Mitch's DreamThe sun was hot and beating down heavily on all of us. We were sweating under our camo gear, but not one of us dropped our guard. It had been our fifth month in Afghanistan, only two more missions from a trip home. I took a long swig from my canteen before I poured a little onto my gloved hand and pressed the warm liquid against my neck. It was disgusting, but it was hydration non the less. Silence had taken over our team, apart form the common military calling. All personal chat had been cut to a minimum, and we all preferred it that way. The dusty ground we were sat on was orange, and we looked ahead at the road before us, as it screamed death to the infidels. Around the road, hiding in plain sight were children. They knew what we were doing, and had come to see the morning's highlight fireworks of gore. We had pleased them once already, and down somewhere on the road, a small grave had been set up in honour of the sniffer dog we used to carry along with us. The only frien
The Legend of The Warrior ch4Chapter 4
The moonlight had nowhere to shine, as a lone beam snuck into the rocky cavern, sending a dull spotlight to the throne of rocks and iron. It was empty, and two sillouhettes snuck from nowhere to stand before it. One was glowing, and he pulled froth the iten that betrayed his presence. It was a katana, long and thin with a chord wrapped around it's handle. The blade was sharp, with a green edge that shone and glittered as though it were waterm reflecting the sunlight. Slowly, a misty darkness crept from nowhere, forming around the feet of the two dark ninja, waiting for their master. Slowly, they knelt, one offering the blade up to the smoke as it billowed around them, almost consuming them. It's stench was putrid as it swirled darkly, like a cobra waiting to strike. It did, as a jet of the smokey substance sprung forward, coiling around the blade and dragging it from the ninja's grip. It's handle hit the ground, and sparks jutted from the dark rocks as the smoke dragged it up
The Legend of The Warrior ch3Chapter 3
"He cheated!" She roared, agony ripping through her voice as tears brimmed her eyes. Stood alone in the temple's throne room, Asha had stood from her kneeling position, looking up at the master sensei, who placed a thin hand on his wrinkled brow and gave a long, drawn out sigh.
"I know what you're saying," he sympathised honestly, "but we found no evidence of his breaking the rules. You simply were distracted, and he knocked you down."
"No such thing happened!" Asha growled, furious as every word was a blade in her possession, "he blinded me and struck me while I couldn't see! I demand a rematch!"
"You can demand nothing..." The sensei hissed, snapping his head to stare at her.
"I will have what I want, father!"
"Watch your tongue!" The master sensei replied, raising a thin, bony finger at his daughter as he stood, marching closer to the girl, "and do not let your anger forget you your place! You have no right to speak to me in this way, and you must be punished!"
The Legend of The Warrior Ch2Chapter 2
Kyo stood on the arena's edge, watching the battles. He studied the techniques of those fighting as he took note in his head on how they had been trained. Suddenly, something lightly gripped his belt and tugged at it. Kyo turned to see a little girl pulling at him.
"You're a ninja!" she stated, holding a toy rabbit as she cuddled with it. Kyo lifted the edge of one lip into a smile as she beamed at him, almost shyly.
"Yes... yes I am." he grinned with pride, pulling his belt a little tighter.
"Why is it blue?" she asked, and Kyo took to one knee, drawing his eyes from the fight to meet with those of the little girl.
"It's a symbol of my rank," he explained, smiling, "blue shows that I'm a rookie. I only joined a year or so ago and, to be honest, this is my first real tournament."
"Wooowww!" The little girl squealed, "mine too!" She struck a pose and Kyo laughed.
"Red," he continued, as the girl listened intently, "is the colour of those who've advanced from blue. E
