But the cread is old an the marking has faded over one hundred years of genarations and now they are fadeing into the shadows forever as one more younger member had stubbled across Arcum's path and will that one person show a generation where red isn't a common color to come home with or will he fade into a suposibly set fate for all of the remanning members?

Arcum opened his eyes to the crack of sunlight in his eyes and gently arose from the ground. He quickly noticed that Winter wasn’t in his bed. Full panic rushed over him since the first thought was that she is dead but Winter couldn't be it just enough for her to settle down. Shiv knows that she is an expert of poison and med tactics and now Winter is Greave's lost sister and the rightful head to the creed. She couldn't have meant to kill her off right? Although she is quite stuck up. He started to race across the place without a care that he has yet to switch clothing for two days.

He finally found her in the highest point of the hideout where she wedged herself in a tight triangle within the pillars just enough for her. He smiled when he found her as relief spread over him.

 "Nice hiding spot." he said and she just sat there for a bit.

"Thanks." she said as she started to slide down.

 "Don't, I’ll climb up." he said and grasped the holes that were in the rocky wall.

 "hi." he said as he got onto his own small seat on the other side of hers.

"I'm sorry about not protecting you." he said as he looked at her.

"It’s not your fault. It is the way of the mark." she said as she smiled. "We have to take it day by day it is your way and now mine. My sis said something like that once and she said that I have to stay away from this place. But I never knew it was this bad." she said.

"The mark always finds us." he whispered to himself and Winter leaned over and placed her hand on his lap.

 "I'm stronger than I look." she said as she slid off the balcony. She landed gracefully on her toes. "But I don't get it Arcum. Why are we part of this?"

 "It is a long story." Arcum said and Winter looked at him wide eyed. He knew that he would have to tell her but he didn't have the guts to tell her since she was so innocent and Arcum liked that about her.

 "What is the creed?"  Winter asked. Arcum didn't want to talk he looked away but instead of hiding he led her to an old chapel side of the cave.  "This is where it started." Arcum started as he went down the dusty ales.

 "the Creed?" Winter asked as she followed him quietly.

"My life." he said as he turned to her. "The creed is just a way of shams. Like me. I am an assassin but there's more out there."

 "Enemies?" She asked and he just shook his head.

"The world! You can only get so far in till the creed creeps up on you. And then you’re in it too far." he could feel a tear run down his cheek it was too much for him to explain. "I don't want you to have that life."

 "But she has to." a voice rang behind him. He whirled around to see a girl that had Winter by the color and a knife at her throat.

 "Who are you?" Arcum asked and the person just snickered as the scarf hid her face perfectly.

 "Poor Arcum you don't even know your own family? You just do your job and sulk that your own family dumped you here." she said and Arcum grasped his pen-dagger and got ready to fight.

 "Arcum don’t fight!" Winter said

 "Awww, the child doesn't want violence. How sweet." the person chimed as she dug the knife deeper to draw blood but to Arcum's amazement she didn't stir. She just stood there and took it.

 "Let her go!!" Arcum said and she silently stepped with Winter. 

"Poor boy he wants his prize." She said and Winter punched her in the ribs to where the wind escaped the woman’s lungs and snatched her knife and positioned herself defensively.

 "Good job sis I trained you well." the girl said and for the first time Arcum

 Recognized the voice behind the mask and Arcum stood their frozen becouse the person behind the mask is Greave.
