Scorpius - 5
Scorpius was loving the party. The music was fun, the food was great and everyone seemed to be having a good time. He didn't think everyone had come, but that was fine too.
He barely heard the noise from the birds over the chaos that reigned in the pool, but when he saw them, he smiled. They looked cute, small and light. "Hey, little one," he said, trying to get closer to one of the smallest, and then there was a screech from a slightly bigger bird and when it opened its beak, there were flames everywhere.
Later, he would say that he felt the flames before seeing them, which would be ridiculous, but then everything became a blur, with only pain registering until someone pushed him into the pool (or maybe he feel) and the world wend dark.
