Subject     Chapter 1: Revenge is a B***h

So there I was just on the road, walking casually, when I was thrown off
the road by a carriage being pulled by two black horses. It didn't even stop
to see if I was okay. I was pissed at the people in the carriage, it didn't
matter who was in there, I would rob them of any wealth they had and then
kill them. I followed them, I knew exactly where they were going, Palanthas.
I tracked them for 3 days, there were times when I had lost them, but I
didn't give up! I kept searching for the carriage tracks. When I found them
I followed, while thinking gruesome thoughts. 

They lived in the better part of Palanthas, I found the carriage outside a
mansion, on mansion st.. Obviously I would get more out of this than I had
originally thought. I waited till night for it would be the best time for me
to be stealthy. Like a shadow, I traversed the side of the house, and
climbed through a window into an empty room. I put my ear to the mahogany
door and listened for any sounds. Eiron heard nothing, so she grabbed her
knife from her side, and opened the door.

She looked into the hallway, nobody. It was the perfect situation. She had
an idea of how a mansion looked on the inside. This hadn't been her first
time stealing from the rich. She walked to the second door on the right and
put her ear to the door. Snoring could be heard inside the room. She
carefully and silently opened the door. It creaked as she did. She walked to
the perpetrators and raised her blade, and brought it down on the man. He
was killed instantly, the woman awoke and screamed, Eiron slashed the
woman's throat and the screaming stopped. The woman had alerted the
neighbors and people in the house of her presence. Eiron would have to skip
on stealing really valuable objects, but that didn't stop her from grabbing
things on the way out. 

She climbed out the window and descended to the ground and hid in the
shadows just as the Solamnic Guards came running over to see what the fuss
was about. Eiron waited till the night went quiet, then she made her escape
from the city.

Subject     Chapter 2: The New Recruit Part one

"Your mission is to destroy the goblins that have been killing all of our
new members," said a voice Eiron recognized as her teacher.

"Yes sir. It shall be done," Eiron said as she bowed. "I shall begin right
away." Eiron had expected for her teacher to answer, but there was no
respond. The young assassin turned around and grabbed her things from her
room. She left nothing behind, for she had a feeling that she wouldn't be
returning for a long while. So she knew the goblins had always ambushed
people in the Neraka Forest, so that was the first place she rushed
towards.


Stopping only for a quick bite to eat, and sleep. The journey lasted 2 days.
Eiron was ready to kill the goblins, for she had a vengeance. The goblins
had killed her husband while he was on a run between Neraka and Jalek. He
and his draconian were slaughtered. Eiron would not share their fate, she
wouldn't; she couldn't! If she failed her life would be for nothing. It
would be worthless. The assassin took all the precautions she needed. She
used mud and vegetation to cover her skin for camouflage. She only wore dark
clothing that night. Eiron had a quick bite to eat and then went padding off
into the forest.

Eiron listened very carefully for any sounds of movement. She heard none.
This was not a good sign for her, she knew that the forest shouldn't be as
quiet as it was, so she climbed the nearest tree and jumped like a monkey
from tree to tree. She was barely noticeable to anyone below. You would have
to look up to see her. Eiron then started to hear voices. She knew the
voices well; they were that of the goblins. She got closer to the
encampment, and as she did, the voices got quieter. They could hear her!

Then a scream came from behind her as a goblin brought its sword down. Eiron
was caught by surprise when the blade had missed her. The goblin must have
just woken up to her walking through the forest causing it to be drowsy.
Eiron grabbed her sword from its sheath and jabbed at the goblin. It fell
limp over her blade. She yanked her blade from the carcass and caught the
next goblin that had heard the commotion, and beheaded the beast. Now there
had been so much commotion that all the goblins in the encampment had heard
her. They all had drawn their swords and came running at Eiron. A yell of
triumph had started behind her. This wasn't a goblin yell, it was too deep.
A draconian with Dragonarmy armor came running alongside Eiron. 

Thought you might need some help," the draconian said. 

"Thank you this will not be forgotten." The goblins came in waves. Swords
collided and blood was shed; not human or draconian blood, but thick sticky
goblin blood had watered the ground. There were 1...2...3...4 waves of
goblins, each had 10 goblins. Forty goblin carcasses were lying on the
ground. The draconian and Eiron had to take a rest before either of them
could speak. When they had caught their breath, they began to talk.

"So you are an excellent fighter, draconian," complimented Eiron.

"But not as good as you I must say! You must have killed twice as many
Goblins as I did. You were everywhere. Where did you learn to fight like
that?" asked the draconian.

"My husband, Sfeir, had taught me most of what I know. He was a very devoted
husband and excellent warrior of the Dragon-"

"WHAT!!! Your husband was Sfeir? I was the only survivor of his party when
he had died. I take shame in living that day. That's why everyone considers
me dead, for I had been a coward and ran away from that battle. I was
brutally punished for this. I will never live it down. I am now nothing but
a soldier of the Queen."

"I do not hate you for leaving Sfeir. I am also disappointed in a soldier of
the Dragonarmy, but I do not hate you."

"Thank you, miss. For such kindness, and an amazing skill with a blade, I
will consider you to my superiors, to be one of the members of the red
Dragonarmy. It is the least I can do. Plus, it is time for you to take your
husband's place."

"Thank you so much." Eiron and her new found friend headed for Neraka, for
Eiron to be enrolled into the Dragonarmy.

Subject     Big Mistake

It was a Friday night, and all was quiet. Nothing could be heard in the
DragonArmy Clan hall. Eiron was the only one in there, or so she thought.
She was on her way to go torture the DA's new Solamnic guard. She took pride
in torturing the solamnics. When she got into the room, she saw something
levitating off the ground. It looked like an orb of some sort. She quickly
grabbed it and put it in her backpack. Having no ideas whose it was. She
totally forgot about the torture session. She ran off to her quarters to
examine the orb more closely. When she got to her room, she was surprised to
see two bozak draconian there searching her quarters.

"What the hell are you doing!?" yelled Eiron as she pushed the draconians
away from her stuff.

"We were ordered to search your quarters for a certain item that may have
been stolen." Eiron pulled out the globe-like object and showed it to the
draconians.

"Is this what you're looking for?"

"Yes it is, and you are under arrest for stealing it," the nearest draconian
pulled out some handcuffs and handcuffed Eiron.

"But I've done nothing wrong! I just found it by that Solamnic guard." The
draconian didn't listen to her. They dragged her to the altar of Takhisis.
There she was! Eiron had never seen such a beautiful sight, even though
Takhisis faced away from her. She was truly blinded by awesomeness. Eiron
fell to her knees and begged for forgiveness, but she didn't know what for.


"Stop it!" Takhisis ordered as she spun around and faced Eiron. A feeling of
terror ran through her body. "You know what you have done, and you also know
that this is a huge offense against the DragonArmy. What if Lahrag had
needed the globe that you had stolen? He could have died in battle, and for
this you must be severely punished. I promise you that when I am through
with you, you will wish that you had never been born." Eiron could almost
see a smile appear on Takhisis' face. "Now let's begin." Takhisis waved her
arms and Eiron's shackles came off. 

Eiron stood up and wondered what was going to happen to him. Then out of
nowhere Lahrag appeared in the room. "Lahrag, I you were curious who had
taken your globe, well here he is. Now do with him what you will. Punish
him, or I will punish you." Lahrag nodded.

The first punch hurt the worst. It went straight to the nose. It immediately
bled profusely. Then another came, then another, and another. Eiron lost
count of how many times she had been hit; all she knew was what it felt like
to be tortured like the Solamnic guard. After what seemed like an hour
Takhisis told Lahrag to stop.

"Now, Eiron, have you learned your lesson?" asked Takhisis. Eiron nodded.
"You sure cause I was hoping to get at least one hit on you?" Eiron nodded
two more time to prove he was done. "Well okay you may go." She quickly
stood up and started to leave, but not before Takhisis was able to get her
one hit in. Takhisis did a roundhouse kick to Eiron's back. The kick would
have crippled Chuck Norris. Eiron flew forward and ran into a wall. Eiron
got up again and ran as fast as she could to her quarters. Laughing could be
heard from behind her.

Subject     Eiron's Rebirth!

It was Eiron's mission to kill the leader of the elf rebels. He was
supposed to kill the elven captain; obviously this would be his last day of
living. The clash of the Dragonarmy raid party and the elven warriors
sounded like thunder, the rumble of the ground could be felt for at least a
mile. Eiron then had a flashback when she had first joined the Dragonarmy,
and how powerful she thought herself to be, but she was ignorant then. Then
she remembered the story the draconian had said of her husband. It was that
moment that she had promised to avenge her husband. 

Back in the real world, Eiron had to move from shadow to shadow to make sure
she was not seen assassinating the captain. She didn't want a bad record.
She saw the chapel that was said to be his home, she bolted to it and
climbed up the wall that kept the grounds protected from assassins,
obviously it hadn't stopped Eiron. 

Then as Eiron crossed the threshold into the main building a boom could be
heard in the distance, meaning the first wave broke through the wall. Out of
the corner of her eye, Eiron saw someone that looked familiar running to a
room. She followed him into the room. The man didn't notice her come into
the room. It was the captain! Eiron pulled out her dagger ran up to the
captain and then put the blade to his neck and then noticed who he was. It
was her father, Haroondle!


"That's not how it happened! He died because he was saving me from the
Dragonarmy's forces," explained Haroondle.

"So they lied to me?!"

"I'm so sorry, Eiron. I really am. The path you have taken is not written in
stone you know? It can be rewritten." Eiron stared at Haroondle for a long
while pondering the thought. 

"Once again my husband will not have died in vain! I will smite those that
have killed him, but also I shall annihilate the ones that had lied to me.
From this moment on, I will join forces with you in order to prove my
worth."

"He would be very proud, just as I am at this moment. You have a new
beginning, use it well!"

"That I shall..."

Subject     Eiron's Rebirth part 2

After Haroondle and Eiron had fled the chapel, they ran and ran through
miles of forest till they finally came to an opening. Across which was an
elfish village. They walked casually towards the village, but Eiron was
greeted by spear tips. Haroondle wave the spears away, but they went back to
their original position. Then the leader of the village came up to Eiron and
backhanded her across the face. "You are an assassin of the Dragonarmy! I
have seen you before, when you killed my brother. Now you must pay!" yelled
Carun, leader of the elfin village.

"WAIT!!!!" yelled Haroondle waving his arms around. "She has come here as
both a friend and my son. Any who wants to kill her must kill me first."
Haroondle was serious, he would not budge.

"Even though she is your daughter, she is part of the Dragonarmy? You must
have a good reason for this?"

"I have seen the good in her eyes. She has made the proper vows! You will
not hurt her. You know our laws! Do you dare disobey them? In doing so, you
will be giving up your leadership," Haroondle argued. Carun turned around
obviously pissed off.

"Fine, but she must do one thing," a wicked smile appeared on Carun. Eiron
was then led to a big jail cell. Inside there was a draconian, more
importantly, the draconian that had recruited her to the Dragonarmy. "Kill
him and you can join our cause," said Carun.

Eiron had no problem with killing him. He was the one who had lied to her
face. The draconian stared at Eiron, fear was in his eyes. Eiron didn't know
whether the draconian deserved what he was going to get. Sacrifices would
have to be made in order to join the side of good. He was already too far
into the process to turn back. 

Eiron pulled out her dagger and in one quick motion, the draconian's blood
was spilled on the ground. The cell door opened and in came the guards to
get rid of the body. Eiron stood there staring at the pool of blood that
lined the ground. She was starting to wonder if this was all going to be
worth it. Eiron walked out of the cell and stared at Haroondle. Eiron knew
that Haroondle could see the disappointment in her eyes. Eiron wanted to
leave the relentless murder of her blade behind her, but she knew that that
could not happen. 

"Is this necessary? I left murder behind me when I left the Dragonarmy."

Is it necessary?! Yes of course it is. We have to make sure you are not a
spy."

"Okay, I have proven my worth. If it helps me get through all this process,
that draconian was an old friend of mine," said Eiron. Carun pondered this
in disbelief.

"Haroondle, will you take responsibility for Eiron?"

"Yes, I trust her so much that I will put my life on the line."

"Eiron will you please relinquish your weapons to your father?" Eiron did as
she was told. "Okay it is settled. Eiron you have gained our trust do not
destroy it for it could mean your father's life." Eiron nodded. Carun left
the room leaving Haroondle and Eiron behind.

"Thank you," said Eiron. "I will do anything you tell me."

"Much is going to become of you. You be trusted by many of the elves. At
first they may not be welcoming, but they'll warm up to you." They then left
the room and went to Haroondle's quarters to make Eiron a room.
