Thanks to all of the comments, especially from the staff. I wasn't expecting the Staff to like the Fanfiction, but it's great that you guys do!
Anyway, here's the next chapter:
Chapter II: The Killing Machine and the Mad Priest.
Hakuro walked up to the throne of Eskatia ever so casually and knelt before her. He spoke ever so casually, "I am terribly sorry to be tardy, some filth decided to impede my path on my way here. Anyway, you wished to see me, my lady?" Eskatia nodded with a smirk, "I don't doubt it..." Eskatia snaps her fingers and a dark entity seeps in through the walls. It speaks in a screechy voice that would put nails to a chalkboard to shame, "You called for me, my lady?" Eskatia nodded, "Yes, it seems Hakuro ran into a roadblock on his way to the castle. I need you to... 'take out the garbage', as it were."
The dark entity nodded, "Yes, my lady. It will be done... vwee hee hee..." The dark entity merged with a shadow behind Eskatia's throne and vanished. Annarose giggled a little, "Shades are good little pawns, wouldn't you say so, LeBeau?" Suddenly LeBeau walks out from behind a tapestry near Annarose. Hakuro stands up quickly and prepares to draw his cane-sword at LeBeau. At seeing this, LeBeau starts running at Hakuro ready to throw a punch with his augmented left arm. Before they connect, Eskatia shouts at them, "Enough, you two! You are in the presence of the Duchess of Crest! How dare you start combat before me without my permission!?"
Hakuro faced Eskatia and knelt again, "But my lady, this man is LeBeau the Killing Machine! He is famous for laying entire villages to waste just because of a few awkward stares! This man cannot be allowed near you because of his reckless behavior!" Eskatia nodded to Annarose as the brilliant strategist labeled the Chaos Lady stood up from her chair and walked toward LeBeau. "The Crest Research and Development as developed a cybernetic collar to put around LeBeau's neck to allow me to... 'control' his power." With this said, Hakuro then nodded, "I see. I apologize for my actions, my lady."
Eskatia then addressed Hakuro, "Rise, Hakuro. My most loyal assassin needs not kneel before me." Hakuro, hearing this, rises back to his feet, "So, my lady. Why have you called me here before you this afternoon?" Eskatia smirks a bit, "You and LeBeau are to head to the Wizard Kingdom of Regus and bring me the head of a noble there by the name of Jeremiah D'Orange. He is attempting to rally the Falkow forces to unleash a surprise attack against General Dical's flank with knowledge given to him by a spy who infiltrated Dical's unit. Your mission is to kill this man. However, he is under heavy guard in the eastern district of Regus. You know what that means."
Hakuro groaned a little, "Vordore..." Not knowing what Hakuro meant, LeBeau asks Hakuro, "Who's Vordore? Some kinda warrior for hire?" Hakuro looked at LeBeau and responded, "Vordore is the strategist of the entire Regus army. He and his personal guard of the most powerful wizards in all of Regus all reside in the east district in a virtually impenetrable stronghold. Not only that, but Vordore has knowledge of a powerful spell that allows all of his allies share the strength of the ancients, amplifying their powers dramatically."
LeBeau cocked his head, "That's an interesting power. But I'm strong enough to take them all down without your help!" Hakuro scoffed, "If her majesty and the Chaos Lady thought you could do it on your own, why was there need to contact me as well? You need my help as much as I need your help, trash!" LeBeau got rather angry at this, "Who are you calling trash!? I bet even a shade could kill you with little effort, you whelp!" Hakuro and LeBeau started to fight again, when Eskatia butted in again, "Enough! If I knew we would need someone to separate you two form your babbling, I would have sent for someone to go with you as a third-"
Annarose interrupted, "Sorry for interrupting, your majesty, but I knew this would happen and took the liberty of adding a third person to go with these two. He is a Mad Priest named Lloyd. Please treat him with the utmost courtesy as he is a dear friend of mine and a powerful ally."
Hakuro and LeBeau stopped fighting, faced Annarose with irate faces, and nodded. They both knew that going against the Chaos lady meant to be signing a warrant to their own fate worse than death, even more so than the Duchess herself. They both left the great hall and headed out of the Castle where, sure enough, the Mad Priest was waiting for him. He looked like all Mad Priests, Angel Wings that looked like they were dipped in blood, cryptic tattoos on his face, slicked back hair, and that black coat. They both walked over to him as he seemed lost in thought, "Are you the Mad Priest called Lloyd?"
The man looked up to see Hakuro and LeBeau. He nearly doubled over in surprise. "Err... y-yes! Sorry about that! I was thinking about the inner workings of one of my random devices. I doubt you want to hear about it, but here goes. It generates alpha waves to transmogrify-" LeBeau grabbed him by his left wing and started dragging him, "Yeah yeah, I don't want to hear about it. Let's get going..." Hakuro couldn't help but chuckle a bit at Lloyd's reaction to this, as he seemed quite flustered, "A-AAH! LET ME GO, YOU BRUTE! AAAAHHHH!!" LeBeau just groaned a little and kept dragging him by his wings as Hakuro just walked behind them both casually as they made their way towards the gate out of Crest Castle Town, causing a large scene and attracting the attention of all of the locals, though they all knew of LeBeau and Hakuro's reputations and just avoided them.
Now they were all headed towards the Wizard Kingdom of Regus for their first mission together, but first they would head to General Dical's regiment to get information. Until next time, fellow Iczers!
