“Listen up lads, this is an important mission. It’s time you face your purpose in life. Take responsibility and shine through the hardship. Remember, your sweat, your sighs, and trials make the world better. Commit your body to the task and your soul to god.”

From behind them he spoke into his walkie-talkie. “Men standing by ready for orders, Sir.”
When the approval came, the Commander committed six-hundred souls to the devil.
