Because sometimes, you have to fight through the pain to complete your job

Etho knocked on the old wooden door and waited a few seconds before entering the room. It had been a while since he'd been in there, but it was exactly how he remembered it.

"I take it the jobs been done" RB states, obviously noticing Etho's ever so slight limp and grimace.

Etho tried so hard to hide it. He wasn't ashamed, no, but RB would be ever so disappointed, like that mattered anymore.

"Yes, it has been done."

"Great! why don't you take a break, your dorm room is set up waiting for you, Nebris' body should be here shortly, if you wanted to, you know, say your final goodbyes."

Etho nods, heading out of the small room and down the hall to his room, the one he barely went to.

It was exactly how he had left it last, though maybe a little neater.

He sat down on the bed and checked the time on his watch. All he had to do now was wait, and he's usually a patient person, but, this was excruciating.

There was a soft knock on the door, and Etho was a little surprised.

"Come in"

A person he instantly recognized entered the room. Her dark brown hair drawn back in a pony tail and her blue eyes furious and watery. Etho was instantly pinned to the bed, a knife pressed against his throat.

"Whoa! whoa!" Etho shouted "what the hell!"

"You murdered my brother." Hannah growls, pushing the knife a little harder against his neck.

"Wait... I thought you didn't now about him"

"Of course I fucken knew! He's my brother. I know what that asshole RB has done."

Etho just stared at her, unable to comprehend.

"Now, you'll get what's coming to you just like that fucker RB will." Hannah says, pressing the knife against his neck even harder.

"He's not dead!" Etho half shouts, not wanting to be over heard.

"What?" Hannah asks, pulling back the knife, revealing a small scarlet line.

"He's merely out cold. I.... I couldn't kill him Hannah, I couldn't kill the man I love."

Hannah just stared at him, Etho still pinned beneath him.

"I fell in love with him, like a dumb ass, and I couldn't do it. I told him everything. Then we found out about RB and the terrible things she's done and that's when we came up with a plan. Nebris is bound to be waking up soon. we have to get to him before RB does."

"Your insane" Hannah mutters, getting off of Etho. "lets go, I know where they have him. He should have just arrived."

The two head out of the small room and down a bunch of hallways. They eventually come to a door, where two guards are stationed. The guards nod at the two, granting them entrance. Hannah closes the door behind them, standing watch.

Etho walks over to Nebris, sadness tugging at his heart, even though he knew he wasn't actually dead. He grabs Nebris' hand, intertwining their fingers together. It hurt to see him like this, but he knew soon enough that he'd be ok.

Nebris suddenly started gasping, taking short, rough, breaths. Etho moved so Nebris could see him.

"Deep breaths, Nebs, deep breaths." Etho said calmly, helping Nebris sit up and rubbing his back.

Nebris' breathing eventually evened out, allowing him to think clearly again. Hannah was hugging him the second he was ok. Nebris looked so confused.

"Nebris, this Hannah, you sister" Etho states

"H-hannah?" Nebris asks, tears forming in his eyes.

"It's really me Nebris, it's really me."

"You look exactly like dad"

Hannah laughs, her very stern guise falling away. "I've never seen them, so I wouldn't know."

"When we get out of this, i'll show you pictures of them."

Etho hated to break the good mood of the reunion, but, they had to get moving.

"Uh guys, we have to go. RB will be leaving her courters soon."

"Right. lets get going then" Nebris says, jumping off of the table and heading to the door.

"Wait! Nebris, there's guards out there."


"I'll take care of them" Etho says, heading to the door.

"Shall we inform RB that you are done?" One of the guards asks

"No, I shall tell her myself" Etho addresses the two, stealthily grabbing two knifes from his waist.

He moved quickly, planting a knife in the throat of both guards, which left them choking and struggling for air. Nebris and Hannah joined Etho in the hall and the three made their way to RB's courters. They entered the room quietly, hoping to catch her off guard, which they did.

Hannah moved and pinned her to the ground, leaving Etho and Nebris to take care of business.

"Get off me Hannah" RB growls

"Your not the boss of me" Hannah responds, pure anger seeping into her voice.

Etho hands Nebris a knife, his knife, the special one with the black ebony handle with dark red curly letters. Nebris sends Etho a look and he nods. Nebris squats beside RB, holding the knife behind his back.

"You bastard! I thought you were dead" RB spits out.

"You don't really think Etho could kill the man he loves, do you?" Nebris asks

"I knew something was up. You were so dumb Etho, so terribly dumb. I had given you so many warnings. So many hints to be cautious, yet you still went and fell in love. Now you'll have to go too, all of you will."

Etho steps out of the shadow he had been standing in and looked down at RB, his grey-red eyes were calm.

"You see RB, love is strange, and mysterious. You can't help who you love, and I think you found that out the hard way." Etho says, his voice level, calm.

RB glares at him, pure hatred in her blue eyes.

"Do it Nebris, I'm tired of hearing her" Hannah says, glancing at Nebris.

"You deserve this for everything you've done. You deserve the same fate as my mother and father had" Nebris says as he takes the knife and stand her in the heart.

Blood quickly starts pooling beside her, soaking her blue cloak, turning it dark red. Her breathing quickly become ragged and rough. And, soon enough she wasn't breathing at all.

Hannah stood up, standing close to his big brother. Nebris put an arm on her shoulder, squeezing it gently.

"Did you know her real name?" Nebris asks his little sister.

"No, all I ever called her was RB." Hannah responds.

"You may not know, but I do" says a figure who steps out of the shadows.

The person has messy brown hair and green eyes. He's relatively tall and well built.

"Who are you?" Hannah asks, a knife in hand.

"Now, think about what your about to do and think of the consequences. I have the answer." The mysterious man says, a slight hint of sarcasm in his voice.

"Who. are. you." Hannah says again, more sternly this time.

"The names Echo, I'm RB's older brother."

"You said you had answers" Nebris cuts in.

"Ah yes, RB's real name is Ruddiest Bubbles. Most people called her Bubs as a child."

"Is that really all your going to tell us?"

"No, no, just give me a chance to talk." Echo says, leaning against the wall behind him. "Bubs and I grew up in a family that wasn't quiet, well, right in the head. Our parents treated her like a slave, while I was treated like a prince. She was an accidental pregnancy, she wasn't actually wanted by my parents, and they expressed that. She wasn't shown any love or compassion. So, when she meet Adam, your guys' father, she fell in love. Adam gave her the love she craved and missed from her childhood. When she turned eighteen she ran away with Adam. They went to the town you grew up in Nebris. That where Adam meet Malissa. Adam ended up cheating on Bubs with Malissa. Bubs was devastated when she found out. She had had her heart broken. She left him and vowed to get her revenge. And, that's what she did." Echo stops for a second before addressing Etho "you were a pawn in this whole thing. EZ knew from the second you were born that you'd eventually become an assassin. And, as soon as you were old enough he recruited you. He sent you after Seth because he knew you'd try and seduce him and you would end up having some sort of feelings for him and when you killed him, you would be torn up over it and have to leave. Which, is exactly what happened. it was all part of his plan, to send you to Bubs, to help her with her revenge. Her revenge was to kill Malissa and Adam and to kidnap Hannah. She left you alive, Nebris, so you could suffer. I know you've lost a big part of yourself because of Bubs, but I have faith you'll find it again. And Hannah, you were gonna be the sole survivor of this all. You were supposed to take over the agancy when Bubs retired."

The three stared in shock as the story unfolded, the puzzle pieces finally all fitting together.

"She was insane, wasn't she?" Nebris asks

"Yes, she was. sadly. She had so much innocence when she was a young girl. She had so much potential, but that was taken from her. I used to feel sorry for her, but she's brought all this upon herself. She really truly deserved this."

"What now?" Hannah asks

"You'll take over the agency and try to go back to our normal lives."

Etho snorts "I wouldn't call it normal"

They all share a laugh, realizing just how crazy their lives had become, and how crazy they still would be in the years to come.

Okay, I did not notice that. You're EXTREMELY observant. All I was going on was, "Bubbles isn't that evil. Right?"

Lol I just have a good memory. I suspected bubbles wouldn't kill Nebris and although what Etho said and did was very convincing,(like he was hoping they'd leave Nebris alone after seeing him comatose)the colour of the liquid had a wrong feel. Light pink just didn't seem like the colour Etho used to kill Seth.

And I still feel sorry for poor Seth. :( But great story.

I was positive that he wasn't actually dead! I really was. That's a load off my mind, though. Phew.

Now I feel all sorry for RB. Why did you do that? :(
