Kirai had managed to sneak out of the gaze of her guards for a few seconds as she had planned and that was all that she needed, she snuck into the assassin's guild and looked around huffing at the daughtiness of the area, "So dreary" She moaned before spotting the table where she could hire help, smiling she looked down the list to find Blake Underow, 'mmh a fellow Shinigami, perfect' she thought to herself and left to find the underow manner, knocking on the door she called out, "Blake I have a mission for you from the queen of the Shinigami open these doors, I read that you are in town so open up"

Miss, there is someone at the door for you, claiming to be the Queen of Shinigami.
Blake let out a low moan as the curtains were drawn back on her bed by her maid. It was probably well into the afternoon, but Blake had always been a night person due to her work. The easy hits were done in the wee hours of the night, which meant sleep came to Blake while most people were out and about.
"I swear if this is some prank by the local girls I'll go mental," Blake mumbled as she grudgingly rolled out of bed. She was in nothing but her birthday suit and the maid turned away blushing. Blake gave a soft chuckle as she went to go find a robe to put on. "There's nothing here that you don't have Aubrey," she joked. She found a discard black robe on the floor and quickly put it one, not caring that it was a little short.
She strolled down her stairs, looking at the door that was getting pounded on. However it was, really wanted to get in touch with Blake. She dismissed Aubrey and opened the door herself, still adjusting to the fact that she had been woken up.
"You rang?" Blake asked, rubbing her eyes a bit from sleep.
Kirai didn't waste time standing in the doorstep and pushed her way past Blake, "Yes I did, You should have answered the door sooner, now as for what I am here for its a matter of business I am well aware of your certain 'talents' and there is a particular person I want you to take care of, I will pay whatever expenses you wish and being a queen of one of the most prosperous nations I can shower you in gold if you so desired, Your target is none other than the high queen, got that? How would you go about killing her?"

Blake was most definitely grumpy with her guest, regardless of status. Not only had her guest woken her up, but she pushed right past her and intruded upon her house. Blake shut the door behind her rather loudly. Aubrey made eye contact with her, but Blake just rolled her eyes.
"If you could just fetch tea Aubrey, please."
Her unexpected guest was none other than Queen Kirai, who was now standing in the very center of her foyer now. She was speaking so fast Blake hardly had anytime to catch what she was saying.
"Please slown down." Blake asked. "This is a most irregular way of contacting me. I work within the Assassin's Guild so my outward identity is protected. They are the ones who contact me when they want me to take assignment. "

Aubrey came back into the foyer carrying a tray of tea for both Blake and Kirai. Blake took one of the teacups, offering Aubrey a smile in thanks. How easy it seemed for Royalty to just skip through the proper procedure on whim. Blake worried about her own personal identity now blown. She frowned at the mentioning of Acc name. What was going on here?
'Why is the Queen of one of the most prosperous nations looking for me to do such a task when she could easily order her guards?'

"Well, I'm going to have to turn you down," she said taking a sip of her tea. How in heavens name was she going to keep her personal life separate from her work life with offers like this? The minute she got involved with Acc and now this? The fates were not being kind to her.

Blake sized up the piece in Kirai hands and laughed. "Sorry, Queen, I have a pretty decent life accepting jobs I want" Not to mention her family's fortune. She already had a lavish manor, help, fine goods. She only did the Assassin work for family tradition and for personal kicks. "You're avoiding the question I asked. Why the High Queen?"
"Because of my goals I need her out of the way, However as I am your queen I could order you to do it or else accuse you of treatchery and have you executed instead, think why would a creature that is so childish and avoids society so some think that she is a myth be more important than your own kind?"

Blake let out a small sigh"You may be my Queen, but you honestly can't say you don't know what my last name stands for? So many Underow's have gone through these lands surviving on there own? My family's skills are unmatched, and I'm no exception" Blake explained. Granted she was a Queen, but she was certain in her skills and her connection with Acc. "Treason wouldn't even phase me."
"Maybe you haven't realized yet, but treason now without pardon in the shinigami lands means death, the only way you could avoid it would be to find some safe haven and the only ones that can offer that is the queens," Kirai said bluntly,

Blake couldn't help but laugh. Kirai had no idea how true her words were. If Blake's skills as an Assassin weren't enough to help her, her safety in the tribal lands. "Well then, looks like your offer has no effect on me. I would be more careful with who you drop this sort of news on."
Kirai growled and left the money and a contact card on the table, "You have till monday to contact me, or else you are dead to the shinigami" Kirai stalked out of the room and slammed the door shut as she left

"Consider me dead," Blake said laughing as the door shut in front of her. Aubrey stood there confused, and blake substituted her teacup for the one Kirai ignored. "This better work out Aubrey, or else..."
