Evil Twin - Rirrom - P. A. Nolte

1/ A man in a tuxedo is strapped to a metal table in the center of a less-than-sterile operating theater.  In silhouette above him is a menacing figure.

(Figure): You expect me to monologue.  To reveal my plan.

2/ A hand at a console, fingers wrapped around a solid lever just waiting to be pulled.

(Figure): I'd say I'm sorry to disappoint, but I'm not.

3/ Above the captured man on the table, surely a spy of some kind, an elaborate device that couldn't possibly be anything but a sophisticated laser begins to heat up.

(Tuxedo): If you're going to try and kill me, get on with it.  But first...

4/ There is fear in the captured man's eyes now.  Eyes that usually betray nothing.

(Tuxedo): Your name.  I'd like to visit your widow after I escape.

5/ A corner of the figure's lip ticks upwards.

6/ He steps into the light.  The spitting image of the man on the table.

(Figure): Rend.  Jackson Rend.
