Chapter 5 Blood and Family
Altair didn't like this, the house was far too quiet; maybe he was being a tad paranoid but he was sure if Heller was asleep he'd hear the bed creak or him breathing or snoring or SOMETHING! But it was just so...silent.
He'd broken into the man's house easily enough, slipping in through the back door, he was great at picking locks and doing it quietly and he'd slipped inside it was dark but Altair could see pretty well without help his master told him that his blood line had some sort of special gift he had dubbed 'eagle vision' he said that with it he had the ability to see through the veil of reality to see enemy from friend, to see truth from lies.
The silence unnerved him, nothing living was ever truly silent when they slept, no silence was a practised art, something that took skill and something you needed to be conscious and alert for, which really meant only one thing.
Heller was waiting for him, that was the only explanation.

"Is everything in place?" Randell asked from his desk as he looked at the reports in his hands before glancing up at Sargent Cross, who straightened up a little, his boots clicking together faintly as he did so as he was addressed, before he nodded sharply in response as his superior.
"Yes sir, the squads have already began setting up the pumps of bloodtox in the streets, there's some resistance from the hunters as some of the spots are near the hive areas, but we brought in some heavy artillery and tanks to keep them at bay, so far it seems to be effective at keeping them at a distance”
"Excellent, if you continue to have trouble send in some air support to keep the area clear, I'm ready to leak information to the media so it will be on the news, all I need now is confirmation from McMullen and Dr Vidic to begin; there's no way Mercer will give up this

"You should have stayed with the target! Because of this the assassin is now gone and Abstergo expect us to pick up the pieces!" Randell yelled at Cross from across his large desk, Cross himself didn't so much as flinch at the others rage, he stood there like he was made of stone strong and resolute.
"I have no excuses sir, once the assassin was within the compound and they strapped him to that machine, I figured they didn't need me any further I should have known better, that the assassin would escape and that Zeus would come after him" Cross said softly as he watched the General pace back and forth in agitation "What do we do now?"
"I don't know" Randell said sounding exasperated as he fell into his large chair with a sigh "According to the reports, Altair didn't have what Abstergo wanted and their other escapee Desmond Miles is now missing, we know he's within the city but other than that we have no clues... we have to suspect that Zeus

Chapter one: Transfers and Trouble.
He was always there on his own, in the very back of the class, as far away from people as possible, he never spoke to anyone unless it was a teacher, he never interacted with anyone, never trusted anyone and everyone was scared of him. The male always wore a hoodie on top of a leather jacket which probably helped with the almost menacing aura he gave out; he could feel their fear of the student in the class roll off his fellow classmates in waves; it had been like that since he had first come to New York, since he had first come to this school, the unspoken rule was clear.
Stay away from Alex Mercer.
Altair remembered yesterday when he'd first arrived at Abstergo college "Alright! Silence you novices!" Malik growled as he slammed a ruler onto the desk with his one arm in order to silence his home-room class; usually he'd do roll call an

"General, Capitan Cross has arrived" a Blackwatch Lieutenant said as he saluted, before moving to one side to let the man pass; Cross was a tall man and wrapped in thick black body armour, his face was worn and aged and he had streaks of grey in his hair, he looked to be in about his late thirties to early forties.
"Ah, Capitan come in" He said as the lieutenant closed the door behind the two, leaving them alone in the dim room "You should know that I wouldn't call you here if it wasn't an emergency, but we have a situation that I need you to take care of"
"Oh?" Cross enquired with a raised eyebrow; he had read the file about this particular case on the way into New York, about Mercer, but he didn't know the whole story, as of yet, or even what Randell wanted to be done, though he could probably guess.

Altair was almost relived to be out of the two and a half hour long Biology lecture; working, with Alex had been similar to drawing water out of stone! He was so difficult and the Arabian male swore it was for no other reason than to be a pain in his ass! Altair just sighed and rubbed his face in exasperation, thank god he only had to be paired with him in ONE class so far.
"...I suppose we will have to meet up to get this project done" Altair finally said as he half turned to look at Alex who had followed him out of the classroom; he was obviously not happy about this pair up either but he couldn't fault Altair's earlier logic, either they grit their teeth and worked together or they'd be stuck working with each other twice as long, and that's something Alex didn't want or need.

Breakfast is ready and if you don't get up you wont be able to get in the shower before all the hot water is used up, and you KNOW how Ezio like to primp up in the bathroom" He said with a snigger.
That made Altair crack a smile in amusement, knowing just how true that statement really was, before he nodded at that and yawned a bit "Thanks Desmond I'll be down in a minute" He said ruffling the younger male's hair absently as he grinned and ran off, no doubt to jump on Ezio in order to rouse him from bed.
Altair stretched a little and headed out of his room and across the hall to the bathroom smirking as he heard Ezio's strangled yelp down the hallway followed by Desmond's laughter and hurried footsteps down the stairs as Ezio began curs

Desmond wandered through the empty compound, his fingers gliding over the back of the couch as he made his way to Shaun’s abandoned desk. He wandered his amber eyes over the folders and papers that littered Shaun’s desk, ghosting his hand over them, trying to adsorb some comfort from the lost presence. He withdrew his hand sharply as if being burned, a tight clench of his jaw in ainxt. It was an uneasy feeling knowing he was the only one, in the now seemingly gigantic complex. He now wished he didn’t pester Lucy about wanting to get out of the building so often, he felt so small.

Altiar sighed as he tossed and turned around in his bed for the fifth time tonight; no matter what he wanted, it seemed his restless mind would not allow him to sleep. 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.
Altiar frowned a bit and started to pace around in his room; what was he going to do? There was no way he could face Alex, he wouldn't be able to look the man in the eye! Hell he could barely look at Dana right now without knowing that her brother was watching his every move; if he didn't know any better he'd say Alex's paranoia was rubbing off on him.
Ever since Alex kissed him he had been avoiding the other, and for good reason! He didn't know why

A loud sigh echoed through the room as a pair of dark, brown eyes slowly closed, heavy lids blinding the sight and making the light from the room fade a bit in intensity. The colored glass and the thick stone walls seems that were not enough to keep away the suffocating heat of the summer midday. He could feel the sweat oozing down his face from the top of his head, drops tracing down the outline of his face, brushing on his tanned skin. His hand let down the quill and fingers quickly ran through his wet short and black hair, the back of the palm wiping the sweat away from his forehead as the man inhaled deeply the hot air. The gray walls seemed now white from the light that shone inside, even if the windows would play harmonious hues all over the chamber that once was Al Mualim's bureau. Years passed since the Grand Master of the Assassins died, since the order was left behind in his hands and Altair's, since everything they thought will not be able to accomplish has com

Altair never realized just how complicated his past was until it took him an hour to explain it to his betrothed the month before their wedding.
3. Making History
As he held Kadar's dying head in his lap, Malik had the odd thought that the novice had never really made history.
Each wanted to best the other, and the clash of swords in the training ring of a slate eyed boy and a golden eyed child confirmed a rivalry that would last to the end of their days.
When he was turning his back on his Master's dead body, Altair could only think that now nothing could sadden him, and his soul was now unbreakable.
After a while of thinking he was seeing his brother's ghost, Malik began to think his obsession with maps was normal.

Chapter 9 The Assassins and the Mercers
"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.

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

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 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

Altair frowned as he clicked around on the computer, ever since his reading and writing had improved enough to be able to learn how to use the strange device, the Arabian man had been doing nothing but trying to find any sort of clue about the assassins; if they even existed still, or had they died out completely? Altair hoped for the world's sake, that this was not the case.
Things between him and Alex had been...strangely tense to say the least, and he had the feeling Alex was avoiding him for some unknown reason; he wondered if it was because of what had happened before? He secretly hoped not, after all he'd simply been angry at Alex's dismissal of him and his abilities as an assassin, but that didn't mean he held that anger; he had long since learned to let anger like that go as quickly as it had come.
Whatever was wrong with Alex, Altiar never had the chance to ask the older man about it because the other was either out, on his own or locked away in

A cough broke the silence of the dim room where two men sat opposite each other one behind a large desk his face shadowed as he smoked a cigar "I take it everything is going to plan?" 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.
"Naturally, after our startling discovery of that man, we are progressing swimmingly, now that we his assistance, very little can go wrong...and what about you? You have STILL failed to capture the assassin" The other voice spoke it was calm but a little strained, as if the man did too much work for his own good.

Alex opened his eyes to the sounds of water running nearby, he frowned a bit the sound of the water making his virus crawl it never did like the stuff though it was mandatory at times to keep himself clean. He sat up slowly and realized after a long moment that, for the first time in his life he had actually fallen asleep and he hadn't been disturbed by the voices in his head. "..." He frowned a bit confused; it had been months since he had slept, or even felt relaxed enough to have a nap.
Sitting up slowly he raked a hand through his hair with a sigh; it was eerie how relaxed and at ease he felt; was all this because Altair had helped him to relax? He almost smiled; the assassin, was defiantly a man of many talents.
He broke out of his thoughts when the door opened and Altair stepped out dressed in clean jeans and walked over to the wardrobe and pulled out one of Alex's shirts; it was a little big for him but he didn't mind that so much, beside

Days passed and turned into weeks, and Altair still found modern day life in the 21st century to be quite overwhelming; staying in Alex and Dana's apartment would still take a while for him to fully adjust to and get comfortable with modern day life. The first step was to, naturally get more comfortable with the language, while he had managed to hold up a conversation, Altair's English still had a long way to go, what was worse is Altiar couldn't read a single thing in English either.
"You can't read?" Dana had asked the third day Altair had been living there; she had noticed he; had been struggling to read words on the food and always asked what things where; which Alex found to be irritating as hell and tended to disappear for hours on end leaving Dana to deal with the confused Arabian assassin, eventually he admitted (and this was a hard thing for him to admit; after all he was meant to be an intelligent assassin, it was hard f

Memories were cropping back up, reminding Desmond of his wounds. He blearily opened his eyes a bit more, trying to get them to focus so he could find out where he was now. He immediately recognized his surroundings to be Saint Paul's Hospital. He knew there was only one explanation as to how he got there and it was sitting right next to Desmond. Alex was sitting in one of the waiting chairs he apparently grabbed from one of the waiting rooms. His arms and legs were both crossed and he still wore the angry façade Desmond had become used to.

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
