The Savages came in their hundreds, war-worn and brutal, pouring over the barren landscape.
She watched them from behind the barricade of pretty words. She was “harder to reach”, “distracted, but “available”. “She wanted flattery”. Apparently. But the words could not hide her for long.
Their eyes were hidden behind masks of rips and tears. An army of broken humanoids.
They had an easy mantra – “Savages, Silence Yourself” and they would hum it over and over again as they poured through the battle grounds.
She wished she could see their eyes; search for some kind of humanity left. But it was futile. The Savages were here to stay and her hiding places were running out.
