*Rayn walked around his village with his face covered in a turbin. He walked past a group of kids,playing kickball. He stopped infront of them and one child kicked the ball towards him. Rayn smiled under his turbin and kicked it back softly. The dusty winds of Africa blew and an area of his turbin unwrapped, revealing his scaly lizard skin. The kids bolted away from him and he watched them sadly.* <br> "Why does everyone run from me?" *he trudged on through his village until he reached his own hut. He heard some commotion inside, so he walked in. * <br> "Hello?" <br> * a figure was huddled in the corner of the hut; a blood puddle surrounding it and leading toward rayn* <br> "Sami?" *Rayn asked the figure,thinking it was his best friend. The figure layed still and Rayn called out again.* <br> "Sami?" *He shook the figure and it collapsed onto the ground. Rayn looked at sami,his eyes filled with hurt.* <br> "Sami...." * an explosion occured nearby and shook the hut, knocking Rayn over. He scrambled to the entrance to see his village being bombarded with bombs and gunfire. Huts burned down to the ground, children & women were being shot down or taken hostage by strange men in all black suits with a scorpion on them. Men were being beatened and killed. Rayn grabbed a stick from the ground and hit a nearby soldier; he grabbed his riffle and ran out the hut, away from danger. Two soldiers threw grenades at rayn, only blowing up the ground beside him. He turned around and fired at the soldiers,killing them. He hid behind a hut, watching his hut & Sami burn down. He prayed and continued off toward the city.
