/shrugs/ It helped me train. Helped me loose the ties that I had to other people before I could get hurt anymore.
/sighs softly/ I wouldn’t lie to a fellow Assassin, no. /not entirely a lie there, either/ /accepts the cup with a gracious smile/
Ah, si, si. Clever man, you are Desmond. -smiles-
Excuse me for the rude remark, I just needed to make sure. I’ve come to terms with quite a few traitors in my Den lately; keeps a woman on guard. -takes a sip from her cup- How far back does your Assassin bloodline go?
/bows his head to her and smiles softly/ There are no traitors here, Eden.
/takes a sip of coffee, thinking about how far he should go/ I can trace back pretty far… The line I come from is a long family of Assassins…
And that, I am thankful for. -smiles warmly and sets cup down-
That is a great thing. Mine goes back as far as the times Masyaf still stood proud, along with Altair and his men; I take a great pride in that. -nods slowly-
/chokes on his coffee and takes a moment before he can properly swallow it down/ /looks up at her, blinking/ R-Really?
Si, si. When I figured this out, I could barely believe it either. -laughs a bit, and takes another sip of her coffee- Do you have ties to Masyaf as well?
