Used to be? How old are you again, kid?” He’d known assassins before, in his own lifetime and via his countless hosts whose lives he’d witnessed and influenced—but nearly none so young as this kid looked, much less younger.

"Fourteen. I’ll be fifteen in a few months." This would be shocking for most people, but it was the norm for his family. After all, he and most of his siblings had been taking on jobs since they was much younger. "But like I said, I’ve quit. Hadn’t taken on an assignment since I was twelve."

"Impressive!" he said with a rare, actually impressed enthusiasm in his voice. For some reason, he didn’t suspect the kid of lying. “When I was twelve I’d only killed a couple times, much less made and retired from a career of it! What made you decide to give it up?”

It’s been brought to my attention that this “giving head” apparently does not involve decapitating a living creature (presumably human), and presenting the skull to one’s relational partner. Fascinating.

"Right now you’re keeping a pet." He harrumphed and turned away. "It didn’t specify obedience, did it?"

"You are free to go; I would be unable to stop you regardless, but if you humor me, I could make it worth your while."

"…How?" Suspicious tone in his voice. Curious, too.

"I don’t keep ‘pets’."

He totally keeps pets.

"I have some questions for you."
