The Spy

"Sitting alone accompanied only by a martini,
he reflected on the small affectation that had marked an otherwise successful career.
He had grown fond of telling people that many years ago, when he was still young, he used to be a spy.
Even now he continued to be amused by the reactions of those with whom he shared this small confidence.

To be charitable, his claim was not entirely false. Upon leaving the university, he actually tried
to start down the path of becoming a spy, an employee of America’s clandestine services."

Certainly conveys an air of mystery with these tones, lighting and the man drinking alone. "V"
