned to the mission." though her words suggested kindness and warmth, her voice only reflected her facial expression. Cold and devoid of emotions. Despite that apparently rude behavior Catherine and Alicia were friends, best friends in fact. The blond has gotten used to Alicia's lack of emotions and she was rather accepting of it. "No need to thank me. We're friends after all, right?" she walked next to Alicia with a smile on her face. "You know i'll help and support you, but don't expect me to hurt or kill those two.... you know i don't like stuff like that." she lost her smile for a moment while saying the words but quickly cheered up again as her eyes drifted over the city once more. Catherine was strange like that. While she was an Assassin, she seemed to have a problem with killing "nice people". Though quiet unorthodox it was possible. The Assassins Guild, Sanguine, tolerated it as Catherine was fairly talented, knew how to separate her social life from work and how to blend in, and she was not rebellious in the slightest and had very few wishes and personal requests. That meant that her targets were mostly corrupt businessmen, political leaders, warlords and the like. The limitations she had when it came to picking targets meant that she as of a lower rank than Alicia and wasn't payed as much, but she didn't mind one bit. Shortly put, if there could be anything as a "Friendly Neighborhood Assassin" then Catherine would be it.
"I understand." Alicia replied in the same steel cold voice as she walked over to the edge and configured her head set that allowed communication with HQ.
The mission would begin soon.
