“Let hide behind this wall.” Atilius suggested, grabbing Marcus arm.
“What are we going to do now?” Marcus asked.
“Silence. They are coming.”
“Soldiers?” Marcus murmured. “But they aren’t allowed inside the temple Atilius.”
“It doesn’t matter.” Atilius scrutinized the walls hoping to find an escape.
“All of that, just because we refused to kill him.” Marcus collapsed.
“Marcus, calm down.” Atilius lifted him.
“ They’ll be here soon. All the torture we will endure Atilius.” Sobbing, Marcus held his friend face.
“Why are you looking at me like this Marcus?”
“I don’t want to suffer anymore.” Marcus acknowledged. “Let’s jump in this well.” he pointed to a hole.
“This will only get us injured but not killed.” Atilius replied.
“Then.” Marcus hesitated for a moment then continued. “Let stab each other with these daggers. In the neck better, we will die instantly.” They snatched the knifes from their respective waist belts.
“Are you having second thoughts?” Marcus asked, but Atilius refuted. “Then close your eyes and do it.” They hugged each other for the last time.
“Sir, we find the slaves. They are both dead.” A soldier said.
“Dam I wanted to make them a lesson to the other slaves” the noble man shouted.
