The Dark Star - The Beginning of the End....

A short story...
In two parts though...
I could have finished it now..
But it was getting too big to type...
And i want a break...
Conclusion tomorrow i guess.....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Dark Star (The Beginning)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was a dark night. They mostly were always dark on nights like this. Almost like the heavens could sense the turmoil brewing at ground. And the stars were all switched off to make the darkness complete. Except one....

That was his star. Or so he liked to believe. His mother always told him the story of how he was born out in the fields, on a dark night like this, with only the star to welcome him. His mother took it as a sign. "The star will lead you to your destiny." Those were her words. If only she knew how prophetic her words would turn out to be....

He took it as a good sign. He had always had good fortune on nights like this. In fact whatever he was today he somehow owed to the star. And today, on the night of his new decision it shown. It was a good sign. He was sure....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He was running.....

Today he was careless. They were chasing him through the fields. Ever since he was old enough to walk this was how he made his living. Stealing. He didn't call it stealing. In his mind, he was more of a Robin Hood. His only mission to feed his family, his old mother and hungry brother. Quite a big mission for a child who had just turned 10...

He ran. It was a dark night and the fields were thick. He could hear the sounds of the villagers at his back. He wasn't fast enough to lose them. His only option was to find someplace safe to hide. Maybe he shouldn't have stolen the chieftain's gold. But he had to! He had hungry mouths to feed. They were waiting. He had no choice....

The only source of light was from a lone star in the sky. He followed it, running towards it. He felt safe thinking it was his star. It would lead him to safety. It was lucky for him he didn't know where he was going. For if he had known, he would have stopped right there...

The sound of the mob was receding. Thank God, he thought. He would have fainted from exhaustion in another minute if they had kept the chase up. Tired, he continued to run, until he broke out from the oppressing crops into a clearing. He collapsed on the dirt, unable to breathe or even crawl. Only then did he look up....

He had reached what people called the Dead Man's Zone. Not because it was haunted or any other old folk tail. But quite literally, a place where killers stayed. No one who went in there ever came out alive. No one even knew who occupied this massive land. No wonder they turned back, he thought. They were more concerned for their lives. Shit!

He could hear dogs barking , and the sounds were getting closer. As he slipped into unconsciousness, for the first and last time he cursed his star...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It had been almost 20 years before but he could remember that night like it was yesterday. He had thought it was his last night for sure. Out of the frying pan and straight into the fire. But instead, it was the night he met his benefactor. Everything he was, he owed to him.

He had found him out there lying on the ground. Yet, he did not want to kill him. Instead, he took him in. He gave him a chance, a future. He promised to look after his family for him if he was willing to join him. The next day, was his first day working for him.

At first, there was the training. Finally, something he excelled at. People said he was a natural. He had grace and speed, heightened reflexes and a sharp mind. It was as if he was made for this. It pleased his benefactor even more when he excelled. Before, he was just an opportunity. Now, he saw potential, a future. He took him in and made him family.

Soon, he started putting what he had learnt into his work. He started on a night like this. And soon, he grew in position until he was at his Benefactor's right hand at all times.He was a man now, someone in society. He had a name and respect. Lots of it. And where there is respect in today's world, there also lies lots of wealth.

As he walked up the tarmac from the gate, towards the mansion ahead, his thoughts shifted from his benefactor to the only other person who mattered in his life....
