"Who are you and why have you surrounded us?" Asks aman
A reply comes from a man who is standing on the higher ridge. His has mask on his face so he couldn't be recognised," well the question is wrong my brother, because you know why are we here.
But my friends as far as i know then think that you were given a chance to surrender and leave this place safe and sound but you chose the otherway.
