They Shall Breathe Ashes

They Shall Breathe Ashes, the famous assassin, and her assistant Shelby are crashing a wedding. They is wearing a red carnation; Shelby has long sleeves. The people on the right think Shelby is They’s daughter (those on the left, her date).

“And how do you know Enrico?” says a curious gentleman with glasses and not enough hair.

“I’m going to kill him,” says They, and winks outrageously. The table loves it: a jealous ex!

“Isn’t he vegetarian?” says Shelby, in that lovely contralto voice.

“That’s right.”

“Then why are they serving Caesar salad?”

“It’s salad,” says the gentleman, a little confused.
