The Creed A Generations Before

{I walk through the valley and the shadow of death but fear nothing in the darkness. That is what I will go through every day in this black world of mine of the hunt. I hunt for neither side of what a person proclaims but for the one that gets me farther on in life and teach the generations after me to fallow The Creed and obey its laws and regulations like I have done. I will learn through the past generations mistakes and kill swiftly and cleanly for my marking will be pasted on forever. ]
This is the promise i had made to my new family but i want to please them forever. I know it will be tough since my brother dosn't think i should do it but it is my own bloodline i have sealed the fate of, not his. I want to take the forever pledge, I know it won't be easy espesily in the life of the creed.

15. ch 15

I got up on Jasmin and just started riding and letting her hooves pound on the path. I wasn’t sure where I was going or what I was doing but I just ran and I couldn’t stop. The ride was itself, lonely and that I was doing this myself. I needed help because I was out of leads and, out of time. I rode and rode into the night and wanted to stop at the one place that I knew might except me, Mekin.
I looked around and I can see a light that was coming off of the top floor window when I got there. I wondered why Mekin was still awake this early in the morning. I looked around and saw that there was a little tree by his house.
I halted Jasmine and tied her to the tree and started to climb it. The twigs were thin but I managed to climb up them easily and across quickly knowing that I am light weight but I never realized that I was that light while I managed to get to the roof. I started to creep around slowly and consciously.
What I saw was Mekin writing in something that I never saw before, a book with a marking that was special to him as he carefully turned the page with gloves with the same emblem. I wondered what that was as I pulled my sleeve down to hide my marking for some resin while I started to become nervous.
I slid down knowing that I have to intrigue on that book. I gently rasped on the front door and Mekin answered promptly. "Silva! It has been a long while since I have seen you! I must send word that you are..." He said with excitement.
"No need. I rather not have my brother notified. We had an argument and I need a place to stay while he is cooling down.” I lied and he nodded since this wouldn’t be the first time that I had to run to Mekin’s house to cool off for the night.

“Very well.  How about you come on in Silva?”  Mikin showed me inside. His house was much like my own but it was much like mine  other than he was a rich land owner with a bunch of farm space back a few years ago until he started to sell his land to the town for expansion minus the fact that he was hiding something else.

“Thank you.” I walked in and then my mind went completely blank on what to say next as I needed to see what that book was about. If nothing else at least figure out what those gloves were about. “Umm,” I pulled down my sleeve to not show my secrete to him and double checked that my pen dagger was hidden deep in my jacket.

“What is it?” Mekin asked which only made me even more nervous as I started to rambled the first thing that came into my mind.

“It’s a nice evening we are having.” I said and I noticed that I managed to say the wrong thing that made Mekin a bit annoyed.

“Yes, it is. But is there something different that is in your life.”

“Well, I was wondering what you were reading?” I said.

“I am surprised that you are interested.” Mekin said as he got up from the fire. “Which one were you thinking of?”

“Well it is a special, something mystical and personal.” I said and he lifted an eyebrow.

“I think I know what you are talking about.” Mekin said and I kept on describing the book.

“Something that I can be surprised with, the one with a special symbol on it.” I started to ramble.

“Yes, Why are you asking?”  Mekin said slowly starting to get what I had been saying.

“No reason! Just curious!” I cried trying to cover that I had said too much.

“You are asking all of these questions and I am becoming suspicious.” Mekin said as he looked at my outfit.

“Umm,” I shuttered, completely out of options and I had covered my hand over my marking not making it suspicious that I am hiding something.

Mekin pushed me into the wall and wrestled me to the wall to pull my sleeve down. “Creed!” He called.

“I was wondering what was the symbol was that was. I was FORCED!” I screamed thinking that it was going to be a way out.

“I know that this wasn’t forced. I know a forced marking because of the mercenaries.” He said and started to swing a nearby sword since he stuck the stoke back into its holster. The hiss of each sword hitting each other. The dark swirling my once closest family member divided us to where it was now enemies that hate each other because of the long bloodline.

“You! You were the one that Cam had been suspicious of me!” I yelled as we started to dance up the steps.

More than that, I had been part of your family that you know of.” He laughed as he swung his sword at me. I was stunned that he was admitting that both were with the mercenaries the number one enemy of The Creed. “I know what I was thinking what I must do!”  Mekin warned and I was thinking that he wasn’t the man I grew up with and switched him with another kill that I have to do.

“That is what I have to do as well.” I said as I managed to jump over the rail but Mekin started to corner me once again. The swords did not meet this time while I managed to miss with my pen dagger but he did not with his sword. Leaving a huge slash on my side as I can see the blood drip but it didn’t affect me at all. But as he slashed me he left himself open.

I dug my pen dagger into his heart, feeling the blood gush out and hearing the silent drip, drip on the floor. Soon the air for the final time escaped  from his lungs  slowly but it was an immediate response.

“Why , Why did you choose The Creed?” He asked while choking on his own words. I hovered over him and I held my own side.

“Because I am The Creed.” I said sternly as he slipped into the unforgiven realm that will be meant for both of us one day but for right now it is just for him. I stopped for a moment and watched before I went to look for that book his face looked saddened because of the one person that he might have called a daughter.

After a while, I reminded myself that I had one more item to grab but I didn’t know how much time that I had while my mind started to cloud a bit. I started to look around and found a sack that might have been used for seeds. I thought that it would be perfect as I slung it over my shoulder as quickly as I could without knowing that quicker met more blood being spilled from me.

I ran up the stars, feeling myself fade but the pain was not present by the adrenaline that flowed in my veins. Although I should know by now that I was fading and having to run around would spell death for me.

By the time got to the top and a little bit of exploration I couldn’t see since I was practically drained of blood by now and that was starting to feel my head get lighter as I walked. I had never had been upstairs before so I had to search every room which was making my life shorter.

“I know it is around here somewhere. I am at the front of the house.” I breathed and wondered how much time I had left. I started to bang into stuff while I walked since I started to stumble with my walk. I grabbed one table for support but I managed to lose my placement on the table and I fell to the floor.

“Oomph.” I breathed as I laid there for only a second but then I convinced myself to get going and I got up. I finally found the library and went in but the colors started to stir as now they want for rest was starting to cover me.

I grabbed the bookshelf since I knew my vision was now impaired to now useless. I still had most of the layout fresh in my mind while I used the sense of touch to help me find the shelves and anything else.

I noticed that by one of the windows, that was by one of the walls, was a chair that I was looking for. The only true resin that I found the chair was that I ran into it.

By trying my best of stabling myself on the chair and sat down in it while I felt around and found the book on the table like I hoped it would be. I grabbed the book and rubbed the cover recognizing the marking that I saw. “Perfect,” I whispered and stuffed into my bag but I didn’t grab the gloves since this was all I needed. I figured that the small fie that Mekin tended to was out I started to leave.

I stopped at the top of the stairwell , the measly stairwell that I would possibly jump over the rail if I was in better condition than what I am right now. The downhill climb looked like I would fall over at any moment or a steep mountain other than the fact that I was going down the steps.  I could picture on my mind’s eye I could see myself fade and my soul free.

I convinced myself to get going. I managed to get down a few of the stairs before tripping over myself and toppling down  going faster and faster down the steps but then after words I found another stool to have something fall on top of me.

“My side hurts so much now” I thought as I just lied there and cried. I cried with all my might as tears stained my cheeks. My own blood was staining an old friend’s, which I respected, house and my own hands that I was putting on the side. The Creed taking me away from the life that I knew.

Then I see it, the door. The door that would lead me out of this death and hopefully freedom of what I am ready to do. “If only I can get to Jasmin!” I thought as I, once again, got up and made my way to it. I crawled my way to the door as every movement was with pain.

The stabs were invisible as now I am moving on instincts instead of nerves moving my body and made it to the outside porch. The cool wind felt lovely on my face while the fall cold was being like an ice pact that was not helping the pain that I was having. It only makes it worse but as well as giving me pain it also gave a bit of a new life inside me to go on. I slowly and cautiously down the three steps of Mekin’s porch.

Then I moved myself onto the ground to look at the sky. I managed to realize that I am too week to ride Jasmin back to the Elder’s house. The sky was black without stars that I wished that I could see as I could feel myself all of a sudden feel nothing as I was starting to think that it wasn’t the sky being starless. That or it could be my body going lifeless.
