Alice is your typical Assassin; train all day, everyday, until she has perfected her trade. She believes she is as normal as she can get, but on her sixteenth birthday (sorry I know, total cliché) her life changes forever. Alice learns that there is more to her Order than meets the eye, and she's about to dive head first into it. Hope you enjoy!


17. Chapter 16

*Alice's POV*
They dragged me into a great room by the chain around my neck. There at the head of the great room stood on of the people I vowed to kill; Fallon. I stopped in my tracks, head and tail up in pride. He walked down to me. I growled at him baring my teeth as he walked around me, examining my every feature. I felt violated to when his hand can down to pet me, I bit him. He jumped back and cursed. Then he said to the people "Let it go, I want to test something".
     They did as they were told, which I found funny because they were much older than him. Then Fallon bent down to my level, still cautious I would bite him again. I slowly walked around him then around the great room, trying to find a way to escape. I found a window that I could possible climb through, if I was in human form. I then turned back to Fallon, walked up to him and stopped and stood proudly and growled. He cringed then looked back to me. I stood about a head taller then him when he was kneeling, but then he stood up, and now he was about 2feet taller than I was. His and reached down and I growled, he hesitated the placed his hand on my head and pet me. I just stood frozen to the spot. His hand slid down to the collar around my neck and he took it off. I looked up at him. "Now" he said grinning "Isn't that better, Cheshire?"
     My eyes full of fear as I backed away from him quickly, only back into the big oak doors. He walked slowly towards me and stopped a few feet away. I finally calmed myself down, steadying my breathing. "Come now, reveal yourself to everyone. Be a man!" I shook my head. "No? Why not?" I shifted forms and keeping my head down said "I can't be a man... because I'm a woman. Hello Fallon" I pulled back my hood, and grinning to the surprised gasps coming from the newly formed audience in the room. "What am I not good enough for you?" I said laughing. I started to walk around the room with my hands behind my back, eyeing the window where I hoped to make my escape. Then I saw Collin in the crowd. Shit, I thought but kept walking. "God, this is not how I expected to show my identity to you people, I usually would have to kill you now!" I said laughing a bit.
     "I'm a little offended about the whole Cheshire Cat thing, considering I'm a dog, wolf to be more precise. Now, why am I here?" I said slowly. "I wanted to ask you some questions, like who are you and why are you killing all our troops?" Fallon asked, his voice shaking slightly. I laughed hysterically "Seriously? Why am I killing your troops? WOW! You really ARE stupid! If you haven't already noticed my uniform and my style of saluter, I am a Unified, born and raised. You and your cruel plan for world domination is why I do what I do, continuing my father's work. And I'm doing a pretty damn good job.". All they did was stare at me blankly. I let out an exasperated sigh throwing my head back, then spoke slowly as if they were children "No more Gagers, no more killing, free world!" They still were all frozen to the spot.
     "I don't have time for this" I said quickly. I ran to the other side of the room, ran up the side of the wall, gripping onto the loose bricks until I reached the rafters, I hoisted myself up and began to make my way to the window. When I reached the window I jumped onto the ledge and opened it, feeling the cool air rush past me into the stuffy room. The room was about 2 floors up but right outside the window was a huge tree, this would be easier than I thought. "Nice meeting you all!" I said sarcastically. I was about to jump when someone yelled "Wait! Stop!"
     I turned around to find Fallon below me. "What?" I asked blankly, "What is your name?" "Why you don't remember me Fallon? Because I remember you" I said now sitting on a rafter with my hand on my hip letting my feet dangle, "New York right? How was your little family vacation you had? Oh and did you kill anything while hunting? You know, besides my dad?" I asked sarcastically and my voice full of spite. "Ok, so I lied to you, but can I please have a chance to explain? Have dinner with me, Alice?" I stared at him shocked "Jesus Christ you do have a death wish don't you Gager? Ya, no thanks, I'll stick with a deer tonight." I turned to go out the window but the thing he said next stopped me in my tracks. "He's alive you know..."
