Valerarie approaches the gates of the assassin’s guild’s gates and the two gaurds ask her what her business is. she tells them she wants to join and they ask why. she tells them she wants to be an assassin. they decide to make her a deal. they tell her if she can last one hour in the arena with one of the memebers she can join. she accepts. the gaurds open the gates and tell her she has three days to train, no more, no less. she nods and goes off to find a spot to train. once she found a spot she liked she started to train. three days later, the gaurds from the gate come find her and take her to the arena. once in the arena she sees the weapon racks on each side. she looks around and sees her opponant sitting on the other side of the arena with a bow in his lap. a really big man stand up and tells the crowd; ‘these two will fight for one hour or until one of htem dies.’ the crowd cheers and her opponant stands and goes over to on of the racks and picks up a bundle of arrows. he goes back over and sets them on the ground. Val goes over to one of her racks and a bow and a bundle of arrows. when she turns around she sees the her opponant has already drawn one of his arrows and had it aimmed at her. she quickly draws one of the arrows and loads it into the bow and draws it back but misses. her opponant fires and hits her several times. she manages to fire two shots. her opponant drops his bow and pulls out two blades and charges at her. she drops her bow and turns to the rack. she grabs two blades and turns to face her opponant again. after a brutal slashing her opponant jumps back and throw a shuriken at her. the big guy stands up and says that Val has lasted the hour. he jumps over the side of the balcony and lands a little too softly for a man his size. he walks over and signals her opponant to come over to him. he tells her that she did better than most people considering…but he stops. she asks ‘considering what?’ the man tells her ’ considering Black widow here is one of our top assassins.’ she looks at the big man and then at Black widiw and smiles a little. the big man tell her that she has every right to smile and she can join the guild. though her first mission will be with a partner. he gestures to Black widow. “now say hello to your partner.” she looks at black widow and waves a little. “hi”. Black widow doesn’t respond which makes Val a little nervous. she turns to the big man. “does he talk much?” the big man tells her no. black widow walks past her and out the gates. the big man tell Val that he’ll show her to her quarters and she follows him. he takes her to a big building and she sees Black widow sitting there with his bow. the big man leads her inside and shows her to her room. she asks him a few questions which he answers. she finds that the big mnan is the guildmaster. he turns and walks away. she gets cleaned up and goes to explore the guild area. after a while of exploring she went back to her room and climbed in bed. the next morning she wakes up to black widow standing her door way. he stared at her for a moment before she got up and came over to him. “can i help you?” he shakes his head. “first day and late..” she looks at him with a clueless look on her face. he turns and walks off. she stands there for a moment before following after him. once they were outside they met up with the guildmaster. he tells them ‘first mission come on.’ and walks off. they follow after him. they go into the mess hall to eat and after a while black widow stands up and walks away. he stops at the end of the table and motions her to her to follow. she sighs and gets up and follows him. hey walk over to the guildmaster and he tells them about their mission. thier mission is to discard of a getleman that was bothering a king. balck widow talks her to the weaponry and she asks for some weapona, armor, and hsome herbs. she notices that black widow already had a bag packed. the cleark looks at her and asks her is black widow has talked to her yet. she shakes her hand “not really.” the clerk tell her to hurry to the front gate. she grabs her bag and runs off. when she gets there black widow is paitiently waiting. the gates open and they walk out.
