Pain blossomed inside his chest, squeezing his heart and scorching his lungs. He shuddered. The tears felt cool on his face. They laughed, the sound ringing hollow in his ears.

Another blow landed before he could close his eyes. One of them pulled his leg back. The next moment, an ache started in his ribs, getting sharper by the second.

They loomed over him.

By the time they left, he stopped asking himself why. He just lay there, watching clouds float across the sky.
