Chapter 2 Q&A
When Altair finally got outside he gaped; this place was nothing like he;d ever seen, buildings that almost touched the sky encased in metal and glass, and even the shorter buildings were unusual they were made out of grey stone and held all sorts of stores, many Altiar had never even heard of before, let alone seen He breathed softly in his native tongue as he looked around; he was confused and admittedly a little scared of this place; it was all alien to him and he had a hard time letting it all sink in of course by this time Alex was already half way down the street by this point; he wasn't about to wait up for the other; and he half hoped that if he want ahead he;d lose Altiar in the crowd and they wouldn't see him again.

Chapter 3- Adjustments
When Dana realized her brother had brought Altair back, she was VERY amused and had a hard time not laughing in Alex's face; despite Altair voluntary leaving out into the big wide and very modern world, her brother had decided to drag him back here despite his insistence he wanted Altiar gone which was a contradiction in itself really, sometimes what Alex DID and what he said were two completely different things.
"Ahem Nice to see you again Altair,did you have a nice walk?" She said as she forced herself not to grin like an idiot; Altair had only been gone an hour, two tops before Alex had decided to bring him back.
"You don't need to look so smug" Alex grumbled to himself as he sat down on the dark sofa on the far side of the room; his arms over his chest; if he wasn't a full grown man and the Blacklight virus, he'd probably pout; just a bit. He didn't want Altiar around he never had, but apparently, he was from the past he had a cache of weapons on his p

Chapter 1: First meeting
Altiar was defiantly the weirdest men Alex Mercer had ever met.
That was one of the first things Alex mercer found out about he assassin; though if he'd had his way he wouldn't have known anything at all because he wouldn't have taken the man into their hideout; it was Dana; his younger sister, who convinced him to help the other.
When they first met Altair he was wearing strange clothing he was severely wounded and was unconscious, Dana had insisted Alex carry the injured man to Ragland to be fixed up; she had a much kinder heart that Alex ever had and grudgingly he obeyed his sister, if only so they could get a few answers later.
Ragland had a hard time talking off the others outfit having seen nothing like it before, it seemed underneath every layer of cloth, there was a new weapon hiding underneath; a longsword a short sword, hidden throwing knives are just a sample of Altair's arsenal but what shocked the three of them, was the

His sword dropped from his hand as he clutched at the arrow half buried in his shoulder. He watched it all happen in slow motion, in utter disbelief. He'd not known the archers were anywhere near. Had had no inkling that there were archers at all. He gritted his teeth, fingers slick with blood, as he glared at the soldiers who moved closer weaving their weapons back and forth in menacing arcs.Credere e' Vivere6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The Assassin fought like a feral beast, winded or not, injured or not. He was a handful and that was no mistake. Estefano Reggio swore as his men died around him. The bastard was covered in blood and knives head to foot, seemingly pulling the shiny sleek blades out of thin air. If he'd not known better Estefano would have said the Assassin employed magic. But how magical was a man who stumbled and bled and gasped with every stroke? He was mortal. And this day of Christmas he would di

You are my precious flower,
Your hair as the petals of a blossom rose,
Smooth by each touch of a strain,
Your gown as the color of ivy,
Surrounding your fine skin,
Your body as of a lovely stem,
Slender with curves,
Fragile by these rough hands of mine.
Your voice is the calling of the forest,
Attracting whom you wish to desire,
Your spirit is the Earth's internal growth,
Alive and free from no boundaries,
Your scent is the essence of sweet and spice,
Arousing my inner sensations,
Pleasing to my inner soul.
I yearn for you,
My precious flower,
That shall forever be within these hands of mine.

Sixteen watched Desmond with sharp eyes, slapping a grin onto his face.
"If you hurry, you might back it back in time for Lucy's funeral."
The words slipped out. Sixteen didn't mean to say it; who knew what might drive Desmond over the edge?
Apparently, it was this. The Assassin fell to the ground, head bent and hand clenched into a fist.
"Lucy," he muttered desperately. "Oh God... I'm so sorry. It wasn't me. It wasn't me."

Sixteen tilted his head, stared down at him curiously. Was this what it was like...? Sorrow?
"It was that voice... Juno! She took hold of me! She made me..."
Sixteen knelt down. "Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you knew." He'd meant for it to sound genuine, he really had, but it came out sarcastic. Why did he always have to do that?
Desmond slowly raised his head, tears streaking his cheeks. Sixteen stood, surprised at the fire in the other man's eyes. What was he playing at?

Desmond Miles, 25, had finally escaped his captors at Abstergo. It was only possible thanks to Lucy, whom he was currently following as they ran through the sterile hallways. The escape seemed to be going smoothly. Nothing happened; no one caught sight of them as Lucy and Desmond raced to the nearest, unguarded exit. It was almost too effortless, too perfect. Almost.
Warren Vidic had somehow known the Assassin and the would-be-Assassin would be exiting through the parking lot. Dear Dr. Vidic had ordered many of his guards to swarm the parking lot at the first sight of anyone trying to escape. A matter of seconds after Lucy and Desmond stepped into the parking lot, it was teeming with Templars. At some point during the confusion and mayhem of the fight, Desmond was separated from Lucy. He figured that if he was able to get away, Lucy should have too. Only problem was, Desmond had no idea where she would have gone.

Altair frowned, sitting in the chair reading a newspaper. He liked the funnies.

Apparently, Ezio was lactose-intolerant. "STOP!" Ezio cried. "I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS..."
"LAC- THE FRIGGIN'-TOSE INTOLERANT!" Alex screamed, drops of sweat poured. He couldn't take it anymore. His left arm transformed into his favorite weapon: The blade. Mercer grabbed the doorknob and, with his left arm, cut through the door. Ezio screamed, dropping the magazine he was reading. Alex grabbed Ezio by his neck and threw him across the room. Ezio skidded on his arm and laid still for a moment.
"You forgot these." Alex said, tossing Ezio's pants to him. The pants landed on Altair's instead. The assassin froze and slowly took the pants off his head. "Gross." He muttered, throwing them on Ezio's head.
"Please put them back on, noone wants to see a naked assassin."

Mercer blinked and slumped into the soft couch. Desmond and Ezio sat beside him, watching the football game. Desmond looked at Alex and blinked.
"You okay?" He asked, patting Alex on the shoulder.
"No." Mercer said, the hood masking his eyes and his lips making the pouting gesture.
"Well, what's wrong?" Muffled Ezio with a mouthful of Doritos.
"I want to go outside." Alex groaned, covering his face with his hands. "I miss the feeling of the wind when I glide through the air-oh, sorry." Alex had stretched his arms out wide, smacking Ezio in the face by accident. Desmond stood up and walked over to the barred windows. He tugged at them and said,

Chapter 5- Reconnaissance
Ever since the incident with Altair's weapons, the younger man had been more at ease and seemed more relaxed now that every time Alex went out on reconnaissance; he would allow Altiar to accompany him (Much to Dana's surprise; after all it was odd that Alex was trusting the other enough to actually 'hang out' with him after all supposed 'dislike' Alex had had against the other) and would jump from building to building carrying the younger assassin.
The mental image alone about this scene was comical enough but imagine Altair's frightened face the first few times Alex jumped around with the man in his arms and it gets downright hilarious. Altiar had known of course, that Alex wasn't human and other than changing his hands into claws he didn't know the full extent of the others abilities but it seemed jumping really fucking high was to be added to that list.
Once Altair got used to Alex's way of getting around he relaxed and even started to en

The first man said the voice was gruff, authoritative and weary of the man sitting opposite him, the atmosphere in the room was tense, as if the two human beings barely tolerated each other.

A woman named Dana would come in and leave some sort of meal for Desmond. Sometimes, she would even stick around and carry out a conversation with him.

"At least that's what Alex thinks. Who really knows what's going on in the fucked up complex." She shook her head and shrugged. She had brought in a glass of what appeared to be water in with her. After a little bit of mindless chattering, Desmond decided to try to get some answers.

You mean the world to me.
He had going around in circles trying to figure out just what exactly Alex meant by that comment. Every time Desmond thought about it, his face felt a little warm. He had on more than one occasion told himself to stop acting like a flippant teenage schoolgirl. He had thought about asking Alex, but the man never seemed to be around. Even if he was, Desmond wasn't even sure if he could ask Alex about it. He was either completely over thinking it, or there was really something behind those words that he may never know. It seemed as though either way he'd never know and it would drive him insane. He actually let out a sigh of frustration one day while Dr. Ragland was checking up

The two Assassins heard the door to Connor's room open.
Footsteps came up to the closet.
Altair gave Ezio a, "You ruined everything you pathetic skunk bag," kind of look.
The closet opened, and the two hiding Assassins quickly relaxed when they saw that it was Malik.
"Oh, it's only Malik," said Altair.
"Yes," Ezio agreed, "He's not important."
Malik glared daggers at the two men. "I would be extremely important if it wasn't for my erm handicap!" Malik grabbed his injured arm to make his point. He continued; his voice full of bitterness. "I wouldn't have this HANDICAP if it wasn't for YOUR PATHETIC LEADERSHIP PROBLEMS!"

He raised his hands defensively to cover his face from incoming shrapnel of glass and wall. Before Desmond was able to lower his arms enough to see the assailant's face, the hooded man pinned Desmond to the far wall with incredible speed. Desmond was thankful that only the coffee table had been a victim of the man's tirade. The impact knocked the breath out of Desmond, causing him to instinctively gasp for air. He was unfortunately denied his need, as a hand was closed around Desmond's throat.

"Sir!" A young Blackwatch officer strode into the dimly lit office "We have a report from Central park, it seems the tip off was correct, the second target was in the van...however Zeus intervened and he completely annihilated the strike team and escaped with the assassin, we don't know where they are now" The solider said softly.
"...I see...so it seems Zeus is following this man...what is that thing thinking? Tailing and rescuing a bunch of humans like that?" He mumbled to himself; he couldn't comprehend Zeus's actions; he had never cared before about taking a human life if it wasn't connected to him personally, so what made Altair so different? Maybe that old fool of a doctor had a point when he said Zeus wasn't completely empty of morals.

Sighing softly the Arabian male slid out of bed; he was wearing practically nothing but the assassin didn't seem to mind; the curtains were drawn and it was dark in the room you could barely see the outline of the furniture the only light coming from the glow of the digital clock next to his bed told him it was 4:45am.

The quaint little establishment had been apparently located in an 'infected zone'. What the area could have been infected with was beyond Desmond. He just knew he was out of a job because of it. He was currently watching the news to see if there was any update on this 'infection'. Unfortunately, the cheery newscasters seemed to be talking about everything but the contamination. Frustrated by the lack of information, he turned the TV off. He sighed, got up and moved toward the apartment's windows to see the world below. There was chaos in the streets, something he had become accustom to in these past few days. The amount of chaos, however, was something that was starting to worry him.
