I hated it when he called me that. Richard was my real name, and that stupid nickname was another thing that mother of his left to him. No inheritance, just a contamination of our family, the noble Fortescues, and we would no longer be considered as one of the other regal, powerful families, because of fathers drinking problem and that women he had picked up. 'This is something to do with you, right?' He asked. 'No,' I denied his accusation, but he heard the false tone in my voice and he knew I was lying. I pushed up the panel. It was quiet. I emerged. As I pulled my self up, I gripped my cutlass. A second later Sean pulled himself up, and he pulled out his flintlock. 'What have you done?' he said. I stepped on his hand, kicked his pistol away and bolted. - - - - - - - - - - - - - Sean I pulled myself up, retrieved my pistol, and began to walk through the jungle, and then I realised. Dick had planned to kill me and Father's soldiers, take the treasure and then buy up the company. It was obvious that my Half-Brother had no faith in Father. It made perfect sense. Except - who killed Father's Soldiers? In the next clearing, there lay a man bleeding to death. In his chest was a huge machete of a muted iron tone. I ran over to him. Bending over him, I asked him what had happened. What I could hear came from underneath a hacking, violent cough, and he was obviously choking on his own blood. He had no hope. 'Beware... The red mask... The... Messenger of.. He....' And then he was dead. Sean walked further down, until he walked onto the beach. Out in the azure waters of the bay was the Brig that had brought them here. It was burning. This was no longer a fight between two brothers, it was a fight between right and wrong. Someone who will stop at nothing to get what he wanted, and the Man who was willing to put his life on the line to stop him. ____________ To be continued...... Edit: this is FB 2, not 1.

Early 620, El Oleanda. Father's Trading company was doing well but he was getting old. As he aged, the old stories he believed in came back to haunt him as his ancient brain became senile. One such story was the City of Gold. Hidden on the island of El Oleanda, it was a golden city paved with gold. The most wonderful place in the world. I knew it didn't exist. But father tells us it does and I do as he says. I knew something was wrong when father sent Sean with me. Sean is my half-brother, begot from some drunken women that drunken Father found in the street. Sean and his mother are worthless to me, and father knows I loath them, so he is going off if he thinks it's a good thing to send us away together. Anyway, it was getting dark when we reached the shore. We went further up river in a rowboat. To prevent attack from the lotii, father had provided us with some Guards, from his military escort company. Father has friends in high places. When the depth of the river was too shallow to continue upwards, we disembarked and walked further on into the jungle. As it got darker, we saw more animals, and some kind of a monkey stole Sean's hat. We moved closer to the spot were father claimed the city should be, but when we got there, there was nothing. But I would not show that I had little faith in father. Sean had no qualms in showing his distaste for fathers senile sense of direction. 'There's nothing here!' He yelled. Suddenly, one of the Soldiers tripped. As I began to scold him, I noticed he had tripped over something, in the center of the clearing. 'Dig!' I yelled. As they dug, they found a panel which they removed quickly. Inside it was dark, but one of the soldiers had a torch and we looked inside. GOLD! I dropped down and I turned to Sean. 'I guess Father was right'. Suddenly, I heard a clammer of loud noises and gunshots from above and we heard the clank of the panel being slid back into place. To be continued..... @Ayrlego I hope this OK, as its based in El Oleanda and the challenge is over. @Mesabi @Darnok I was suggesting to remove the references, and I have.
