“Hey, guys! Look at this!” I said, as I picked up the newspaper from the concrete where it had been discarded just moments before.
The headline read ALL OF CABINET DIES . ONE MEMBER MISSING . Underneath it in slightly smaller letters, it read COULD THIS SPELL THE END OF SECRETISM ?
I felt my lips twitch upwards involuntarily as I read the second line. Might this actually be the end of what we had been fighting for all of these years? Could all of those sacrificed lives amount to the success of their ultimate goal?
Ezra and Paulie came on either side of my shoulder as all three of us silently scanned the front page article. It mentioned the suspected assassination of the entire cabinet, and the mysterious disappearance of the Premiere. Apperently, the police had no lead on who the killer was yet.
We looked at each other and smiled. This was almost like a dream come true.
Paulie linked arms with me and Ezra as we started to walk down the street, truly laughing and smiling for the first time in years.
