Chaos's Assassin

By Tamara Brink

Adventure / Fantasy

Chapter 1

Name: Lucas Nadir

Age: 320

Sex: Zanotion

Location: Planet 5,206

Hobbies: killing children

Crimes: 40 children dead on planet 5,206

Sentence for crimes: kill on sight.

I looked up from the folder I had been reading from, about Lucas Nadir. He, like many others before him, was my target. Till he dies of course. I collected all the information I had on him and walked out of my room. Out in the corridors of Chaos's palace I encountered many of my friends as I walked towards my destination.

"Hey Omega!" I turned to see a warrior jogging up to me and recognized him as my friend Jack.

"Yes?" I asked

"Have you seen Rebecca? I need to talk to her."

I smirked knowingly.

"Talk to her, huh?" I asked raising an eyebrow, "yeah I've seen her, stopped me a while back, said she was looking for you."

He blushed and my smirk widened.

"Did you see where she went?" He asked me, nervously rubbing the back of his neck.

"Nah, wasn't paying attention, sorry."

He frowned.

"Alright then, catch you later Omega." He said. I chuckled as he walked away.

"Bye." I said at his retreating back.

"Playing matchmaker again Omega?" A voice said from behind me. I turned to see a man in a black pinstriped suit with a tie walking towards me. This man looked about 20 with hair as dark as the void and dark eyes with constellations swirling around them staring playfully at me.

"If I am?" I asked him, my smile widening as I raised an eyebrow.

"Then it better work." He answered almost teasingly, those two should just kiss already."

I let, out a laugh at his choice of words. Chaos always had a way of getting to me. Yes, I said I said Chaos. King of the universe and all. Only he barely acted like it. He was always a child on the inside.

"You about to set out to kill Lucas?" He asked me.

"Yeah, need to get passed the boundaries first."

"Of course, I'll leave you to it then."

He left back the way he came and I continued my journey to the front gates. Once past the gates I would be able to teleport to planet 5,206.

"Wait! Omega!"

I turned to see a small girl running up to me.

"Hey Lily, where are your parents?"

"Mommy and Daddy are on a mission." she replied, smiling.

Lily's parents were fellow warriors that joined around the same time as I did. Every warrior in Chaos Army had started out as a student in the school they have here, I was no exception, the only reason I'm not a warrior but an Assassin instead is because I was asked after my final exams at the school 26 years ago.

"what's going on Lils?" I asked her, kneeling down so I was her height.

"Where are you going?" she asked me.

"I've got to go on a mission."

"When will you be back?" she inquired, her big brown eyes glistening.

"I doubt I'll be long," I answered, "just a couple of days."

"come back quickly!" she blurted out, wrapping her arms around me in a hug.

"I will." I told her, hugging back and kissing her on her forehead. Lily meant a lot to me, she was practically family seeing as her parents had deemed me her godfather.

I picked her up and carried her to the gates. Once there we hugged once more and i teleported to planet 5,206.


it had been two days.

I had been tracking down Lucas Nadir and had discovered his hide out to be under a school in planet 5,206. I was on my way there now. I jumped from roof to roof in an attempt to get there fast, after all, I had promised Lily I wouldn't take long.

Sliding down one of the pips of the school I stopped about ten meters from the ground and jumped through an open window feet first... straight into a class full of Zanotion students.

The teacher backed up against wall in fright. Before anyone could scream I pressed my finger to my lips, practically begging them to keep quiet. They didn't scream, probably out of terror though. Which didn't help with my self esteem. I slowly and quietly stepped out of the classroom and into a long hall. Quickly I started walking down the hall towards the staircase at the end, trying to keeps as quiet as I could, doing my best not to arouse any suspicion from the other classes.

After running down two staircases i finally found the basement. It was rather small, around about the size of an apartment. The place wasn't very fancy, it was decorated like a normal house with a tattered couch and broken TV in one end and and a small bed and and a closet in the other. There was a kitchen to my right and a small bathroom to my left. But the most disturbing thing had to be the small pile of stinking bodies dumped in one corner of the small room.

I quickly shrunk into the shadows as I heard the pitter patter of someone's footsteps as they walked across the threshold. A man walked out. He had short blond hair cut like they do in the army and murky brown eyes. He was wearing ragged brown clothes smothered in blood and his shoe's trailed blood behind him. which  would exclaim the deep crimson footprints scattered around the house. All in all, the place freaked me out. I shifted in the darkness trying to creep my way around him to sneak attack from the back.

Lucas Nadir turned his head and stared right at me.
