Sergei heard a noise off to his left, it sounded like a rock hitting somewhere in the square. He stepped away from the wall and turned in the direction of the sound. The silent assailant wasted no time quickly doing a double wrap of the piano wire around the Russian’s neck, while putting a knee in the middle of his back and pulling the wooden handles attached to each end of the wire. The knee in the back gave the assassin the extra leverage she needed to easily dispatch her target.
