Zero walked through the forest on the outskirts of the small city in which he lived. It was mid-summer and pretty hot. The sky was cleat of clouds and you could see pure blue for miles on end. Zero liked the little city. It was... Homey. He ran a hand through his dark black hair and walked on until he reached a river that cut down right in the middle of the forest. Zero had never ventured beyond it though, he just felt like it was bad to go to the other side. He bent down and put his cupped hands into the water. He then brought them up quickly and flung water a his face to cool off. Zero shook his head, water flying then looked at the forest beyond the river, wondering if he should go across or not.
