She brushes her shiny hair, curls it carefully into a fashionable yet businesslike style. She applies her lipstick with care, a splash of bright red that draws the eye. She smooths down the sleeves of her navy blazer.
She might no longer be military but old habits die hard and she enjoys looking professional, capable – and attractive. Who knows when she might need to use her feminine charms to get close to someone either to gain information, or to get physically close enough to take them down.
She takes one last look in the mirror, squares her shoulders, smiles. Perfection.
