3. Retreat

The final chapter of this series. Of course, comments are most welcome!

Never have I felt so empty. I am nothing but the hunger for vengeance which drives me ever on.

her smile, her laughter, her love of life, her touch, so gentle and kind, a mother's touch. There was never a hurt she could not heal, never a wrong she could not right.

Never forget...

why I hunt. Why I never rest. Will I ever be sated? Can this pit ever be filled by the bodies of my enemies?

Will I ever be home again? Will I ever be whole again?

I will never forget...
