    The Life of The Phantom

    The Life of The Phantom
    Chapter Two

    After Phantom and Ghost had eaten, Ghost had gone to sleep. Phantom, however, couldn't sleep. After around an hour he decided after a while to train instesd of sit around and do nothing. Phantom made his way over to the punching bag, and took off his shirt. He had well-toned muscles, and a solid sixpack. Phantom began to hit the punching bag over and over again, harder each time. Thoughts raced through his head, about Razor, how he was going to stop him, and what to do to stop him. "Trouble sleeping?" Ghost's voice could be heard. Phantom looked over briefly at him. Ghost was still on the ledge he used as a bed, watching Phantom. "I've got a lot on my mind," Phantom replied, continuing to hit the punching bag. "Yep, I know," Ghost told him. "You know that better than anyone else," Phantom chuckled. "Well, I'm your brother. There are few things I DON'T know about you," Ghost pointed out friendlily. "True," Phantom smiled a little. "Whaddaya say to a little sparring, Phantom?" Ghost asked, jumping down. "You're gonna regret that, Ghost," Phantom smirked. Ghost launched himself at his brother. Phantom dodged neatly, but Ghost lunged at him again. Phantom caught his arm and tried to slam him to the ground, but Ghost slipped from his grip and grabbed him by the shoulders. He pinned Phantom to the ground, his grip tight. Phantom went limp. "You give up too easily!" Ghost complained, his grip loosening. Phantom surged upward, throwing him off, and pinned Ghost to the ground. "And you're too gullible," Phantom smirked. "Real funny. Now let me up!" Ghost exclaimed. "All right, fine," Phantom chuckle dand got off him. "You are a worthy opponent," Ghost told him in mock respect. "Thank you, but I have to be. I'm an assassin," Phantom pointed out. "True," Ghost shrugged. He yawned. "I'm going back to sleep. Night!" Ghost gave Phantom a small wave before climbing back up the cave wall to the ledge, and then laid down with a small yawn. Phantom smiled after his brother, but his smile faded to a scowl when he remembered what Razor had done to Ghost and him. He had vowed to protect him, and had sworn vengeance on Razor. 'Razor... eventually, I WILL eliminate you!'

    ((Phantom is shirtless... I REPEAT! PHANTOM IS SHIRTLESS!!! I'm sorry, I just had to do that. Anyway, enjoy this chapter!))
