A Past Untold
Zane completed his nightly routine:looking at himself in the mirror and wondering why he was the way he was.You see,Zane isn't what some would call 'normal',his skin is covered in strange lime-green marks.He had them since he could remember,but his memory isn't the best.He even asked his adopted mother what happened,but she never actually answered.
"oh good," Zane told himself as he looked at the date,"tomorrow's my birthday.And better yet,on a school day." Zane put the thought out of his mind for now and decided to take a night walk.
As he came downstairs,his adopted father grinned,"Breaking the routine are we?"
"Your powers of observation are still in check." Zane smiled,"Don't worry,I'll be home in time for bed." Zane had few friends,and his adopted father was one.They seemed to get along better than most ordinary fathers and sons.
