Alternate Perspectives Challenge


1. Defiance

It looks up at me, its eyes pleading; so weak. It knows that it will die soon, and all of its mewling, simpering race will follow.

It has killed many. It was strong for a creature so fragile. It will join the corpses of those it slew; in the mud.

Its death will be quick; the final blow merciful, though it deserves no mercy. I know no mercy.

It dares to look upon me, and its eyes change; it knows what comes. This is not fear. This is defiance. It beckons me to kill it. It will have its wish.
