Second Sun #59


Hevne signalled her warriors attend. Then she raised her voice above the tumult:
"Warriors! For Kamkarra! We must seek out and strike at the warriors of the Fire Lord. Sympathy for innocence and our emotions must not keep us from that Fate. Let your heart accept no hindrance. Let your sword accept no delay. Forward!"

And the Fists moved into positions of attack; and the bloodshed and the slaughter were great; and in the silence that ensued the only tears were the tears of Hevne and her warriors as they left the dead behind them and did not look back.

    Wow. I wasn't expecting that. But it was a necessary evil, I'm afraid.

    I'm not happy, but she's the one in the middle of it all.

    No, Drew. Don’t feel bad. In a way, the slaughter was a small mercy. The poor wretches can be at peace, now.
