One Little BirdToday, I had my grandfather's .22 rifle, just a little 1 shot bolt action gun, no harm right...? Wrong... I was out and about, shooting glass jars and used solo cups from Thanksgiving lunch...

I held it as it took its last breaths. I killed something without even meaning to. It was... horrifying... I will never aim at another living creature unless it is intended as food...

A red haired man with full red armor and a large axe was waiting at the side of the gates and saluted Geoffrey. "Sir! Its good to have you back, sir, but may I ask who are they?" He looked everyone behind Geoffrey.
Geoffrey smiled and waved his hand. "At ease, Kieran, they are a few of the nobles armies left over and the child that's been causing trouble on the streets
The day passes.I sit here in my room. I look out the window and see cars hurriedly passing by, busy with their lives, focused on themselves... Unknowing of a young one watching them, hoping one would look and see him through his window, hoping a random stranger out of 8 billion would note his existence, and place him of importance in their scope...

Time passes by faster than we expect. We look at an item, a friend, a co-worker... And minutes, hours, days pass by without our knowledge... And once we recollect how long it was? It felt like nothing, and yet seems so far of a distance in the scope of time.
