Bitter

Chapter 1: Bitter

by vladazhael

He chose his cursed creations over my mother, and still I forgave him. He led me to slaughter those to whom I would otherwise have extended my hand in friendship, and still I forgave him. He burned the ships that were to save those few left who still loved us, leaving them for dead as if he had cast them into the grinding ice himself, and still I forgave him. But after all this, he died foolishly, without ever possessing again the precious treasures for which we fought so hard and so brutally. For that, there could be no forgiveness.
