It took only a moment to change everything.
He came, as black as death, and Death he brought with him.
I didn’t understand at first, I saw his grim expression and I thought it was because of his incident in the woods, that he was still aching, but then I saw his hands shaking.
Something was wrong. Very wrong.
Sorrow in his eyes, mournful sympathy on his face.
He spoke. I didn’t want to hear.
Two words: “Your Father...”
It was the moment everything changed.
I didn’t want to hear, but in my heart I knew.
Now I was alone.
