The third chapter. It's a big late, and wasn't how I planned it to come out.
I hope you enjoy.
Again, I don't own the Soul Calibur characters, but I own mine.
"I hate this place" she mumbled. The field they were in was covered in sand. Sand grains even flew with the heavy wind, making it sting when it would hit your body. Shin scanned the area, taken noticed to their four strongholds; one of the left, one in the middle, one on the far right and their main stronghold. She then turn her attention towards a sign next to their stronghold. Win: Take over your enemies main stronghold. Lose: Death to a soldier or main stronghold lost.
"So, what's the plan chief?" Aeneas asked staring at Shin. Shin bit her lip before mumbling, "We should split up." Usually, the general wouldn't want the troops to split up, but Shin never listened. Aeneas looked off into the distance and nodded, while Riese spoke.
"You never listen do you?" Shin just shuck her head and smiled. The trio walked towards the fork in the rode and then stopped. Shin groaned.
"Aeneas I want you to take the left stronghold, Riese you take the middle and I'll take the far right." The others nodded and started to their own paths. Aeneas cheered, throwing his lance in the air. Riese called out to Shin.
"I don't care that we're going up against Abelia. I don't want to loss." Shin sighed, but nodded. All of a sudden they heard Abelia troops. Shin looked forward, noticing the troops closing in.
"Are you ready?" she asked with a smiled. Both Aeneas and Riese said "Yes ma'am" in unison. "Then head out!" With that said everyone separated
"Is there anyone one strong enough to take me?" Aeneas yelled cheerfully as he struck another solider down. He has alright taken over an enemy's stronghold, which he marked with a red cloth. The enemies finally stopped coming, so Aeneas was forced to wait until Shin called him. He kicked at the dirt, staring off into space. Riese groaned when she slashed at an enemy. The swordsman got a good hit out her, leaving her clothes ripped. She chuckled when she brought her wave blades around and hit the target. The men collapsed.
"What a pain" she whispered, kicking the body out of the way before entering the newly captured stronghold. Shin groaned. Yet another soldier came at her. This time the girl held a dagger in her hand and bombs at her side. She has long silver hair with a skull mask covering most of her face. Shin ran forward towards the girl. Her enemy slashed at her, hoping to get a hit. Unfortunately, Shin had predicted the attack. She leaped over the girl and swirled around, lashing at her with her kunai. A smirk appeared on the girls face as she dodged Shin's attack.
"Catch" she whispered to Shin, throwing a few bombs at her. Shin gasped when the bombs closed in on her. Boom! A cloud of black smoke hovered around the area. Shin blinked a few times, before her vision was corrected. Luckily, she moved out the way before the bomb could get her. Her clothes were torn. Besides that and a few cuts, she was fine. Shin scratched her head in confusion, wondering where her foe had gone. 'I'll just leave it alone' she thought making her way over to the stronghold. In a matter of minutes the stronghold was claimed. Shin groaned to herself. She knew she was going to hear a mouth full. "Whatever I have to hurry" she muttered running towards the main stronghold.
"Troops fall in line!" Aeneas jerked his head forward when he heard the call.
"Show time" he said. He gripped his lance and charged forward, barley missing the enemy's he knocked out. Riese stepped out of the now red stronghold. Her clothes were still ripped, but she seemed rested. Smiling, Riese ran straight. She looked to her right, noticing Shin closing in on her.
"How did it go?" Shin questioned.
"Smoothly. What about your end?" Riese glared when she noticed Shin's distant expression.
"One got away." Riese rolled her eyes.
"What an idiot." Shin knew she wasn't winning points with Riese, but at the moment she didn't care. She had to worry about passing the test, while hoping her previous enemy ran back to the stronghold.
"Hey, wait up." Shin and Riese turned to see Aeneas running after them. He seemed out of breath. His armor was weighing and slowing him down. Shin looked over at Aeneas and sighed.
"We'll meet you up at the main stronghold Aeneas. See you in a few minutes" Shin said running ahead of Riese. Riese nodded as she picked up her pace. Aeneas sighed.
"Curse you armor" he said to himself.
"Talking to yourself is kind of bad you know?" a soft female voice spoke. Aeneas stopped and looked around. A female walked slowly towards him. It was the same girl from before.
"Your captain isn't the brightest girl huh? She should know leaving an enemy could cost her her troop's lives, or the whole city's." Aeneas held his lance up, pointing it at the girl.
"That is if you get by me first." A small smile appeared on her face.
"Bring it on."
