Academy for Assassins

Taylor is a trainee assassin in an Academy run by her big brother, Drake. When Drake goes missing in action, Taylor and her brother's best friend Moss are sent after him.
And then they find out who, and what, they're up against.


1. Chapter 1.



“You really don’t want to mess with me.”

“What you gonna do about it? I could dispose of you like that.” He said clicking his fingers.

I raised my eyebrow “Damn, you’re asking for it now.”

He started to laugh.

He never finished that laugh. I was next to him with my hands around his neck before he even finished his first chuckle. I released him.

“Was that any better?”

“That was so much better. Which makes me ask, why have you been ignoring my tips for the past month and a half? You could have got to this stage weeks ago.”

“Sorry Drake.” I muttered

“It’s ok, get back to your dorm now.”

“See you in the morning.”

“Taylor, it’s three. It’s already morning…”

“I know. I meant proper morning.” I said rolling my eyes

“If you want to be an assassin, this will become ‘proper’ morning.


He sighed “Goodnight, Taylor.”

“Morning, Drake, morning!”

I picked up my kit bag and headed up the spiral staircase off the side of the dojo that leads up to the dorm rooms on the fifth floor. It’s a pretty big building here- there’s two more floors above the dorm floor, but only a few of us know about them- but I guess it has to be, seeing as it’s an Academy. Drake owns the Academy, which is great because he’s my brother so when he stops running it I get to take over and teach all the little hopefuls to be big, scary assassins. I reach the top of the staircase and get to my room, number 23, and unlock the door.

"How did you do?"

"Shouldn't you be asleep?"

"Shouldn't you?"

I shrug and Cat, my roommate, sits up.

"So, did you improve?"

"He said I was better than I had been in months.”

“Do you think he’ll let you go on your first assignment then?”

“My first official assignment and I don’t know. He’s so annoying sometimes.” I said frowning

“Well, he is your brother. He’s obviously going to worry about you.”

“I know, it’s just he’s let you and the others go on assignments for years and I’ve never been on one…”

“Well, not an official assignment, anyway.”

I burst out laughing “I guess there’s some things he can’t protect me from, no matter how hard he tries.”

“Taylor, Kahn wouldn’t be able to stop you from doing something if you really wanted to do it.” She said rolling her eyes “And he’s the greatest assassin of all time!”

“Whatever, Cat. Anyway, we have W.E.A.P in the morning. I’m getting some sleep.”

W.E.A.P or Weapon Education and Practice is mine and Cat’s favourite lesson. Because we get to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks and stuff.

“I’m not finished with you yet!”


“But I have exciting news…”

I sit down on my bed for a few seconds before jumping up

“Damn you, Cat.”

“Muahahaha. Anyway, you’ll never guess who’s coming to join us soon!”



Cat’s twin sister, Cait, is mine and Cat’s best friend.

“You’re kidding?”

“Nope.” She said, smiling smugly

“Yes! I will get Drake to let her come and room with us.”

“I never noticed before… but Drake and Cait rhyme.”

“Because that is totally relevant to the conversation we’re having.”

“Yeah, it is.”

“Cat, you’re so weird…”

“Yeah, you love me anyway.”

“If you insist.”

“I do.”

“You know you made me untired?”

“You know that’s not a word?”


Cat rolled her eyes “Come on. I’m not tired, you’re not tired, let’s go eat!”

“Do you ever stop thinking about food?”

“No.” She thought for a few minutes “Wait, yes.”


“When we get to point people with sharp, pointy things… you should really tell Drake to change the name from W.E.A.P to sharp, pointy lesson.”



“Why am I friends with you?”

“Because I am the bestest and I got Cait to come here!”

“Ok fine,” I stand up “We getting food or what?”
