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.

25. ch25

After I had enough time I got out of Orin’s arms and started gingerly grabbing my dagger that I dropped to place it back in its holster without cleaning. I started to stare at my house  walking across the lawn to my house. I felt like I was in a trance as I came closer to the house. I set my hand on the door frame and took a deep breath before I went in the place looked the exact same as I left it when I left. My bonnet was on the floor where my feet are planted at the moment but other than that the room was frozen in time. But I feel like I am an intruder  in what is supposed to be my own home. I walked in and immediately looked around felling empty.  I spotted the fireplace and started to think that if I light a fire in there it would feel a lot more homey. I grabbed some wood and lit a flame that slowly grew. I sat down in front of it. Not caring if the dirt gets on my skirt since it is already drenched with my own brother.

I looked at the flames as they danced a beautiful dance in front of me. I wanted to join them in their dance and end this whole thing now but I just let the flames be as I can see Orin sit down right next to me.  I looked at him in welcome and then back to the flames in wonder of what to do now?

“So what is this supposed to be?” Orin asked and I just shrugged my shoulders.  I was still shaken up as I can still almost see the blood drops that were from my brother’s chest that spattered onto mine.

“I have no clue other than I thought it would make it feel better.” I sighed.  Orin nodded his head in what looked to be was that he was understanding what I was saying.  The hearth answered me back in a slight crackle that made me jump and hold my dagger out ready to fight an unseen foe.

“You have got to control your feelings.” Orin hissed. I thought he understood me but I guess not at all.

“I know but this had caused so much and there are still more to happen.” I whispered and I was surprised that my voice had gotten that quiet as he brought me down back into a sitting position on the ground while I felt a few tears of fear that I will lose him as well one day from an attack rushed through me.

“Don’t be afraid.” Orin said and put a hand on my shoulder as I still cried in his shoulder making him extremely wet and soggy. I clenched the back of his shirt knowing that I am losing my own sanity.

“I am. The way I acted was out of rage.” I was ashamed about every word I was saying as I can tell that the darkness was surrounding us as the fire started to glow on both of our faces. I can only see the darkness that had grown around me over the past few hours as the fire popped again and I feed it with some more wood.

“You were. But that is in the past remember the creed.” Orin explained and I felt safe with him as the fire crackled and popped in what seemed to be in agreement with both of us.  I started to think that promise might just be the only thing that would keep me in the world because of everything that I have done.

“I do.” I took out of my bookmark and started to look at it. The red silk looked tattered and been through a lot which we both have over the few days. There was a long pause as we let the fire talked for us while I was still watching it in wonder of what to say or do.

“Well I better go. I rather not be a bother to you.” Orin stated and my heart jumped  that he was leaving so soon but at the same time I understood what he was saying that he needed to go. I started to get up to beg him to stay but I chose otherwise and stayed where I was and tried to hold back the tears that were welting in my eyes.

“You are no bother my friend.” I said as he left slamming the door as if he wanted to leave in haste for something important. I looked around and realized I was all alone in the two story house that was enough for me and someone else.

I felt like there was something surely missing now and I was alone for a little while with my thoughts.  I can hear the crackling of the fire that wanted to do something to the house while I placed more wood on the fire and then look down and spotted my mark. The marking of the darkness and then it hit me to where I knew what it was that I was go and become the creed. That was to protect it at all cost that meant for me to go to find Orin.

I ran up the steps of my house in haste of that I might have just missed Orin as night as around me while I lit a candle to see what I was doing.  I carefully put the candle out when I realized that there was enough light for me to see.

I went to my wardrobe and snatched my assassin uniform and my pen dagger holster. I also dug into my wardrobe for something better than skirts and dresses that I seem to only where.  I found a nice blouse that I could care less that I got dirty.  The yellowed shirt had ruffles along the 

I decided to go into my brother’s room. It felt weird that our house is going to be frozen in time when I close the door for the final time just like my brother’s is right now. His bed was in the center of the room where the end board was to me and his end table was at the head of his bed with the chest just across from the bed.  His room had always been spick and span as I opened the chest and immediately found a pair and slipped them on and shut the chest when something caught my eye when I closed it.

A book was laying on his nightstand. It had always been there so I never paid any attention to it as I started to pick it up and read it. I realized that the cover was  like the book I found in the first place in Mekin’s house. Blue but with a scorched cover since it was possibly of the few items that were found surprisingly untouched.  The marking of the mercenaries was edged in a some sort of yellowish gold with red in the center. There was a curved line on the cover that looked like something similar to a sword but a little more curvy with  a line next to it and something that I could not tell what it was in the center since that, I assumed, the fire started to touch it.

I ignored the symbol thinking whatever Cam and Evil had said so far it was unthinkably fake. I started to read the inside pages and it told me that I was wrong and they were right with pages upon pages of words and numbers a bunch checked, unchecked, or scratched over and over again as well as diary entries that I started to read but stopped in amazement that my family was holding the darkest secrets and I had chosen another path that would have led to abandonment.

Although you might as well already call me a peace of abandonment. Since I have no family now other than my mentor. I surly want him now to hold me and say that it all right and this section of my life is all a fake and I can wake up at any moment.

But just then a paper fell out of the book and I stared at it for a moment thinking that it might be something that can answer the whole thing and was something That would answer everything as I carefully picked up the paper as my mind of spinning of me convicting myself that this can’t be true whatever it said. I can feel the charred paper as was the rest of the book but this one felt like it was supposed to be protected by the book itself as I started to unfold it and started to read:

Dear children,

If you  ever find this that means either you are old enough to get into the family business and  one of the Mercenaries had found you  or that I have passed and you have found the book. But if I can say a few words of warning don’t go with them.  If you had read the book carefully you would learn that being what I was isn’t what it is cracked up to be. I betrayed them to protect my two treasures and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.

But all and all be yourself and enjoy life and don’t fallow in my footsteps because I had been regretting the decision that I have made other than having you two.  I have lived mine I really would like you two to enjoy yours.

Please heave my warning and enjoy life,


I sat down on my bed stunned at what my father had written and I knew that I had failed him by going to the creed but that isn’t what angered me the most. The part was that everyone has kept this secrete from me this long. I started to get angrier and angrier with every entry I read till I had enough and started to tare each peace to shreds.  I franticly could rear each rip of the pages that I had in my hands as I destroyed the life that I once knew and want more destruction as I scorned each section of the book with my own thoughts of it.

As soon as I was done I saw the small pieces that I ripped to shreds. I felt better that I had just destroyed the book but it didn’t change a thing that what I have done I can’t change. As I got dressed in my own room I felt bad hat I was going to leave a mess of my brother’s room while I slip in what I got with my assassin uniform. I carefully put my pen dagger in the holster as I returned to what was Camren’s room.

All I saw when I returned was a child’s work of making a mess but I swallowed my pride as I picked up each peace thinking that I am a disgrace for doing what I have done.  I knew that if I was possibly going to feel better but doubt was in my mind as I could smell something that was going on downstairs bit I thought it was just the smell from the fireplace but as I was going to go down the steps and got onto he landing I found something much worse.
