Chapter One: The Mission
You cleanly escaped the scene before suspicious eyes came nosing in. Despite only being assigned the mission half an hour ago, the job was already finished with hours still on the clock. You had wanted to finish it as quick as possible, because Hyunseok and Minhwa Oppa had promised to take you out for ice cream later in the day.
You glanced back at the deranged body before gliding out of the window. “What a prick,” you spat under your breath, not feeling even the slightest bit of guilt or pity for your latest victim. He had deserved it, anyways.
“Hanmi!” a voice called out as soon as you slipped back into headquarters. “I’ve been looking for you!”
“Hyunseok Oppa!” You grinned when you immediately recognized the voice, and spun around to go skipping to the familiar face. “Wae? The Boss sent me out on another mission, but I finished it quickly.”
“He isn’t overworking you, is he? That’s the 29th one this week,” Hyunseok frowned, ruffling your hair with a worried expression. He did a brief glance over to make sure you had no injuries, and just like always were injury free.
“Ani, I’m fine. I’m a bit disappointed, to be honest. The missions he’s been assigning me are too simple,” you shrugged in reply.
“Then maybe this next one will catch your interest,” Minhwa announced as he popped out from behind the two of you
“Another one?” you groaned with a heavy pout formed on your lips. “I wanted to go get ice cream! He just sent me out on one, goddammit, the old geezer.”
“Isn’t he being on harsh on Hanmi?” Hyunseok asked with a raised eyebrow. “She’s had more missions this week then we’ve had in a month.”
“He must think you guys are getting old,” you teased, only to get a slick flick on the forehead courtesy of Hyunseok.
“Due to this girl’s baby face, he’s trying to get her more well known in the community, to prove her skills, I guess,” Minhwa explained.
“But you two have girl faces too!” you pouted, dodging when a fist came flying your way.
“Yah! Haven’t you learned not to hit a girl?!” you exclaimed, quickly ducking behind Hyunseok. “Seokkie Oppa, you’re the only one I can trust to protect me.”
“Yah Hyung! Don’t scare my baby girl,” Hyunseok said wrapping his arms around you from behind.
Hyunseok and Minhwa were people you had met just a couple of years ago, but you already had such a tight bond with the two of them. Seeing as how you were raised to be an assassin ever since you were taken away from your family as a baby, you had grown to be a cold and cruel. At the age of 15, Hyunseok and Minhwa, both 19, were introduced to your sector. By then you were already well acquainted with your title of the “Killing Queen”, and was already the Boss’s favorite little prodigy. Of course, you acted just as cold to them as you did to every other worker, but eventually the two of them broke past your hard shield. Those two guys were the only things you loved most in the entire world.
Minhwa scoffed before heading down the hallway, waving for you guys to follow behind him. “Come on, Boss wants to see us for our new mission. Apparently this is going to be one of the toughest ones yet.”
“Hyunseok Oppa, I’m tired,” you whined childishly, tugging hard on Hyunseok’s sleeve. “Pick me up and carry me there!”
“Aish! You’re such a little brat,” Hyunseok muttered, but he carried you on his back nonetheless.
The two of you trailed into the room behind Minhwa, and you were surprised to see your fellow team mates, BAP, there as well. To be quite honest, you hated every single one of them – with the exception of Daehyun – despite the fact that they were your team mates.
You met eye contact with Zelo as you walked (or more, rode) in, and instantly stuck out your tongue and flicked him off before settling yourself in between Hyunseok and Minhwa.
The metal door immediately shut behind you, and the Boss turned around to face you all, tossing files to each of you. You opened up the file in surprise to see a handsome face staring back at you, and you felt your heart beat stutter. Byun Baekhyun.
It would be a pity that he would be dead within the week.
“Your new mission will be to take down a group of threats that go by the name EXO. The member profiles are in the files held in each of your hands. There are 12 members of this group total, and they’ve been a mission we’ve been saving for the right group of people. It is crucial that we take them down within a month’s time, and no more,” the Boss explained. “These targets are all extremely dangerous, and they are nothing like the ones you’ve had lately. They’re all… special.”
“Special how?” Jongup asked with a raised eyebrow.
“They’ve all been equipped with an inhumane power,” the Boss replied.
“Woah, so they’re like super heroes?!” you exclaimed with excitement, nearly jumping out of your seat.
BAP sniggered at your childishness. “That’s what you get when you let a girl in,” Himchan laughed.
“Do you have a problem? Everyone in this room knows that Hanmi could take you down in a heartbeat,” Minhwa snarled in response.
“Oppa don’t mind him,” you said, placing a hand over his in order to calm him down. “He’s always going to be an idiot.”
Himchan growled and stood up in his seat, but he was immediately reprimanded by the Boss.
“If you guys are going to get into a fight, do it outside of my office in a few minutes,” the Boss growled.
Himchan sat back down with a tug from Zelo, but shot a strong glare over at Minhwa.
“Study your files well. I want you to know each and every one of them like they’re your best friend,” the Boss continued. “Learn them all by tomorrow night, because that’s the first time we’ll be acting. We’ve had this mission for quite some time, so don’t screw it up or we’ll kill you off in a heart beat. Got it?”
You nodded nonchalantly before making your way to the door, not forgetting to give an extra hard shove past Youngjae before exiting.
“Oppas, can we go get ice cream now? Please? Pretty please?” you whined, tugging on the sleeves of both of them.
“You’re such a child,” Minhwa sighed. “How is it that you’re a cold blooded assassin?”
“Experience~” you grinned simply in reply. “Come on! We can learn our new mission over the delicious icy treat in our mouths.”
The elder guys gave into your whines, and the three of you departed to an ice cream parlor that you had grown fond of. 10 minutes later and you guys were seated in a booth, about to open up the file to learn your soon to be victims.
You took a deep breath as you gazed at the handsome face looking back at you once again.
“Byun Baekhyun,” you whispered under your breath as a smile appeared on your face. “It’s almost a pity.”
“Don’t get attached to him, Hanmi,” Hyunseok warned when he caught sight of your awestruck face.
“How could I? It’s just a picture,” you laughed in reply as you turned back to read the information under his name. Byun Baekhyun. Age 19. Possesses the ability to control and create solar light. “He wasn’t kidding when he said they were equipped with special abilities, huh?”
“It’s a bit ridiculous if you ask me,” Minhwa shrugged. “Look at this kid, the ability to travel to space.”
You glanced over at the picture he was holding up, and once again felt your heart beat stutter at the sight. Kim Jongin. You fumbled through the other photos in the folder to find each member just as handsome as the next.
“What the hell is this? A harem?” you scoffed, after landing on the last of the 12.
“Hanmi, Oppa is better looking than these guys, right?” Hyunseok pouted.
“Of course, Oppa is number one!” you grinned, holding a thumbs up. “Tied with Minhwa Oppa.”
“Come on, we all know that you love me a lot more than this bully,” Hyunseok scoffed as he crossed his arms.
His words went unheard, however, because your sight had already landed on a new figure that walked in.
“O-Oppa,” you choked, tugging his sleeves as you continued to stare at the figure just a few feet away from you.
“What is it?” Minhwa sighed with annoyance as he followed your gaze.
No reactions to display.
