Default yet another one that will most likely be ignored

im bored and i thought maybe things would change...

so here's another bit of a story that i've produced...

its not marvelous... and im pretty sure the spelling and grammar are off... again... but hey... i wrote it and i enjoyed doing so...

enjoy

She moved swiftly through the masses of people. At least ten thousand were present. Human, Gelf, Skaarj and a few others she didn’t recognize. She’d braided her hair to keep it out of the way. She wore a baggy black sweater and blue jeans. The sweater concealed a small blade and several throwing weapons. This was her test. Here she would prove that she was an Assassin. Her heart was pounding. In the distance she saw the stage. Four big Skaarj bodyguards stood next to the speaker. His name was Leonard Smalls. A Human. He was an instigator for rebellions on dozens of worlds. And now he would be silenced.

Two Skaarj bodyguards stepped forward and started bashing on their fists on the wooden stand. The thumping carried over the crowd everyone fell silent.

The bodyguards shouted in unison, it was musical and spectacular to behold.

“SAWAIWAAHO!” they shouted as they continued to slam their fists onto the wood.

“SAWAIWAAHO!” they continued as they started to pound their feet on the wooden stage in unison with their fists. A shadow shimmered along the edges of the stage. She blinked her eyes and saw only the Skaarj.

The human on stage stepped up. He spoke into a microphone; his voice was clear and resolute. “One more goddamned day when I know what I want and my want will be considered tonight, declared a sin of the night.”

He slammed his fist and pointed across the crowd.

“Just another day when all that I want will mark me as a Sinner tonight. I’m a sinner tonight, yeah!”

The people in the crowd looked at one another. A few people clapped and joined in with the Skaarj. They started pounding their foot onto the ground. A few others joined in by shouting along with the Skaarj.

“SAWAIWAAHO!”

“Power unrestrained, dead on the mark is what we will deliver tonight. We will deliver the night!”

She came close now. He was sweating under the heavy lights that shone brightly on him. He looked across the crowd fearlessly and point at people as he spoke. He whipped them into a riot.

“Pleasure fused with pain, triumph for our souls, it’ll make you shiver tonight! Yeah!”

He walked closer to the crowd, kneeled down before them and waved his hand upwards to rally them all. More and more people joined in, chanting, shouting and pounding their feet on the ground.

“We are the ones that will open their minds. We’ll leave the weak and the haunted behind!” Leonard chanted. The Skaarj joined in. “We are the ones that will open their minds. We’ll leave the weak and the haunted behind!” people in the crowd joined in, before long, everyone was chanting. “We are the ones that will open their minds. We’ll leave the weak and the haunted behind!”

Leonard stepped back and watched over the crowd. They continued chanting. He smirked and nodded at his guards.

“Evil can no longer cover its eyes. If this disturbs you, then walk away! You will remember the night you were struck by desire!” he raised his fist into the air. “Raise ten thousand fists to the air!” the crowd joined and thousands of fists rose into the air.

“Now.” She pulled two small daggers from her sweater and threw them. The hit their marks, two Skaarj guards grabbed for their throats and fell to the ground. She jumped onto the stage, drew her blade and cut down the third. In the corner of her eye she thought she saw a shadow moving. When she turned her head there was nothing. She focused on her mark.

“Smalls!” she shouted across the stage. The crowd fell silent and stared at the young woman who just got on stage. The fourth Skaarj charged at her. She sidestepped and cut him down. The sound of her blade cutting his flesh broke the silence. It growled in pain as it dropped to its knees. She kicked him off the stage.

“I’ve come for you, Smalls!” her words broke the deafening silence.

He smirked and pointed at her. “Do you see? They’ve sent an Assassin to silence me! We shall not be silenced!”

Behind him she saw a shimmer. It was vague and disappeared a moment later. Her eyes must not have gotten used to the atmosphere of this planet yet. It was nothing. She was assured that it was nothing.

She charged at Smalls, determined to silence him before he poisoned the minds of these people with his words any more. She tilted her blade slightly to the perfect angle. He smiled and mouthed something at her. She let the words form. “Gotcha…”

Her eyes widened as she realized it was a trap. He quickly threw a small bag at her. It landed at her feet, exploded and blinded her for a moment. The powder suffocated her. It was overwhelming. She couldn’t breathe. The world started spinning a moment. Her vision turned black and she quickly collapsed.

She couldn’t even remember hitting the ground when she opened her eyes. She was tied up and seated on the stage. Leonard Smalls stood before her.

“Now, Assassin, we shall make an example out of you for anyone who would dare suppress us!” he was joined by seven Skaarj guards. “Tell me your name so we can send the word to your leaders!”

She coughed. Her eyes burned with tears. She didn’t want to die. Not like this in front of a crowd of thousands. Her eyes franticly shot across the stage. Nothing could help her. No one could save her. For a split second she thought she saw a shadow but she knew it was just the clouds overhead moving past.

“Tell me your name, Assassin!” Smalls demanded.

“P-P-Paige.” She stuttered in fear. “My name is Paige.”

“Well then, Paige.” Smalls said as he turned to his crowd. “We shall make an example out of you before the tower of govern! They will see that we are a rebellion! A revolution!”

The biggest of the Skaarj stepped forward. He held up a knife to the crowd. He growled something to his fellows. Then he turned to the crowd. “SAWAIWAAHO!” he shouted. His voice sounded like a snarling wild animal. “Revolution! The armed response of an entire Nation! I shall gut this Assassin for you all! Take up arms against the Govern!”

He turned to Paige, passionate fury shone in his bright yellow eyes. “I will enjoy this.” He snarled.

His fist rose into the air. The dagger clutched firmly between his green scaled fingers. His long black nails sleekly following the curve of his hand and wrist. Paige looked on with tears in her eyes. This was it. She’d be just another nameless casualty of war. A cloud passed overhead.

The Skaarj’ eyes widened. He let out a surprised gurgle as blood spat out of his chest. A long white blade suddenly seemed to materialize from thin air. He dropped the knife and turned his head. Behind him a figure suddenly appeared. The Skaarj dropped to his knees and fell to the ground at Paige’s feet. Dead.

The others turned to the figure. He spun around and cut the two closest clean in half. The remaining four growled in fury, extended their wrist blades and charged at him. He parried the first, cut through the second, sidestepped around the third and thrust his blade along his side backwards and caught his fourth attacker in the chest. He quickly pulled back his sword and glanced over the stage. Two Skaarj in front of him and the leader, Smalls, six meters to his left at the center stage.

The first Skaarj charged at him. He spun around, cut him down and in a single fluent motion drew a dagger from his chest armor and flung it straight into the other Skaarj’ chest. They both hit the ground at the same time. He turned to Smalls.
“No… don’t kill me! Please!” Smalls begged as the unknown stepped towards him slowly.

Smalls threw a bag of exploding powder at him. He kicked it away in midair and continued towards Smalls.

Smalls pulled a sword from his belt at charged at him. He caught the blade with his, twisted it and forced it down into the wooden stage floor. Smalls toppled over and fell besides his sword. The unknown attacker put his plated boot down on Smalls’ back and buried his sword beside it. Smalls screamed in pain for a moment, coughed up blood and fell silent.

The attacker quickly pulled his blade out, made a cutting motion in the air but stopped halfway. The blood flew off and stained the stage. He then quickly put it in on his back and made his way to Paige. She’d witnessed everything. He untied her and pulled her up. He glanced at the crowd. They stared in disbelief.

Paige quickly ran off the stage while the crowd was still stunned by what had happened.

The man, his armor pure white and his face hidden behind a full plate helm, walked to the center of the stage, took the microphone and spoke to the crowd.

“This rebellion is over. Go home or share Smalls’ fate.”

He dropped the microphone and vanished off the stage.

I've only quickly read it - I'm "getting ready for college"... - and it seems really good. ;D I like it, even though it's not the normal thing I read.

Aha, I love the fact you used the name Paige, it just reminded me of my friend and yeah... this isn't actually going anyway.

What's a Skaarj btw? o.O
