Connor was sweating and hooked to a machine, needles encasing him in the glass prison so if he moved an inch they would penetrate his tan skin. Outside he saw the prince laughing at him with an evil grin as he pulled out another prisoner. It was Raina who was gagged and blindfolded as she was thrown infront of the prince who laughed stomping on her ankle, breaking it as she let out a muffled scream of pain. "Nooo you sick bastard." he shouted then lunged forward as the needles plunged into his arms and chest before the prince snapped his fingers and the needles pushed into him as he howled in a pain of sharpness, blood squirting inside the cage.

"Gaah" he said jumping awake from his bed in a cold sweat. Jenko sat up from his slumber and licked the boy's face with his massive green tongue which was the size of Connor's face. "Easy boy." he said then looked out the window onto the rocky plateau the farm was located on. He jumped out of bed and made his way out of the metal house his sister and himself called home. The sun was barley rising over the forest to the east, giving the land a redish glow.

He turned to Jenko and hissed, his forked tongue flicking and Jenko rushed in for Connor's rifle. He brought it out putting the strap over Connor's neck then went to the house to wake up Raina. The lizard went to her room and licked her face, the green snot sticking to her cheek as he yipped happily like he was a small dog.

Connor sat on the edge of the plateau wondering how he would explain to his sister that she was royalty. He only knew because she had fallen the other day and the birthmark on her arm was shown when Connor put the bandage over the small cut. He only knew of it on the chance of him trying to learn of a way to figure out the prince no matter what and then killing all the siblings to secure a kingless nation and everyone starting a democracy.

The sun rose lazily over the horizon, casting crimson streams through sheer, moth-eaten curtains, and onto the floor. Cool air drifted in, sending the sweet smell of summer flowers dancing throughout the a small, metallic shelter. The morning was calm and serene.

That is, until a sticky, wet sensation smeared across Raina's cheek. Groaning in response she attempts to swat the creature away, knowing full well that the lizard had been given a direct order, and that he would not let her be until she had risen. Half-heartily she opened her eyes, stroking the yipping creature as he rested his massive head on her chest, and wiped the residue of his wake-up call from her face.
"Good morning to you too Jenko," she cooed as she sat up in her small cot, cradling her brother's beloved pet's large scaly head in her arms. With a tap on the nose she hands him the scraps left from the previous night's supper, and set him down. He eagerly scurried out of her room, returning to Connor with a his prize of a bone, not completely cleared of meat.
As she did every morning, she walked over to her window and slid open the curtains, gazing out onto the beauty of the day. Her brother Connor sat in the distance, Jenko quickly scampering across the earth to return to him. Though he was far from her sight, something about the way he sat, staring off into the distance pensively made her worry. He was after all, her best friend, and closest thing she ever had to true family.

After slipping into a yellow cotton dress, and tying her long white locks up into a braided maiden bun, she stepped out into the cool morning air. Carrying with her she had two cups of coffee as she made her way over to where he was seated. Delicately she lowered herself next to him and handed him one cup, and took a sip of hers as she examined the distraught look on his face. A moment passed as she placed the mug to her side and leaned back on her hands, being careful not put more pressure on her injured arm then necessarily. It had only been a small scrape, but Conner of course insisted caring for it, as he did every time she took a tumble. However, there was something different about him this morning, and she had the slightest feeling that it wasn't her injury that had him so worried.

"It's going to be a beautiful day," she sighed, glancing over at him from the corner of her eyes, "I think I'll go to the market. What about you?"

Connor sighed, his mind still rushing before he looked to his left and saw his large pet rushing towards him. The lizard knelled beside him and laid his head in his master's lap before numming on the bone, trying to get the remaining meat. Connor let out a small chuckle and rubbed the reptile's neck slowly and smiled remembering finding the small lizard at the age of six and it only being the size of a frog. He was so happy that he would be able to keep it instead of a dog like most children had.

He looked up and saw his sister motioning a cup of coffee and took sips and glanced at her before looking down thinking of her mark. It was the one he symbolized as evil where others thought of elegance and royalty. He stood up, as his pet lifted his head up. "A-alright just be careful alright. You're all I have left." he smiled a little then hugged her lightly. "I may go hunting, I'm not sure." he looked at the girl and only saw the toddler his mother had brought home that wonderful night and told him that he had a little sister. Raina was and still is the perfect woman, she was an elegant, calm, modest, and pure she could never harm a fly. Though, he had yet to meet a male, or even a female good enough for the goddess he called his sister.

He looked at the day and sighed stretching slightly. "I may go with you actually, it seems like a nice day actually." he said smiling and grabbed the gun off his back as to check the energy in the cartridge. "Alright looks full, I'm ready whenever you are." he said with a slight sigh at the end, his eyes glancing at her arm.

"I may go with you actually, it seems like a nice day actually...Alright looks full, I'm ready whenever you are."

As Connor agreed to come along a smile broke out across Raina's face, she loved market day, and she loved it more when Connor came along. Quickly she hopped up, brushing the grass from her dress and jumping a bit in glee. Though she was 19, at times she still acted quite childish.
"O goodie!" she exclaimed as she could barely contain her excitement. It took her no time to run back up to the house and grab her basket from inside the door. Before returning to where Connor was, she stopped at the apple tree and picked a dozen juicy, ripe yellow apples and placed them in her basket, which hung daintily off her arm. Then she returned to Connor, tugging on his arm, urging him up off the ground.
"I'm ready now!" With a smile she pulled a little coin purse from her pocket and pulled back the strings to reveal an extra 4 silver coins, along with the usual meager 7 gold coins and 4 coppers she made a week working on the Dairy Farm down the road, "I helped Mrs.Daillia bake some pies for the market, so she gave me a little extra. It's enough to get a nice bushel of those Soursops you like so much!"

The town that Raina and Connor reside in is quaint and old. On market days Raina makes to two hour trek to the neighboring town, but it's worth it. It's amazing to see how such a short distance can be so very different from what she is used to.
Her town is quiet, and everyone knows everyone. Children all grow up together, and everyone grows old together. It rests far enough away from the Castle City that the Prince's men aren't often seen, but neither is the Prince's money. For such a small poor town however, Raina has never been happier.
The neighboring town lies on the banks of a vast and raging river. Being a port city, it see's a lot of revenue. The buildings are all made from brick and stone, a far cry from the beautiful glass and iron buildings seen closer to Castle City, but much nicer than the shanties she has been living in. The streets are cobble stone, and on every corner is a tall, bright lamp post. What amazes Raina most, is the sheer number of people, especially on market day. It is one of her favorite days of the week. Even the walk is enjoyable, and she always brings something to hand out to anyone who crosses her path. Last week she picked beautiful lilies and handed them out to weary travelers on the road, today she has delicious apples.

With one final tug she pulls Connor up from the ground, laughing and spinning in the warmth of the sun. Her dress floats in the breeze as she skips over to the gate on the edge of the property and lifts herself up onto the railing, walking along the thin wooden plank, balancing herself with her arms stretched out. She has not a care in the world. All that's on her mind is the beauty of the day, the excitement of the trip, and the love she feels for her brother.

"Are you coming slowpoke?!" she calls out, a hint of laughter in her voice, "You too Jenko!" she coos to the massive creature.

Connor smiled, his sister's enthusiasm was always one of the things that would perk him up every time no matter the situation. There were few things that did make him want to move whenever he got into one of these moods and it was one along with Raina crying or Jenko wanting to play. It was just those simple things that made him feel like a child, a guardian, and a brother that would amp him up to the fullest extent.

Raina's comment about the soursap made him smile wider. "You can get something if you would prefer, you earned the money anyways." he said with a smile as he rushed back into the house to grab a jacket. He finally found the long black jacket and put it on, the coat which made a nice illusion that he was unarmed when he had it on since it concealed the large rifle sashed over his back.

Connor ran out of the house and shouted a hearty response. "I'm ready." he shouted and then proceeded to pick her up by the waist and spin her lightly as he laughed and sat her down, remembering her young self. "Come on Rainy lets go." he said almost in a giggle. He loved to call his sister rainy just for the sheer fun of it but lately he decided he needed to come up with a reason to call Raina that.

He started to walk beside the girl then hissed, signaling Jenko to come with them. Since his lizard didn't speak a lick of human Connor took it upon himself to translate for his pet. Connor's gaze went to the landscape watching the houses humbly set by the road as they were years upon years ago. He saw the small church he used to go to as a child but, after his parent's death he never returned out of bad memories.It was quaint and tiny but it looked freshly painted by the coat. It was wonderful.

The trio made it to the market and Connor sighed of relief as he looked at his sister. " Raina you can lead the way." he said with a smile awaiting his sister's response.

Raina and Connor entered through the large gates of town giggling and smiling, like they were 7 and 10 again. As they made their way through the streets to town square the smells of market day saturated the air with spices and the sweet scent of flowers. Vendors cheered and hollered, attempting to draw attention to their products as the people weaved through the traffic. Women in groups of two or three eagerly chatted with each other, catching up on the weekly gossip as they filled their baskets with breads and fruits. Men surveyed the merchandise available, stopping into shops and eating foods their wives wouldn't make for them. Children ran through legs, some swiping fruit as vendors turned away, and others offering to shine shoes.
Raina loved the small town life, though she had never been to a big city, she knew that there was no way you could get fresh fruits and fresh foods like this in Castle City. No, only the towns near the edge of the continent, away from hustle and bustle had this family feel to it.

" Raina you can lead the way."

"Alright" she agreed as she took Connors hand and weaved through the crowd. Not long after arriving a group of orphaned children ran up to her. There are five of them, and though they are a little dirty and barefoot they run up to her cheering and smiling.
"Hi there Miss Raina," a little boy says, blushing as he looks up at her.
"We missed you!" smiles a little girl as she tugs on the hem of Raina's dress.
"Well hi to you guys too!" she replies, kneeling down to the children's level, "I have a surprise for you all today!"
"Oooh what is it?" another asks, attempting to peer into her basket.
"I wanna see tooo!" whines another.
With a smile she sets the basket down and watches the children's face light up as they grab for the apples. Each of them begins eating the juicy fruit, and stowing away the extras in their pockets. Then she reaches into her purse and hands each of them a gold coin, as she does every week.
"Now don't spend it all in one place, and you know that I want you to buy food with this right?"
They all smile and hug her, "Thank you Miss Raina!" before they run off, each holding as many apples as they can. She simply stands and watches them for a moment, before the hustle and bustle of the market snaps her out of her trance.
"I wish I could do more for them..." she sighs under her breath as she slips her coin purse back into her pocket. Turning to her brother she smiles, "Alright ready to shop?"
In no time she her basket is filled with the ingredients she can't get from the farm. A hunter even promised to deliver a whole horned boar to the farm in exchange for some fruit from her trees. The people all loved her, and everyone she spoke with couldn't help but smile.
After spending two hours shopping the trio sit on the edge of a fountain. An open bag of Soursop fruit sit next to Connor, with Raina on the other side, making faces as she bites down into the tart fruit and swinging her feet back and forth from the high perch.

He made his way through the old streets noticing how full of life they were. The air was thick with the smell of different foods and the chatter of voices, thinking back Dante relised it must have been market day, this brought back some fond memories of his childhood but instead of reliving these nostalgia moments he focussed his mind on relieving himself of his hunger first. As he made his way down to the town square he noticed the villagers staring at him, changing from their loud conversations to hushed whispers and also giving him a wide birth as they walked past him. He began to think coming back was a bad idea, he didn't think he'd make this much of a commotion, he'd surely be caught by the authority if he didn't blend in better but for now he couldn't do anything about that.

When he found himself at the market, the sight of how busy it was brought a smile to his face as he had missed his old life when he didn't have a care in the world. As he walked from stall to stall he was shocked at how very little the village people had changed, the fisherman and his son still wore their floppy hats and wellington boots, the baker and his wife were still as portly and jolly as they had been four years ago, laughing and chatting to the many buyers that fancied their bread and cakes; he used to love their cakes when he was little and would often spend what ever savings he had on them to which he would share out but always kept the largest bit to himself. His mouth began to water uncontrollably as the smell drafted up from the cakes to his nostrils, his stomache growled in approval as he walked to the stall hands searching his pocketts for what ever money thet could find, while the baker turned around to him still smiling. "Why 'ello there, care to buy something?" The man asked in that booming voice of his, causing Dante to search more frantically but still he found nothing he could use as currency. Disheartend he shook his head at the man sighing. "No nothing today but can I ask do a Connor and Raina Ruyto still live on a farm nearby?"
"Why yes they do, infact they should be here any moment now if they aren't already." The man replied before turning to another customer that had nudged their way past Dante.

After hearing this bit of information he decided to just walk around the market to search for them. He wasn't sure if he'd recognise them or if they'd even remember him after practically dissapearing for four years without keeping contact with them but he was still determined to find them, after all his family had moved to one of the cities closer to the castle to avoid having to work in one of the power plants. As the time passed on he decided it'd be better to sit down and rest his legs, they were practically screaming at him at this point, as he sat down on a rather well kept bench, he placed his rifle down to side of him as he scanned the area for his old friends. After seeing countless faces both familiar and unfamiliar he began to grow tired as none of them even remotelly looked like them, somthing did catch his eyes though a bunch of street urchins were crowding around this girl, he couldn't see her face from where he was sitting but he could see her white locks something that caused him to gain some interest, it was rare outside the royals to possess white hair and it was this fact that caused his father to boast that there was some royal blood in his family tree down the line.

He watched as the kids ran off from the stranger clutching as much fruit as their little hands would allow, he chuckled softly at their antics. As he was busy watching the children that he failed to notice one of them trying to make off with his gun, this failed when he felt the strap to his side being tugged. He faced the young boy and quickly grabbed the his arm firmly but not so firmly so he'd hurt the boy. "Let go, I was only looking." The boy struggled under his grip trying to break free so he could obviously run and hide from the soldier.
"Not so fast, I'll let you go if you tell me something first." The ex military stated keeping his grip on the boy.
"What?" The urchin asked his face now growing fearful as he realised he wasn't going to break the grip.
"Have you seen Connor or Raina Ruyto anywhere?" He queried, eager to know.
"Yeah, yeah miss Raina was handing out fruit to us." He replied. "Now get off me!"

As soon as the boy had said that he had let go, causing him to fling himself onto the floor but the urchin quickly sprang up and made a dash for it. Shaking his head while chuckling to himself, he began his search again mentally kicking himself for not recognising her before. His search lasted for a good two hours before he finally spotted them sitting on the towns fountain, he slowly walked towards them suddenly being very aware of his heart racing away as his old feelings for the two started to bubble up. He was shocked at how much Raina had grown up, he had still expected to see that little girl he had grown up with always shadowing her older brother but now she was a young woman and a rather attractive one at that. Connor on the other hand was still that handsome lad he had befriended all those years ago, he was still as tall and slim as before but there was something about him that was different something Dante couldn't quite put his finger on. "Well I'm home." He said, his voice a little shakey, dreading the thought that they might not remember who he was.

Connor smiled watching his sister being charitable and bubbly to everyone she talked too. This made Connor's work a bit more difficult esspecialy when she started to talk to an old woman her grandson started to walk towards them with the same look the sniper had seen on so many other faces. Connor took a few steps out of earshot and put his hand on the boy's chest and glared. "You aren't going to talk to her alright?" he said in an almost bored tone but every male knew he was dead serious. The boy nodded and ran away leaving a smirk on Connor's face as he went back to his sister before she even noticed.

After the little shopping day he settled happily by the fountain and took out a fruit and his blade the size of his forearm and started to cut it into chunks. He stabbed a chunk with the knife and then took it up to his mouth where his think tongue wrapped around it and pulled it into his mouth.

He ate happily for a few minutes, enjoying the warm sun as Jenko rested by his heels. He then heard a familiar voice and looked up from his fruit to see that it was infact Dante. "Dante, I haven't seen you in ages. How you been?" he said enthusiastically, amazed to see his friend after the years apart with no contact.

"Well I'm home." Raina hears from over her right shoulder. The voice is deep, but pangs her with nostalgia.
"Who is it brother..." she begins as she turns, peering through the glistening drops of water spewing from the cherub perched on the top of the fountain. Her gaze falls on a tall, muscular man donned in Royal Red. Carrying with him he has a large rifle, military issue. What strikes her the most is the snow white hair, and the hard gaze. Recognition strikes her face, though the man before her is a far cry from the boy she last saw four years ago, she can't help but smile and spring from the fountain, landing daintily on her toes. Her yellow dress catches the air, revealing a little more of her pale, slender legs as she rushes over to him.
With a strong leap she throws her arms around the man, burying her face in his neck as her feet hang inches off the ground.
"Dante, I haven't seen you in ages. How you been?"
"Dante, You're back!" she giggles in her child-like tone, as she lowers herself down however, the look on her face changes. She stares at him for a moment, crossing her arms and pushing her bottom lip out. As she looks up her brow furrows, and a little wrinkle forms across the bridge of her nose.
"Dante O'Neill you better have a very good excuse as to why you have worried me so much! Four years! You just disappeared without so much as a goodbye! Not even a letter!"
Though she seemed upset, there was no way she could stay mad for long. Dante was as much a member of her family as Connor. The military attire didn't bother her, but the look his eyes did...Yes this was the same Dante she remembered, though his was fairly leaner back then. Now his muscles almost bulged through his fatigues, and his face looked...harder than before. His eyes told the story she knew he wouldn't tell, it was the look of a man who had seen death. Walk on his path, knocked on his door, and shook his hand.

The reaction he had recieved off the two completely caught him off guard and he had almost fallen over backwards as his old friend launched herself at him. He was only just able to catch her as she latched onto him, when she buried her face into his neck he suddenly began hugging her tightly, her scent filling his nostrils as he breathed in deeply. "Dante, I haven't seen you in ages. How you been?" Connor asked, his voice was almost alien to the ex-soldier it didn't sound like the young lad he once knew, after a small pause he sighed. "Surviving I guess." This was technically true with everything that had gone in his life but he didn't feel comfortable with speaking about his past infront of these two at the moment, he couldn't just dump four years of crap on them after only just seeing them for a few moments. Dante your back! Raina boomed, giggling a rather school girl giggle, lowering herself down from their embrace. Her face changed from one of childish joy to that of a scornful frown. "Dante O'Neill you better have a very good excuse as to why you have worried me so much! Four years! You just disappeared without so much as a goodbye! Not even a letter!" She scolded him before her features softened up.

Dante sighed again, facing away from her gaze. "I'm sorry but there wasn't much chance to on the front lines as for not saying goodbye...." He paused slightly to look up at her. "But it was hard enough leaving home despite how much I wanted to become a soldier." He smiled weakly before picking her up again and spinning around with her, his smile brightening as all the past memories began to clog his mind. "But I'm here now and I don't think I'll be leaving anytime soon." He let her down softly, turning towards Connor and embracing him in a hug although it was rather awkward. "So what about you, has anything happened while I've been gone?" He queried while sitting down next to his friend completely oblivious to the large lizard on the other side till it was staring him in the face. "What the hell is this thing?"

Connor chuckled a little as he watched his sister happily jump onto Dante. She was so childish sometimes, it was nice to watch her like this. It warmed him up a little. "Good, good at least your alive." he said with the cocky smirk he usually wore on his face. He leaned back on the fountain and watched as Dante questioned about his pet.

"This would be the little lizard I got around the time you left. He grew quite quickly and no he's more of uh, horse..." he then turned to Jenko and his forked tongue showed to slip from his mouth and hiss and Jenko jumped around yipping like a pup. "... though he's more like a puppy." he said happily then rubbed the back of his pet's neck.

He intentionally avoided talking about his parent's on the ground of him not wanting to bum Dante out when he first get's back. There was also the manner of Raina and her being queen. Would he believe him, or would he just laugh and think he was making up stories?

Rob was still running, but stomps to a halt when he hears familiar voices. He rounded into the square and spots Raina. He can't let a lady see him like this. He wiped his face swiftly with the back of his hand and patted shirt down. "C'mere Buddy" as the goat was getting behind him. He saw the three reconnecting, but only Connor was free. He noticed the giant lizard there. "Hey, is your snake gonna be a problem with my goat?" He shook his hand. "How you doing lizard boy? What you need fixed? Whoa, is that Dante? Don't let me interrupt your conversation, I wanna hear why he just dropped out of here four years ago!" He went to lay down , the walk here was pretty long. He swung the FAMAS from his back and onto his chest because its not to comfortable to lay on assault rifles. He turned his head and sees Buddy over by the hugging pair. "No buddy don't eat that!" Too late, Rob was only half up when Buddy had started. Buddy had smelled something sweet and he went to Raina and now the pygmy goat had wandered to her leg and was licking her leg and chewing her dress.

"we both missed you dearly," Raina said with a smile as she took Dante's hand. Though it had been so long since they had seen each other he was like family to her. With a determined tap of her food she beamed up at the boys.
"Alright well, it sounds like I have quiet a dinner to make tonight!" As she giggled, swinging her basket in front of her, she felt a tug on the hem of her dress. Looking down she saw the cutest little goat. She set her basket down and knelt on the ground in front of him, though her dress raised slightly as the goat still had it in it's mouth. With one hand she rubbed the animal between the horns, cooing sweet things as she removed her now soggy dress from his jaws.
"I recognize you!" she smiled as she picked up the little goat and glanced around for Rob. As she stood she watched him approach and waved.
"I do believe this belongs to you," she giggled as she handed him over, then reaching out and giving Rob a hug as well. If there was one thing Raina had in her life, it was protection and love. Though she would never ask them to do so, she knew that these men would protect her with their very lives. Quietly she thanked the gods for never having to feel alone.
"Who's coming over for dinner?" she asked as she skipped ahead of the group, "It's going to be delicious!"

Rob's face turned red and he ran his hand through his hair and down his neck. He saw Raina kneel and the dress rise because of Buddy. His eyes opened wide and a small sense of pride formed. "That's my goat...". She hugged him, and her height(or lack thereof) startled him-it always does-her only coming to his shoulder. When she skipped off he observed her backside(multiple reasons for that of course) and he noticed something on her dress. It was a black hand-print. He looked down at his hands. It was him. His hands were covered in oil from wiping his hair, and no doubtingly from his line of work. He let a soft chuckle and turned to the guys with his finger over his lips. "Shhhh" Rob jumped at the invitation for food. "Its like you guys never feed me." He set Buddy down after Raina. "Run Buddy, run!" and soon caught up with his goat.

As soon as she gripped his hand, the ex-soldier could instantly feel his heart rate increasing, he was already starting to some what feel like his old self... not much but some. He squeezed her hand gently before she pulled it away, tapping the basket she was holding that childish smile of hers beaming up towards the two. "Alright well, it sounds like I have quiet a dinner to make tonight!" His stomache began to growl as the D word hit his ears and the all too familiar feeling flooded back to him but his attention was soon drawn towards a small goat chewing on the girls dress, causing a slight grin on his face. The owner of the goat soon arrived and began chatting away to Connor as Dante simply examined the newcomer who looked vaguely familiar to him. He couldn't quite put a name to the large, scruffy boy but there was something about him that screamed "You know me!" Shit it's erm Bob? Rob? Something like that when did he become bloody huge? He thought amused, the last time he saw him he was helping him with target practice although why he asked him and not Connor was a mystery, the slimmer child was a much better shot than he was. He simply watched as Raina and Bob... Or Rob shared pleasantries and a hug, something that Dante noticed hadn't changed about Raina always friendly no matter who it was.

"Who's coming over for dinner?" she asked as she skipped ahead of the group, "It's going to be delicious!" He was about to shout out that he was up for some dinner until he noticed a black hand print on her backside. He looked around to see the giant with a finger to his lips, causing a low chuckle from the ex-soldier but this turned into a low growl as he noticed where the lad's eyes were placed. He slugged after the girl placing himself next to Connor, turning his head to whisper to him. "It's great to see it really is but later I need to speak to you about something."

Connor watched as Robert walked over to their small group with his goat. He rolled his eyes and hissed at the boy when he referred to his beloved pet as a snake. "He's a lizard not a snake dumbass and a lizard that could eat you and your little walking trash compactor too." he smirked and leaned back feeling cocky about himself today. But, all soon enough his cockiness faded when his eyes met Raina's covered arm. It covered her mark which was the only reason they didn't know and she was still humble and peasant-like. He had made her wear clothes that covered her upper arm ever since she was brought home for the thought of her being looked by a boy for the sleeveless shirt. This made him think if his parents knew. He knew that mother would often dress her when they would go to church and she would have known about the mark on her arm.
He had no time to ponder as Dante walked up to him and whispered. "It's great to see it really is but later I need to speak to you about something.", listening Connor nodded and stood up straight. "As do I my friend." he said in a proud manner and looked at the sky. The sun had already started to set and the time they needed to get home was usually around five. "Raina, I think we should start on home. Dante we would be pleased to have you over and Rob I guess you can come too." he smirked and rubbed his pet's neck, stroking it softly.

Raina pranced joyously ahead of the group of men, still unaware of the print on her backside, spinning to face them with her basket swinging behind her. A wide grin spread across her face.
"Of course! she cheered, urging the group forward with a curled finger,"The more men the merrier," she chirped innocently. Her naive comment caused some side glances from a couple of passing elderly women, but she paid them no attention. Spinning on her toes once more she looked back at the group, "Let's go slow-pokes! Last one there has to do the dishes!"
With a child-like grin she was off.
Though she isn't strong or intimidating, she is quite fast. Her slender legs carry her swiftly from the cobblestone of the city onto the dirt road. A checkered hanker chief held all of her fresh foods in her basket, which moved with her smoothly. When she ran, it was graceful almost like a dance. Her white hair began falling from it's pins, letting the long braids tumble behind her. Her smooth, pale skin reflected the sun's warm glow. Raina was as graceful and delicate as a porcelain doll, though just as fragile.
She came to a startling halt as her foot caught on a tree root as they passed through the outskirts of the woods just outside her home. All at once she was tumbling head over heels into the dirt.
"Oh no..." she whined, "If brother sees that I've hurt myself again... he won't let me travel alone anymore..." she says as she grips her scraped knee. The hem of her dress is ragged and torn, and one sleeve seems to have ripped almost completely off. Quickly she ties a knot over her shoulder and brushes the mess as much as she can from her dress. The spill took quite a toll, leaving her covered in a sheen of dust and smeared with blood on her knee and shoulder. Her hair collected a few sticks and leaves, her braids coming undone, spilling waves down her back.
As the boys catch up to her she is kneeling on her hands and knees collecting the fruits and vegetables that spilled from her basket.
With a blush she sits in the dirt and waves, "...hey guys....you'll never guess what happened...hehe"

Rob didn't like Connor's hostility but he was used to it. As she was turning, he stole an apple from the basket. "Hey, Bud, here," and he dropped the apple down for his goat. He thought of Dante's red coat. Royal red."Crap." He pulled the collar of his shirt down. It was still there. Hopefully Dante didn't see his GIGN tattoo. "and squash the bloody rebel". He hoped he'd understand. Then Raina took off running. Rob thought back to when they used to run through the woods. Those were good times. He ran after her, but things were different this time. He couldn't keep up with her, and his rifle clanging against his back brought back even worse times. But when he saw her stumble he knew one thing hadn't changed. She was still clumsy as she was then.. "Raina!" He remembers how she'd fall and he stop her, but that was when they were at the same pace. He ran to the tripped lady. He sprinted through the woods, but kicked up a rock causing him to trip as well. But this wasn't his first rodeo, he rolled into the rest of the fall, and soon got back up. His arm was scraped up a bit. "Maudite." He didn't know when he stumbled it rustled his shirt and the corner of his tattoo was showing. He arrived when she muttered "If my brother see's that I've hurt myself again... he won't let me travel alone anymore..."
He sighed. "Hurt yourself again? You're brother doesn't have to know" and he took out his blue handkerchief-the only clean thing about him-and wiped away the blood and dirt from her. He brushed the debris out of her hair as she picked up her fruit.
"No buddy!" and he shooed away his goat from eating Raina's produce, although he already fed him some of it before. As Conner comes near he looked up."...hey guys...you'll never guess what happened...hehe"After Raina said that, Rob winked and grinned. He knew it would anger the protective Conner, and the already upset Dante. But he didn't mind. He thought it was pretty funny. He wasn't afraid of Conner. "You ever teach your sister how to walk in the woods?" with a smile.

Grinning widely, he slapped his old friend on the back as a playful sign to move out. "Christ, I haven't eaten anything in two days." He laughed as he followed Raina and Rob as they ran on ahead, chuckling to himself at the sight of those two acting so childish, it had been a long time since he had this kind of company. He was thinking of running after them himself but something within him, his sense of pride maybe stopped him, much to his annoyance. The walk down the road was pleasent as the sun began to cast an orange glow across the fields, the only negative thing that he could think of was the rather unnerving stare from the giant lizard that stayed by Connor's side. They soon caught up with the two, he noticed both Raina and the 'giant' were grinning at the two. "...hey guys...you'll never guess what happened...hehe The dainty little girl called out to which Rob's grin turned cocky and winked at them, causing the ex-soldier to tense up, he knew that Rob was only joking but it still caused a fire to burn up within him and without him realising his hands had moved towards his pistol that his father had given him before he had left.

When he finally realised what he was doing he quickly placed is hands into his pockets. His eyes though were soon drawn to a blue handkerchief that the mechanic was holding, there was somethingabout the colour that made him think he had seen it before but he couldn't quite but he couldn't quite recall from where he had. He shook this thought from his head and focussed on the here and now, he noticed that Raina's hair was a mess when it had been perfect a few moments ago and he noticed a twig had made it's home in her white locks to which he approached her, smiling and pulled it out gently before he carried on walking. "So what can we expect for dinner then?" He called from over his shoulder.

Connor ran after the others with a smile, well less of a run but more of which he just walking slightly faster. He caught up with the rest of the group. He saw his sister on the ground and quickly picked up his pace as his pet bounded behind seeing the situation. The scene appeared to be that Raina had fallen which was normal but it was still upsetting for him to see her hurt. It curled his blood and he rushed forward and grabbed his sister by her hips, standing her straight as he looked her over.

"Raina, are you alright?" he said then hugged her. "Please be more careful, I worry too much about you." he then ran his fingers through her hair to untangle it slightly. He wanted her to be safe and sound but he knew she was a klutz so he realy didn't blame his sister.

Pride welled up inside Raina as the boys all came to her aid. Though she had only taken a small tumble, the worry in their eyes was all true. The worst thing she ever had to fear in her life, was her own two feet failing her. After Rob tied up her wound, and Connor hoisted her up off the ground she smiled at the boys, accepting the basket from Rob as he snagged the last of the produce from the goats reach.
"Thanks guys, I'm alright really. Just a little scratch."
"So what can we expect for dinner then?" Dante called out to her as he mosied on past. He put on a tough facade for the others, but she knows he has quite an emotional side. Her only fear is that the war drove him to bury those emotions... She felt there was some tension between him and Rob, he gave off the slightest air of mistrust. Pushing the thought aside she took her brother's hand and called out up to him.
"I was thinking horned boar stew. I baked some bread yesterday, there should be enough left for all of us."

It didn't take long for the group to arrive at the small metal shack the siblings shared. The scorch marks from the reminiscent of the family cabin still left a ring of dirt around the shack. It had been a couple of years since the troops swept through the town, burning homes to the ground and taking women and children. The only reason Raina survived was Connor. Had he not taken her into the woods to hide her, she would have fallen to the same awful fate as her mother.
It seemed like second nature to Raina as she grazed the two wooden markers, driven into the earth by Connor a mere day after the attack, with her fingertips as she skipped past them. Though she missed them dearly, she tried not to let the memories of her parent's love become tainted with hate and grief. As the boys stopped by the pit she ran into the house, lingering in the doorway only for a moment as she called out to them.
"Connor, Rob, Dante! Will you please start a fire for me, this pig is too big to cook indoors," she said as she pointed to the wrapped mass on their doorstep. As promised, the vendor from the market delivered it right to their home, "And then go ahead and roll this thing over there and start prepping it for me...you know I hate all that blood and stuff."
Without waiting for a response she skipped into the kitchen, placing the basket on the counter as she pulled out her knife. As she sliced up the vegetables for the stew she watched the men work through the window, smiling at the thought of once again feeding a full house of people.

Rob laughed at Connor's worry "Please be more careful, I worry too much about you." and replied the worried brother with "Well hey, if it means that much to ya, I can walk around with her" with another grin like he had given before. After hearing the menu, Rob got real excited. He's getting fed! Buddy could have a bit of bread. At Raina's orders he ran down to the pit. The others started to pull out lighters, matches and other ways. "Hah. Matches. Oh you guys dropped out or something? Let me show you how its done. You might wanna get out of the way." And without hesitation he pulled small metallic orbs out of a pouch from his pack. With the small marble sized devices he pushed down a button the size of a pin. A red light went on-it was activated. "Fire in the hole!" and he threw it to the kindling. A fireball and a thud. Fire! With another smile "Well there's my contribution. You two have fun now" Him and Buddy played around while they're cooking. They go inside and eat. Rob tore a chunk of bread and threw it on the ground. "ey bud. venu" While they were eating Dante brought up "Well, when I left for the Royals" a fire is lit inside Rob. He stands up, and Raina puts her hand on his shoulder "Rob its...." He grabbed her hand-it was soft and reminded him of when his mother would hold his hand at the food market. He turned around and placed her hand with her other. "No, this is something I have to do." He turned back and faces Dante. He started to unbutton his shirt and pulled it aside to show a GIGN tattoo. "Tu es un cochon régalien? Tu battaile comme un raton! T'essuyé te derrier et t'assied."(You're a royal pig? You battle like a rat! Wipe your ass and sit down." Dante shouted back "I can't believe it, you were a piece of shit rebel?" With that Rob replied "Oui, et tu joues avec te couilles tout le jour?"(Yes, and you play with your small balls all day?) "Sorry Raina for the disturbance. I'll be leaving for the palace to fix some trucks for them. Dante, lets take this outside and not bother this lady anymore-I have something to show you." Rob put his pack down and took out a large blue rag and a helmet. He wrapped the rag around his neck and then put the helmet on his head to go with the scarf. In normal GIGN uniform he swings around the FAMAS "Look familiar?"
Another nerve is struck in Dante. "You rebel mutt!" and he backhanded Rob. Rob with his helmet didn't feel much of anything. He took off his helmet and put it on the ground in front of Buddy. Buddy starts jumping around and was all giddy. Rob poured some grain from the pouch into the helmet-now Buddy's food bowl. He unwrapped the scarf and covered Buddy with it-a blanket. He turned back to Dante who was still going. "So you went off to be a rebel, now you're going to the royals? You stupid or something kid? Why do you need all this money? Now you're kissing the prince's feet now?" and swung at Rob. Rob's rebel training hit and he quickly countered it"I'm not a fucking kid!" He slid his arm under Dante's armpit and reached behind and grabbing his other arm and brought him to the ground "T'árret! C'est le GIGN!" After tackling him, he helped him up from the ground. "You wanna know why I'm a filthy rebel? You wanna know why I need all this money? Well besides soap being expensive in this economy-"
He sat down to tell him a story. "About a year after you left I was in my father's workshop. I heard my dad shout "No!" and a gun shot. He had killed a royal. The other guards would have none of this. They tazed him, then cuffed both of my parents. I chased after their truck-it was going real slow, was a real junker piece 'o shit-I jumped to the back where the guards were. In anger I striked out to the guards but they kicked me down 'Get out of here boy!' with tears in my eyes and anger in my heart I ran back to the farm. Buddy was still there"he rubbed his goats ears"and I built something with that fury-that right there"and he points to some gawdy looking thing"don't touch that. It's a trap I made. I planned on making hundreds to plant infront of our farm, to protect Raina and Connor, because I knew you could't you weren't there. They took my parents into slavery. I need this money. I can buy them out" Tears are dwelling in Rob's eyes now. he covers his face with his hand, but his right eye was still exposed. "I just want my mom...." This caught Dante by surprise. "Whatever." and with that he headed to his car. It was a real nice one-he pimped it out. he's an engineer, that's what he does. He loads Buddy in his seat for the hour drive. As he drives out he feels a bit bad for leaving like that but it must be done.

After the hour drive he arrived at the palace. He'd heard great things about it, but never pictured it to be this grand. He came around to the garage where a guard was sitting. "I'm Rob, I'm here to fix the trucks." The guard got up from his nap and his playboy. "Thanks, now I don't gotta sit here all day! Have fun!" and he went for some privacy. Rob put down his tools and set to work. While he was fixing the truck he heard some footsteps. He pulled himself from the truck to the stranger. He panned up from her feet and up her smooth graceful legs. He was met by a beautiful face. With a dainty giggle "What are you doing?" He rose up, and was surprised by her height(or lack thereof). "I'm Rob" He looked down back at the truck. "Well why don't I show you." He went to the ground and patted next to him. She went down with him and he explained the engine, the transmission-the whole works. Even showed her how to fix them and what to alter. When they were done he noticed some grease had fallen on her forehead. "Buddy. venir. tu peux passe un chiffon pour nos dame?"(Buddy. Come. Can you pass a cloth for our lady?" Buddy returned. "Merci." He gently wiped her forehead with the cloth. She was gorgeous. He felt his empty stomach. He hadn't eaten breakfast and lunch was rolling around. "You wanna have lunch?" she accepted and then went off to eat. As they were eating he kept looking into her eyes. My god, he hadn't seen anyone like this before. While they were eating he took her hands. "Soo... How about I clean up a bit and come down here later on?" He noticed the bit of confusion. "I like you." he held up their hands "I want to take you out on a date." he referred to their hands again "so we can do this and maybe a bit more." As they were holding hands another girl came in. Who was she? They looked the same. Great. Twins! She was upset though. "Whats going on?" Before Rob could present himself or do anything, he was dragged out the door by this small girl and his goat followed. That was odd. He drove home to clean up for his date. He sighed deeply. His shirt was nice when it was clean, but he had jeans on. He had to find a pair of pants to wear. He held his head down and dreaded having to go back to Dante and Connor after the fight, but he had to get over it. He slugged over to Dante. "Do you have a pair of pants I can wear?"

The following morning Raina woke to an unfamiliar smell lingering in the air, and the faint sound of cries in the distance. As she rolled out of bed and peeked out the window she noticed a warm red above the clouds. At first she turned back to her bed, ready to return to sleep, the however, she realized what it was she was smelling. It was familiar, and brought back memories of the worst day of her life. It was smoke, and the screams were that of the townspeople, some crying for help...other shrieking in fear..in pain. Without even slipping on her shoes she ran to where Connor lay sleeping and shook him violently.
"Connor, it's happening again!" Tears began streaming down her face as she sprinted outside, leaving her brother in her dust. Her white gown flowed behind her, catching mud from under her heels as she dug her feet into the path. Panic was painted across her face, and soon she broke through the forest to see the chaos unfolding in the small village. What she thought was a rising sun beforehand was revealed to be the flames towering from the weak, log buildings. The villagers ran about in panic, as soldiers snatched up children, and shot the men. Raina watched in horror at the amount of Royal Red in the small area, five soldiers to every civilian. The streets ran red with the blood of dying men as the soldiers ripped families from their homes, and set carts and homes aflame.
Come out, come out wherever you are! she heard one soldier yell out as he swung a Wanted Poster with a strange man's face upon it.
We don't know that man..please leave us be! a woman pleaded before being knocked to the ground. After watching for a moment Raina ran into the crowd headed toward a soldier gripping a young girl by the hair, lifting her off the ground and slipping his hand under her dress. The child screamed in agony, cried for him to stop, but the man merely laughed. Raina threw herself onto the man, slamming her small fists into his chest.
"Stop you animal, can't you see she's just a child!"
The soldier dropped the child, gripping Raina by the wrists, "What a pretty girl, now you are more my type," he said as he grinned at her hungrily. Though she taught and kicked he easily scooped her up and threw her down onto the ground, ripping open her dress.
"Don't you dare you PIG!" she screamed as she kicked him hard in the shin. Even with all her force, she did little damage, and the last thing she feels is his thick, chunky fist coming down on her temple. Her vision goes black as she cries out desperately,"Connor...please help me...

Connor had tried to sleep off the large argument between Rob and Dante the night before, he was confused and a bit saddened that they were fighting since they were the only two people he could actually trust. His silent lumber was interrupted by his sister shoving him awake. He groaned and looked up to see her running out. He didn't quite catch what she said but he saw her small frame run out the door and Connor sprang for his rifle he kept at the door then peered out and saw it. "Another raid..." he said under his breath then screamed for his sister but it was too late. She was on her way and she would try to help some of the townsfolk, she was to sweet to care for herself which Connor despised at times but he knew she was much more pure of heart than he would ever be.
He quickly grabbed his jacket and threw on a pair of boots, he knew he had to look professional for this. He put on his belt with the small pistol on the side and the sword on the other as he slung his rifle over his shoulder and took off in vain as to back up his sister. He stood no more than twenty meters from the town as he spotted the chaos. He remained relativity cold expressioned until he saw the shoulder with Raina who was ripping her dress and hit her on the head. All of the rage and fire he had kept inside of him since the faithful day of his escape came loose. He pulled the sword which was only roughly eighteen or so inches and his pistol and dashed toward the man. It was foolish but he plunged the sword into the mans back and pulled him off of his sister who's dress was half ripped but still concealing most of her. He then pulled the man up who was spitting blood weakly, as it rolled down his chin and he looked him in the eye and spoke with the voice of a killer. "Do not touch my sister do you hear me?" the man nodded with tears in his eyes as his macho from touching still flowered girls had faded into his true mark, a coward. He couldn't have been younger than thirty but he was obviously unwed nor having the compassion for a woman whom he wouldn't be able to order around like a common slave as most veteran royals did. Connor knew he deserved this and the man knew it too. Connor put the pistol under the man's chin and pulled the trigger without him knowing, the best way to go.
He quickly looked around and let out a sigh of relief that the chaos had covered the murder and he scooped up his little sister and sobbed a little. She wasn't heavy which was good for the lean boy as he ran out and tried to make his way to the forest, desperately trying to get their before he would be spotted. He clutched the girl and held her tight, he could feel her breathe and tremble. After a little bit of running they made it safely there. The house wouldn't be safe for a few days but it wouldn't be touched if they weren't there since there was no use trying to burn an empty home made of metal.
He sat Raina down on the grass once he found a clearing. He was shaking as he looked down on her and stroked her hair. "Raina, Raina are you alright sister?" he asked with tears in his eyes. He feared for the worse and shook more violently as she laid there for what seemed like hours but was actually seconds...

Richard could barely contain his joy at the assassin's response. He had just gained a massive boon to the war effort. The people might have a chance with the fabled assassin who killed the queen fighting for them now.

"Follow me, stay close."

Dick said as he ran off into the thick brush and started sprinting through the darkness. The pair ran all night, the sun creeping up onto the horizon just as Richard and Porter reached the outlaying area of the town. Dick skidded to a stop as he saw and felt the heat coming from the village.

"Bastards..."

Her muttered more to himself than Corvo as his eyes scanned the buildings burning before them. Royal Guards swept through the village killing any who dared stand against them. The others were either beaten or taken as prizes by the men. The sight sickened Dick, just another example of the abuses of the royalty. The worst part about all this was that all of this chaos would probably be covered up as some random fire that swept through the sleepy village. The people would never learn that the illustirous Royal Guard were actually to blame.

Richard swung his Raptor off his back and into his hands, ready to put his life on the line for the people suffering in the village before them. HIs primary objective however had to be locating the princess who should be in that madness somewhere.

"Hope you haven't got rusty. We've got us a princess to save."

Dick said as he charged forward to finally break into the grassy clearing on the outskirts of the village to finally reach the village. The second he did he spotted two villagers. A man around Richard's age and a beautiful woman withs striking white hair in his arms. The man had apparently been carrying her to saftey and just set her down either from exhaustion or concern for her well being. Before Dick could say anything three Royal Guards came charging towards the pair, guns in hand. Dick set his jaw in anger and concentrtaion as he stepped forward while he set the butt of his rifle into his shoulder and lowered into a kneeling position to improve accuracy from this range. The first guard opened his mouth, no doubt to shout threats or orders to stop to the villagers but his life left him before he could utter a word as Dick squeezed the trigger. The round tore through the guards throat, dropping him instantly. The other two guards halted in their tracks, uncertain where the shot came from.

Dick got to his feet, more than willing to let them know who was responsible. He slowly advanced out of the clearing, firing in two short controlled bursts of fire. The guards fell to the rounds fired from Richard's Raptor as tight grouping ripped through their chests. They died before even getting a shot off. Dick lowered his weapon as he eyed the bodies from the few yards he was standing from them now to ensure they weren't getting back up.

His eyes flicked up to the groups surroundings, scanning for more guards as he spoke over his shoulder to the villager and the young woman in his arms.

"Are either of you two hurt?"
