This fic is going to be part of the 2005 Shipping Fanfic Contest in the PG-13 section. The rating is mainly for the violence and death in the fic, but the descriptions in the story aren't too graphic.
There will be multiple pairings, but the main pairing that I will focus on will be that of Ash & Latias (altoshipping), but it won't show up for a few chapters.
This fic is dedicated to Sumnor and Arrow, who were the ones who inspired me to write it.

Shattering the Night
The night was beautiful, both in sight and in sound. Looking up, she could see the beautiful full moon cast its glow down upon the magnificent city, giving it a heavenly aura. Looking down, she could see the gorgeous rivers of water wrapping their way around the buildings and bridges, trying to touch the darkness on the coarse stones with the light given to them from above. Forgetting why she was there, she extended her hand over the edge of the large fiberglass boat and dipped it into the cool, wet liquid. The sound of moving water filled her ears with each stroke her hand made across the surface they gently floated down.
Why? Why am I relaxing? I need to be alert. But it's so...
She raised her hand slowly up, causing her hand to break forth from the water and into the chilly night air. Several drops of water cascaded down her fingertips and plummeted back into the river as if trying desperately to return to whence they came.
Drip. Drip. Drip.
That sound... So familiar to her. But why? Why wasn't it annoying? So relaxing. She could just drift away...
"Team 3. What is your status?" The booming sound of her superior raging in her right ear brought her crashing back into reality. So quickly, in fact, that she couldn't hide her gasp of shock from her teammates, who shifted their gaze from their previous tasks to look at their off-balance team leader in curiosity. To see their so-called leader nearly topple into the river was a sight no one wanted to miss. Snickering ensued.
Trying to regain her dignity, she wiped the palm of her wet hand on her skirt before casting a glare of death over her "incompetent allies". Then, placing her now semi-dry hand on the earpiece, she spoke in a hushed voice, "This is team 3. All green here. Five minutes from position." Once again, she looked at her team. How ten people could fit on such a small boat would probably always be a mystery to her. She still didn't know how she managed not to fall off in the first place.
"Acknowledged." After that being said, the line went dead.
"Understood." A shiver. She closed her eyes to keep her composer. That voice still sent chills down her spine, despite the fact that he had been her partner for years now. "Cassidy." At the sound of her name, she turned and gazed at her original teammate. "Team 4 is in position, but we're still in the danger zone." His eyes were hard, his hand was on his left ear in a similar position that hers was earlier, and his voice unbearable to listen to. Wonder if he swallowed a Lotad when he hit puberty... "The boss wants us to hurry. We're running behind schedule."
Nodding, she spoke in a quiet, authorative voice, "Tell Team 1 that we'll be ready in two minutes." With a slightly louder voice, she turned to the man closest to the motor, "Crank up the engine. We have two minutes to get out of the danger zone and into position. You know what happens if we're late." the man gulped and nodded. She was not known for her kindness, and these men knew it.
The grunt of exertion and explosion of noise filled the air as the motor sputtered to life and the boat began to accelerate. Two minutes... Two minutes and this beauty around her will be gone. Why? It doesn't matter to her what happens to this place. But it is so beautiful...
What a waste.
"Teams 2 & 4 are in position and awaiting orders." Her earpiece was barely audible over the roar of the engine. Her adrenaline began to pump as she finally reached her destination. “Team 3! What is your status?”
After killing the engine, she spoke into the receiver with a victorious tone, “Team 3 in position and awaiting commands!” As she spoke, her nine teammates quickly scrambled out of the boat and onto the secure surface of the weather-beaten walkway with a vigor only seen in those who felt they weren’t ready to die painfully.
Silence. For a moment, nothing was heard. Then, the suave, elegant sound of their leader enveloped her earpiece, “This is Giovanni. Team 4; detonate the charges. Team 2; retrieve the jewel. I will remain with Team 1 to engage the guardians. Team 3; kill anyone who gets in our way. No witnesses. No survivors.” It was now or never. “Commence with Operation Altomare.”
It was time.
Hope you liked it!
