BECAUSE SMILEI wasn't sure what it was, perhaps the slight movement before I turned, the sound the blade made as it sliced through the air, or an impossibly small gut feeling that made me angle my neck to the left and saved me from a quick but painful and pathetic end. The blade implanted itself into the wooden door with a thud after it whizzed passed my ear, aimed at the back of my head. I heard the sharp intake of breath from the unfortunate soul who had sent it after me.Slowly, I turned to the man, fear now sealed in his eyes. He was so sure of himself, so sure he could take me off guard that easily. I let myself a thin smile and took a step towards him."I'm s-sorry" He said cowardly."You should be," I replied, "I was going to leave, walk out that door and you'd be a free man. But it seems that I've changed my mind."Inside I didn't know what I would do to this man. He'd tried to kill me of course, but so had many others. I wondered if I should let it go, but I wasn't feeling very forgiving.
