A SOCIETY OF B E A S T S Scattered throughout this area are entertainment businesses, retail stores, and restaurants as far as the eye can see. Unfortunately, due to the war, half of the buildings have been destroyed and left to crumble on their own. Modern duplexes stand tall beside the ruins of a movie theatre. A large mall sits between a burnt office building and a demolished church. There is so much more wrong, but little do to about it.

Berkeley had been wandering for three hours. He found himself in the downtown area of his
city, surrounded by groups of people and a lot of noise. He kept his head down and his
hands on his deck of cards. He spotted a nearby bench and slithered through the crowd,
taking extra care not to bump into people too roughly. His train of thought turned to his
forearms. He was afraid the cracks in his skin- rather, porcelain- would worsen. He was
always living in fear.

Stupid doll form, he thought in his head. It must've been the millionth time that
year he thought that. Berkeley finally got to the bench and carefully sat down. He stared
only at his deck of cards as he slowly shuffled it, trying to drown out everything else.

Alyssa had her roller-skates on, and her dog by her side. She was roaming around,
careful not to trip or to crash into people. "Slow down, girl! This ground is cement, not
ice! It'll hurt a lot if I fall!" She spoke, skating around in zig zags, trying to catch
up with her pet. She sighed of relief as she finally caught up with her and carried her in
her arms. "Silly girl, slow down next time.." she said, before noticing a boy holding some
cards. Interested, Alyssa skated over to him. "Cool cards you have there. Do you know how
to do magic tricks with them?" She smiled.

Berkeley's concentration was promptly interrupted by someone speaking to him. He looked
up and scowled, but his glossy eyes and smooth face didn't appear very threatening or
angry.

"No," he retorted, placing the cards in a neat pile in his right hand. "It's just a deck
of cards."

He noticed the girl had a dog accompanying her. "You have a dog, can it do magic
tricks?"

"Oh, this little girl? I wouldn't call it 'magic', though. But I've been teaching
her to do some neat performances." Alyssa giggled, putting her puppy on the ground. "If
you'd like to see her do some tricks, I can show you what she can do." She told him. "But
you have to tell me your name first. Mine's Alyssa." she introduced herself, and then
pointed at her puppy. "That's Fluffy. Cute name, don't ya think?"

She blew fire. It was just a mere illusion with her Dragon, but no one knew that. She blew it in the circle that surrounded her, then up to the sky where the whole town would see it, not just downtown. After she was done blowing fire, birds of all different colors flew out of the smoke. Everyone around her cheered as she bowed. She then walked back and ran forward, jumping over the crowd and landing a few feet away from the bench a girl with her dog and a doll-like boy was at. Her chain bracelet jingled some, showing her dragon was nearby.

Berkeley was intimidated by Alyssa's optimism. Wasn't she disgusted, talking to a
functioning doll?

"I'm Berkeley," he answered. He shoved his cards into the pocket of his coat; the girl was
distracting him and it might somehow become lost.

Off to the side, he noticed a crowd, admiring some kind of performer. Unable to help
himself, he watched curiously. Finally, he turned back to the girl talkin to him.

"You're not some street performer like her, are you?" he questioned, arching an eyebrow.

The rusty head girl tilted her head as someone mentioned her. The doll-like boy did. She turned and looked at them, a question mark basically written on her face. She walked over to him and sat next to the boy. "Do you want to see my performance?" She offered, a smile playing over her lips. She liked to make people smile, maybe she could amuse this boy enough he might smile once. "I have tons to tricks to show. If magic doesn't interest you, tell me what does. I might be able to do it." She knew how to skate, dance, and play a few instruments. She looked up to the girl as well. "You, too. Just ask and I'll see what I can do."

"Not on the street, actually. More like, ice." Alyssa told the boy and then turned
her attention to  the girl. "Neat! Anything would do for me." She smiled, and almost
tripped as her dog started barking for no reason. "Not again.. Fluffy, be quiet." Fluffy
whimpered, and looked as if she needed to say something. "Fine.." Alyssa spoke, putting a
small basket around Fluffy's neck, with some money inside. "Buy some candy, too! You're
not the only only one who's hungry." She said, and watched her dog as it ran off. "I just
fed her before we came here.." She sighed, and crossed her arms.

Berkeley stared puzzlingly at the dog scampering off.

What kind of people have I met today? he thought to himself, making a disgusted
face. He crossed his arms, and his hands felt the cracks on his arms although there was
the fabric of a jacket above it. It didn't help his mood at all.

"Is there a trick to make the both of you disappear?" he asked the performer girl. A
bitter expression still lingered on his face as he looked straight ahead, hoping to avoid
all contact with the girls.

"Hey, that's not nice." She pouted. A soft growl from above was her and chains moving. Riegan moved her wrist some and grumbled something. She then moved so she blocked the boy's view. "What's got you all down in the blues?" She asked, her eyebrows pulled together and pouted even more now. Her emerald green eyes looked sadden and worry. Something was wrong with this boy, but she couldn't figure out what.

Alyssa crossed her arms and raised an eyebrow. "Excuse me?" She frowned. "What's
with the attitude?" She asked, her face softening. "You know.. If you don't want us here,
you could've just said so, nicely.." She looked down at her feet. She felt pretty bad, but
she was kinda worried. Did he get bullied or something? What happened? He looks
troubled.. Did I do something wrong? She thought.

"Ever realized that some people may not be coated in sweetness and rainbows like you
thought?" Berkeley said meanly. He felt the eyes on him, and he didn't like it at all. He
took out his deck of cards and tried hard to just focus on the numbers and symbols on the
cards. However, it didn't work.

He found himself blurting, "Trapped in a neighborhood for a good chunk of your life, only
able to explore five blocks of this world. And then the truth comes exploding out." He
pursed his lips ruefully.

"Well, aren't you sweet." Koth said sarcastically, he had been walking by but sometimes
he couldn't help but join in on conversions. Walking his way, he grew to love talking to
people, rude or not. The only time he felt threatened by them was when they had a gun,
which he learn really hurt, or when it was raining.

Riegan raised an eyebrow. "It's not the end of the world, you know. The truth exploded at me ever since I was little. It's nothing to be proud about." She nudged him gently, careful to not shock him or push him, but enough to grab his attention. "Life isn't all that bad in the 'real' world anyways. It depends where you sit in the rollercoaster." Riegan then stood and stretched. "What's your name, anyways?" The green eyed girl gave him a curious and kind stare. Riegan heard the guy being smart. The one who was walking by. "Spark." She whispered and his pant's leg caught on fire. It was just a small flame, but even a small flame would get anyone who didn't know how to keep it from spreading freaked out.
