Matthew didn’t know who to trust. Altair had been the person to open his eyes to the governments oppression of the 1-stars and now Altair was working with the government. Each person that Matthew spoke to could be another government spy and Matthew had no way of knowing where each person’s loyalty was with certainty. The few people that he spoke to was his council, made up of seven 1-stars hand-picked by Kiara. If nothing else, he trusted her to know who he could trust. Even so, he was wary of the information he shared with them.
The distrust he showed the 1-stars was detrimental to the revolution and many raids in the past few days had been unsuccessful as a result. When information reached Matthew, he was reluctant to share it with his council. Each time he decided to include someone else in his planning he remembered seeing Kiara being led out of the granary by soldiers, Altair close behind. Matthew knew that he needed to trust his advisors or the revolution would fail. Reluctantly, he called a council meeting.
When Matthew walked into the makeshift meeting room he saw his council sitting around a table on mismatched and worn-out chairs. They each wore matching expressions: a mixture of trepidation and hope. They wondered if Matthew would finally heed their council. Matthew say in the empty chair at the head of the table and looked at each councilmember’s face. A thick silence stretched across the room as the council waited with bated breath for Matthew to speak.
“The last few days have dealt powerful blows against our people and our cause. We are losing too much by raiding and attacking insignificant government buildings. It’s time to increase our resistance. Make sure that people around the nation know of the revolution. We are going to need as much support as possible if this is going to work.”
“I’m sorry Matthew, but I’m not sure I understand, what is it you are planning to do?
“We are going to kill president Payne.”
So they are planning to assassinate the president! How do they plan on doing this? What is happening with Kiara at the moment and will she escape captivity somehow? So this story gets longer and more elaborate the more I think about it and I’m not sure when it will end anymore… but I hope that you’re all enjoying it!
