First Encounter:
The ground was soaked with blood and covered in dead bodies. The sound of steel hitting steel ringed through the battlefield. Men fell to the ground one by one on both sides. Most deaths were caused by blades and steel bolts, but some were caused by blazing fires set off by the random saboteur or cannon fire. The sweet smell of blood and earthy fragrance of smoke lingered in the air. Knox stared at the battlefield easily cutting down any man who got too close to him. He observed the massacre with resentment, it was blocking him from his mark. He came only to assassinate, being stopped by an unexpected war was not part of the plan. He spat at the ground, blood and sweat falling into his furrowed brow. He squinted as he surveyed for his target, nothing, "dammit," he muttered. He enjoyed watching the fighting soldiers fall to one another's blades, it was the only good thing to come out of this, he needn't get his own revenge now. He couldn't leave though, no matter how much he wanted too. He had to at least try and find his victim. He charged into the battle slicing men on both sides down as he ran, dodging the attacks with ease. He was close to where the city council building was, he knew the coward would flee back into the closest shelter. He was about to pick up the pace and get to the door but he stopped in his tracks as he saw a shadow of a person slip through the doors. His eyes were flooded with blood and sweat so he couldn't make out anything but a blurry outline of a person. Reluctantly he charged towards the doors, cutting down royal guards as he got closer and then slammed through the doors. He saw a flash of red and blue and then he was slammed against the wall with a knife at his throat. In front of him was a woman in her early 20's. Red hair caked with blood, skin as pale as snow and covered in dirt. Her green eyes were mesmerizing. Her lips were red and luscious. A scar on her left brow went down to her cheek. He stared her in the eyes, wondering why she hadn't killed him yet, she looked completely capable of killing him without thought. He had never met such a gorgeous opponent, he had no idea what to say at this moment but that didn't stop him. "Um...you gonna kill me or stand there like an idiot?" he said dumbly staring at her lips. "You really know how to talk to a woman, don't you?" she retorted with a hint of a smile on her lips. Knox took this opportunity to push her back and send her tumbling away. She quickly righted herself with a backflip and then flashed out of existence. She reappeared behind Knox in a spinning jump and threw several daggers at him. Most of the daggers missed, except for two one which hit him in the shoulder and the other one hit him in the thigh. He groaned in pain but kept moving, dodging dagger after dagger. He left a blood trail in his wake, but did not loose speed. He jumped, ducked, flipped over, slid under, and tumbled pass obstacles and knives. She seemed un-targetable, but every once in a while one of the blades he threw back would graze her uncovered skin leaving a bloody scratch. They were each hanging in there, but were growing tired with each second. They seemed as if they were in a never ending dance of blades and blood. After an hour more of there waltz of death they both backed away, warily letting up, covered in wounds. The girl was the first to leave, swiftly delivering a dagger to Knox's knee causing him to fall down in pain, and then jog-limping out the door. Knox wouldn't let her get away that easy, so her ran after her into the fray.
