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.

27. ch 27

I rode on Jasmin’s back as fast as she would go. I can feel the air fly though my hair as I can hear the pounding of her hooves on the dirt path. A tear escaped my eyes but I decided to ignore the fear that I had planted into myself that Orin wouldn’t be there at all and I had to look for him because he was captured again. And the fact that I almost escaped death again as the smoke and ash was now into m clothing and the rest of me.

I can see the house come to me as I rode on Jasmin through the night while the noise that normally resembles night tries to go over the sound of hooves. I can hear my heart match the speed of we were going in till we were at the front door.

The house looked like it has been left open for whoever wanted to go into it and trash it even more. I started to get scared as the wind blew the door open and I can hear the squeak of the hinges that I didn’t realize the first time since the dark feeling of someone there and the figment of my imagination.  I slowly got off of Jasmin’s back and padded her strong neck on a job well done. I can hear the sounds of Camren’s voice nagging me to stay away from the creed all together but I persevered forward.

I slowly walked up the steps and let the night illuminate the main room inside where I could see the destruction that was left. It gave me chills that lasted while I walked into the room then I noticed the chair and I could still hear the faintness that Orin had become when I found him here.

I started searching for him. “Orin!” I called scouring every room and calling his name out as I went but as I started to go back down the steps that were in the grand entrance room I felt extremely worried for my mentor but then I remembered the weapons room. I slowly went to the hidden room by placing my hand on the wall where I thought were the wall supposed to be. I can feel the paint run through my fingers but when I felt a small brake between the boards that resembled a doorway my mind was glad that it felt solid. It brought me to ease that the solidness meant only Orin could bring the door closed to the perfect standard but then again so can I so the though brought all my calmness aflame but I took a deep breath.

I placed my hands to where it was easy to push it in and then the hard part was pushing it aside to open it to show the stairway that was hidden behind it but I couldn’t see it because of the darkness. I reached for the torch but almost fell down the steps while I felt my heart jump out of my chest while I started to lean forward but caught myself on the side of the doorway.

I took a moment to settle down and then I tried to reach for the torch again in hopes that whoever was down their last didn’t just drop it at the bottom of the steps for me to get but then I feel it. I wrapped my hands around it and hoisted it. I brought it into the stillness and shrugged my shoulders thinking that it was obviously unlit but I could see a few embers that were about to die but I think with a little bit of luck and the skill that I had acquired through the years of lighting the hearth at home so it should be easy enough to light something in this tiny torch.

I thought it would be easy to get a flame lit in the small torch but I had to try again and again getting vary fatigued of trying to light it and finding the matches to light the little thing but eventually I did. I felt proud that I accomplished this far but I quickly reminded myself that I had to find Orin and fast.

I looked down the partly lit staircase thinking that someone might be down there as I started my journey down the steps taking them as more of a double step than one at a time placing both of my feet on one step softly and making sure that I didn’t make the wood squeak in warning. I can hear my heart thump in my chest faster than it had ever been for a while. I can since that I was close to the landing and I was.  I started to turn around but my foot slipped on the sand grains on the wooden surface. I felt myself fall again and this time I dropped the torch. I couldn’t understand why I was this clumsy now but I had to light another flame in the same torch handle and I didn’t want to do it again. Plus I was out of matches which didn’t help me at all. I sighed a horrible sigh thinking that I have to quickly collect the ash that I could see as some of the embers glow while it scorched my hands.

I carefully felt my way around the place but then I rammed by knee into the stone alter and it gives me an idea.  I grabbed my dagger and started to scratch one of the back sections of my dagger that I did not have to keep sharp and ran it against a bit of the alter. The blade squalled in a high pitch like it was refusing to be used. I reared back as I saw sparks and gave myself a massive headache.  The pain pulsated in my head but I tried again with the sparks but this time I put the torch underneath where I am going to scrape my dagger.  I could hear the screech while the sparks lit a small aria and alas a few of them landed onto the embers to where they bounded together to get a small flame and that was enough for me because by the time I stood a had a healthy flame glowing but slowly fading away at the same time so I knew I only had a few moments of lite in here as I figured the rest of the torches were the same.

I went around and lit each torch one by one as I could start seeing the room as I placed the torch inside the other one while the flame jumped from the torch to the other. I smiled as the light got brighter and brighter but I stopped when I got to the weapons wall. I noticed that there was something off like one or more of the weapons were missing and I was hoping it was a sign instead of someone stealing.

I could see a few empty pegs that were in a shape of a sword. I started to wonder if Orin truly been here and I just missed him as I looked at the rest of the weapons were gone as well I wanted to know more as I looked closer I could see the outline of a symbol. I knew I had to light the rest of the torches and did just that going from torch to torch and feeding them the flame.

After I was done and I quickly looked at the wall and then I could see the confirming relief. The curved lines of the vacancy of the weapons that were missing were in the shape of the symbol of the creed! The items that were there matched up formed my marking almost perfect and as I turned to just about to head back on Jasmin to search for my mentor again I saw the exact same marking on the flat surface of the alter.

I felt excited that I might had just missed him since there were embers in the first torch I put out each of the flames one by one by quickly dumping sand and dust on the flames and making sure that they were completely out before rushing up the steps but then I realized one thing that I forgot to look for since Orin was now leaving clues for where he is or nearby the aria of where he is at. I slammed the secrete door back to it spot and made sure it was seamless for anyone else if the person decides to come in.

I started to scurry around for anything that was different but there was nothing that I could see but as I started to give up I looked back at the stairs. I can see that the panting had been changed from the one earlier. The moonlight was glaring right at it while I started up the grand staircase.  Each step was full of hope as I reached to touch the cold golden metal that held the clue in its frame.  I felt hopeful as I went back down and placed the painting in the moonlight to show someone sitting on a hillside underneath a lonely tree. I can see that the white painted stars were bright and shining in front of the person like they were trying their best to remember something. I looked closer and saw that the person was a man with a hood and a few swords with him, one at each hip as he was above a small town that looked familiar while I can almost hear the sound of the creek that was flowing nearby on the other side of the tree.

I realized that I know the spot as I had passed it before as it is one of the routes out of town to go inward to the frontier.  I quickly knew where Orin was at as I felt like I was in a complete rush now. I ran up the steps and carefully placed the painting back on the hook. I jumped down the steps and ran out the door but something made me stop again.

This time it was the moon and stars that decided to come out for me. I started to wonder how did this world so big and full of wonder like death in these parts. I wanted to know if the stars above were people that I had lost like Cam and my parents. I can see them sparkle and twinkle like they were responding to my thoughts and wishes. I liked that the universe is starting to except the fact that I like the path that I had chosen because in my mind I am putting more stars up onto the sky to where there can be many more to come.

I went down the steps slowly as I kept my gaze at the night sky. I patted Jasmin’s back thinking that we had to ride as I mounted her and we did just that as I knew that I am now one with all that I lost but moving on in a new way.
