"Now Alexandra please be more womanly," mother said. Alexandra grunted and sat in her chair. She hated her mothers lessons on woman hood she wanted to be a warrior but she was a woman she had to stay home to protect the land of Sparta but that wasn't enough. She sat straight in her chair no trying to look at the outside. She watched as the men walked in capes. Her father as once one but died in battle like a true warrior. She got up and walked to the door. "Where are you going?" She looked at her mother her blonde hair in a tight bun.

"Ouy." She said closing the doorr she walked out in to the strets of Sparta. She watched as a man and son fought just like she did to her father but as usual he'll let her win because of her gender. She ran to the steps of the market taking a apple and leaving after she stole it. Suddenly the king Leonidas stepped out with a Persian messenger. His skin was dark and the men following him had scarf wrapped around their faces. "I see so you want us to submit?" Leonidas said. What was he going to do next?

"You women and children will not be slaves. You'll be free." A council man came up.

"Leonidas consider his offering-"

"Submit." He looked at his kingdom and the woman and children, then his queen and son. "We are spartans we have a reputation."

"Leonidas you are a mad man the god-king Xerses will conquer you!" Leonidas chuckled. He fastly pulled his sword out all the other men followed pointing it at the Persians. "Mad men! You all! Mad men!"

"Ha Persian you dare threatened my people with slavery and death. You dare disrespect my queen! You dare to bring the skulls of conquered kings!" He looked at his Queen. She nodded. He turned. "Well Persian. This is Sparta!"He kicked him down a hallow hole. "You'll find earth and water down there!" The rest of the men stabbed the Persians and kicked them down. Yelling loudly.

After that Alexandra took her fathers cape and armour. She looked into the mirror and took her cloak off and looked into the mirror she grabbed he dagger bringing it close to her hair and cutted it with one swipe. It was to her heads ending point. She took a piece of cloth and wrapped it around her breast tying it so it would stay together and up. she took an metal under armour and slipped on over the clothe covering her underneaths. She took the cape and put it on then the helmet. She grabbed the shield raising it high aboe her head and jabbing the sword in perfect position. she was a Spartan Warrior.
