Ancient Race Essay

1106 words - 5 pages

It was late in the evening and I finally got done with my post for today. Since I’m the only trainer it’s going to be hard training all of the rookies at once. I walked in to the Outpost to report in and noticed that nobody is here. “So this is what it looks like when it’s empty.” I said to myself. It’s so messy but you can tell by all the mess that everyone in here is comfortable and act as a family. I put out a little smile of that warm image in my head and checked in my report. Its sunset so I thought seeing through Captain’s office window would be cool to see the view of the ocean. Then I saw Captain sitting down at his office looking out the window with a bottle of rum, staring out the window with a lot of stress in his eyes. “Probably thinking about how he talked to the princess like that.” I thought to myself not making him notice me. “Come to think of it I don’t recall ever seeing him like this before. He always had this motivating face that uplifts everyone. The face that you call a courageous leader.” I said to myself. I turned around and was about to head to the door then I accidently kicked one of the desks and hit my toe really hard. I knelled and the pain from my toe was unbelievably annoying. “Who’s there?” I heard Captain said. I panicked and got up again and this time I hit my head on the same desk that I hit my toe on. Even though I had a helmet on the pain from my head was giving me a headache. I heard the Captain’s footsteps stop from my behind. I turned around and he gave me a confused look. “Mercenary? Why are you still here?” Captain asked. I stood up and gave him a salute out of respect. “Sir I was just reporting in from my post, I was about to go straight home after that sir.” I responded. “You were still working at your post huh? In this late evening, you must be worn out.” Captain said with a worry look on his face. “No sir! I’m fine no worries!” I said. Captain looked at me for a while then gave out a little smirk. “Always trying to act tough, haven’t changed a bit when I first met you and for some odd reason I like that about you.” Captain said. I stopped giving out my salute to him and he shakes his rum bottle in my face and asked. “I know you’re worn out your eyes tells all. Join me and we can talk.” Captain said with a little smile.
I sat down in his office staring at my glass of rum and semi staring at Captain drinking his from the bottle. “I don’t like alcohol at all but I couldn’t refuse with that face he gave me.” I thought to myself while staring at my glass. I looked up and stared at Captain looking outside the window. Before I said anything he asked me “Do you know anything about the ancient race Mercenary?” Captain asked while staring at the window still. “Yeah, I thought it was some kind of fairytale, didn’t think they...
