The lights from the bungalow seeped through the flora in the surrounding garden and cast strange shadows on the compound walls.
The building occupied half the length of the street, now deserted, as the clock struck ten pm.
A man dressed in a black jumpsuit, with a cap pulled low over his face, leaned against the wall, closely monitoring the happenings inside.
In his carefully chosen spot, he was not at all visible when seen from the bungalow.
Half an hour later, a man of around fifty years of age, came to the porch and sat down to read a book.
A bullet from the silent gun, pierced his book and then his forehead and he slumped forward, dead.
The man in the jumpsuit inconspicuously started moving away and called up his boss from his cellphone.
"The Mr has been killed as requested by the Mrs, boss"
"NO! The Mr had paid for the Mrs to be brought down, you idiot" the boss screamed in fury.
