As her involvement in the war deepened, Ms. Wake was trained by the British to kill with her bare hands (she delivered a fatal karate chop to a sentry at an arms factory), parachute into enemy-held territory and work a machine gun.
A fatal karate chop?! I didn't know those existed outside of Star Trek! Also - I did not know that was a skill I could learn. Do you think I could pop in at the dojo and ask my sensei if he teaches that in his Karate for Everyone class? Because even though I would never use it, I would love to be able to say, "Yeah, my karate chop is pretty lethal," and mean it.
And for another thing, what do you think she was wearing when she killed that sentry? I'm thinking a leather trench. With her collar popped. And cherry red lipstick. And a beret. And a silk scarf she was given by a duke who was madly in love with her. She sounds like the type of gal who would not overlook these details.
In other news - did you see the cute sidebar title thingies? Angela strikes again. Much like the lady spy, I like to imagine her also wearing a leather trench, beret, scarf and red lippy while issuing a fatal karate chop of style and glam to this blog.
