Unlikely Allies (Gale x JoJo55)
Erdis moved quickly and quietly through the castle halls toward where his target should be. His target was some high end royal, but that was about all he knew about her. Honestly, he didn't like anything about this job, there were to many unknowns. He had been approached by a man who hadn't given his name or where he was from, though his accent gave Erdis an idea of who was really hiring him. The man had handed him a picture of the target and told him where he could find her, Erdis only learning she was a royal from the location. Normally, he wouldn't have taken a job that gave him so little to go on, but work had been slow and the pay out was amazing. So, here he was.
Entering the castle had been simple enough, Erdis slipping through the holes created when the guards switched. Navigating the castle hadn't been so easy, the guards had been thick, causing him to duck into side halls and alcoves far more often then he was comfortable with. He was almost caught when one guard checked his hiding place, but that guard was no longer a problem. He arrived at the room where he should find his target, pausing as he placed a hand on the door. He pushed his long dark hair out of his face and took a breath, steeling himself for his task. He could here voices in the hall behind him, so he quickly opened the door and stepped inside, running directly into a guard on the other side.
