Note: This is part 1 out of all the other parts I'm going to put up.
The outfit you're pretty much going to wear the whole time is red and blue, not camouflage,black combat boots, and no armor (your uniform is not baggy also it's kind of fancyish). It pretty much takes place in Assassin's Creed 2 :I.
People were rushing around and prepping stuff up, Ezio wondered why. So he went to Leonardo (that was so far to travel, he had to steal tons of horses and kill off too many guards to count to get there) and ask because he pretty much knew no one in Florence.
"Oh! You didn't know Rome's military is visiting here?" Leonardo asked.
"I never knew we even had a military in Rome."
"Well, they're coming back from the Parthian Empire; they had a war there you didn't know?"
"No, I guess I never paid attention.."
"Well, since you're strong, could you help me carry some things to organize a bit?"
You are (Full Name) and you are the captain of Rome's military and also a soldier. The reason why you joined the military was for vengeance and freedom (you'll find out soon e w e). You tightened your blue gloves and loaded yourself with a few pistols encase if anything goes berserk. You looked out the window of the ship, you were only ten minutes away from Rome according to your calculation. You sighed and lined up your soldiers.
"Gentleman! Ten-hut!" You said in a pretty loud tone.
"Hut!" Every soldier said at once.
"We are all visiting our hometown, Rome, I highly expect you to behave and not shoot until I tell you to. Got it?!"
"Mam' yes mam'!"
"Good. Now, walk in two single-file lines and stick together until I give you permission to split up."
"Mam' yes mam'!"
Ezio walked around and saw tons of vines of white roses everywhere, he wondered out of every flower in the world, why white roses? Not a single one of them were red or pink, just white.
"Everyone, clear up for the military!" The guards said as the townspeople obeyed. A few ships came in and groups of soldiers came out wearing red and blue. He also noticed the captain (who was the only lady in the whole military) with one (eye color)ed eye, but the other one was a glass eye, it looked like it was a blind eye, the lady still looked decent on the contrary of her "blind" eye. There was many things to wonder about her.
The soldiers lined up in two rows and stood up straight with their rifles pointed up and their attention alerted as the captain walked by checking them over and avoiding eye contact with anyone else. She stopped at one guard and straightened up his uniform a bit and continued to walk to the next five and positioned his rifle pointing more upward, matching the others. Ezio noticed that she didn't yell or say anything, she handled it well with out any force; she was kind of gentle.
"I would like to announce you the military of Rome and our appreciation of hard work and courage they've done to protect our country!" Everyone clapped and cheered, the captain was slightly smiling, but the guards were still alert. The captain whispered to the closest soldier next to her and he told the other soldier next to them something as two others listened and soon they all ruffled each other's hair and nudged each others shoulders, smiling. I guess she wanted them to have fun too.
Everyone was having fun and drinking champagne, while you were alone, admiring the white roses from the vines. They were absolutely gorgeous and smelled wonderful. You always loved white roses since you were a little girl and your mom picked them for you.
'Mommy! What are you going to do with those flowers?' A younger you asked.
'I'm going to make flower crowns, do you want one, (name)?'
'Yes please!' You said as your mother sat down on the grass and tied the roses together into a crown, gently putting a crown on your fragile, little head .
'You look beautiful, dear!'
'Hehe, thank you, mommy!'
'You're very welcome.' She said as she sat you down in her lap.
You felt like those were just yesterday's memories...You sighed and continued to admire the roses, being oblivious about Templar's kinghts. When you heard a little pebble skid across the ground, you knew something was wrong. You then quickly got out your pistol and shot the knight without hesitation. The townspeople must've heard it, but you were pretty far away from them and it most likely blended in with the sounds of the fireworks. More knights came out from behind the shadows, equipped with metal armor and sharp weapons. You were out-numbered; but that didn't stop you from shooting more straight in the heart. Scarlet soaked their armor as they slowly fell down in the gravel, staining that in some scarlet too. You closed your eyes and opened them to see a man in white robes five yards away from you. You flinched a bit and aimed the pistol towards the man.
"I'm not one of them." The man said, his accent assured you that he was Italian. You had no idea how to respond, it was like his words silenced you. You slowly put down your pistol; you knew he was an assassin because of the white robes and the arm bracers that contained hidden blades.
"Were you watching me?" You questioned, slightly raising an eyebrow.
"I heard the sound of a pistol firing, does that answer your question?" He smirked a bit, "I also got a question for you; how did you
know those men are Templars?" He asked, nudging his shoulder towards the impaled knights. The pupil in your eye shrunk a little as screams echoed in your mind, body completely stiffened.
"I rather not talk about it...You can go back to whatever you're doing." You said as you turned your back, keeping a poker face. Ezio was about to talk until he was interrupted by Rosa coming his way.
"Ezio! Antonio wants to see you." She said as she ran to his side.
"Grazie, I'll be on my way.." He then disappeared with Rosa and left you standing there, back turned, collecting your thoughts. You kind of knew this man, he was Ezio Auditore da Firenze, another young assassin; you always wanted to be an assassin, but you turned to the military instead. It wasn't as bad honestly, except for the fact you're putting your future at risk, protecting the lives of innocents. Even though you have only one eye, you are one of the best shooters in the whole military and your eye coordination was amazing, like any average person..You sat on the curved, brick bench and continued to admire the white roses. You sighed as you spotted blood on some of them.
"What a shame, these roses were pretty too.." You plucked one from off the vine and smelled the flower, savoring the scent that escapes you from this cruel world.
"Sargent (Last Name)!" A soldier called to you.
"We have a problem...One of our soldiers are injured.."
"Do you know the cause of the injury?" You asked.
"All we know is that he was shot in the shoulder, it grazed part of his bone." You held back a cringe, it must hurt like hell having a bullet graze your shoulder! Also knowing the risk of major blood loss.
"How is he doing now?"
"Not so good; that's why I'm telling you."
"Alright, I'll take a look and see what I could do." You got up and left the bench, leaving the plucked rose alone on the concrete of the bricks. And a shadow looking down at you from above.
"AHHHHHH!" The soldier yelled in pain. You just picked out the bullet with nothing but tweezers within two minutes and soaked the wound with alcohol.
"Where's the bandages?" You asked.
"Here." A soldier handed you a roll as you took it and wrapped it around the soldier's shoulder, scarlet soaking it up a bit as it met the fabric. To you, blood was one of the most beautiful things in the world, but it wasn't when it was your family's...You really didn't want to think about that now; you need to focus on your soldier's right now.
"Uuugh." The injured soldier grunted as rough fabric met his wound.
"Can you move your arm?" You asked. He tried to move his arm, but then hissed in pain and put a hand on his bandaged shoulder and held his arm to his body. "You need to go home to your family, spend some time with them. Same for everyone, I think you all had enough for the day." You said as they all cleared to their homes as the wounded soldier was guided home by a friend. You sighed as you starred at your lap. Some blood was staining your uniform and you really didn't want to go back to your home; with him around, you rather camp out in the cold. Sadly, you had to...You got up and headed towards the house.
"Ezio! I'm glad to see you!" Antonio greeted him.
"You needed me?" Ezio asked. He thought about the military captain, he saw the way she immediately turned and pulled the trigger without hesitation; it could've been an innocent person! Yet he knew she had the feeling she knew them...The cautious tone she had in her voice when she saw him and her body language. She seemed to be fine without his help even, but he couldn't just leave her alone with tons of attacking knight; especially Templars..
"Ah, yes, after our previous mission that we failed...We need some supplies to get ready to battle the Templars."
"Sure, I would be glad to."
You listened in on the conversation from the wood of the 'wall' separating them from you. How did you get there? You were simply walking to your old home until you heard a voice that seemed familiar, kind of like that Ezio the woman had called for. You could feel a prick of jealousy up your spine, you never this feeling in a long time, but it didn't please you. Without thinking, you quietly walked towards the wood and put your ear to it to listen more closely.
You knew the Templar's would find out about their most well-trained knights never returning, so they thought war would be the only thing left to destroy you and your army of soldiers. Their stupidity made you smirk, you went through more wars than they ever have had, you could probably rip off their noses with two fingers.
Ezio's footsteps made you jump a little on how loud you were. Thank god you didn't hit anything.! As they all left, you stayed for another five minutes and finally stood up, bumping into something stiff. You jumped and quickly pulled out your gun, realizing it was just a leaning wooden board. You sighed and your cheeks turned a little pink from embarrassment. You put your gun back and continued on your journey to 'home'.
"What the hell are you doing here?!" Your dad scolded you. He had an angry expression on your face and didn't look happy to see you.
You sighed. "I came here because I wanted to actually feel like I'm worth something."
"Well you're worth nothing! Get out!" Those words crushed you a bit, but you didn't budge.
"Dad-" You came closer to him as he got shocked and stepped back. He hallucinated you when you were ten with your tear-stained, bloody face with your left eye ripped out of it's socket. He quickly grabbed a kitchen knife and aimed it to you.
"I told you to get out!!!" He yelled, throwing it at your face. Your eyes widened as you dodged the knife, which is now nailed to the wood of where your face would've been. You quickly ran out of the house and slammed the door behind you. You ran through the town, bumping into a few citizens out late at night and suddenly bumped into Ezio...
"Whoa there, bella, why are you such in a hurry-" He was surprised to see you again. You ran past him in full speed as you heard more footsteps behind you. Why is he following you?! He seriously can't be following you.! You turned your head to see how far he was, seeing nothing. You looked up and saw him leaping from one plank to the next. You turned the opposite direction as he was going and looked up again, still seeing him on your tail, is he seriously going to play this game with you?!
