The king sat in his throne clenching the dagger in his throat, watching as the assassin kills his family and anyone else in the throne room. The king tried to formulate words but the assassin shoved the dagger further into his throat.

The sun gave life to the city and its unfavorable tenants as it stared at them below.
“Hey Felix did you hear?”, yelled the boy, poking his friend who was laying down under a tree reading.
“Hear what Marcus, what are you babbling on about this time.” replies Felix still reading his book
“The king is dead. It happened last night after the feast. They say it was mystic rose.”, Marcus said hovering over Felix like a madman.

“regardless you got to hand it to them, they sure are making the city safer.”
“Yeah but they are weong for doing so. We have laws to protect its citizens and punish those who break the law. No one is above the law no matter how right you believe you are.”
