Words: 563
Rating: PG-13

WARNING CHARACTER DEATH!

I look down at my hands covered in blood. The dark crimson colour in contrast with my pale skin. My eyes go back to the stain on my white shirt. The red stain is spreading. Bigger and bigger it gets like a giant pool in the middle of a street in a rainy night.
I’m beginning to sweat. I don’t know why since it’s cold. Or is it? No, it was a nice hot day. I remember.

“Nate…” I hear from a distance. “Nate…”

I recognize the voice. It’s her. It’s always been her. My savior.

My knees began to hurt from kneeling on the small rocks on the ground, but can’t seem to fall on my side. It’s like I’m stuck there. Like I’m stuck between life and death.

“Hold Nate, we’re coming.” Eliot. He is going to blame himself for this. They all will.

Sophie and I have been out of the game for over a year now, but when Parker had called asking for our help we couldn’t refuse. Actually at first I did.  I didn’t think I had it in me to do one more job. Not this one. Not when I had finally put this life behind me.
But our friends were desperate. Even with the help of Leverage International they couldn’t stop this enemy. Not when it was me that he wanted. Not after he had first gone after Eliot.

First: take down the protector.

Parker and Hardison had to fake Eliot’s death (again?) to make it possible for them to leave the country and meet Sophie and me in London. The assassin had been stalled. At least for a couple days.

Second: take down the computer genius.

The news of Hardison being wanted for terrorism came as soon as we started organizing ourselves and coming up with a plan. Wanted dead or alive. Hardison could take it down. It was deep in the dark web and that’s when the bounty hunters came. Hardison had to hide underground. (Another bat cave)

Third: take down the thief.

It was impossible to take down Parker. She was a thief. She could get escape from anywhere and everywhere. So he went after the next thing. Archie. The poor man never saw it coming. And with his death, they did do the impossible. They had taken down Parker. Her heart, her spirit, her mind.

Fourth: take down the love of my life.

I knew that Sophie was going to be next. He couldn’t have her. Never. That’s when I did the stupidest thing ever. I went to confront him by myself. No plan. No team. Just me and my gun. And since I’m now on my knees bleeding from my chest and stomach, you can imagine how did that go.

But his dead body is lying in front of me. I’m going down, but he went before me. He can’t hurt them anymore. They are safe.

If I had known it was the end, would I have done any different? Probably not.

My back can’t hold me anymore. My upper body falls down and my face in on the dirt. There’s no pain. Only cold

San Lorenzo couldn’t keep Damien Moreau, but he still couldn’t escape me. I smile at the thought.

If both kings go down, is it still checkmate?
