He didn't answer, but merely glared at me, like a cornered dog baring its fangs for the final resistance. I bring the sword in my hand down. A quick and clean slash ripped the man's throat apart. He fell down with a dull "thunk", his lifeless body hit the cold marble floor of the office.
The sword in my hand vanished into thin air; its purpose filled. I turned my back on the corpse, but...
"There! In the office!"
"Ready your arms! This is one hell of an expert killer; don't let him escape at all costs!"
Shit! I cursed under my breath. This is bad. Judging from the footsteps, there must be over a dozen of them. I cannot just blast through them; not when the secrecy of the organization is at risk. I kicked the door close.
Tens of sword solidified in the air, and by a jerk of my hand, one by one sank into the wall, creating a makeshift barricade for this time. Just a second after I finished, sounds of people trying to barge in by force could be heard from the other side of the door. I have no time left. A pair of twin swords appeared at my respective hands; I threw them at the glass window, breaking it.
This is th floor, but I had no time to think otherwise. Making up my mind, I dashed with all my might and jumped outside the window just a split second after the people behind blew the door open.
"This is th floor!!"
"Is he insane!?"
Sort of thing that could be heard from behind me. I'm already in midair and would crash to the concrete below in 5 seconds. And die even if I'm not killed.
A lance appeared in my left hand instead and I thrust it with all my strength onto the wall about 4 metres from the ground. The stopping force was very strong; I almost dislocate my arms when I thrust that lance of mine. Gritting my teeth, I used the pole as a fulcrum and landed safely on the ground.
Just as I was to draw a breath of relief, however...
"There he is! He's down on the ground!"
Hell, there seemed to be no end for their numbers, did there? This is bad...
"Shirou, jump in!!"
...What? I turned my head just to find a girl with golden hair just stopped beside me, riding on a motorcycle.
"Saber!? Why are you..."
"There's no time, come on!"
Without any other words, I simply jumped to the back and gripped her tightly. Sounds of steps could be heard from before us, drawing nearer and nearer. But Saber simply brandished her sword, and...
Just from a single slash, the dozens of men were pushed back as if with a very strong vacuum of gale. Without wasting any time, she immediately punched on, and we both rode together from the place...
My first fanfic
Yeah, this is basically an amalgamation between Fate and Hitman. Shirou and Saber are now agents of The Association, who are in some kind of "top secret" department which is specialized in termination of potential threats to the Association.
The setting is some 5-6 years after the events in the 5th Heaven's Feel. For reasons unknown (yet to be explained), Saber is now fully human and Shirou's partner in the Association while still retaining most of her powers.
More canon characters will be revealed one after another, so stay tuned for the story development. )
For the background storyline proportion, I think I will pretty much follow anime proportion, since that's the most commonly and widely understood.
