Pain, and rage, and haze.

Those were the only things in the world, to her, the only things her broken mind could feel. Pain, and rage, and…haze.

Trapped deep beneath the surface of her mind in memories long buried, one feeling became searingly clear.


Her eyes snapped open.

“Svipul?” asked a soft, ragged voice. “Is…is it really you?”

It was as if her heart had been torn open, hearing that voice again, seeing her scarred, sightless eyes.

“It’s me, Runa.”

The woman’s hands shook. “Svipul,” she whispered, voice breaking. “I thought…I would never…”

…never see her again…

“Everything will be fine.” Her eyes glistened with unshed tears. The smile she wore trembled. “I’ll get you out of here. We can be together.”

…beyond saving…

“I…I never stopped…stopped hoping. I always knew you would come for me…”

…only a shadow…

“I would never leave you, Runa.” She took her hand. “You know that.”

…a faded memory…

“But…this is…” Runa shook her head frantically. “No, Svipul, this is—”

A memory.

“Runa.” This time, she couldn’t keep the tears in. “Runa, I’m so sorry I couldn’t save you the first time. But this time…this time is different. A soul for a soul, and endless suffering for true life. She cast you into the darkest part of Hel, but I brought you back.”


…never see her again…

“No!” The chair flew back as Svipul stood. “This is a memory! I will see her again!

Then darkness engulfed her vision, and again she felt nothing.
