6. The Meeting-Chapter I Continued-

     Morning came. When the young assassin awoke to his amazement, he and the girl were lying next to each other. Confusion over came him. He furrowed his brow as the girl stirred in place. As she rolled over to face his direction, he froze in place until he noticed that she was still sleeping. He grabbed his bow and stopped before exiting the shelter giving one last look over his shoulder at the slumbering girl. He took in a deep breath as he left out and pulled his bow over his shoulder. The young man made his way down the now slick hill. As he reached the horses, the girl was in toe.

     “I trust you had a good night sleep. Nice and dry.” He complained as he mounted his steed.

     The girl gave a stare followed by a rolling of the eyes.

     The two quietly set out into the clearing that would lead them to the river that they needed to follow to get them to their destination. The young female pulled her horse in front of her companion’s, as ivy began to consume the clearing. She pushed on until she heard the sound of running water. In hearing it, she knew that in only a few hours they would be entering into her territory.

     “We should stop and let the animals drink.” The assassin called from behind.

     The girl nodded as her horse slowed and she lowered herself off.

     “How much more land do we need to cover before we are to the destination?”

     She shook her head then looked up to the sky, smiling. Holding up three fingers, she moved closer to her horse. She caressed the animal as it took its fill of water. The Pinto nudged her making the girl lose balance and fall into the man. He grabbed her tight by the shoulders then quickly let go.

     “You should be more careful.” He demanded.

     The entire time the girl was too embarrassed to look at him. She only sat down by the stream and wet her face.

     The young man felt bad for snapping at her, but she could have hurt herself and that bothered him. He squatted down next to her and put a hand in the water. She kept her face down looking at his reflection in the water. He pulled his hand from the water and wiped his face with it.

    “Are you okay?” He asked her very quietly.

     She nodded.

     “Good. I did not mean to yell at you.” He apologized.

     Another nod, as she grabbed her left shoulder with her right hand.

     “Did I hurt you?” He asked.

     She shook her head.

     He placed his hand in the water once more, this time cupping it, bringing water to his mouth. The girl watched from the corner of her eye.

     “Connor Kenway,” he spoke as the girl turned her head to face him.

     A small smile in return.

     Connor rose, walked to his stallion, and mounted. The silent girl followed in suit and took the lead once more.

     The river made a very peaceful sound as they continued on their route. Many animals were out drinking as they passed. Some scurried away, but most of the larger ones only stopped to watch until they passed. The birds were singing, bees busily buzzing in and out of flowers that were full abloom. An occasional eagle screeching as it searched for prey. The sun was still only halfway in the sky as the girl noticed the river break into two paths meaning that in less time than she thought, they would be to her village.

     She had been away from home for a long time. It could have been a year and a half easily. She knew what was waiting on her when she returned, the part that she had to play. It was something that she detested, but for the good of her people, she knew that she needed to comply. She had to unite them once more, but in her opinion, this was not the way. She knew of another and she had a plan on how to get that done.

     “We should stop to eat as the horses need to rest.” Connor stated from her side.

     The two set up an area. The girl built a fire as Connor headed toward the river to fish. He came back with three big fish. The girl scrunched her face.

     “Should I have brought you two as well?” He asked.

     He sat down in front of the fire. Put the fish on a stick the girl had cleaned and began to cook. He noticed that the girl seemed to have her mind elsewhere. She was deep in thought, provoking him to think about some things as well. He still did not understand why he was on this babysitting job. This was the most ridiculous duty that he ever had to do. Granted that he knew every assignment was important, but he just could not wrap his mind around where and how taking a girl back home was. He was told nothing more than that he must. This mission in his opinion was better fit for a Novice, not a Master. This girl had not once tried to escape and besides the two soldiers that he killed when they first set out had anyone seemed to be after them. Something about this was not setting right in his gut.

     The girl stared into the fire unaware of anything but her doubts. What would her people think of the man that was bringing her back? How would they receive him? However, the one question that was bothering her most was in how the Mohawk would react to her and her people when they arrived. Would he understand their traditions or would he even respect them. She heard a noise bringing her attention back to her surroundings. She searched the trees and bushes with her eyes and she saw it.

     Connor jumped up, twirling his tomahawk to the ready. He moved in front of the girl to shield her from the oncoming danger. Running from the bushes in front of him was a wolf. The animal was rushing toward them growling and snapping its teeth.

     “Stay behind me, I will not let it hurt you.” He said taking stance.

     The wolf stopped halfway between Connor and the bushes. It growled even louder and now had saliva flying with every snap. Connor prepared for the inevitable. The wolf walked closer then started in a run as Connor lowered himself even closer to the ground. The girl took off in a run between the two.

     “No!” Connor yelled.
