The pile looked like a garbage dump. It had a wide circumference such that it supported a great height. There must have been over a hundred rotten bodies; bodies that were beyond recognition as being human. The skins were dark black, and areas that were exposed had a disgusting orange rather than the red that meant blood, as well as the occasional patches of white and green that meant mold and algae.
