Rule number twenty…
I squeezed her tiny body with my knees. I was her death shroud. A crow hovering for murder.One-hundred and four.
One-hundred and five.One-hundred and six heartbeats.Youre not stupid, child. You know youll pay for this the moment Clarity returns. There are worse things than death. Havent you learned that yet?
Then get off me and Ill make sure they dont maim you too much. Her smile was evil personified. However, wait another moment longer, and Ill personally tear you limb from fucking limb.The curse fell from her red painted lips.
I smiled, cocking my head. Not yet. I want answers first.
Ive given you plenty of answers.Nila padded over to Cut, her bare feet disappearing into the long grass. Kill didnt speak as she stopped in front of my father. The wind whipped her hair around her jaw, slicing and slicking, looking like oil in the breeze.
I said before that I forgive you.Cut shifted, rolling his shoulders in Kills grip.
Im not here to take that forgiveness back. I dont even know why Im here. She rubbed her face, trying to re-centre herself. I guess I wanted to say…be thankful. Your crimes have caught up with you…and Im there to see it. Her voice lowered as she looked back up. Im here to see you one last time. To know youre just human. That you were doing what you thought was right, but now you have to pay. We all have to pay, Cut. Nothing is free in this world, and youve taken enough from my family that from now on, weve paid our dues and deserve happiness. I wont celebrate your death. I wont think of you with hate or cruelty. But I will be free of you, and Ill be happy youre no longer there to terrorize my lineage.Shuffling away, she smiled softly. May God have mercy on your soul, Bryan Hawk, and for you to find redemption in whatever awaits you.
