The Perfect Lie (First Draft) The sun had taken sanctuary behind the dark clouds, which now dominated the heavens above the city of El Morado. Dark, identical stone buildings flanked the River Morado, a concoction of sludge and slime which flowed though the city like horrifically contaminated honey. Perhaps the most significant structure on this part of the river was the City Palace, a colossal building with its towers and turrets shrouded in the silhouette of the soaring clouds, and secrecy. In the forest surrounding the Palace, Commander Twitchell, El Morado City Watch, flung himself to the ground to evade a small tree.
