Kyvan shouted after her, "Where are you going? The soldiers and Creatures are going to be swarming that area! You'll be killed-" he stopped and then pulled his knife back out, "Unless you are a soldier."
He saw Wyvern above, circling in case he called on her to strike.
Darkyn smiled and patted Risk. "I knew I could count on you, Risk. YOU make me proud you know that?"
Darkyn pulled out a file of the Chinese man and his grandson. "Their name is Yang. Shang is the old man and Woo is the younger boy. They have been under out radar for a long time now and we think they are helpers to the rebels but we can't prove it." He handed Risk the file.
Try turned around and satred at him, this was his fault!! All she'd wante dwas to live peacfully and quietly, under the radar until her Mom adn Dad came back, now she had to run from the comfrtable enough home she'd made because of him! She glared at him and looked back at teh building, she'd be quick enough right? "I just have to get a few things." she muttere and truning satrted to run, though it hurt her leg alot, she just needed that picture and her diary, and if it was really such a rush she could settle for the picture right?
Risk took teh fiel and went to sit down ona chair in teh room, he wasn't teh best reader ever, he was in fact rather slow, but he went at reading this file. His eyes scanned teh page slowly and he mouthe dteh words as he read them. "What will you want me to be,s ir?" he asked. He ws literally glowing with Darkyn's prasie. Darkyn was proud of him! Darkyn was proud of him, Risk!!
Kyvan looked down at his arm- that was throbbing from the poison. He knew the posion could very well kill him, or at least rot his arm off, but he couldn't let that girl go back alone. If she was an innocent bystander he had been the one to get her in harm's way and needed to make sure she would be okay. But if she was a soldier he needed to take care of her to make sure she didn't give away any info about him.
He sighed and trailed after her- tearing another peice from his shirt and tieing it above the bite and keeping his arm down.
Darkyn watched as Risk flipped through the file. "I will need you to pretend to be a street urchan. You will play the role of an orphan whose parents were killed by working in the factories. You don't remember them because you were so young. Any other details make up before you leave and memorize them so you don't get confused by your story. You will then go to hte library and beg for food in trade of work. You will gain the Yangs trust and find out if they are on our side or the others." Darkyn studied him, "Can you do that, Risk?"
Try heard someone following and gritting her teeth from pain picked up her pace, she went up teh stairs to her loft quickly she pulle dout her precious item form the pile of junk. She put the photograph of her parents into her diary andgrabbing her pencil turned around and started back down teh stairs. She heard noises down teh road, something was approaching, she ahd to get out of here, now.
Risk looke dupa dn nodded, "Yes sir." he said. It would be easy to play an orphan, since he probably was one. He hadn't seen his mother for 2 years, she'd probably died and he never met his father, he was also most likely dead. He got up and got ready to leaev the office, thinking up a story as he did so. "I'll go down and pick up some clothes and such." he said he went to tehd oor turned around and snapping to attention saluted.
Kyvan hid in the dark as he watched the girl pack. He didn't want to let her know he was there incase she was a soldier. Which were driving down the road right now and begining to jump out and swarm the area. If the girl was a rebel she needed to leave soon.
Darkyn nodded at Risk. "Report back to me when you are ready to go. I have something to give you."
Risk nodded adn ran off down to teh dusguise department. He explained what he needed to the person tehre and went to the closet/workroom to get himself fitted with something that an opraned street rat would wear. He was excited for this, he'd enver been allowe dto do a mission, adn he knew the street of teh city like teh back his hand form the time he was actuallly a street rat with his gang.
Try left the loft and went down stairs and out teh building, the man wasn't tehre anymore, turning she limped off towards the river. She was turning paler now from losing a lot of blood adn ehr leg was hurting more. She clutched her stuff to her chest, not wanting to let go.
Kyvan followed her. She was heading away from the soldiers. Maybe she was just a civilian. Wyvern landed by him as he hunkered in the shadows of the roof top. She nudged his hurt arm- that was now red and swolen from the poision.
"I know girl, but I have to see if that chick is good new or not first." He whispered to her.
He trailed after her but stopped as he saw a soldier about to cross her path. If she kept heading that way they'd meet up for sure.
Darkyn smiled as soon as Risk left. This might just work out after all.
Risk reported back, he was dressed in rags that barely covered him, dirt had beens meared all over his body and his hair. He looked just like he had when he'd first been taken in. He even had the startings of a black eye, though that wasn't on prupose, he'd run into a wall while running recklessly up to Darkyn's office. "I'm 'ere guvna." he said using his street kid talk, they way he spoke when ehw as first picked up.
Try saw tehs odleirs coming and clutched her knife, there was a group of them. SHe tried to avoid them but didn't do it well adn one of eths oldier noticed her, and grabebd ehr collar, "You, girl, who are you,w here you goin'?" he asked roughly lfiting her off ehr feet. Try growled, "I ain't done nuttin;'.!" she said angrily, "Let me go." he insisted. The soldier just lifted her higher, "Who are you?" he asked, "I ain't a rebel if that's what ya mean, "I ain't no one." she said, this was a bad situation for her. The se soldiers looked rough and angry, probably had been dragged out of a nice bed to go here and weren't to happy about it.
KYvan growled as he recognized Larr, a soldier known for taking advantage of women. He readied his knife and Wyvern flexed her wings, ready to attack at Kyvan's instructions.
Darkyn walked slowly around Risk, taking in every detail. He looked the part but could he act it. "How are you?" he demanded.
Risk just laghed at the question, "W'a' ya think, guvna." he spat, playing his part, his tone mcking when he said the word 'guvna'. He crossed hsi amrs on his chest and gave Darkyn an insolent look his grin mocking and daring his eyes flashed with the uncaring, daring, mocking glint of a strret urchin whow as used to being pushed around and had had enough of it.
"Let me go!" Try shouted at the soldier, spitting in his face, "YOou ain't answerin' my question, girl!" the guard snapped. Try could feel his other hadn running along her body and her face contorted with disgust. "Let me go!" she repeated, swinging ehr legs, trying to hit him, but failing. The guard continued to glare and his hand went to her shirt, which he started to unbutton. "You don't let me go and I'll scream." Try threatened, her eye flicking aorund searching for someone to help. The guard paid her no heed.
The other soldiers gathered around, blocking her view of anyone or anything. She counted slowly, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8!!! 8 soldiers in total. She was dropped as her shirt came totally unbottoned. Please,s omeone, anyone come!!! she thought. A hand covered her moutha dn she squeezed her eye shut. Anybody even that stupid man from before, please just don't let this happen! she thought.
Kyvan felt a wave of anger. Even if this was a set up for him to come out of hiding he'd have to risk it. He quickly dropped his knife and grabbed his crossbow strapped to his back. He aimed at Lar and fired- hitting him dead in the throat.
"Go get them, Wyvern," Kyvan ordered her.
Wyvern launched into the air and was soon pecking and clawing another soldier's face. Kyvan fired again- hitting a second and then a third.
But from his vantage point he could see the fight drawing more soldiers near. He had to get that girl out of there and take her with him to the hideout. She'd be safe there and have time to heal.
Darkyn fought the urge to glare at Risk as he spat. "Where's your parents? How old are you? WHere were you born? Do you have any training of any sorts?"
"My parents dead, I ain't had no trainin 't all ,an' I'm eight years old." Risk said inspecting his nails like they were very interesting and actinga s rude as he thought he could get away with. He paused, "Guvna." he added insolently. H eliekd playing the part of a street rat, it was fun.
Larr's blood spattered all over Try as he was shot, he fell on top of her, he wasn't dead yet though, his hands were groping for something and the hole in his throat hissing, he was obviously dying. Try rolle dhim off of her, just in time for another dead sodlier to fall on top of her. Try pushe dthat one off and quickly rolled out of the way, she got up and satrted to rebotton her shirt, her finger fumbling, she was only using one hand, her otehr hand still clutched her things tightly.
Kyvan shot a third but now other soldiers were about to swarm the alley. He pulled out two firecrackers and lit them. He threw them into a pile of trash and they exploded loudly and knocked the trash into a very good barrier of the alley.
Wyvern was chasing two soldiers around as they tried to hide their faces from her and shoot her at the same time.
Kyvan groaned as his arm ached, but he ignored the pain. He lept from the roof into the alley way. He shot a fourth soldier. "Come on, girl, if you want to get to safetly!"
Darkyn stopped walking and crossed his arms in front of Risk. Finaly he nodded. "I think you are ready."
He pulled out a small leather necklace with an ugly stone on the end. These were very common among street rats. The children wore them to "Ward the Creatures away'. "Keep this on you at all times. If you ever take it off I won't be able to find you. This will keep us together."
"Yezza guvna." Risks aid, he put teh stone around his neck and then looked up at Darkyn, "Time fer me to run eh?" he asked, ready to leave and go about his job.
Try was startled by the boy, she spun away form him and finished buttoning ehr shirt up. Then she turned back to him, "Where is safe?" she asked him, crossing her arms on her chest, hoping she'd turned away in time and that he hadn't seen anything. She guesed she was ready to follow this boy, he had gotten her out of what could have been a terrible situation, Try had been taken advantage of before, when she lived in eth streets, it ahd been one of tehw orst expeirences of her life.
The pain in Kyvan's arm was increasing so much it hurt to breath because even the smallest of movements made it ache. "I'm not going to say it out loud, but if you want to come follow me. ANd if you want to stay and meet up with some more soldiers be my guest."
He whistled for WYvern and then darted into a nearby alleyway that led away from the soldiers.
Darkyn nodded. "Just remember that they are liars, Risk. They will try to turn you against me, but remember I was the one who saved you and took you in. Now go. ANd make me proud."
Try nodded, not in the mood to agrue anymore, her leg was throbbingad n she now favoring her other side more and more. She followed him carefully , her pace much slowler than ebfore for teh loss of blood had also made her weak and mroe tired. She had a hard time even tailing the man becuase he moved faster than she did with ehr injured leg.
"I neva fergit 'at, guvna." Risk said, and he turned and left the room, eh ran off and left the building heading out to the streets. To the adventure he'd just been gvievn. He was important now, he was ona missiona ll by himself, except for tehs tone that connected him to Darkyn.
Kyvan finally stopped at an old sewage hole. He lept down and landed on the cement inside- it had long dried up here. He then continued moving until he found a ladder. He managed to climb up with one arm to another exit. he climbed out onto the empty street and helped the girl after him. Wyvern flew ahead.
"Almost there," he promised.
Darkyn watched Risk leave before smirking. he had known it would pay off to have him around.
Try follwoed quietky, she just nodded when the man saud they were almost there. She was too weak from loss of blood to care anymore, if they got there than good if they didn't then who would care? She kept ehr head ducked and feet moving, concentrating on walking and staying upright.
Risk was in teh streets now he started to make his way towards the library, makings ure to 'fall' intoa ditch and make hismelf a filthy mess on the way.
Kyvan went to an old door that was covered in multiple stains. he pounded on it with his first two times and rapted with his knuckles three times and shouted, "Open the rotten door!"
Yang swung open the door, "What happened? And who is that?"
"We're both hurt. Let's us in," Kyvan gently prodded the girl ahead. "Get her your grandpa quickly."
Woo yang nodded and shouted to another nearby boy named Red, "Help her. I'll take care of him. And don't tell her anything, "He whispered softer to him so the girl couldn't hear. "Not even your name."
