Sam's FlashBack.

"DAD!!".."MOM!!!" All I see is thick grey smoke my throat and nose burn from it. I cant breath my eyes burn. Everything burns . I'm terrified beyond words how can such a peaceful night turn into this.I called out for my parents the best I could. As I felt my eyes start to close I feel my Dads hand grab my arm."its ok my princess. Mom is safe outside waiting for you...its ok"my dad says this through his coughing and tears he looks dirty and is covered in blood his blue sea eyes looks cloudy and half shut. His once sturdy hands shaking in fear. I try to keep my eyes open I'm trying to move fast. Suddenly I see flames grow I can feel the heat slamming against my skin like knives. My Dad shoves me out of the house as far as he could. "I LOVE YOU BOTH!" My dad screams as the burning house we called home came falling

down on him...

I was thirteen years old when Rouges came and burned my home,my Dad..the world was so peaceful for sixteen years after my dad led the witches that wanted to live in peace with humans.He made a deal with the humans that they would protect them and live in peice. There would be a school for humans and a school for witches that way witches can learn how to use their powers for good. The only rules are each human needs at least Two or more witch neighbors for safety reasons. Humans and witches can be friends but they can never be married or in any intimate relationship. Witches can only be intimate with witches, humans can only be intimate with humans. Small price to pay for peace right? Does true peace even exist? And what's the point of such a stupid rule?Rouges are witches that hide away from everyone. They believe humans shouldn't exist because witches where born first and when humans found out about witches they burned some of them.that's why they made a plan to kill my dad the leader of the good witches. They thought if they could kill him the humans wouldn't have a chance. A war broke out between the good witches and the rogues after rogues killed my Dad.
