Challenging Assignment, by Russell Conover

The autumn leaves were falling, brilliant in their reds, oranges, and yellows. Samantha snuck into the café and completed her assignment. Then she dragged the product back to the office. “Will this do?” she asked, out of breath.

The woman approached. “Move all those leaves out of the way.”

Samantha gasped. “But how? I was sure … ”

The woman frowned. “We are Murderesses, Incorporated, Samantha. You have failed initiation.”
