In the Stars

In the Stars

He thinks about her a lot.

She is constantly on his mind, in his thoughts, and he wonders and hopes she is proud of him.

Would Ziio have wanted him to become a Templar like his father, Haytham Kenway? Would she have wanted him to help the white men? Connor doesn't know, and he never will.

A soft sigh leaves his mouth as he polishes his weapons, lost in thought.

Is she watching him right now, he wonders? Is she watching every move he makes, every decision he makes? If she is, he thinks, I hope she is proud.

Connor sets down his tomahawk, the blade glinting in the afternoon sun, and sighs, this time louder. How he wishes he knew.

His mind wanders to the time he had spent with her, fondly settling on one of his very last memories of her.

"Connor?" Ziio makes her way through their lodge, searching every corner and looking under every blanket.

"I will find you," she calls, a note of barely restrained amusement in her voice.

Three year old Connor quietly giggles with childish glee as his mother passes the blanket he is hidden under, unaware that he is there: or so he thinks.

Ziio's sharp ears catch the quiet noise as she passes the blanket, noticing the suspicious, Connor-shaped bump under it.

Silently grabbing the edges of the blanket, Ziio whips it off her now loudly giggling son.

"Gotcha!" she laughs, tickling his sides.

"Ista, Ista, please stop!" Connor manages to gasp through gales of laughter.

Smiling, Ziio complies, pulling Connor close in a rare show of affection.

"I love you, my son. You will grow up to be a great warrior," she tells him. "The spirits have sent me a dream, showing me that you will become great and strong. I do not know how, but I do know that it will come to pass."

Connor is snapped back to the present at the sound of a footstep beside him. Glancing up, he sees Achilles; the old man giving him a small smile.

"Ziio would have been proud of you," he says as if reading Connor's thoughts.

"Do...do you really think so?" Connor asks, feeling slightly hopeful that his mentor is correct.

"Yes, Connor, I really do," Achilles tells him gently.

Connor stands, reassured, and stretches. "Thank you, Achilles," Connor says, slipping his tomahawk back onto his weapons belt.

"Anytime, kid," Achilles gruffly replies.

Maybe she is watching me, he thinks optimistically. She was a good person and I am sure she joined the spirits.

Connor glances up at the sky where the sun is setting, and the first few stars are appearing.

I am sure she is watching me right now, he thinks. She is always with me, in the stars.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

Alex Reltin: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story. There isn't much more I can say about this other than amazing! Are there going to be anymore updates any time soon?I also Vote...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...
