My story isn't a pleasant one, but I need to finally tell it.....i need people to understand why I am the way I am.....
This body isn't even mine. It belongs to my twin sister, her name is Darka Norin. You might be asking why I said is instead of was. Just keep reading
My sister and I were born on May 11 in the beautiful kingdom called Corlaur. I don't remember our mother, but what I've gathered she wasn't the best ruler. She was crazed with the powers she controlled. When she saw that she gave birth to two children instead of one she was not happy.
That's when a thought went through her head, why not have the two fight to the death. So that night she conjured up a curse, and put it in two different necklaces, she then put them around our necks
The curse was whoever was stronger by the time we turned sixteen, that person would get all the life force from the weaker and all of their powers put into the necklace around their neck.
When we were only a few months old our mother could see the powers in my sister beginning to grow. Fire and Mist, a good combination and very powerful. As for me? I don't know what my original powers were suppose to be. I never showed any.
Our mother decided she was going to help my sister become the best. So I was locked in a room for sixteen years. I couldn't escape from that place, there were bars on the window, a steel door, the floor was cold and she made sure that the bed was bolted to the floor. I had a chained wrapped around my foot so I couldn't escape her beatings. That chain was wrapped around the bed post. My mother would come in and abuse me. Soon when Darka was old enough she would join our mother in abusing me.
The day we turned sixteen finally came. Our mother cut the chain from my leg and grabbed me by my hair and dragged me out onto the steps of the castle. A crowed had gather to watch the event. I looked out into the crowed of people, and all I saw was angry faces, not one single concerned look in the crowd.
Then the time came for the necklaces to pick who would live and who would die.
At that moment I just wanted it all to end. I was very tired, beaten, and felt truly alone in this world. I just wanted to sleep. So I gave into the power's thinking I would finally find peace. So I just, closed my eyes, and laid there waiting.
Little did i know that my life wasn't over. Someone out there wasn't done with me, a girl who had nothing.
I felt something grab me, pulling me closer, I welcomed it. I saw a bright red light and knew that I had lost. It would finally be over. I would finally be free from all of this.
Then I saw nothing and I knew nothing, just floating.
Sometime later I woke up and found myself outside of Corlaur, all I saw was fire everywhere. I ran for it not knowing what had happen when all of a sudden memories hit me. I saw Darka had killed our mother then the rest of the kingdom, but that didn't explain why I was here...why I was still alive and what happen to Darka.
I came across a lake, and when I looked into what I was expecting to see wasn't there. What looked back at me looked like my sister, but she looked scared and lost. That's when I realized it was me. I touched my face and so did the reflection. I moved away from the lake, away from the imagine.
This isn't what I wanted. I didn't want to live. I wasn't suppose to live. I don't want control over this body, I didn't want to look like her at all.
That is how he found me. I looked up at him and saw that he had two swords in his hands. He lowed his weapon and came over and picked me up in his arms, and carried me back to where he lived.
His name was Blake Phoenix, another elf just like me. He explained to me later after i recovered some that he was in a party and they saw the smoke. They went to investigate what had happen and he came across me.
That is how I became an Assassin....
The place I stayed at was called The Creed. For six years I trained hard. I found a reason to live in this body, to keep living. You could even say I did make one friend while I was there, and yes it was the boy who found me that night.
On the night before my twenty-first birthday I found out something that scared me.
Darka finally showed herself. She was weak from all the damage she had done, but slowly she was gaining her strength back.
Even though I was more controlling of my emotions I didn't let anyone know that I was scared, not even Blake. That was one thing I remember from my first lessons, never show fear. I decided that soon I would be leaving The Creed.
I let Blake know of my plans. For days on end he begged me not to go. I didn't listen.
I needed to try and find my place in this world, with a sister who wanted to destroy everything I was trying to live for.
The Creed was a great place to start but......I need more.
I'll travel for the rest of my life if I have to.
