Prologue

Reds, oranges, blacks, and yellows were added with each brush stroke, plopped on the canvas in an almost violent way.

The painter’s bright amber eyes gazed deep within, a feeling of worry and grief gripping his heart. For, although small, an odd figure could be seen slightly poking out from behind one of the building’s corners, the fire’s light shining upon it.

An arm laid limply stretched across, a brown head of a boy that had an odd curl looking with dead, light olive green eyes, expression vacant and gone.
