Raising Kane

The Queen has ruled with an iron grip for years. But now, the magic that keeps her alive is running out. She needs more power. And there is one person that can help her. An inventor by the name of Kane. She sends out her most powerful assassins- teenage girls called Devias- to find him. All have failed, and been killed. And now it's Natalia's turn.


16. Chapter 15ish- Footsteps

Footsteps ring out across cobblestones. A voice rebukes them.

“Quiet! You want us to get found out?”

“No, sorry sir.”


Silence for a little longer. Then a boy’s voice.

“Thank you.”

“Don’t thank us yet, boy. We’re not out of the woods.”

The rumble of an opening gate. A soft gasp of relief.

Then one word that brings everything crashing down. “Now.”

There is a sudden blow, and a gasp from one of the members of the party. Then the sound of a body crashing to the ground. The man speaks again.

“You think you know everything there is to know about betrayal, boy? You’ve only just scratched the surface.” An order, directed to others. “Bind him.”

Small sounds. Then another order. “Put him in the cart.”

“Yes sir.”

Another thud. And then, the sound of horse hooves. Soon, the sound of cart wheels joins it, carrying off into the night.

And in the midst of it, soft sobs that no one will hear. The sobs of a boy, imprisoned and trapped, never free, and the sobs of a girl who has lost everything she has ever loved, and cannot go back or forwards.
