“The woman wearing the trench coat and fedora. It’s her.” Burgundy whispered, watching the woman from across the street.

Her earpiece crackled, “Heading to the train station?”

“That’s her.” She said as she got up and began following the woman through the busy street.

Burgundy continued to follow, feeling nervous, like someone was following her as well. She gritted her teeth, and kept moving, refusing to let the mysterious woman out of her sight again.

“She doesn’t seem to be the type of person who would be labeled as Interpol’s Most Wanted.” Her earpiece sighed.

“This woman wasn’t given the name “Evanescence” for no reason." Burgundy hissed back.

But as Burgundy was looking at the woman cross the street, she tumbled slightly as she was shoved from behind. Her heart raced as she realized what happened. But it was too late as she scanned the street. Evanescence had known she was being followed. And she had vanished from sight in a split second.

“This woman is starting to annoy me.” Burgundy growled.

    I like the world-spanning mystery feel to it. I think Evanescence needs apostrophes or quotation marks instead of commas, but I could be wrong. Fun entry in the challenge, definitely more on the side of real world type stuff.

    I have no idea who Murakami is, unfortunately, so I simply took the ideas that were listed and put them into the first thing I thought of.

    As for the name, I really don’t know. :/

    A mysterious woman who can elude any attempt to track or follow her? Yes please! By her absence, she has made her mark. Nicely done!
