Her Memory and My choice

Jin (part one of two)

First person

Five years prior.

It was a rainy cold night in the city of Cyril. People rushed from their jobs and work to hurry to the comfort of their homes. A single teenage boy stood in the rain his face hidden by the dark shadows he stared at the empty city street. He hated rain. But that didn't matter in his line of work. He had a job to do, he needed it… even if it meant spending time away from his only family… Valo… His little brother was waiting at home for him most likely…

"I wonder what it is this time." The boy muttered. Suddenly a robed figure appeared next to him sitting back with a blade strapped to her waist. The ninja was pretty in a cold sort of way. Her long raven black hair was soft and smelled like flowers. Her cold green eyes flashed darkly…

"Are you Jin?" she asked as he nodded.

"…" she closed her eyes for a moment and then looked to him. "Your younger then I thought… Jalem." She said as she held out her hand.

"I get that a lot… Jalem…" Jin said slowly waiting for the ninja to continue. "Can we sort of hurry it up?" He asked as she smirked.

"Relax… You might be here for the money but I don't want to run into death… take it slow… Killing and working in the shadows isn't always about speed…" She said slowly. Her own eyes seemed to show her sincerity on the matter. Jin waited as the rain swished and slashed loudly almost as if only it and them existed.

"What-" Jin started to ask as Jalem held out a paper. On it was her face.

"I need an escort… You game?" She asked as Jin nodded… "good… I'll see you tomorrow then."

"May I ask why?" he said suddenly as Jalem looked back.

"Why what?" She replied…

"Why you want an escort to a sky pirate?" Jin asked stubbornly.

"Why do you work with the red wings?" She replied. Jin stared at her retreating figure. For once maybe he should have denied the mission… He sighed and turned away. Nearby was a Vera child maybe ten at most. Her sunny smile radiated from her as she and her mother both ran home past him in the rain.

"Mommy mommy! Lookie rain everywhere!" the girl shouted as Jin smiled. He sighed then as well…

"Sorry Valo… looks like I'm going to be gone again…" Jin muttered as he slowly headed home… maybe life wasn't all about speed to Jalem but it was all Jin had… he needed to protect what he had… even if he sold his soul to the mist…

He pulled his hood down and short dark green locks just shades darker then his eyes fluttered in the breeze. His face had no scars or faults. He seemed far to young to be involved with the likes of the Red Wings… and that he was…
