The Secret - Chapter 01
Many whispers had been floating around the Kingdom that the rumors of the Arcosian Assault was coming. No one could have seen it coming and King Betroo always kept on his toes. Walking into the palace was Lt Yangcong and his trusted companion Fang, both wearing their respective uniform and representing an old tradition and none of the newer saiyan armor models. They both had respectfully bowed to one of the King's advisors, who immediately beckoned his index finger and middle together in an upward position, giving them the signal to raise to their feet without uttering another word.
"As of right now, a few planets had been captured by the World Trade Fleet. Those space pirates are quickly making a name for themselves."
"And about their next target?"
"Planet Goral sir. Its only a few planets away from Planet Vegeta sir."
"Have you gained the trust of one of their members?"
"Royal Prime Minister Frez. He's the one who told me where their next target is."
"What is your opinion on the matter?"
"If we send troops over to that planet, it would raise their suspicions and they may find out that I'm a spy."
"So we should allow them capture for Planet Goral then?"
Yangcong knew that if they had occupied Planet Goral, it would provide the Fleet much more intel than ever before. It would also bring them much closer to their goal than anything else."
"King Yesemere is the leader of that planet. If he somehow gives information to the fleet about us, it could doom us all."
"I will extract King Yesemere from the Planet and bring him here."
"Having him safe would be our best priority for now. We still need his resources."
"I will take care of it, you can count on me."
"You are dismissed. You have twenty four hours."
Arriving to Planet Goral without mentioning their arrival was rather odd. King Yesemere stood at the balcony steps at his castle and spotted Yangcong and Fang walking out of their ship. The guard who was nearest to them, spoke to them.
"State your business?"
"I have to discuss matters with King Yesemere in private."
"I still need to know what for."
"It involves the World Trade Fleet."
The guard looked to Fang, seeing his incredible how power and then back at Yangcong.
"Alright, you can come. Your friend here will have to stay."
Yangcong nodded and went with the guard and now both he and Yesemere had sat together in his private bedroom quarters and Yesemere pulling out a bottle of wine.
"What's the occasional Yangcong? I know you didn't come here for mere conversation. What is the fleet up to?"
Yangcong looked to the wine bottle the King had brought and seeing himself pour a glass in his own cup.
"I have information that this planet is next on the World Trade Fleet's list."
"Nonesense, we had acquired a peace treaty with them just days ago."
"Another planet near you had received the same information and within a few days, they were captured. It's to put your planet at ease. But what I am telling you is the truth."
"Are you here to send troops over to my planet for protection?"
"I can have it arranged."
"Are you a wine person Yangcong?"
"I'm more of a vodka man, but I drink wine on occasion."
The king poured him a glass and Yangcong sniff and then took a sip.
"The wine is from the Planet Rita isn't it?"
"Criminals do tend to have the best wine."
As Yangcong had place his cup of wine down, within his left hand was a small liquid from a vital which he had slipped into the glass which was poison. Yangcong had now faced the direction of the King and proceeded to walk forward. Pretending to be clumsy, Yangcong had "tripped" over and fell to his fit. The King placing his glass of wine down on the table and helping Yangcong up from the ground.
"Dear me, it must be my old age that has gotten the better of me."
"Nonsense, you look younger than me."
Yangcong now had a glance at the table behind the King and proceeded to look at the King's picture portrait just above his bed.
"Hehe, you have to tell me. How much did that portrait of yourself cost?"
The king looked to the portrait and now Yangcong stood beside the King as the both of them looked over at it.
"Ah, it was too much money for it, and to have it gold framed. You don't want to know."
Yangcong had then pointed his finger towards the picture.
"Hey what is that you are wearing in the photo? Around your neck?"
The king had looked much closely and with Yangcong moving his arms to his back, he carefully switched the glasses without looking. His arms now rested on his back as he stood forward next to the King.
"I am not sure what you mean?"
"It must be my eyes playing tricks on me, it looked like you had a turtle neck sweater on. How foolish of me. Ah well no matter. I will be having the troops come within twenty four hours. About ten thousand will come."
Yangcong had grabbed "his" drink and bringing it close to his lips and the king did the same.
"How's about a toast to a start of a new partnership?"
They both took their sip and placing the drinks both on the table.
"Now about those troops, will you be sending low class or the elites?"
"The elites of course. Each with power levels over 10,000"
"Good good and about the payme-"
The king's vision had gone south and his body had collapsed. Yangcong had caught him just in time. A few seconds more and the King was killed. Yangcong had gotten on his scouter over to Fang. After giving him the message, he took his ship and get out of there and leaving through the balcony. Yangcong had now headed to the prime minister fleet ship and now stood beside Frez.
"Any new information?"
"King Yesemere was killed just like you wanted it."
"And the saiyans don't suspect a thing?"
"I will have to go back to the Planet and tell the advisor that something had happened."
"That gives us enough time to swoop in and conquer the planet."
"And our agreement?"
"You will be paid as promised. It will be more than what the Kingdom pays you."
"And the guarantee that my family will be safe from the assault?"
"Not to worry. You have done your service well."
Yangcong leaving and heading back to the advisor. Kneeling before him again with Fang.
"I have bad news to report."
"King Yesemere was killed before I had gotten there. It looks like they had sent an assassin."
"Of course they would do that... Do you still have connections to Planet Rita? Can you find out who the assassin is?"
"Yes of course. It will take me a few days to do it."
"Since I know the planet is dangerous, I will be sending an elite task force with you."
Failing the advisor for the first time, now made Yangcong a target. The Elite Task force would watch over Yangcong for the time being.
