Cassius stumbled out of the woods, blood dripped down his slashed face, he had done it, he had found his purpose in life, just then two elderly warriors came running up to him
"Ah, we have found you in time Cassius son of Crassius"
"Aye, and not a moment to soon, you must return with us to the village"
"Why, what has happened?" Cassius asked ignoring his wounds
"It's your father, he left to fight the Teshun Rebels and has returned not to long ago"
"He is mortally wounded and your are required to be there when he chooses the new chief"
"What???, why did he do this? when did he return? how is he..."
"Save the questions for later, we must hurry back, but I must ask you this, did you complete your hunt?"
"Yes, I did"
They arrived at the village four minutes later only to find his father was dead
"Chief Crassius died not to long before you got here young Cassius" one of the village elders said
"Who is the new chief then?" Cassius asked
"You are young one"
"What about my brothers? they are older then me"
"Yes, but Crassius has chosen you to be the next chief, anyways one of your brothers was slain in combat"
"Very well then, I accept the position of village chief"
Just then the other villager started to shout
"Fire, it's burning everything in it's path!" one warrior shouted
"Who ever did this will pay with their lives!" another said
At the moment the roof collapsed on top of them.
It was morning by the time Cassius awoke, the village was smoldering ruins and the corpse of his warriors lay every where
"This is a crime against my people" he said as he rolled over the corpse of human "After all my kind have done for them, this is what they repay us with? I swear by the gods above and the demons below that I will avenge the fallen"
