An Assassins Life Chapter 9: Friends of The Family 1469

Bells tolled in the background, the sign an assassin had struck.

Guards raced around the city, looking for the assassin.

People ran back to their homes, the whole city was in turmoil.

Antonino kept running, going the long way back to our house.

Everything kept going black as I kept drifting in and out of consciences.

“Hang on Miranda, we’re almost home.” Antonino said as he raced towards home.

Alfonso raced over, and was covered in blood. “You alright Antonino?”

“I am fine father, but I am not so sure about Miranda.”

“I see, we have to get her home quickly.”

Five guards ran over to the assassins and surrounded them.

“So, you’re the one who killed the Doge, eh?” Said the guard captain.

“I have done no such thing!” Alfonso said as he drew his broadsword.

“You might say that yet your covered in blood, which I presume is that of the Doge’s.” said the guard captain as he swung his sword at Alfonso.

Alfonso blocked the attack and kicked the guard in the gut before clanging his sword against the his sword.

The guard wearing full armour and holding a huge battle axe charged at Antonino.

Antonino knew he could not fight due to having Miranda in his arms, so he had to keep moving to dodge the guards’ attacks.

“Come back here you little pest.” Grunted the guard, trying to hit Antonino with his battle axe.

“So you can kill me? Fat chance of that you estupido guard.”

The guard managed to hit Antonino’s shoulder with his axe causing him to drop to the ground.

Alfonso started to tire and took out one of the guards before taking a sword cut to his thigh.

“We have you now assassins!” said the guard captain as he stuck the tip of his sword against Alfonso’s chest.

I grabbed one of my brothers throwing knifes without thinking.

One of the guards dropped his sword and fell to the ground, a crossbow bolt stuck in his back.

I threw the knife I had grabbed into the guard captain’s arm, causing him to drop his sword and cry out in pain.

“You little *****!” he screamed as he picked me up and squeezed me.

I gasped for air, and struggled weakly.

Antonino kicked the guards’ feet out from under him, causing the guard to drop me onto a sword that was wedged blade side up in between the flagstones.

I cried out in pain before everything, and I mean everything went black.

Antonino picked me up gently and wrapped his cape around me to slow down the bleeding.

The other guards to a step towards the assassins before they too fell, a crossbow bolt stuck in each of their backs.

“Requiescat in pace.” Said Giovanni walked over as he put away his crossbow.

“It’s good to see you Giovanni.” Said Alfonso as he stood up shakily.

“Same here, but we have to get you two and your daughter home.” Giovanni said as he helped Antonino stand up. “Now let’s go.”

They raced back home and no more guards tried to stop them.

Alfonso knocked on the door before opening it and staggering inside, his thigh soaked in blood and still bleeding.

“Alfonso? What happened to you?” Caterina asked as she walked over with a worried expression on her face.

“We…… we got attacked by some guards on the way home.” Alfonso said as he sat down on a chair.

Giovanni stood in the doorway. “I’ll see you later Alfonso, I have to go but could you look after Ezio for me until I get back?”

“Sure Giovanni, just don’t take too long.”

“I won’t, now take care.” Giovanni said as he left.

Antonino put Miranda down on a table and unwrapped his cape to have a look at her wound a little bit better.

“Oh my ……” Gasped Antonino as he saw the large gash on Miranda’s chest. “Mother, I think you might like to look after Miranda, as I don’t know how to look after a wound like this.”

Caterina had a quick look at the wound before she went and quickly got some bandages and some medicines as well as some water and a clean cloth.

“Look after your father for me please Antonino.” Caterina said as she took off Miranda’s top and cleaned up the wound before wrapping a bandage around her.

“Yes ma’am.” Antonino said as he looked after Alfonso’s thigh wound carefully.

Caterina made sure Miranda was alright before she looked after the Antonino.

“I am fine mother, it’s just a scratch.”

“Don’t you act like that young man, you’re wounded and that’s that.”

“Fine…” sighed Antonino.

Alfonso chuckled knowingly, never, ever bring the wrath of Caterina down on you.

After looking after Antonino’s shoulder Caterina then picked up Miranda and carried her up to her bedroom. “Rest well my child.” She lay Miranda down on her bed and laid the blanket over her before leaving the room.

I woke up slowly to see the face of a young boy looking at me.

“Are you okay miss? He asked.

“I think so.”

I sat up and looked at him, my chest hurting a little. “Who are you?”

“I am Ezio, and you?” Said Ezio as he smiled kindly at me.

“I’m Miranda.”

I smiled a bit and he smiled back causing me to blush a little.

“Ezio? Where are you hiding?” Adelina as she came into my room. “Miranda, you’re awake! How do you feel?”

“I’m a little sore but otherwise I am fine.” I said.

“That’s good to know. And Ezio, what do you think you’re doing in here?”

“N... n... nothing Madonna.” Ezio said, looking very frightened. “I... I was just saying hello to Miranda.”

“Alright then. Seeing as Miranda’s awake you can stay here with her and you too can get to know each other a little bit better.” Adelina said with a little smile. “And if you need anything just come and ask me.”

“Okay and thank you Madonna.” Ezio said.

“It is not a problem and please call me Adelina.”

“Yes, Adelina.”

Adelina smiled before she left the room and thought, “those two will become good friends.”

I looked at the bookshelf in her room that had her odd assortment of, well toys and books, but mostly books.

Ezio walked over to it and picked up a book, I watched as he flipped through the book before putting it away.

“So, where do you live, Ezio?”

“I live in Florence with my family.”

“Okay, may I ask what you are doing in Venice?”

“I came here with my father, he came to visit your father but were going back to Florence in a few days.”

“Okay. So, do you like Venice?”

“It’s a nice city.”
