Well - is it part of a larger work, or is there background in your head?  If it's part of a larger work, an explanation to set it up is fine.  If it's just in your head - the writing stands on its own or doesn't. Cheesy

It's part of a larger work, but that's the only part I've actually written so far - I was using my English exam to explore the characters' interactions.

Basically, this is a flashback into Jared's past - he is remembering time he spent with his brother, Marcus, before Marcus died.
Jared is the leader of a small troupe of people living on the borders of a town (not sure exactly why - originally it was vampires, before I decided that that really wouldn't work with the setting, now they're normal people with some reason for rejecting society.  That sounded less fanfiction-y in my head...).  On this occasion, he was going to talk to someone, or a couple of someones, who were candidates for joining their group, but it was a trap set by a group who oppose them (either a personal grudge or some legal reason, undecided), and Marcus was killed.

Um...I think that's all I've got on background so far - like I said, it was just to get an idea of characters and their interactions.  The story itself is still a bit up-in-the-air.

Sorry about not making this all clear beforehand!   Smiley

What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter as if he is a man, but when he is a spinning ball of ammonia and methane must be silent?
