He had never been political
Had never fought the system back.
He lived a life beneath the radar
they killed his brother.
His innocent seven old baby brother
who never made it home from school
Blood for blood
Whatever the reason.
Driven by angst and rage he lit the rag
The first of many.
There was no number
that would ever bring
his baby brother back.

It was on the top of the hillside near the moat where they picked a spot to sit, his arm wrapped casually across her shoulders. The pale moonlight shining just enough to expose silvery skin. They kissed and delved beneath each others clothing.
Thinking back, Rebecca closed her eyes and saw him again, about what she had seen, then ran from the place where such a spectacular memory was created, down the hillside home. Where she would hide under her covers and pretend she had been there all night.
