Kendra and Elkrunner are dead. That thought won’t get out of my mind. I feel as if I have let the Professor down. I feel ask if I’ve let Liam down. I’ve let everyone down….
I landed the killing shot, I felt my friends around me, I succeeded in my quest to avenge my dead friend. And what do I get from it? I lose my friends, some of the only friends I’ve had in my life. And a head. I get a head. I will place this on Embreth’s desk and I will make her bring my friends back. I can’t go through this, I can’t lose someone I care about again.
As I shift Walter’s weight on my shoulder I can’t help but wonder aloud to Bjorn, “How is it, the loyal and good die, and the evil and cursed live?”
I feel a new anger surge within me. Why am I carrying Walter? What has he truly done for me? Who has he made a pact with and why does he live?
