There was a time when we fought hard against the Change, when we were brave and when we believed. We all believe, me, my mother, my sisters, and my brother. We believed. The entire Rose faction believed, but that was when my sister Anya led us under the guide of Marquise, her lover and trainer.
We were brave, but then she died mysteriously in some white box without walls or doors. The mayor never told us what him and his men did to her when they caught her, but we know our mayor, he has black eyes and he shows no mercy.
So yes, there was a time when we were brave, but that time is not now.
Now, we fear our own shadows.
