Dragonstar mewls out, hoping his Clan could hear his voice as he was trapped in his den, flames sealing his only exit.

On the small porch of a house, a mother and a girl were gardening, talking about the life going on around them while the sun shone as brightly as possible on a spring day. <p> "Mother," the girl said. "Isn't this a wonderful day?" "It is, Danica." The mother said, sounding slightly scared. Danica must have sensed this, because she cocked her head in her mother's direction. She gave her daughter an assuring smile. Danica turned back to her work. <p> A few minutes later, a black car drove up. "Mother," Danica said, because her mother had not seen. "Who's that?" The mother looked up and screamed. Two men jumped out. "Miss Rebecca Majorie." One said while the other grabbed her none too lightly. "You have not paid for your house or your daughter for four years." The mother broke out in sobs. The man slapped her and she stopped. "This means we will have to execute you." The mother screamed. "What about my daughter?" The man smiled and hit Danica over the head, knocking her out. The mother screamed again. <p> "SHUT UP, IDIOT!" The other man yelled. The first man pulled out a gun and shot her right through the chest. <p> Miss Rebecca Majorie was no more. The men grabbed Danica, shoved her in their car, and drove away. <p> &#9617 Dots &#9617
