2 AM San Andreas Sands
"No,no,no NOOOOOOO!" the sound of heavy breathing following the mumbled dreaming screams of the former champion. Every night it was the same the faceless ghosts of the people around him, the light and then the dust. Pulling himself up out of his sleeping hole Edward looks at the remnants of the fire the visions of the carnage still dancing at the fringes of his mind their screams beginning to fade as his mind comes back to the waking world.
Reaching into his battered rucksack he pulls out the last of his water. iI was still to dark to travel and it was ice cold in the desert wasteland, with nothing left to burn it was gonna be another 4 sleepless hours till the burning sun would rise. The world was now a land of extremes dust clouds and ice cold breezes ruled the night and scolding breathless heat the day. The battle scared armor of the old champion barely took the edge of the nights bitter air and in the day it roasted him like the tin man, but the only thing worse than the weather where the people.
"Up there you see it, light"
"Get ready guys we have a live one"
Frantically shoving all his gear into his battered bag and pulling back into the shadows Edward watched as the scouts approached. His hand resting on his belt on the only weapon he had left his ancient sword.
"The fires still burning and the prints only go in further. Whatever made this fire is still here"
Three people, two armed one in some form of chain mail. His legs no longer able to handle their former speed for long especially on uneven footing and facing a frontal assault would mean he would likely die from dehydration before he would recover fully. It left only one option. His mind and body move as one still hidden in the shadows of the cave the two armed solider suddenly screaming as they feel their bodies seize as their guns float over the third target.
The forms of two of the men fall into the dust their blood pooling in the sands turning it a dark brown. Screaming for mercy the third scout falls to his knees as Edward echoed around from the shadows "You didn't see anything, now go and leave their stuff"
(More later/tomorrow probably)
