ok here is all parts + 7 and 8 (lol i have written so much am now getting lost at where i am at lol)
'The Silent Singer' Part 1:
She crept silently down the corridor, darkness surronding her, going on memory alone. Turning towards the last door one her right, she heard a noise. in complete stillness, like all godd 'sing's' do in these situations, she listened. No other noise followed and so she contiuned with her mission. Pulling a specially made hair pin out, she picked the lock on the door. A soft 'click' and she was in. Now all she had to do was find 'The Book' and get out. Silently, she crept along the aisle till she came to the 'Forbidden' Section. She heard a shout, and then running feet. She grabbed 'The Book' from it's stand and turned to run, looking back over her shoulder. . .
"Shh, i promise i wont hurt you if u keep quiet and tell me what your doing with that book"
Kiera was not a normal, common born child. Both her parents had died during the Winter War of 18 he, Her father as one of the forced soldiers, and her mother in child birth. She was born a twin, though where he was now nobody knows. She was sent to the castle, as an orphan, to learn to become a maid. She worked at the palace for many years, learning certain skills. She showed an apatude for Sewing, and so became a semstress at the age of 14. She never enjoyed it though, and it was this hate that lead her, eventually, to the organisation called SING.
Now, to understand SING, you need to understand the events of the past 15 years in Algaria. The last king to rule, King Theases, was murdered 15 years ago. No one knew who did it, and no one knew why. Sure he had enemies, but he hadn't had any close to home. It was not good timing. The king had no son, and no wife either. the land was through into Turmoil, with no one knowing who was to rule next. And so, the Governing Body of Algaria was creating. This was a group of corrupt men who had been throw out recently by the king. It is believed that one of these men killed the king. Now, SING was created, it is believed, by one of the kings closest friends, who was called the Knight of White. SING is the organisation who wishes to put a proper Koing back on the throne. You see, it is believed that a young lady living in Algaria gave birth to a boy who is the kings son. SING is an organisation of spys, for lack of a better word, though they do much more and much less. They are looking for a book, believed to be the kings diary, as well as many other things. It was this book that Keira was sent to steal.
Keira joined SING at the age of 15, when she was caught by one of it's hirers sneaking out of her dorm after hours. When questioned by him, he found out that she had been out for hours, and no one had realised. He also found out that she had done this many times to explore the castle and had gone to places which were forbidden. Seeing he didn't want to hurt her, she became much more talkative, and explained that she was one of the orphan girls who worked in the castle. He asked her to join, and it is here that our story really starts, with her first week of training at the secret SING training centre. . .
"Come you lot get up!!! classes start in 15!!!!"
I rolled out of bed. I cant remember signing up for anything like this. When Alec caught me and told me about this i thought it would be good. Like, giving something back to the country? But instead, I lose 6 weeks of work and get shipped off here. I have not even been here 3 days and already i have been yelled at and thrown on my bottom to many times to count!!! and the bruises!!! You wouldn't believe how many I have!!! at least i have that cream that one of the women gave me ages ago. so it doesn't hurt as much.
"Come on Newbie!! Get going!!! if you aint there to eat in 15 you will miss out!"
Argh! bloody James!!! who would ever have made him a supervisor? he's so annoying and so strict and so up himself!!! i wish someone would throw him over the watch tower wall! And who says 'aint' anymore? why cant he use proper grammer? is aren't you idiot AREN'T!!!
"Hey Ke-Ke dont look so sad. It gets better i promise"
"I hope so Alec, i really do. Because, at the moment i am resenting you for ever talking me into this!"
"Well, i promise. And if it doesn't, you can throw me off the watch tower wall like i know you want to do with James!"
"I do not want to do that to James!"
"Of course you. Ke-Ke, i've known you for weeks now. I am pretty sure i have your moods down pat"
Stupid blind Alec. How is he so good at reading peoples moods when he cant even see them!!! Sign. Deep breath. You like Alec remember? he's your friend
"Here you go Ke-Ke. have something to eat. Its hand to hand stuff today"
"you joining in?"
"No. I have to go do some buisness. But i will be back for tea and i should be back in time to help you with your spell work"
"Thank you Alec. Its not that i dont like it. Its new thats all. I mean, I knew people had magic, I just never guessed that one of those people was me!!"
"Well, it is so believe it! You better run along now. You will start soon"
"Ok Alec. See you later!!!"
"Ok you yellow bellies!!! It's time to learn Hand to Hand combat. This is our main defence here at SING. It is much easier to carry around your hands and feet then it is to carry around an open weapon right? Yes right!!! and for those of you who like open weapons, well, you wont have them HA HA HA. *cough cough* anyhow lets get started. The first thing you will start with is the land. When you get thrown or knocked of your feet you have got to be able to land correctly. I have two seniors here, Ronald and Gary, who are going to teach you how to land. Ronald, if you could do the throw and Gary, could you do the land please?
"Sure thing master George!"
"Boys, just do the drill"
Look at the two holligans. How did they even get picked? Oh well at least they look like their having fun. Wait, i think i know them. yes! their both squires at the palace!!! I learnt the land of them a couple of years ago when we were al taught how to defend ourselves while they were looking for the masked grabber!!! I can do this land i think. . .
"Ok, so as you can see, Ron has grabbed Gary by the shoulder and the waist so that he can throw him over his hip. Ladies, this is the best throw for you as you are not as strong. Boys, We will later show you a over head and over shoulder throw. Now, as you see Ron throw Gary, Gary curls into a ball and does a flip in the air. You will not normally be able to do that. Now as he lands, he slaps his hands on the ground, curls his head in and does a roll before coming back onto his feet in a ready stance ready to take whatever comes next. Thank you boys"
"at your service Master"
"We are here to serve"
"Alright, Alright. Now ladies, the throw is the hardest for you, so we will get one of the boys to show you. . ."
I could see Ron looking at me. And when he interupted master George, i knew he knew who i was.
"Actually Master, there is a lady here who already knows the land"
"oh really now is there Ron? And how would you know that?"
"PLease sir, they taught me a while ago at the palace"
Traitor Tounge!!! why couldn't you just be quiet?
"Your Alecs? the one from the palace?"
"Yes sir. I was taught with all the ladies at the palace when they were still looking for the masked grabber. Ronald and Gary here taught me this land themselves"
"Well, I think you will find that this is a bit different to the one you Learnt. . ."
"Actually master George, it's the same. We had to teach them this one because we didn't know the others"
"Well, if she already knows it and can do it without any stuff up's, then lets see her do it!"
Why? Why did Ron and Gary have to reconise me? Alec had said that i was the only one who's had any training and that the others wouldn't of had any so i should not show off. And what would you call this? showing off!!! Oh well here it goes!
"Ok Ron, you may-as-well do the toss"
"over head or over hip Master?"
"Over hip. She might not be able to land the other one"
I glared at Ron, hoping he would get that i didn't want him to tell the master that i was the best in the group and had learned all throws. He seemed to get it as he stopped whatever he was going to say next. He bent down and grapped my shoulder and my hip, before flinging me over his own hip. He let go a lot more force then he should of, and i knew that the Master would know. I let myself go in the air a bit, before flipping and coming down on my feet.
"That was very good newbie. I see you can even do an advance landing"
Advance Landi. . .? [censored]! i was just going to do the rool!!! i guess all the extra practise just made it second nature to do the land on my feet.
"Yes sir. I was taught that as well as all other lands that squires Gary and Ronald knew"
"She was the best in our group Master George"
"Was she now? Well, it seems she will need to put up with the older students and learn the kicks and punches. . ."
"Master, she already knows the basic ones. When we taught her, she learnt everything that we knew up to the level we were at at that stage. Do you remember everything Keira?"
I couldn't answer. I cant believed they were saying this!!! they had taught me everything? No, they must be joking. I realised that they were all staring at me and that i was looking out to space like a stunned mullet.
"Ye. . .Yes. I remember everything. I kept practising like you told us to Gary. I didn't want to get caught off guard"
"Well, it seems that Alec made a good find when he found you! Thats all for now Student. But i would like you to report to the head masters office later. You are dismissed for the rest of this lesson"
Great. Now i got to go see the head master!! Why couldn't they just keep their mouth shut. I trudged up the hill. My day couldn't get any worse!!!
Ok, so right at this moment i am walking to the head masters office. Why you ask? Well, I'm not really sure. Apart from the fact that i ended up doing what Alec told me NOT to do (i.e; show off) I dont actually i think i did anything wrong. I mean, is being good at something a crime now? I thought that if you were good at something that that was a good thing? Ok here i am. Oh please, oh please, oh please dont send me back!!
"Ok Keira, you can go through now."
I just nod. Was else could i do? I am terrifed!!!
"Take a sit"
Oh no i am in trouble!!! i can just tell by his voice!!! please just dont send me back
"Do you know why your here Keira?"
"Do you think your in trouble?
"I'm not sure sir"
"Your not sure? Why dont you Elaborate for me?"
"Well sir. I do not remember doing anything wrong. But I have only been here for a few days and the rules are so different that I could of done something wrong but i cant remember if I did so i'm not really sure sir"
"Well, you do not need to worry Keira. You are not in trouble. I just wished to ask you some questions"
Questions? what sort of Questions? why would he bring me all the way up here just to ask me questions?
"Yes Keira, Questions. How much do you know about our organisation?"
"Only what Alec has told me sir"
"Alec is the boy who discovered you?"
"Yes sir. He caught me sneaking around the palace"
"I see. And, Did he tell you what our aim is?"
"Aim sir? No, I dont think so. Not that I can remember"
"Ok Then. Keira, how much do you remember about your parents?"
"my parents sir? Not much. The only thing i have left of them is This locket"
"Do you remember their names? their jobs? where you were born?"
"No sir. I know my mother was called Alexandria and my father was called Timothy i think but i now nothing of their jobs or where they lived."
"Your parents were very important people to this organisation Keira"
"they were. . . WAIT! you knew my parents?"
"No, Not me Keira. The White Knight"
"The white knight? I'm afraid i dont understand sir"
"No, you wouldn't have started that class yet."
"So, is it because of my parents that i am so good at hand-to-hand combat and being invisible?"
"Yes, both your parents your formidible warriors Keira. Your Mother was famous for her fighting, as was your father"
"They were??? why didn't i know about this?"
"I was only informed the other day by My lord myself Keira. He saw your mother in you"
"My. . .My mother?"
"I'm sorry sir this is a lot to digest"
"Yes, i suppose it is my dear. Well, because of your skills I am placing you in some advance classes. Being a Palace maid you would already know how to read and write?"
"Very Well. Then I shall place you in Alecs year. Now i must warn you, You will find some things difficult. You will also have trouble with some of the other students. If they get to much, just come let me know"
"I'm sure i'll be fine sir"
"Very well, run along now or you will miss mid-day meal"
"Of course sir thank you!!"
"You will start classes after lunch with Alecs year. I ask him to find you a timetable and anything else you may need"
"Of course sir!"
"Right O. Run along dear"
"Of course sir"
I looked back only once, while i was closing the door. He was staring out of his window, but in his hand i saw a picture. It was of a women and a little baby.
I walked along, not really knowing where I was going. I somehow still managed to end up in the eating hall. At least my feet knew where to take me!
Suddenly i felt a bump. It was Alec. I realised he had been calling my name. He looked at me worriedly. But it wasn't really him I was taking notice of. It was the tall, dark haired boy slightly behind Alec. I stared at him, knowing i had seen him somewhere before.
"Keira, are you alright"
"Just. . . Fine"
"Lets get you sitting down"
Alec walked me to a table. He sat me down, sitting opposite me. The tall boy sat next to him. I just kept on staring.
"Are you alright my dear?"
He talked!!! Oh stupid me of course he did! I am staring at him like a pig with no brain!
"Yes I'm fine thanks. Alec, who is this?"
"Oh so now you can talk! This is Johnie. Johnie, this is the girl i was telling you about, Keira"
"Ah, the one with the hand-to-hand skills. Hello :)"
"Yes, hello Keira, nice to see you noticing me!"
'Sorry, but you wont believe what just happened!"
"I hope it's something big, otherwise you have no excuse at staring off into space!"
"I was joining your grade!!! and thats not all!"
"The head master knew about my parents!!! He said that they were part of this organisation before!!! He said thats where i got my skills from!!! can you believe it??? I have important parents!!"
"I know. He also said that you were to get me a new timetable, and that you were to help me get anything else i may need"
"Sure sure but did he say anything else?"
"No. He didn't know exactly who my parents were. He just said that some 'White Knight' Knew who they were"
"The white knight knew your parents!!!"
"Yes he did Johnie. But i dont see how that is important"
"The white knight is the founder of this whole organisation, Keira, he is the old kings closest advisors"
"wow, really? I didn't know! I suppose things like that aren't talked about up at the Pal. . ."
"Look who it is, Miss 'I'm the best' from the Palace!!"
"Shut it Thyler. Your just jealous"
"Oh, just little miss Keira need the blind to stand up for her now?"
"I dont need anyone to stand up for me, Thyler!"
"Well, I hear you coming up to our grade. Nice, a new bunching bag, now i wont have to use you hey blindy. . ."
"Thats enough Thyler, be gone before i smash you!"
Wow! Johnie stood up now, and i noticed he was much taller and more muscled then they lean Thyler. I watched in awe as Thyler shrak and backed away.
"You better watch out Newbie. I dont like people like you?"
"What People Hmphd dggfu f. . ."
"You should slience yourself little one. You should never evoke a battle"
"I wasn't going to say anything"
"Ke-Ke, I know you better then that! And you were, Now come on You still need to get a timetable and some weapons for classes today and we will get the rest of your stuff tomorrow"
"I can help if you wish?"
"That would be greatly apreciated Jon. Thank you"
I followed them. I had two protecters. One who was my best friend. And one who was three times the size of me. I hope all the people in their fourth year weren't the size of Johnie and Thyler, or have the skill level of Alec, for if they did, I was in BIG trouble.
