Coming Undone Chapter 6
"Amelia....Amelia....wake up!" I opened my eyes slowly to see Altair's nervous looking face staring at me. I blinked a few times and looked around. I was in the medical wing of Maysaf, and nurses and healers were walking around, taking care of patients and just talking. I felt something cool on my forehead, and reached up to feel a cool rag on it. My throat felt parched and I coughed, wanting water. Altair put a water skin to my lips and I sipped on it.
"Why did you tell her?" I heard Altair ask Malik. He shrugged. "Well, you had better remember, Malik, because she could have hurt herself!"
"And I would not have let that that happen!" I heard Malik snap back. His voice seemed to ring in my head and I groaned loudly. They looked at me and lowered their voices so I couldn't hear them any more. I sighed, and closed my eyes.
In my dream I was running away from a black cloud. It spread out on all sides and it seemed impossible to escap

"Work?" I asked, my curiosity piqued. Al Mualim nodded and held up a scroll.
"The names of nine men adorn this paper. Plague bringers and those who profit from the war." He said, and Altair and I glanced at each other. "They make sure that the Crusades continue. By killing these men, you will sow the seeds of peace, not only in the region, but in Altair as well."
"Nine lives in exchange for mine?" Altair asked. The Master nodded.
"That seems to be a fair exchange, wouldn't you agree, Amelia?" He asked, looking at me. I raised my hands in surrender.
"I guess, if you say so." I said.
"I do. Any questions?"
Altair shook his head. "Only where we begin." The Master chuckled and I raised an eyebrow at Altair. He shrugged.
"Go after a man named Tamiar. He profits from selling weapons to the Saracens. Amelia, go talk to Malik. He'll have your task." The Master nodded. "I'
The Busy Buzzing Bee (UnMagiced!MaltzarXOC) Emily Wilson glanced to her right at the reddish haired teenager-she had decided that he was a teenager, he didn't look much older than fifteen-and smiled. The boy was looking around at all the sights and smells of Caraway town, where they sat, enjoying their lunch.
"So, Maltzar," She said, and the boy looked up at the mention of his name. People were walking past where the two sat, some waving at the pretty Ranger and her company. She had engaged in an interesting conversation that Maltzar had gotten to join in on about a farmer losing his prized chickens. "How are you enjoying staying with a Ranger. I know I haven't been around much, so I'm trying to-"
Maltzar laughed. "Do you think I'm a little girl?" He asked, smiling to make sure Emily had gotten the implied message. "Its fine. I've actually only been in a cabin once before. Its new."
A knight paused next to their table. "Is that who I think it is?" He asked, sitting do
Coming Undone Chapter 4
When we saw the other assassin's, we glanced at each other warily. They were staring at Altair, and I nudged him. "What did you do this time?"
"I don't know."He said.
All of a sudden, I was pulled away from him and he was dragged to the front of the crowd. "Let me go!" I yelled, fighting against the assassins that held my arms. "Let me go!"
"Calm down," a familiar voice said. "He did something wrong and he's being punished." I looked at Malik.
"He saved my life, let me go!"
"That doesn't excuse his actions." Malik said. Both assassins dropped my arms and I ran to the front of the crowd.
"I cannot allow a traitor among us." I heard Al Mualim say and I looked at him, trying to keep a glare off my face. He walked over to Altair with a small blade, and I knew what was going to happen. I saw a flash of light as the blade moved and went into Altair's stomach. I pulled mys
Coming Undone Chapter 3 When we reached the village, the only thing there was chaos. Women were running and screaming as male assassins fought the Templars who had made their way into the village. Bodies from both sides were strewn about, like rag dolls in a child's room. I stifled what I thought was a sob at the women who had also died, or who had been seriously hurt. Templars and Assassins alike ran each way, trying to over whelm the other.
"Lets get down there!" Altair said, and I nodded following him into the melee.
As I drew my sword from its sheathe, a woman ran into me, and we were both sent tumbling, me trying not to stab her. As we both came to a stop, people surrounded us. I jumped to my feet and looked around me. Three Templars had chosen us as their targets. Yipee.
"Look what we found. Two girls away from their husbands." One said, and I felt bile rising in the back of my throat. The woman behind me gave a startled cry but I looke
Coming Undone Chapter 1 I was half way back to the village when I feel someone pull on my cloak and throw me into a wall, scattering civilians like birds. I blinked my eyes a few times, trying to get rid of the reflex tears that had sprung to them, and looked up.
"Hey there, cutie." The man said, smiling. I sighed when I recognized him. His name was Tom, and he was a Templar. And, apparently, in love with me as well. "Saw you kill that guy and thought 'can't let her get away with that!' so here we are."
I smirked as I stood up. "Here we are indeed. After all, without us assassins running around killing people, there wouldn't be anything for you dears to do." I see him tighten his hands into fists and it makes my smirk turn into a wolfish smile.
I launched my attack after I was done talking. My hidden blade slid out of its sheathe in a flash of light, and I jumped, aiming for Tom's throat. He dodged, and my blade went into empty space. I gaspe
