She overdressed for the time of day, to stand out in the diverse crowd; all eyes followed her every sensuous move. That was the point. The more attention focused on her looks, the less was seen of her slight of hand with dice or cards.

Croupiers lingered, eyes locked to hers, not following what happened on their table. Pit bosses ogoled her figure, missing the game action just long enough. She always left the casino a winner.

One day, as she moved toward the casino exit, she felt eyes on her. Not unusual, she meant to draw attention; but this time it was different - frightening somehow. Turning, she saw no one but felt the scrutiny still. A hand snagged her arm, pulling her roughly into an empty office. Forced to face the wall, a strong body against hers held her firmly in place.

"You're cleaver at the tables, but I'm on to your game," he growled into her ear. "Consider this a business proposition. I'll be your ~manager~; my cut is 50%. Don't take my deal and I'll turn you over to casino security; they pay ten thousand for turning in a cheater."

She turned as his grip loosened, looked him straight in the eye and, acting on instinct alone, sank her blade to the hilt into his belly. In ending his life, Madeline, high stakes cheat, found her next career - paid assassin. Somehow, it suited her.
