Two men moved silently towards the figure sitting beside the campfire. All was quiet. Drawing their weapons they sprang with wild shouts at the seated figure. The man leapt up and tried to defend himself but was quickly overwhelmed. The ornate knife-handles seemed to glow in the moonlight as the two knives sank home many times and the man fell to the ground, his blood changing the brown dust to red.
