But this one was of an age where he sought not the thrill of battle anymore and now so sought only a wife and child. And after a while the hero was wed to one of the fairest of the maidens that a true hero should be married to, good or evil. Oh yes, the road of a hero could be lead towards darkness, but that is a matter for a different tale to tell. And so in the quiet town of Brook the hero made a home for he and his wife. And shortly after there home was blessed with the face of a well child, and all seemed to forget the life of heroing that the hero had left behind... And these days so lasted for five years of harvest. But in Fate's malcontent she sent to the quiet Brook a dragon as fierce as any that the hero had ever so witnessed and all ran to the house of the hero in fear. But the hero had gone to fish in a far away land and so no man was able to be saved from the breath of that drake. And when the hero returned he found all that he loved in Brook laid to waste.

And he thought for a long while and soon came up with a truly horrible idea... Tweet
