So, time has finally opened up for me to get back to my real trade. Writing. I have moved, settled in, finished most of my training in my new/old job and have finally been able to take a true minute to breath and have to myself and my imagination.
What’s happened? How did the move go? You, possibly, ask.” The move went smoothly!” I would exclaim if asked. We were done in time for the big college game. I had a lot of help from Brian, his parents and sisters, and my friends Kitt and Jesse. I found out a few things about myself, one being of which that I apparently pack much differently and more organized than most and what’s really necessary. Also found out that even apart from getting rid/throwing away/donating a large quantity of my belongings/junk I have come to the realization that I own a lot of CRAP! We filled, to the brim, a large produce truck about the same size as the largest U-Haul truck with all of my belongings in my tiny one bedroom apartment. I did not think I owned SO MUCH!
Now there were some down falls, literally. I, of course, did my number of trips, falls, crashes, and falling from the sidewalk into the grass with a desk as Kitt semi laughed at me. An old entertainment center that was bought from target and put together back in 2005 went end over end as Jesse pushed it over the lawn to the trash. And Brian had a large three seating couch dropped on his leg UP the stairs. Luckily he was fine and no serious injuries occurred.
What’s happened in the big/little city? Not much different than the big city actually. I’ve been able to meet and make new friends as well as hang out with old friends and play xbox for recreation. I’ve had my “run ins” with the village crazies just as I did in Tempe when I moved there. All in all, I LOVE IT HERE! The people are great and there is a beautiful view. We have mountains here, which is both amazing and wonderful. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to actually go hiking soon before it gets too hot. But in the meantime I’m going to hop right back into my blog and do my best at finishing my book. Hope you all enjoy!
She killed a man not 15 paces away. He was wearing a billowing outfit, he stuck out like a sore thumb. She’d seen him do someone else in before. She had laughed to herself, thinking he was like a feather pillow that stabs. The pillow that stabs. She giggled to herself. Who said a courtesan couldn’t also be a crazy loon?
She stopped and sat down on a wooden bench, obviously tired and getting the feeling someone new was on her trail. She pushed her hair off her shoulders and crossed her legs as she leaned against the wall behind her. She looked up, the sun casting strange shadows above the building in front of her. Her gaze made it’s way up the building. The Doctor she had saved earlier was leaning over the edge of the building, glaring at her through the creepy mask. It sent chills up her spine.
It would have been her instinct to run, dodge around buildings and hide before attempting to knock him unconscious as he would run by her. But there was someone behind him. He was creeping up on the doctor, it looked like a soldier. What the hell was he doing up there? She watched him tap the Doctor on the shoulder and quickly slip away.
The doctor quickly grabbed at his throat. She could hear him gasping for air before falling from the roof and landing in a dying lump on the ground. His syringe slipped from his hands as she stood smiling at her would be killer and then ran, closing the gates behind her.
Laughter broke the silence.
“HA! Did you see that?!” Brian says.
I’m already laughing, “Of course I did! You saved me!”
“You’re a bastard, Brian.” Cody murmurs over the headset.
I just keep giggling.
One more installment of Assassins Creed Brotherhood.
She is a thief. Blonde hair, blue eyes, normal body shapes, but nothing that the people on the street really stare at. The dirt and grime plastered on her clothes is most likely what drives their eyes the other direction. Nobody wants to make eye contact with a poor beggar.
She narrows her eyes and smirks as she walks confidently towards the doctor. He’s in a full doctor’s mask. Those stupid things that one would have seen at carnival normally, but since the plague the doctors wear them, stuffing the nose or beak with herbs so they wont catch the sniffles. She stiffened her right wrist, sliding half a blade of a broken pair of scissors into her palm, her finger slipping into the loop.
Muscle memory would kick in soon. She would pretend to drop something, tapping his foot as she slinked down. It would draw his attention downward. Perfectly positioning the side of his neck in order for her to practically jump up, shoving all her weight into the blade that would now embed itself into the flesh of the bastar…
A courtesan came out of nowhere, bending the thief over as she flipped over her back and stepped to the side. By the time she was able to stand back up straight all she saw was the blade of a fan sharply gliding with ease across her throat. The courtesan’s smile and black mask the last imprint in her mind before she dies.
“GOD DAMNIT!” I scream.
“What!?” Brian yells over the Xbox360 headset.
“Stupid Courtesan! She better get savior points for that!” I argue.
“Oh, hey! My pursuer is dead. Sweet!” He points out.
“THAT’S BECAUSE SHE KILLED ME!!” I half yell and laugh.
“Oh! Hi honey!” He laughs.
The joys of Assassins Creed Brotherhood on the Xbox360.
