The Path Ahead
“Maybe it’s time to turn back”, she thought. The path ahead was far less welcoming now she was alone. She’d been here many times before, but always with him by her side. Guiding, leading, supporting. Now…well, now he was gone. She had to fight alone. It was the only way. That’s what he had told her.
Fight alone or not at all. Give up. Be weak.
Not a chance.
The path ahead may be dangerous, fatal even, but it was not an impossible one to follow. And follow it was exactly what she intended to do.
He would have been so proud.
