    Wonderful as always. And how come Blue gets the cool bold voice?

    Because when I was chosing color's for different people, I realized too late that I gave blue speech to Mordokai. And I couldn't use any other color with a name such as "Blue". So I decided to bold it.

    Paladin Academy: Chapter 2: Part 8
    -Cast-
    Recaiden

    Spoiler
    Show
    The Crescent Moon casts the Fortress of the Academy's shadow down on the village below. The streets are mainly deserted, except for a vendor cleaning up his produce. He glances up at the fortress on top of the distant hill. Cursing under his breath, he puts the last few apples away into a box before packing it up.

    He counted a total of 26 apples missing from the stack he had on display. Street Urchins, thieves, and people who treated themselves to "Free samples" were always stealing from him and the other vendors around. How could they get away from this under the eye of an elite band of knights in training? What good were they doing for anyone in this town.

    Straining his legs, he picks up the box and walks into the tent behind him, keeping the excess supplies. When he turns to place the box down, something out of the corner of his eye caused him to jump.
    "So where is it?"
    The man shook nervously in the presence of the cloaked figure. He put down the box haphazardly and hurried over to a stack of boxes. Moving them slightly he extracted a sealed envelope. As he turns around, the cloaked figure snatches it out of his hand, studying the outside.
    "Tempted to try and open it and see what was inside?"
    The man tried to stammer, but instead ending up shaking his head.
    "Good. You are much better off not knowing what the King has been notifying me about. Just remember your place as my document delivery point and your head will still stay attached to the rest of your body."

    Recaiden turned and left as the man unconsciously put a hand to his throat. He walked down several streets, looking eager at the envelope with the secret documents given to him. He turned down a dark alley and almost ran into a huge, burly figure in front of him. Looking up, he saw several tall, muscular men glaring down on him, blocking his way.
    "Could you please move? I have far too much important business to attend to."

    The men looked at each other and smirked. The one in front, who looked like the leader, cracked his knuckles threateningly. Recaiden stuffed the envelope into a pocket of his cloak and sighed.
    "You are picking the wrong man to mug, my friends. For mainly two reasons."
    He took off the cloak and threw it aside.
    "One, I don't carry any money with me for this type of reason.
    The men start advancing on him, ready to catch him when he would dodge aside. He reached down to his belt.
    "And 2..."
    In a blur of movement, almost too fast for a human to see, Recaiden unsheathed his dagger and plunged it into the heart of the closest man.
    "...I have absolutely no problem taking your lives."

    The other 2 men watch, completely stunned as their leader falls over backwards dead. Then they bellow in rage and lunge at him. Recaiden effortlessly dodges their brute movement and cuts one deep along the hip. As he doubles up in pain, the other manages to grab Recaiden in a full body hold. He is successful for about 2 seconds until Recaiden brings his knee into the man's gut, causing him to let go. A second later, the man falls over with his throat slashed.

    Recaiden reaches down and rips a piece of cloth off of the man in front of him. He then begins to clean the blood off the blade of the dagger. He didn't want these imbeciles blood to mix and contaminate the blood of his target tomorrow. He takes a step forward, but feels a hand closes around his ankle. He turns to see the man he cut across the hip, gasping for breath heavily. Recaiden smiles.
    "I'm afraid, your friends got off easy. That poison is not a pleasant way to die."
    His smile widens as his mouth starts foaming.
    "Don't worry. I cut you deep, so a lot of poison got in. Your death will not take so long. It can last for 20 agonizing minutes if I just barely scratch you."
    He kicks the man's hand away. The man looks up at him with bloodshot eyes before they turn up into his head. His entire body starts to convulse and tremble as if he was having a seizure. Recaiden steps around him and picks up the cloak. After checking to see the envelope was secured, he quietly donned it. He turns and continues his way down the alley. Behind him, the gasp of a dying man's last breath is heard before silence settles over the area.

    *************

    Recaiden opens a shabby wooden door to a plain room with a small desk and a bed. He closes the door and slides the lock into place. He didn't want any of the other people staying at this tavern to stumble in on accident.

    Walking over to the desk, he pulls out the pieces of parchment and lay them across the desk. Every piece was gold and crucial to his mission. The first piece was a small note from the King Lock informing him that the leader, Mordokai, had left the academy on a trip. The second piece contained a time frame where all the other paladins would be outside training. And the third, most important piece, was a blueprint of the entire fortress, complete with a secret entrance that would lead him into the center of the fortress itself. The note stated that none of the paladins knew of this entrance's existence, and it would be his best shot at getting into the fortress.

    Recaiden smiled, turning to look up at the fortress. The crescent moon shone overhead with a line of clouds almost trailing from the end of it. The scene almost portrayed as if death itself was preparing for the execution of the Paladin he was going to kill.

    The Paladin, Viola.

    Right, so, I will be making updates again. Sorry for the disappear. But before I do, I want to double check who all is still going to read this. I'm talking mostly to the lurkers to just say, "Hey, were still lurking." The reason is that the next few parts will be filled with so much action that I don't want to leave anyone out of discussion.
