1. At the barricade of freedom

I take my position on the barricade and wait for the signal to be given. The enemy would be aproaching soon. I didn't want to be here but I knew I was fighting for what I believed in. A revolution, led by my best friend, Ramin. He was so sure we were going to win this even though we were wildly outnumbered.
The seconds seemed to last for ever. Many of the men here that I had called my friends were about to die. We were going into battle, the one battle that could change the way this city worked, the battle that could give the people the freedom they deserved. Would the deaths of these men mean anything if we lost? And what of us if we lost, surrendered or were captured? I didn't want to see Ramin die. He had been like an older brother to me ever since my mother died. He had protected me from the unlawful things I had done and I would have most surly rotted in prison by now numbered not named, cold and alone. Frightened but not as much as I was know. It would all be over soon.
