you, and she cannot live under the roof of a murderous father either. Your death flashesthrough my mind again. I must die… it’s the only way any of us will find peace.
Bright red tears traced by a trembling finger, I had nothing to lose, nothing to lose It crashes through the dark memories.
How saddened would you be now, I wonder? How sad to see me returned to my true self?How horrified would you be if you were to watch as I mercilessly cut down the ones whotook you from me? I care not if they were involved any more; as long as they are with theones who murdered you, they will die. As I let loose the beast, my emotions also break free. I do not know why, but I’m crying. The tears I could never summon before nowdrench my face and mix with the blood.

Because everyone returns to heaven, some day,You'll never need to say goodbye.
At last, I find what I’ve searched for. The man spoke the truth; in the ancient ruins of Fei’Yin to the north, there is rumored to be a device that can restore life to one lost, but ata price. Already, it is quite obvious to me what the price will be. I care not, though… thisworld and its inhabitants no longer require me.
As I trudge through the thick snows of the Northlands, my mind is filled with thoughtsabout you, my love. Ice has formed on my armor, and I’ve lost almost all feeling in my
