The Little Man BuzzesMature

They were moving. That makes meeting up with them very difficult indeed. We were in danger, and needed to learn more about these mysterious 'friends' of mine before I could conclude that my life was challenged because of them. I thought it smart to investigate there last known position....

The little man on my wrist led me to two separate locations. The first, an office complex, was completely destroyed when I entered. There was scorch marks on the wall, in one of the private offices there was the remains of an explosion, not large enough to destroy a whole room, but certainly kill anyone inside. No one died from this though. There was a shape on the floor, a scorch mark that silhoutted a man.  Obviously there was a clean up squad after. Wonder if my clean up squad were greeted by my little fiery act.

 

Moments later....

 

The second location, a simply designed apartment, was littered with splashes and droplets of blood. Someone died in here, definitly. The clean up teams could dispose of bodies, weapons and incriminating evidence. But the smell of death could never be erased. And to an assassin, there was a thick hazy fog of death in this room...

 

Seconds after that....

 

The little man buzzed into life on my wrist. "Sir, you have been summoned". I nodded in a moment of awknowledgement. I fell into a cage of plans and thoughts after that as I made my way from the wrecked apartment. A new job... Interesting.

 

A few more moments after that....

 

I found myself in a new room inside the Guild. It was a large hexagon shaped room. With a dome roof. No glass. All the walls and floor was made of a smooth black marble, it was cold and I felt at home. As the darkness toward the back of the room began to subside I could make out three figures. It was the Lord Assassin to the background. His silhoutte was so distinctive. He was tall, broad and dominating. His presence radiated down to where I stood. The others, I could quite make out, but they were kneeling...

"Welcome Rylnod Taonn. I should hope you recognise your friends." They raised there heads slightly at this remark. "Now you too shall kneel." Without hesitating I fell down to my knees. "I have a special job that will be needing the... perculiar skills of this trio."

This could not be good. We just had an attempt on our lives, and now we had a special job. "Come now gentlemen, the information is on your new, joint, ship, The Dark Marauder. Now rise like the pheonix whilst I still allow it....."
