Redemption of a Knight
I wasn't going to update today, but I was like "Hm, I think I am going to update because I have nothing else to do." so I am updating. Read and Review.
"I need your help."
I was surprised. The look on his ashen face was a bit troubling. I hadn't noticed how tired he was earlier at the party. The Mayor looked awful. I hadn't noticed this earlier but he looked troubled. I had last seen him two weeks ago and he had not looked this bad.
It took me a minute before I finally answered him, "Would you like to come inside?"
He nodded to me and I moved to the side to let him walk in. I had barely managed to start cleaning before he had arrived so the living room was still a mess. I cleared a spot for the both of us to sit on opposite couches so that we were facing each other.
After a few minutes I cleared my throat, "What do you need? I will try to help if I can."
He sighed then took a deep breath, "It's about Clary. It happened a few days ago when you had been gone. A few God of War Knight had come."
"Are you not on good terms with Monastery of the God of War?" I asked. I had seen Knights of the God of War at his home before. So why he would have problems with them I cannot be certain.
"I am but they are not the problem. At a dinner, the Son of War's youngest brother, Camden, had come. He is a friend of Clary's, have been since they meet when Clary was two. They had been close since then." he told me with a frown, "Has asked for her hand."
It is fairly common for high officials to come through town. It is one of the most traveled through town. Obviously anyone important would come to Caster's home. He owns five of the towns surrounding and including Maple Wood. He was one of the wealthy men in the God of War territory. It wouldn't be uncommon for someone in the Son of War's family to get married to a rich land owners.
"Isn't that a good thing? She would be taken care of if she were to marry someone like him." I said, my thoughts straying to the red haired girl, "Even if she is a little young."
He shook his head, "It is good that she marries young. I was happy and told him yes. I knew that Clary liked him so she would be happy to marry him."
Confusion was the main thing on my mind. I had no idea why he needed my help. Everything he had told me seemed to be good news that had no need for an assassin like me.
"I don't see the problem here." I told him.
"I was just getting to that. It was the night after Camden left that an assassin came to my house and almost killed my daughter. Then the next two nights the same thing happened. No one has come in the last two days though but I feel that will change soon." He paused. Now I could see what the problem was, "She was not hurt but I am afraid that she could be. She is to be married in a ten days and I am to bring her to the Monastery of the God of War in a week. We will be leaving in four days."
"I see." I said but really, I had no clue what he wanted me to do.
"I would like to higher you to protect her." he said, "I will pay you as much as you want."
Ah, now I see, "I don't know. I'm not a free-lance assassin. I work for someone else who gives me assignments. I am not allowed to take independent jobs. I'm sorry."
"Then how do I get ahold of this this person?" he asked.
I didn't really know how people got ahold of him. I just took the jobs and did them then turned in the amount that was due to him. He was a very secretive person and I didn't even know that much about him. I don't even know his real name. I had seen his initials before. E.D. so I just called him Ed.
"I don't really know that either." I said and he sighed and began to get up, "But I will watch the town for anyone suspicious. I believe keeping the town and its inhabitance safe is an obligation to any citizen."
He looked at me and gave a smile, "At first, I thought that it was you who had come in but when I had brought it up to some of the town council members, they all denied that you could have down it."
He stood up fully and I did the same, "I have never killed anyone that did not deserve it and especially no children."
He nodded and walked to the door. I noticed as his shoulders slouch that I had never seen him use before. It must have been a terrible thing for the man to have had his daughter almost killed.
"Perhaps Lucy can come over a few nights." I said as I opened the door for him
He gave me a strange look, "Aren't you afraid she will get hurt if she is around my daughter who is now a target."
"She was raised by an assassin. She will be fine. Clary will also feel more comfortable with her than anyone else." It seemed like a good thing to cheer him up and he seemed to be thinking about it. I don't like seeing good people depressed like he is.
He looked back at me, "But I thought you couldn't-"
I cut him off, "Unlike me, she is not an assassin. She is just a little girl, albeit, trained by an assassin but has no obligation to the people I work for."
He nodded, "Thank you. I think it will make Clary happy to have a friend over. This party had gotten her mind off of the last few days."
"Good bye," He said and I returned the gesture then closed the door.
Lucy should be back in an hour or two so I would send her over then. I can tell she will be excited about getting to use her skills. She always seems to want to come on my jobs. It would be nice if she would help clean up the house. Lucy is has to be the laziest person I know, well, minus Grisia. Why is it that all the people I end up befriending are lazy, self-centered brats.
I sighed. There was no point getting angry over it. The sooner I start, the sooner it will be finished. I pick up the trash back and begin filling it with the destroyed decorations and trash. I go through the whole house making sure to get everything that those kids might have hidden. Some of the food had somehow ended up on the ceiling. I don't like to blame anyone but I have a good idea it was not any of the adults.
I was finally finished with the trash. I have a good perception of time so I am able to tell how many minute and hours that has past. It took me just below an hour to clean all of that trash up. Now, it's on to the dishes. Why does she have to use so many dishes when she cooks? I ask you that. Now I know how the cleaning crew back at the Holy Temple felt when Ice Knight got into his cooking spree. Incredibly annoying is what it is.
I heard the front door open, "Hey Rin, I'm back."
I put down the dish I am cleaning before walking into the front room, "Lucy, I want you to go over to Clary's house and spend the night."
"Why?" she asked as she sat on the couch and took her shoes off, throwing them on the ground.
"I will tell you as soon as you pick your shoes up and put them by the door and not where someone can trip." I say and she lets out a groan but does what I say, "Good, a few nights ago the Son of War's younger brother proposed to Clary and now assassins are trying to kill her. I want you to go and watch her."
She put her hand on her chin in mock thought, "Hm, let me think." She says in a high voice just to get on my nerves, "Alright, but I get to bring my knife."
"That is fine with me just as long as no one sees it." I tell her, "Before you go, you need to clean the rest of the dishes."
Without leaving her time to argue, I run up the stairs and to my room. I wanted to sleep. Kids have way too much energy and their parents talk too much. I soon fall asleep and am in blissful happiness.
I think I did a pretty good job. Please review.
