If you make it, it will be theirs.
If you defend yourself, you will not be defended.
If you let others defend you, it will be too late.
This is a world where sin wins,
and if you are benevolent, others will be malevolent or even violent.
The masked man basks in his truth,
the truth that he cruelly casts out.
The mask is refreshing, but it is corrupting,
it is disrupting of your way of life.
Masked men gather to ruin lives,
jealous of the ones who have one.
They can be who they wanted to be,
as girly as a princess, or as heroic as Hercules.
But in the end, when your patience is depleting,
when everyone just keeps bleating,
you can simply resort to deleting it all.
While others find the mask and put it on,
others take the opposite path,
and drone on about their daily life.
They give out information,
that they would handle with caution otherwise.
But in the end, when their patience is depleting,
when everyone just keeps bleating,

The clicking of high heels echoed loudly off the cold and shiny floor as the blonde led the way through a long corridor of the scientific establishment. Blueish, fluorescent light reflected hardly off the polished steel-clad walls that amplified and dislocated the savage hissing of a distant ventilation fan. The thin scent of sterility hung in the air, gradually growing stronger as the man and the woman took a right, passed a few nondescript doors and carried on until they stopped in front of a heavy iron door. A metallic plate on the left read "X-72". The man watched the blonde closely from beneath his black shades as she unlock

"Who's that woman in the back? The one in the blue dress?"
"Connor, it's my wedding. I'm not looking at anyone but Norris."
"Right, sorry," I say, escorting her the rest of the way and handing her off to Norris. I take my seat and exert all my will in an attempt to remain facing forward.

There was a pause, and then no more movement and that signaled Malik that the man had fallen into the deepest part of sleep. For the next three hours he would not wake unless something touched him, and now Malik had his chance.
His sword was fastened to his belt, the feather lying on his desk was now being tucked into a safe place in his shirt. He rose from where he was sitting and walked out and into the room right beside his.
The man was asleep on the fluffed pillows that lay on the floor, arms curled underneath his head. His legs were bent so they ruffled the front of his robes, making the outfit look bigger on him than it really was.

“Well, she is a really likable person.” I smile, looking at the soldier and the thief, just as she steals a piece of meat from his plate.

(Also called Sand-Snappers, Dune-Sharks, or Blind-Maws)
Creatures hailing from Saddle Arabia and the many surrounding deserts. Their name is more of a curse than a title, translated to mean "Wolves of the Desert Wind." Though they look much like the kind and peace-loving citizens of Equestria in way of form, these predators are hardly either. They are extremely dangerous, and make certain portions of the high deserts and mountainous areas impossible to traverse except by air. Thankfully, no Daharashk has been seen bearing wings like the pegasi of their equine cousins, and thus have not taken to the skies.
Generally dark or sand-colored, they blend almost perfectly into their environment. As well as having a somewhat thicker coat of fur to protect from the powerful wind and sands of their home. Though they often range into darker shades, even to black, very few if any brighter colors are seen among the Daharashk as it would affect their natural camoufl

She was trapped. In the narrow passageway, she had no chance to escape. There was one on the left and one on the right. Freaks, monsters, whatever there were called; they caught her, ready to rip her into pieces. They were growling menacingly, drool dropping from their hideous jaws. Step by step, they were getting closer. Their long claws were shining in the dangerous sunlight.
She was tired, she was thirsty, and she was out of breath. Only one bullet remained in her handgun. She could try to kill one of her predators, but she had absolutely no chance to kill the other. The girl heavily sighed. It was over. Just give up and let them do their job. No one could save her. The rest of her team was completely on the other side of the town. Why had she come that way? She got lost and ended up in a deathtrap. She was so desperate and dizzy from the heat and the lack of water that she didnt think about using her walkie-talkie to contact her friends.

His breath came short. His hands trembled, one stained red where it clutched his side. Bile rose in the back of his throat. His eyes darted about, frantically seeking that which they could not find. Dodging around behind a pillar, he tried to quiet his breathing in order to hear better, but the frantic thundering of his heartbeat drowned out all else.

You felt your heartbeat jolt, and mentally slapped yourself for being so cowardly. Sure, you were great at combat fighting, blackmailing, and slipping and blending through crowds.
Clearly you were not showing much faith in doing the Leap of Faith. Balling up your fists, you glanced nervously at your mentor, for any signs of encouragement. He roughly nodded, though the full assassin next to him rolled his eyes. You could easily read his lips; "Novices."
