"Snake" (no one ever heard his real name). lost his parents when he was 7. They just disappeared one day, leaving young Snake alone. He never spoke another word. He spent the next 5 years in one orphanage. Eventually he ran away and burned down the orphanage. He got such a rush watching the fire that he couldn't wait to see the "beast" again. He quickly became known as The Torch, the most infamous serial arsonist in the country. Of course no one knew his true identity. He gradually fell off the grid and has been invisible for the past 2 years. It has been 10 years since his parents disappeared.
As he crouches behind the dumpster, his eyes dart left and right. There is no one around. His excitement grows. It's time. He pulls his hoodie closer around him, reaching into his pocket. His fingers caress the cold metal forcing a smirk to form on his lips. Pulling his hand out of his pocket he looks down, staring at the metal object in his hand. His eyes widen with anticipation. Soooo beautiful......so precious.
