Turtle sprinted through Luthadel as fast as she could muster, dodging people and weaving through alleyways faster than that Fused from the Diagram could have. She was pretty Sneaky, but only slunk through the dark just long enough to make a run for it. The others probably would have found her sooner or later anyway. She had attracted quite the crowd over the past few days. It had been pretty funny to mess with the secret envelopes, but no one seemed to believe her when she claimed it was a prank. The Steel Ministry did have a reputation for order- perhaps the mob behind didn’t care whether she was Obligator or Inquisitor, as long as they removed a stipulation in their working clock of a government. They were wrong, of course. About Turtle’s malicious intent. She just liked a good joke. On and on she ran, and soon her heart began to pound faster. Her legs grew weaker. Running was not her strong suit. She was more of the espionage type, the kind of person who would sneak behind you and yell ‘BOO!’ rather than run circles around your head. (Though if she could manage it, Turtle would admit to it being quite entertaining.) But now was not the time to dream up fantasies of pranks. Turtle knew that the mob would catch her sooner or later. There were too many of them. In a last ditch attempt at survival, she summoned her inner sneakiness and dove into the alley off to her right. With any luck, they’d run right past her. Panting softly in the shadows, Turtle looked out into the main street, eyes wide with fear. She hoped with everything she had that the hooded figures in pursuit would blaze past in their fury, not noticing her escape. Oh, what she would give for a second chance. But no. As the group rounded the corner, Turtle knew her fate. She began to weep softly into her cloak. If only they knew. The one in the front spoke. “This is what comes from confusion, Inquisitor. The depletion of your numbers. Power returned to the true masterminds of the Imperium.” They drew a knife and plunged it into Turtle’s side. With her last breath, Turtle spoke: “No. Confusion... brings... mistake. Your… mistake…” She slumped to the side, leaving the group distraught at another failure. * * * Kesilen's glasses fell down their nose. I really should get a new pair of sunglasses, Kesilen thought. They hadn't had time to find the local glasses stores since arriving on Scadrial, but there were plenty of people with sunglasses walking around here, so they must exist. As they walked down the street, Kesilen saw several people with large, dark sunglasses walk out of a building. Kesilen stepped in, hoping that it might be a glasses shop. Theroom was empty except for a rack of hooded cloaks and a display full of sunglasses, but there was a pounding noise coming from a door to the back. Kesilen opened the door, meaning to ask the owner of the store how much the glasses cost. Instead, they saw a table with one person lying on top of another and a man hitting a spike through the top person into the bottom one. The man looked up, and Kesilen saw that he had large spikes where his eyes should have been. An inquisitor. Kesilen turned to run, but the people who had left the building earlier, who they now knew must have been Inquisitors, came in through the front door, leaving them with nowhere to go. Shattered glasses, then a dead body, fell to the floor. eltruT was lynched! She was an Obligator. Flyingbooks42 was killed! They were also an Obligator.
