Antikyra Alexandros slept inside his guard post, on the border of the Antikyran and Amarysian territories. Everything seemed peaceful and quiet as usual, allowing him a good night's, or day's in the current case, sleep. "Sir." Something seemed to sound near him. A bird singing? An insect passing next to his ear? Maybe a voice? "Sir." It was clear now. A voice. But who was it? If it was an inspection he was in deep trouble. He had only gotten off easily the first time cause a freind woke him up right ebfore the inspector came. He still did not escape unifrom violations but it was better than getting caught sleeping. If he got caught this time he would be in trouble. The Antikyran Civil Guard was quite strict. Might as well wake up and see who it is Alexander thought. "Sir?" "Oh hello. Sorry for making you say that so many times. I was slightly sleeping on the job, heh heh." It was an ordinary young man crossing the border, holding his passport. Alexandros took it checked the details and stamped it, real quick, to make up for the awkwardness of getting caught sleeping. He handed the man his passport, before seeing a crowd stretching for miles, behind him. They were hodling blue and red flags. "What- what are all thsoe people? Is it tourist season already?" "No sir. They are with the National Unity Front, like me. They have come here to protest peacefully. So they are waiting to get their passports checked. Alexandros blinked and looked at the crowd dazzled. "Well... are they unarmed?" "I think so sir." "Then they can go through. I will go ahead and open the pole." Alexandros got out of the little guard post and lifted the pole, allowing the thousands of protesters to pour into Antikyra. He then got on the radio to notify the region's commander. "Ah sir. We have a small situation. I just let a whole lot of people in from the border." "We know corporal. We have been getting that a lot today on the Eastern border. Hwo many was it?" Alexandros turned around to look at the huge line, stretching for miles once more. "Ten thousand? Fifteen?" "Thank you Corporal. We will take it from here." The Commander closed the phone, turning to the other officers in the border control office. "Gentlemen. This is going to be one long day."
