Sheepdogs

There are three types of people in the world. Sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. What would life be like without the sheep? There would be nothing for the wolves, therefore there is no need for them. But, what would that mean for the sheepdogs? After all, there are no leaders if there are no followers.

The girl ran. She didn’t just run for her future, she ran for her life. Her dark hair that normally fell in ringlets to frame her soft, dark face now stuck to her shoulders and forehead from sweat. She wanted to go back to the living quarters with her friends and the nice people that took care of them. She did not like test that the nice lady had told her she had to take.

First, she had to see that poor man die, and now the angry dog was chasing her. She had tried to be brave like the lady said, but when she didn’t run from the dog it had bitten her. Now she was bleeding and running for her life.

She was in a scary part of town. Normally, the places she went were very nice and clean. This place was very messy and very dangerous. There were broken things all over and it was very hot. The building where the man died was where they let her in. When she had ran out the open door, the next thing she knew there was a very mad dog that was after her.

The dog barked and snarled. She cried and screamed. Deep down there was a voice that told her there was no point in screaming, but she didn’t listen to it and kept screaming for help. The dog was much faster than her. She needed to find a place to hide. The lady had told her the only way to get out of the run downtown was a red door. There was a red door right in front of her, not twenty yards away. With every step the door got closer, but so did the dog.

She grabbed the doorknob and pulled the door open then slammed it shut. She had to struggle to keep the dog from getting in too. She had made it! She got through the test. She gasped in all the air she could get. Then she seen the man. He was dressed in all black. He had a rather frightening look to him.

“Did I make it through the test?” she asked him. Her voice was shaky.

“Almost, but whether you fail or succeed is up to you.” he smiled at her, it was not a very nice smile. She was already trembling at the sight of him, when she seen the gun in his hand she let out a sound that could not be described with words.

“Please.” she cried. “Please don’t kill me.” his smile got bigger. “Are you going to kill me?” she asked him.

“That is up to you.” he pointed the gun at her.

“No!” she cried. “Don’t do this!” she cried and cried harder. She was in a ball on the floor with her head tucked away. Nothing happened so she looked up at the man. He ;looked down at her. Finally, he used his one free hand and put a finger to his ear.

“What do you think boss? I personally am surprised she made it this far, but that is not my part of the job.” he paused, listening to the voice on the other end. “Yes sir.” he said, and put his second hand back on the gun. “Sorry little lady, but you're a sheep, and this is a world without sheep.” the man said with a hint of sorrow in his voice. The girl screamed and a loud bang filled the mid-day air.

“There were three types of people in this world.” the man spoke, he stud tall and the people were attentive. “I am not your leader because this is a world of leaders. You lead yourself and make your own decisions in this cleansed world. I am here to guide you and that is that. We as a team have made it that way. We together have discarded the cowards in this world so that now we are stronger than we have ever been.” he paused and there were cheers, “There were three types of people in this world, but now there is one. We as one people have made this new world possible.”

“There was an old saying.” the man said a little quieter than before. “There are three types of people. There are the sheep, the wolves, and the sheepdogs.” there were many smirks on the faces of his audience. “The sheep are useless and they hold us back with their cowardliness. And we must waste out time protecting the sheep from the wolves. In this new world, there will be no sheep and with no sheep there are no wolves.” there were more cheers. “And with those kinds of people out of the way, there is no one to hold us back!” there was a roar from the crowd. And with that James Quince left the podium.
