“It will take at least a month, possibly two, for the trucks to reach your
location. Until then, I expect you to avoid attention. Kill quietly. We must
scare them before we strike. More mayhem is more control.”
Wolf’s voice came out of nowhere, startling her and forcing her to stop in her
Her master was following her to the plane; probably making sure she wouldn’t
