In this world, there’s no justice. None to share, none to revel in, none to spare, none to settle in. Our hearts roam the earth for light, however, at times find darkness. In this darkness, only the strong fight and aspire for light, for good, for truth! Nonetheless, in this darkness, the light may never shine, nor will it ever shimmer for some, but for the fortunate, it may provide sufficient brightness that may lead to another adventure or endless adventures. In the end, some destinies are not meant to end in happiness because the future of hope may lie with the disheartened of others.
This darkness is not for the faint of heart, this man, whom wielded a sword, had no justice in his soul. He had a only one notion, one purpose, to kill. The killing was not his goal, but only the mission. When called upon, he had but to do what was entitled of him. There was no justice in his eyes.
There came a time when he was called upon, by a selfish man, and this man requested that all men who dare blasphemed of their spouse, he shall seek them out and kill them. And for a time, this was true. When a cowardly man spoke with malice of his beloved wife, this man sought out the delicate woman and murdered her on the spot. For centuries this has happen. Until one day, one blessed day, a man who loved his wife dearly, made the most unfortunate mistake of berating his wife.
Before we speak of this tale, I would like to take an adventure of why this was taken place at all. A time, when a man loved his wife with the utmost reverence; he thought the ground he walked on, whilst with her and near her, was unworthy of him in every respect. There was no end to his passion and endearment towards her. He would have died a million times and came back just to ensure her safety and livelihood were not endanger. Ah, such unknown love expressed upon another, almost too real to be true, yet, it was.
When he came home, from a long day of tilling and scraping for his sacred treasure, his heart had fallen, he was devastated at what he saw! Oh, he was lost, distraught; for there is a time when men must understand and not understand the ways of life, the ways of choices, the ways of living in an unjust world of pain. He sat, he sat for days; pondering and ruminating what to do. There were good thoughts floating in his mind; evil thoughts as well. Nevertheless, the one and evil idea of man has took form. Taken it’s place among the living for the very first time. Surely, we all thought that we could conjure such harsh imaginations, however, never to see such dreams become reality?
Not in this world, not in this lifetime. He went to the library, search endlessly for a book and within this book, he opened it and there it was.
She was on her way home from work, it was an arduous day and all she cared for was seeing her beautiful husband. Notwithstanding the unheard words spoken about her. There had been many times when people would speak bleak of their lover, but had no intentions of pursuing such recompense. Now for her, as we speak, he was trailing her every step. She felt something, someone lingering about her. She had chills scurrying about her arms, even her legs, and she shaved last night. Her environment began to get dark, she shivered with fear and there it was! A touch, a touch of a girl friend on her right shoulder. Light came back and all was well, for now.
She embraced her friend and seized her close for comfort. The friend was confused, didn’t know they were that close of friends, nonetheless, appreciated the gesture. They spoke and walked home. In the time of their walk, there still drifted the man. The dome that awaited her. As she parted with her friend, she walked up the stairs, her husband was not far along either. She placed her keys on the table and walked to the room, and before she could breathe, there he was! She was immovable! Frightened would be an understatement of her emotions of that unrelenting moment. He walked up the stairs, and he placed his keys on the table, he heard a scream and shriek from the bedroom. He ran towards it and opened the door. His heart, mind, soul, all fell to the ground! He fell to his knees of fear and hopelessness.
But, he never forgot this mans countenance, the menacing look in his eyes; the tall and darkness that surrounded him, no, he will never forget; ever!
