Following her master Lord Silver Mask's orders to infiltrate the Pars Royal Capital of Ecbatana, (Name) was waiting for the right signal to strike in order for her master and his army to enter. 'My master is waiting for my signal to strike, he will reward me with something, and everything will be his for the taking.'
*a few hours ago*
A few hours before the invasion began, (Name) is with hr master Silver Mask for preparations for the invasion. "Where is my sword, (Name)?" "It's right here, Master." She had his sword in her hands for him to give to. He took it from her and draws it. "Only in about two seconds, I'm quite surprised." "Indeed." He then puts the sword back in its' sheath and begins to worry.
"The kingdom will be ours, but someone might be free once I claim the throne. Yet, they're still blind..." She then wrapped her arms around his neck and he faced her. "Focus on the invasion of the Capital, and you'll get what you want." She then took his face in her hands and kiss him gently, then she pulls away. "And try not to worry about the past." She then kisses him again.
*back to the present*
Waiting for her chance to strike, a signal for her master's men was all she could see. 'Now's my chance!' She then removes her disguise and get ready for her assassination job. First she stabbed a guard through the back with a dagger, then a second guard in the stomach. Despite her hands being covered in blood, she keeps on killing the guards.
Then she come to the next guards by covering his mouth, and placing the dagger against his throat. "Hey, no offense taken." She then slices his throat open and he falls over, dead in front of her. She lets out a breath and has one more guard to kill, the one in front holding his spear in one hand, the right one.
With her speed, she slices the guard's right arm and he falls over to the ground. He wonders what was going on around him. "What?! GRAAAHHH!!! MY RIGHT HAND!! IT'S GONE!! IT'S GONE!!" He then sees her with a dagger in her hand, which is covered in blood. She continues to watch him scream his head off.
"My right hand...! My right hand...! I need it...! Or I... I cannot call for backup... I won't be able to have them fight this woman assassin for me...! My right hand! My right hand! My right hand! My right hand! MY RIGHT HAND!!" He then looks at his hand and spear. "Hand... My right hand..."
He about to use his left hand to grab his fallen right one, but she stabs him in the stomach then slices his throat open. She then lights a torch and signals the Lusitanian soldiers and her master of her successful assignment. "Success." And with that, the Lusitanian army began their invasion on the Capital.
*A few hours later*
After meeting with her master and the Lusitanian soldiers along with Kharlan, (Name) now walks behind her master with the soldiers in the underground cavern after her successful assassination of the guards inside the capital. After for what seems like a while, a hooded woman suddenly appeared, appearing to be the Queen of Pars.
"Hn-hn. My, what have we here? I never thought I would happened upon the esteemed Lady Queen of Pars in a place such as this. You saved me the trouble of looking for you." Silver Mask then walks right up to her. "It appears that you and Andragoras are better matched than I'd imagined. One abandoned his men to flee the battlefield, the other abandoned her city to hide away underground. What's become of the stoic dignity of those who sit on the throne?"
"Who are you? What do you want?" "Who am I? Why I am the man who would bring true justice to Pars." The woman then sees Kharlan there with the soldiers. "Lord Kharlan? What are you doing here with him?" (Name) then notices that the woman is not the Queen of Pars. "'Lord Kharlan', did you call him?! You are no queen at all!!" He removes her hood and she moves back in fear.
"I dispose of those for whom I have no use." And with a snap of his fingers, (Name) then appears behind the woman and brings out a rope. She loops it around her neck and tightens her grip on it, while the woman was struggling and choking. "The only person you have to blame is yourself, you chose the wrong master."
(Name) kept on choking the woman until finally she tightens the rope too much and the woman's neck breaks, killing her instantly. She then releases her and she falls over dead, then she returns back to her position with the soldiers. "Let's go. Before the night is out, we would have thrown the palace into confusion from within. With any luck, the real queen will still be waiting inside its' walls."
"Just a moment." They then see a young man called Gieve there. "I don't know who you are beneath that mask, but you just murdered a beautiful woman. There's no telling what sort of reward she might have granted me had she lived." He then covered the woman's corpse. "Why not remove your mask, show me your face. But maybe that is your face. Does mercury run through your veins instead of blood, changing your very flesh?"
(Name) then growled at his words and gets ready to walk towards him. "How dare you speak that way to--!" Kharlan then stops her way from getting any further. "Please do not interfere, madame." "But that man just insulted the--" "Please do not interfere." Despite this, she gives in to his words. "Right."
The two then draw their blades and fight with Silver Mask having the upper hand to strike him, but he moves away. But when he was going to finish him off, he tosses his lantern to the torch to create a blaze, making Silver Mask look at it. His eyes then widen in fear at the flames, remembering his traumatic past.
(Name) then gasped at this along with Kharlan. "No!" She then brings out her dagger and slices the older off the torch, then tosses it into the air with her. Then she kicks the flame into the water, dying the flame out. Then she lands to her master's side, while the soldiers came behind them and Kharlan defending him.
"Are you going to be alright?" Silver Mask then calms down after this traumatic experience. "I'm Fine. I leave swatting this pesky fly to you. We shall continue ahead." "Yes sir!" With that, the three then walk off, leaving the soldiers to deal with Gieve themselves. "Farewell then, Silver Mask. It's been fun, 'till we meet again."
*a few minutes later*
After that encounter with Gieve, (Name) began to worry of her master. "Are you sure you'll be okay, Master?" "Of Course I'll be fine, don't worry about me. Just focus on continuing ahead." "Yes, Master." 'Anything for my master is to focus on the task in conquering the Capital.'
(And that's that! Now keep in mind, that I based this off of season 1 episode 6 of The Heroic Legend of Arslan. Keep in mind, I haven't seen the series before, not even read the light novel or the manga or watch the OVA. But I figured that I based this off of it. So, bye)
