Stop! Who goes there? I called out. The dark figure stopped. He was wearing a black cloak with a hood. His hood hid his face well. The black made him almost invisible in the silent moonless night. I tried to shine my torch at his face to identify him, but all I could see was the silhouette of his smiling lips. “I my friend, am life.” He said in a calm voice with the same smirk on his face.

“Don’t joke with me.” I replied.

“A joke is a very serious thing and I am not serious.” His facial expression showed he was enjoying this.

“I said tell me who you are!”

“I am joy, I am sadness, I am heaven, I am hell, I am sweet, I am bitter, I am whatever you want me to be. You are my master and I, your slave. But, alas, you follow what I want and in the long turn become my slave. So easy to manipulate you are. You believe everything is fate and give up your will to question everything as a result you fall into bondage with me. Those who become my slave are all doomed to perish. They all become like a herd of lost sheep, bleating and waiting for the wolves to pick them one by one. They search for a savior instead of saving themselves. They start fearing what they don’t understand and as a result follow anyone who presents them as their well wisher without question. They forget who they are or what their true destiny is, they just become hollow straw men. The only thing they really want is to prolong my stay and live in fear.

“I have had enough, tell me who you are or I will shoot you.” I said as I aimed my gun at his head.

“Oh, no need to get all touchy, my name is Waleed and this whole thing is written just to annoy you.” 😛

The scene was of absolute horror and I was its sole witness. There were three of them working on their three victims with their sharp weapons. I sat not so far from them, well in their view. But they continued to do their work as if I didn’t matter. They were strong, much stronger than me so I knew I can’t over power them, so all I could do was just sit and watch as they worked on their victims with extreme accuracy, as if they did this everyday. Who knew, maybe they did. Their victims, sat with their heads lowered. There was no sign of fear on any one of their faces. “How brave” I thought, as I searched for even a single frown on their face or some sign of fear in their eyes but was bitterly disappointed. They showed no emotions what so ever as cold steel was being operated upon them. The floor was getting messier by the minute. I knew soon they will turn their attention on me, and then it will be my turn. “Will I be as brave as they are?” I asked myself but before I could answer, one of them was done with his victim and pointed towards his empty seat. I knew what he meant so I got up and took the seat he wanted me to take. “So, what will it be?” he asked in a heavy voice. “Just a hair cut, no massage.” I answered as the barber started cutting my hair. 😛
