Alice woke up that morning with a startle, loud yelling and sharp metallic noises, replacing the usual sad silence of their living quarters. She quickly goes looking for her uncle who was waking up just a few beds away. What are those noises? she asks, getting increasingly worried by the minute. Ignoring her, Peetek, Alices uncle, rushed past her to the quarters entryway.
They are destroying the house, the guard fell protecting the masters, we have to run. Leanna blabbered as she cried. What about Nishka and my son? Peetek asked urgently.

You did what? Peetek eyes were wide open. I had no choice, those things where coming, she went back to Troy, and I locked the door. They would have killed all of us... Im so sorry Peeteks expression shifted from rage to agony, what could a skaa farmer do against a group of Koloss?
