2. Edge

You wanted to die with your blade in your hands, so I left it there, although I longed to put it aside; to pull off our gloves, take whatever small connection of the flesh might have been left to us. You chose a soldier's death.

You called me king, and captain. Those were not the words I wanted, yet it was your end, your choice. I did not interfere. Still, when it was over, I took your vambraces to guard my sword arm; for I had lost you, my sword arm, to the falls, with your blade in your hands.
