Word Fix At 56: Week #20

~ HIDDEN ~


In the 31st century, it was easy to hide. Human augmentation was common. Her appearance had changed once again. She had chosen blue skin pigments and ornamental wings.  She had even changed her name to Butterfly Faery. No one would suspect her real identity. She glanced at the stiletto knife in her hand, eyes narrowing. Assassin. 

NB:  "Word Fix At 56" is a weekly challenge co-hosted by Anders and Linda. A photo/picture is posted and those who enter have to write an original piece to go with it in exactly 56 words. It can be a poem, verse, story. This was my first attempt.
