In the meantime, Cassandra Fenetti was awaking refreshed in a soft memory foam mattress. Not wanting to get out of bed, she commanded her Echo system to turn on the television to the morning news. As the picture turned on and as it became brighter and more clear, she saw her own image reflected back at her in the form of a composite sketch. “Ugh! Shit!” she sighed, as she sat straight up in her bad. Rubbing her eyes with her hands, she squinted to see the image again, just to be sure she wasn’t dreaming. Unfortunately for her, it was no dream, her face really was on the morning news. Running her hands through her hair she knew she had to act fast. Sliding out of bed, she stumbled to her closet, where she found her trusty box of wigs, inside she found a dark, but short brunette wig. It was a far cry from her usual look, but nonetheless, she began pinning up her hair, to at least attempt to make the lace front look as natural as possible. As she applied her makeup, she thought to herself, this was happening too soon. She knew how the cops operated, and this wasn’t their style. To share their investigation with the public showed they were desperate or considered her a real threat to society. Maybe this wasn’t the cops? Maybe the Feds were on this already? Otherwise, how could they have ID’ed her so quickly? Despite all of the questions, Cassandra knew she had to act quickly, if she was going to succeed at escaping. Luckily, her only trip out of her safe house would be to the bank but there, they had many security cameras. So she had to look and act as normal as possible.
Blocking out the “what do I do?” voice in her head, she focused on the mission at hand. Cassandra had to keep telling herself that everything was still okay. As she carefully finished putting on her makeup, she said to herself, “This is only a glitch, nothing’s changed,” and she meant it. Her determination was no less shaken nor was her courage diminished. She would get out of this town and not only that, she would return to exact revenge. Whoever was trying to ruin her life, was going to be made an example of. This thought was the only thing that kept her going. As she searched the room for clothes, Cassandra looked around and thanked her neurosis for prepping this safe house. When she decided to go back into this life, she made sure that she did not make the same mistakes that her father made. He was so stuck in the old ways that he never saw the new threats on the horizon. He treated La Cosa Nostra like a religion, while others only saw it as a business opportunity. Cassandra would make this life give her back everything it had stolen but in the meantime, she had a date at her local bank. Giving herself the once over in the mirror, she made sure the wig was straight, the clothes were mute and her appearance didn’t raise any eyebrows. Once she was satisfied with her appearance, Cassandra grabbed her gun, and her favorite purse then headed straight out the door and right into the path of danger.
