just another day in hell.Mature

the leaving? yeah, i remember... they all got on there damn ships and left us. the end.   so what?  if they ever came back they wouldn't be the same, there'd be less of them,  we're getting by, every way we have to....

I awoke too the face of my young friend looking down at me,  same as always, his red hair dangled over my face,  "wake up boss.  we got some!"  before I even sat up, he had jumped out of the open door and back onto his horse, tied to the caravan's door. he jumped on, untied his mount and rode back to the head of the boys,  by the time the order's were being shouted out to attack, I was already dressed and arming myself, gun at my side, book sword on my back. I stepped out onto the platform of my cabin, to see what was worth me being woken up. I peered down the mountain side to see the sun was just over the distant hills,  casting light onto the plains below us,  a trail of horseback riders were making there way along a trail, kicking up small clouds of dust in there wake,  with a shout, alaxander led the horse's down to meet the trail,  while the foot soldiers stayed in line with the caravan's.  I wasn't there to see the faces of the riders,  but the sight of 260 fighters in heavy armour would make anyone crap themselves, even those who made us lose our perants...

the fight that followed was easy enough, they put up a small fight, but our archers took out most of them before the riders got into hand to hand combat, they gave up in a few seconds, more to join the lost boys.  we went everywhere, building our army to take revenge on the bastards who stole our perants, and crush anyone who stood in our way.

this is how it is, this is how it will be till the end of our days. children acting as men, boys no longer playing soldiers. we started as few, but soon we'd have enough people to raid to last ship yard, the ships would need work, but soon, we'd bring back our family's, our perants... my brother.

lets hope this works...

The End
