The fire crackled without warmth, demon eyes glaring hate, dying remains of a world gone mad since his father’s trial. Lifting his eyes to meet those of the man who sired him, raised him, trained him, he stared at the severed head hung from the post across the clearing. Nothing else was left.

Stood where they’d left him, as the fire burned the remainder of his life away. When the eyes winked dark, all would be gone.
