A bitter wind whipped across the graveyard. It penetrated Jae's linen uniform, seeping through to his bones. But he didn't care. He saw it as his rightful punishment for his failure. Whatever discomfort he experienced paled in comparison to what Analla had endured.
He gazed down at the grave. The small mound of dirt and tiny headstone were a pitiful sight to behold. No one so young should die. But the world didn't care. It made no distinction between the young and the old. It took who it wanted when it wanted.

On a side note, Redemption got its first review yesterday, and it was a 5-star rating! It really is a lovely, touching review and it was wonderful to know that a reader could experience so much emotion in a short story (especially one that I wrote!) It was also most touching to read in the review that he is a loyal fan and has read both The Lost Heir and Silevethiel. Knowing that I am beginning to build a fan base is incredible and something I had only dreamed of not too long ago. Thank you, Ed, for reading and enjoying my work, and thank you to all of you who have (or will) pick up one of my books. You are why I sit down in front of my notebook every day and write. You are why I strive to put out the best writing I can so you may have the most thrilling adventure possible. You are what keeps me motivated to keep trying when the words won't come. Thank you.
