Chapter 9: Fight
"Centurions are a Roman Legion,
So why choose something Roman?
Why not name yourselves something Greek?"
"That'll be weird,
Having a Greek name for a Greek follower
Would be a bit cliché
I choose Roman since I know we're not alone in this world."
-Dr. Drake and Morrigan conversing in a conversation
As days passed, Morrigan has gotten used to living with Raven even though she doesn't show up at dinner or breakfast. Each day is the same. Wake up, get ready for the Academy, eat breakfast, go to the Academy, board the Legacy, go to classes, and then go back home. The same boring schedule, Morrigan thought she would escape from. When she climbed down the stairs she saw her friend talking rapidly in Russian on her phone.
Who is she talking to? Morrigan thought. She went all the way down the stairs and watch Raven yelling on her phone. Morrigan only understood a bit of Russian like, 'Stalingrad' and 'No'. Ellie the maid saw Morrigan and gave her the signal to be quiet. She nodded her head. Few minutes passed and Raven hung up and sat on the couch looking exhausted. "Hey Raven," Morrigan said, "What happened?"
Raven looked at Morrigan with a sadden expression. She stood up and grabbed Morrigan's shoulder and looked at her eye to eye. "I'm not going to be here for a while," Raven said, "Natalie told me information I need to retrieve for her."
"Why can't she do it herself?" Morrigan shouted, "I thought we promised ourselves to stay in school and not get side tracked?"
Raven bit her lip. "I'll only be gone for a few days," she said, "I'll be back before you even know it. But I'll be at school today."
Morrigan feeling a bit sad and angry ran out of the house and ran all the way to where the Legacy took place. She saw the rest of the Centurions but she stayed far away from them. Stupid Raven, she thought. You freakin jerk I first lost my parents, then my siblings, and then I'll lose you! I hate you, you stupid friend.
Morrigan ran and ran until her body couldn't take it anymore. She saw a tree and climbed to the top. She grabbed her legs and curled up on the top branch. Morrigan cried softly, she didn't want anyone to leave. "Life is nothing but a lie," Morrigan said to herself.
"Yo," a voice shouted from below.
Morrigan looked down to find Crow smiling at her. "I don't want to come down," Morrigan said. "I want to know that my friends won't leave me."
Crow sighed and put his books down. He then held out his hands. "I'll catch you," he said reassuringly.
Morrigan felt tears swell onto her eyes. She swung her legs over the branch and fell into Crow's arms. She kept on crying into his arms. Crow held her close and reassured her no one would leave her side. "Will you tell me what happened?"
"R-Raven's leaving," Morrigan said, "She promised that we'd always be together."
"She won't leave you," Crow said, "She said she made a promise right? I bet you she'll keep it until the end."
Morrigan looked at Crow, her eyes red from crying. "You think so?"
"I know so," he said, "C'mon let's board the Legacy before it leaves without us."
Morrigan wiped her bleary eyes and smiled at Crow who looked at her when he finished picking his stuff up. They both walked together onto the Legacy and sat next to each other. Morrigan didn't feel like spilling out her tears, but she knew Raven just needs to do her job.
"What a brat she is," Raven muttered.
"Who is?" Longwei asked when they entered Assassin Class.
"No one," she replied.
In Assassin class, the students were taken into two large groups. Raven was in a group with a bunch of students who always scowl or remain quiet. The other group was mostly the happy go lucky people, Longwei was with them. The two teachers present announced they were to play a deadly game in the simulation chamber.
"But," the female teacher said.
"You must elect your leader," the male teacher finished.
Longwei's group voted for him and Raven's group stayed quiet they couldn't even bother electing their leader. "Now," the female teacher said, "We haven't introduced ourselves properly."
"My name is Amon," the man said, "and this is my sister Arsenic."
The students in Longwei's group laughed. They find it funny how the female teacher was named after a poison. Amon laughed too along with his sister, but after a few minutes of laughing they suddenly turned very serious. "This is no laughing matter," Amon growled, "These are our agent names. When an assassin is hired, they only use their codename or agent name not their real name for it will cause many to look and dispose of."
"Remember," Arsenic said, "You will soon have to come up with codenames for yourselves, unless you'll like to die by the hands of your employer."
Everyone followed Arsenic and Amon to the simulation room. Everything was completely white, if someone had super vision they could see faint lines. From the very top a glass panel was seen.
"Today," Amon said, "You'll be playing a game called Death Trap."
"The rules are simple," Arsenic said, "The group you will be in has an arsenal of weapons on either side. Your group must watch out for their own backs, remember assassins are loners and they blend well in the shadows. Don't get caught or it'll have a bad side effect on your physical health."
"Now," Amon said, "Wait for us to go up there and then you may begin picking your weapon."
The two disappeared only to reappear up at the glass panel. Each group separated from each other and found an arsenal full of weapons. Raven grabbed a sniper rifle with telescopic and infrared sensors. Everyone else grabbed their weapons and fanned out.
Longwei and his teammates split into three groups. Raven sat on top of a building scoping the area with her naked eye. She breathed in and out. From above Arsenic and Amon watched their students destroying one another. Arsenic paid attention to Longwei who was blending in the shadows and Amon was watching Raven who was shooting all of her opponents without hesitation.
"This girl is different," Amon muttered. "She could be a professional in a couple of weeks, if this continues the Titan Council will have the youngest member."
"But there is also the others," Arsenic replied.
The two agents watch Longwei and Raven fight against one another. Much like their previous class, Raven and Longwei know each other's weakness. It would be in a matter of seconds till one of them drop.
