An Dangerous Duty
Kasper blended down. He grabbed his binoculars from his backpack, and peeked through it. “See anyone?” His partner Noah asked. “Nothing, except white ice” Kasper firmly responded. “I betcha we’re close. Since October, we Environmental Security Agents had seen double the amount of poachers hunting polar bears, we’re in an area where tons poachers were spotted” Noah assured to Kasper, nudging him. “So this is what being some dumb agent for some useless agency feels like” He grumbled.
“I dunno what you’re brain is talking about. I mean this job requires a lot of skill, including patience though perhaps we can try moving east. In the news, I heard about an particularly dangerous poacher named Matheo, and he has an gang.” Noah offered, trying to get Kasper’s attention. “Sounds good. But isn’t Oliver the professional agent already chasing him down?”
“I had briefings that he was hired to take down Matheo, but not if he’s down with that stupid flu”
“That better prove that Oliver shouldn’t be playdoing during an assignment. Anyway, catching this Matheo dude seems perfect for us” Kasper eagerly replied. He picked up his backpack of supplies, and started moving.
Noah and Oliver started moving. They walked east in the cold weather, and even with their heavy coats, they can still feel the coldness. While they agreed it wasn’t the ideal situation for such work, they were determined to catch Matheo. They started to jog, until they reached their destination.
”Ah, so this is where this scum gang is, they better be watch’n out” Noah cheered.
“Hey, what ya doing here” a voice appeared, yelling at them both.
“Catching criminals that suck” Kasper replied, trying to hide his fear. It was too late. He turned around, and stared. There was Matheo. He was pointing an hunting gun at both of them.
“Yeah damn little people, you shall be cursed by god and the universe for interfering with my business. Now see ya in heaven” He cursed at them, and started to pull the trigger. Before the bullet fired, Noah jumped and smacked at the gun, making it fall below. The bullet then hit Matheo, and he fell down in pools of blood.
“looks like it was harder, though more exciting then I thought” they said in unison. It was sure an accomplishment to celebrate, and one that the news would capture……..

I Miss My Daddy
The True Story of Tragedy - By Miss Anna Lasaks
Everything is so hard. My life is so out of shape, and I have no interest to be in it. One day, I expected my daddy to be back from military work for an holiday. My daddy does military, he was fighting in an war I dunno and didn’t have much time with us. Finally, thanksgiving has came and they let my poor overworked dad back home to play with us. But that wasn’t the case. Instead, me and my mom received an package that included some idea and an letter that says that my father was killed in some gunfight in another faraway country that seemed like another wurld to me. I cried and cried, and these military idiots won’t understand how is it to lose a father, and family member.
I didn’t want to live or play with anyone anymore. I just locked myself inside an room, wondering if I deserved my father. Did I? My daddy used to play board games with me, and we had tons of adventures together. That was all broken when he decided to give in into the propaganda and joined the military. I tried convincing him not to, but he wasn’t an easy to convince. The last time I saw him was before war, which was months ago.
By the time you discover what I’am writing, it’s too late. The damage has been done and I hope you even care. But no one cares in this cruel wurld. Pleaseeee give my daddy back and bring my old loving live back.
Unfortunately, Anna committed suicide. She shot herself with an old gun that her father thinks no one knows just the day before she turned thirteen. It was an tragic event for both her mom and relatives, and they all came to the funeral. We discovered after a search team came after someone reported a bloody girl in the basement. We discovered her journal, and it only says that. This proves how the nature of war spires out of control into an tragedy, and Anna wasn’t the only one in Sunrise Island who had the same experience.
The nation continued to be shocked. Citizens expressed empathy for the girl, and even took on the streets to protest against military policies. “The next victim will be the most innocent one” a man yelled holding up a sign demanding the Sunrise Island Government to defund the military and trash military policies. Respectively, the government has been discussing about this incident, and how they can prevent further tragic suicides. “Implementation of Anti-Depression and Suicide programs for youth across the nation might help”
”get rid of these military idiots. Like what the journal said. Our military is killing our own citizens!”
“Maybe all of you should shut up and instead we should make laws regarding fathers in families serving, it might hurt the military but it would save more deaths of our new generation”
The representatives help up their support. This morning, there has been an vote if the government should implement an law banning wars regarding wars. Hopefully, peace will prevail, and without the lives lost........
By Andalusia Francien
Andalusia-Francien, or more well know as, Dual-Caliphate/Dual-Monarchy, Imperial Iberad, Empire of Francien-Andalusia is a country that emphasize 2 whole land and culture. With the north is held inside the crown of francien and south by crown of Andalusia. Ideally, the central province or royal province are filled with mountainous area with the capital of the nation located near the shore of the Marjas sea. Currently around 30 million people more less live inside the nation, with 3 big cultural group exist. The country exist as constitutional monarchy with house of assembly and prime minister holding the executive position. The nation is filled with many political struggle from the Militant Nationalist, Democratic Reformer and Loyalist to the throne.
Andalusia is derived from Al-Andalus, by previous invader that conquer and claim the land for their caliph. The land itself mean the land owned by Vandal a previous kingdom and tribe that culturally oversee the land. While Francien is a name based on the language spoken by the people of the land. Yet the unification of Andalusia-Francien just simply a unification of name to signify that the 2 crown land now is united and under one dynasty.
Recent history of Andalusian Sultanate are at the 9th century when the first Caliph cross the sea and liberate the province under the tyranny of Vandal. Most of this Vandal King of noble itself will later be overthrown in the 10th century in the north, forming the confederated kingdom of Asturias. While at Francien, the first king of Franks is established by the first Frankish Dynasty. Later on at the 10th century will be when the Francien Empire Clash with the Andalusian Caliphate, while victory is held by the Andalusian they are severely weakened leading the Asturias able to claim and expand south until the mountain that split the north and south. meanwhile with many dead nobles on the Francien land, The Frankish Dynasty able to centralize their power with only the Breton and Normans left as other sole independent yet in the end as the empire vassal state. Later on the Unification Era will happen from 11th Century until to 12th Century.
The Later years after unification filled with many exploration held by the Dual-Caliphate/Dual-Monarchy. Other is the islamization of the Asturias up until the southern Francien, with many hold out for Christianity in Northern Francia and Normans. at the 15th up to 16th Century, the Empire already stabilized enough and cultural mix and idea have come. In this time too, the Emperor move their seat to Balansiyah as to be closer and center toward Paris and bridge for Qurtuba and Francien. A new union of culture group arise and will be called as Ancien that uphold the idea of unity between Andalusia and Francien. Thus the very first notion of unity arose from 16th until 18th century, leading a more unified nation.
Andalusia-Francien is a constitutional monarchy, while the royal still held power but in reality the people are the one that determine the course of policy in the nations. This is due to avoid another disastrous revolt that might split the empire.
The Nation filled with many culture but mostly 6 big culture group exist and act as political and cultural compass for the people living inside it. all of the culture group are known as primary and there many secondary culture group that accepted but not listed due to insignificant important they are as group. most of the people are loyal to the crown and parliamentary but there always be exception that need to be explained.
The one that make up the most in the northern France. Most of them are loyal to the nation but wishes for more autonomy, except the remnant of noble of old Francien who somehow their will to secede still exist to their children and descendant of their knight.
Big Culture group that exist in the south, they make up the most of people in the empire. While loyal to the Empire, they still wish for old Qurtuban Hegemons as such can be seen to attack any idea of autonomy to the northern part of nation
Small Culture Group to the East of nation, filled with once natives of the land that being pushed back by Francien ancestor. They are more open toward the government and nation as long they will be leave to do as they please.
Former raider and barbarian that settle a part of Francien, most of them are extremist to their cause. they believe they are the rightful ruler of the Francien crown. While not necessary a separatist, they are known to have conflict with the government and the francien culture group. They too want more Autonomy
Vandal that cast their old self and nobles. Most of them are free spirited in nature and more open to many discussion. they wish for more democratic reform and see that a crown as unifier of the empire is unstable and dangerous.
Are mixed culture group, or anyone who uphold the royal as the sole ruler and supporter of the unity of 2 empire. can be anyone from any culture and religion, but support the notion of Andalusia-Francien.
