A/N: I saw the G.I. Joe movie a couple of days ago, and I completely fell in love with two characters: Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. I decided that Snake Eyes really deserved a love interest, and there weren't enough Snake Eyes fanfics, and that's why I'm writing this fanfic. I hope you like it!!!!!! ^_^

Prologue

I walked down the alleyway of Tokyo, Japan. Whenever I looked up, I could see the beautiful city lights, and you could hear the sounds of the city faintly in the city. I was about to see my brother, whom I hadn't seen in ten years.

I heard a movement behind me, and I pulled out a knife, which I aways kept in my shirt. I turned around, never letting my guard down.

"Who is there? Come out before I kill you!" I shouted into the darkness. A figure moved in the shadows, and I jumped six feet into the air, and landed right on top of someone. I held the knife to the strangers throat.

"Relax," the stranger said, "It is your brother."

I got up off him, and helped my brother up. We stepped cautiously out of the shadows. He hadn't changed much since I had last seen him. He had a strong build with jet black hair, and his eyes showed a sense of determination and ruthlessness.

I finished looking at my older brother and hugged him, "I seriously have missed you. It's been too long."

"It really has, " he said, smiling.

I looked at him up and down, "You haven't changed a bit. Except for this scar. How are they treating you at Cobra?"

"It's just a wound that is still healing after two years! He stabbed me, and I fell into the ice. Can you believe it?"

"Wow, who did it though? Did you know his name?" I asked. No one messes with my big brother and gets away with it.

"Oh, I know him all right. We trained together under my master. He was such a show-off. Then he took a vow of silence after I killed our master. Poor fool," my brother sighed.

I had never killed anybody before, but my family had eight generations of assassins. I had wanted to join them for awhile, ever since I was fifteen years old. However, my father had always thought that women should not participate in such practices. Of course, I disobeyed him and I taught myself the ways of the ninja while my brother was in training. Now, I was considered one of the most dangerous females in the world, which is an honor.

"Why did you want to see me after ten years?" I asked curiously.

He smiled a malicious smile, "Mary, I hear that you have been accepted to G.I. Joe, am I correct?"

I had, which would be another honor to most people, but if I joined, I would have to fight against my own brother, which I wouldn't do for any amount of honor in the world.

"Yes, for martial arts. But I don't think I will accept it. They have already tried to kill you, so I won't help them. Why do you ask?"

"Well, the man who made this scar works for that particular agency. I would like you to infiltrate it, and win over the affections of him."

"Why?" I asked.

"Don't you know, my sister? Men fight different when they are in love. They become lazy, distracted, pitiful creatures, and I want revenge. Isn't that enough? But you must remember not to kill him. Leave him to me. I am the one who must kill him. Is that clear?"

I nodded, but I had another question, "What makes you so sure that he will be smitten by me?"

"You two have so much in common. It is obvious. You are both determined, skilled fighters. However, there is one thing you must remember, my sister."

"Why?" I asked again.

"Don't become to attached."

I nodded. I was game. I wanted revenge, too. He attacked my brother, and it was payback time, "What is his name? I will find him for you!"

Once again, he smiled that malicious smile that made a chill run up my spine, "His name is Snake Eyes."

"Snake Eyes...Okay, I've got it. I'll go as soon as possible. Don't worry, my brother I won't fail you!" I said, while I hugged him tightly.

"I know you won't," he replied, hugging me back.

We both left the embrace, and we headed in our separate directions, and I thought about my new task. I made a vow to myself never to fail. I would never disappoint my brother, Storm Shadow.
