735 In Response to Chapter 35 of HotM [21 October 2005]

Found among life’s cruel fate,
a need not wholly realized
but acted on completely.

“I will find you.”

If they had known this fate,
would the motions made
still have been done?
Perhaps at the beginning,
but at the end,
could he have let her stay
in the realm of the underworld?
With this change to their story,
could the emotions that drive them
survive and remain as they were?
But his choice had been made.
As he swung the blade,
he gave up the life he had
and thus may accept this turn
while still holding on to the one thing
that changed him to his core.
