Solonna doesn't give Sean a second to react, just grabs him, and pulls him towards the forest. "Run, Sean!"

Permalink

"Mum! What's-"

Permalink

Three more figures run at them, guns raised, but not at Sean. Just his mother. 

Permalink

Solonna shoves Sean away, as far as she can, and grabs three throwing knives from her belt, rolling into the cover of the closest building. 

Permalink

"Get after her! I've got the boy!" Two of the figures peel off, and the last advances on Sean. 

Permalink

Sean allows himself one moment to panic, call himself an idiot for not grabbing a weapon. 

Permalink

And then once the figure is closer, he kicks up, aiming for the knee, not waiting for the figure to react before he's launching up, a punch aimed for the figure's throat. 

Permalink

They drop their gun, hand going to their throat.

Permalink

Sean grabs the gun, and fires once, into the spot just above the figure's goggles. 

Permalink

The body hits the ground. 

Permalink

Sean's first kill. 

Permalink

He throws the gun aside, and takes off, keeping low and quiet, and heading towards Desmond's hill. He doesn't think about anything but finding his brother. He can't. 

He doesn't have time. 

Permalink

There's a body in front of him. Glassy eyed, bloodied from the many gunshots. 

It's Kel. 

Permalink

Kel trained the youngest of their Assassins. Helping perfect their grip as they learned to climb. 

Permalink

But he has a blade on his wrist, and Sean knows that weapon better than any other. 

He mutters thanks as he strips it from Kel, and fastens it quickly to his arm. 

Permalink

He keeps running through the compound - his home - , and forces himself not to slow down as he watches friends murdered, forces himself not to wonder where his mother, his father, Zavi are, because he has to find Desmond. He has to find his brother. 

Permalink

"This one's running for the hills!" Calls a voice. 

Permalink

It's silenced as an Assassin descends from the roof, landing on them hard enough to break their neck. 

Permalink

Sean keeps running-

Permalink

And when he finds Desmond, his whole body goes cold. 

Permalink

He's tucked as close as he can to a wall, and when he sees Sean, his eyes are bright with terrified tears. 

Permalink

"We know you're here, boy! We're not here to hurt you. We just wanna take you to a nice place!" Calls one of the six figures advancing on Desmond's hiding place. 

Desmond is trapped. 

Permalink

Sean thinks he can take down three before they kill him, but at least that will give Desmond time to run. He'll be able to catch up with their mom, or maybe Zavi will find him. 

Sean flicks his blade open, and peels away from the shadows, ready to launch himself at the closest one. 

Permalink

Something silver catches the light of the moon- 

And a knife is sticking though the neck of Sean's target. The figure grabs at their throat, bubbling around the knife. 

"The fuck!? Show yourself!" The figures turn from finding Desmond, the light of their torches swinging around. 

Permalink

"Got one with all your names on them!" Zavi shouts, another knife ready in his hands.
