The Assassin

Chapter One:

Zane

Zane was a young boy who lived with his family. He had a loving Mother named Stary, a older brother named Az, a older sister named Sally, a younger twin named Tommy, a younger sister named Tally and a younger half-brother named Matthew. Zane had special powers that only he and his family knew about, until one day he told someone and then his life changed forever...

"Hey! I'll make it rain on you!" Tommy yelled. Zane jumped and hid behind his mom, Stary. "Mommy! Tommy's being mean!" Zane whined. "Tommy! Stop torturing your older brother Zane! Torture other people, not your family." Stary said. Zane smiled when Az walked in. "Hey Azzy! How did your kill go?" Zane asked. "It went just fine, got a few hundred yen." Az replied. "Moooommmmmmmmmmm!!!!" Sally yelled. "What is it?" Stary asked. "Who went in my room?! Someone took all my swords and poison darts!" Sally whined. "Boys, did you go in Sally's room?" Stary asked. "No Mum, I didn't." Zane answered. "I was busy studying!" Tommy yelled. "Tommy, we all know you don't study, you train. I'm ashamed of you for lying. Next time lie better." Stary said sharply.

Zane's family was a family of assassins, they were also a special type of people called 'Shamans'. They were taught to kill even since they could walk. Zane's dad, Rex was almost never there, unless it was to yell at Zane or beat him up or do some tests. For Zane the tests weren't too bad, he had gotten use to the needles for a while now, it just was that he couldn't handle being called a 'worthless loser who will never amount to anything' that bugged him.

"Zane, a woman wants to talk to you about a job, she's in the backyard." Stary told Zane. "Okay Mum." Zane said as he went outside. "Hello Zane." A woman said. "Hello ma'am, what is your job. You ask it, and I'll do as long as I get paid." Zane said, using his family's catchphrase. "I want you to kill someone. Do you think you could do it?" The woman asked. "Ma'am, I can control Darkness so I think I could kill someone." Zane answered. "Control Darkness? What do you mean child?" The woman asked. "I'm a Shaman, we control elements and we can talk to spirits." Zane answered. "A Shaman?" The woman asked. "Yeah, it's what you people may call Psychic." Zane answered. "Oh, I see." The woman said softly. "Now anyways, who do you want me to kill?" Zane asked. "I want you to kill your family, think about it. I'll be back in four moons." The woman said as she walked away.

Zane sat down and thought about what the woman said. Could I kill my family? Could I actually betray them? A meow brought Zane out of his thoughts. "Oh hi Junko*." Zane said to his cat. "Meow." The cat answered back. "You're hungry aren't you?" Zane asked as he scratched Junko's ear.Junko started to purr. "My, aren't you a clever girl?" Zane asked with a grin. Junko meowed happily.

"What shall we name him Rex?" Stary asked. "Akihiko*? Jun*? Junichi*? Katsu*?" Rex suggested. "Maybe, Mamoru*? Or Ryuu*? Tadao*?" Stary said. "Takeshi*? Tamotsu* maybe? Or Yori*?" Rex said. "How about Yuu* or Yuudai*?" Stary asked. "Hey mom?" Az asked. "Yes?" Stary answered. "Me and my twiny, been thinking about a name." Sally said. "Yeah so how..." Az started to say. "...about Zane?" Sally finished. "Zane? That seems like a good name." Stary said. "I agree." Rex said.

Four moons had pasted and Zane was waiting in the backyard for the woman. "Hello my child." The woman said. "I'm not going to do it." Zane said firmly. "And why not aren't you a Yori?" The woman asked. "I may be a Yori but I'm also a Yoshio*." Zane answered. "Oh really?" The woman asked."Yes. I may be a Hitokiri* but I'm also a Junjou*." Zane said.

Zane sighed and walked up to his shinshitsu*. "I hope everything else won't be this hard tomorrow..." Zane whispered softly as he climbed into his bed.
