He'd heard all he needed to hear. And he knew what to do...
"You must not do this."
If he didn't act now, all their hard work would've been fruitless...
"Whatever Juno's planning - however horrible it might be today - we'll find a way to stop it. But the alternative, what you want - there's no hope in it!"
"If you free her - you'll be destroyed."
Many would suffer... He wouldn't let that be...
"It will happen in an instant. There will be no pain."
Otherwise, the alternative would be too cruel...
"It's done, Minerva. The decision's made."
He had faith in humanity. They can fight back. Will fight back...
"Then the consequences of this mistake are yours to live - and die - with."
She faded out of view. Only the four - scratch that, five - of them remained...
"You need to go. All of you. Get as far away from here as you can."
"Come with us. We'll find a another way."
He dismissed it. Without hesitation...
"There isn't time."
That tone both comforted and hurt him. But it was too late...
"You know it's true. It's already started. I need to do this now. So go! GO!"
Waited until they all fled the area, then he faced the pedestal.
Palms open, arms stretched out. Then, the sphere in his grasp.
A moment of seizure and drainage. It blinded his senses until...
Blankness enveloped his being.
He was gone.
Author's note: Hey, all! How comes the reading? If you've clicked this, then I hope the rest of this fanfic will please you.
Anywho, while I'm writing "Dia-Up Assassin", this little piece came into mind. Again, originally for amusement, this one also got a little more of my creativity than I first lent the idea with. So, to quickly explain:The prologue if just my made-up point-of-view narration of the last scene from Assassin's Creed III, where Desmond Miles chose to save the world while reluctantly setting Juno free. The rest of the story is besically...in a sense, the afterlife (?)
If you've read Mitch Albom's "The Five People You Meet In Heaven", then I hope this will be clear enough.
So, hopefully, I can give little bits of updates on this while also doing my other work (and art.) I WILL make a cover for this, though. Just wait.
Reviews and suggestions are welcome! O u O)/
