It had been about five days since Stiletto had successfully killed Jacob Beall and "Greg" on Snowfall Island. It had taken a lot of effort and quite a bit of smooth talking, but she had finally managed to get out of Iceberg and return to the mainland via Rose Garden Airport; upon arrival she immediately made a beeline for Hidden Blades headquarters. There she reported the success of the mission and collected her payment before turning around and looking for another job to take. One job in particular caught her eye.
It was a simple mission to thin out the undead population of the cemetery, which had increased in recent months for unknown reasons. Diana felt like taking a simple job after all the hoops she had to jump through to complete the complex hit on Jacob Beall and "Greg", so she took the job. Six hours later she was standing outside Silent Cemetery and preparing to go in the cemetery for what seemed like an easy job killing zombies.
Wearing a navy blue long-sleeved shirt and navy blue cargo pants with black boots, Diana stood outside the gate and was about to enter when she heard rapid footsteps coming from beside her. She spun to face the noise and heard the sound of weapons being readied by over two dozen men in black outfits with face-concealing gas masks. They were arranged in two ranks; the top rank remained standing while the bottom rank was kneeling on one knee. Diana had just enough time to bring out her Suppressed Handgun before the men opened fire on her with suppressed submachine guns.
Diana had been caught out in the open and had no time to seek cover. Her body was riddled with bullets and she jerked about in a macabre dance before dropping to the ground, the Suppressed Handgun falling from her right hand. She dispelled the Suppressed Handgun to keep it from being used against her and lay on the ground bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds to the abdomen, upper body, and left shoulder. Diana could not help but appreciate the propriety of suppressed weapons being used to take her down.
For years she had lived by them. Now she was going to die by them.
A four-man group approached the fallen huntress with their weapons ready, but the blonde mage was too weak to offer resistance of any kind. She could only watch as they approached with the intent to make sure that she was really dead. She helplessly watched them aim their weapons at her head and saw their gloved fingers hover over the trigger, but the approach of a fifth individual delayed Diana's execution.
"We don't need to waste any more ammunition on her. Take her inside the cemetery and let the zombies eat her. They'll dispose of the body for us." A man in all-black wearing a gas mask with red lenses ordered. The four immediately slung their weapons over their shoulders and picked the badly wounded Diana up by her arms and legs as two more masked men held the cemetery gates open. Diana weakly turned her head to the right and saw the rest of the men picking up their shell casings to cover their tracks.
Diana was carried inside the cemetery and thrown onto the path just five meters from the gates. The four men left and closed the gates behind them, leaving the nearly dead huntress trapped in the cemetery with the walking dead. The zombies in the immediate area were quick to notice the meal that had been delivered to them and began shambling towards Diana.
