Additional Extras

The following is a sci-fi drabble dedicated to David Wailing and his Auto series

The assassin placed his briefcase on the balcony. From within, he withdrew what appeared to be a child’s telescope. This he placed on the sill. He then removed the state-of-the-art eyewear.

Activating the glasses, he heard a soft purr from the device as the Cyclops XS2L#W© sniper rifle scanned the crowded plaza.

“Input Target,” a voice chirped in his ear.

He focused on the photograph lying beside the briefcase.

“Target acquired.” The device scanned the crowd, passing momentarily over an innocuous plastic duck sitting beside a similar device.

Too late, the assassin regretted declining the additional deluxe camouflage software option.
