Demitri carried the small package across the exhibit floor, his hiking boots making no sound on the polished floor. The silver cell phone he held in his gloved hand, when activated, would forever make him a martyr.

The corporate information booth was located just inside the front door. Its presence there assure that everyone would have to pass by it first.  He was attired as a delivery person so as not to arouse any suspicion.

“A delivery from the people of Prince William Sound,” he announced to the startled recruiter.

Stepping away from the booth he started to dial.




  1. I had to Google the Prince William Sound name and now I understand. Revenge served cold but served nonetheless. Was there a Dimitri living there at the time?
    Good story (and maybe prescient?).


  2. An effective, but difficult to read in light of current events where this sort of thing is the new norm, of revenge. I liked the character’s name. It brought to mind the old 60’s type of spy shows like Man From U.N.C.L.E., etc.
