I would never

Cold breeze scared my warm skin. My heart was shattering inside. Under my feet was the world, shattering, the clouds gathering as if to cry about their loss today. Their side won, the other side was going off forever. Letting the peace grow. My eyes were blank, I didn’t even know I was shedding tears until I saw them drop.

“Malkai, it’s done.” said his enemy, they had to join forces to save the world. Their hatred for each other as not more than their love for their people.

“MALKAI” Steven screamed this time.

You turned around to see him. He frowned,looking at you. “What happened?”

You cast your sword to him, it was dripping with blood.

“Who did you kill? We signed a treaty, no one was to be killed.”

“Wait, where is she?”, he asked. He was getting a hint.

You took a deep breath.

“It’s her blood. They made it clear that they will only leave forever if we give her to them or kill her. Giving her was dangerous, her blood is rare, she came from a rare species. They would torture her. Experiment on her.” Another tear dropped.

“So what did you do?”

“Why is this so hard to understand? I jabbed my sword through her heart.”

Steven’s body was visibly shaking. Anger and hurt in his eyes.

“No. NO NO NO. You dumbf**k, you did not.”

“THEY WOULD HAVE STARTED A WAR” you screamed.

“AND WE WERE READY. WE WERE READY TO TAKE THEM DOWN. WHY DID YOU LET HER DIE?”


“Oh please, you didn’t care for her. You were the damned enemy, she loathed you. You would have done the same thing.”

“And here you are wrong. I would never, I could never. Did you see her eyes? They always glistened with life, love, and kindness. How could you see the life drain from those eyes?”

“To save this world. You would too. It was important.”


“No, you think of yourself as a hero because you saved the world. Call me a villain but I will end this world to save my world. I will end my life, to save but a moment of peace with her.”
