ambush - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
There are many ways to become a hero, perhaps if I had other talents I'd be a hero at a desk, or in a hospital saving lives... or perhaps building homes, cooking meals... but I'm a dark angel indeed. I was build to kill. And so I kill kidnappers and those who terrorise civilians. I am the master of the ambush because I intend to do each job with clean efficiency and emerge unscathed.
There is more than one kind of ambush, you dot-to-dot thinkers (morons) imagine the movie scenes with guns and lots of running. I guess that can be fun if the quarry is sufficiently evil. But we make an art form of it. We take them down from every side, pick their life apart until they are in ruins, then we let them do the rest. Call it a monster-removal-service if you wish, because we are the predators of the predators, the protectors of the mild. We're a sort of societal immune system; that's our function.
In those dark days after the ambush, after our children were taken, the grief was enough to sink the mighty, but our hearts were enough to rise and we became the parents our souls demanded we be. And though it broke us to even think it, the best chance we had to find them was to track sales of medical equipment to small private facilities. For those who sell drugs also deal in body parts for live donation. The only way to find them was to set up an ambush of our own to reclaim our own. These people can't make even a scalpel - so there is a trail, somewhere.
The strike back against the evil, those with cold indifferent hearts had been long, long overdue and we set about creating an ambush for they who always expected to remain at the top of the heap.
