Why couldn't he save them?
Silas had only been thinking of his childhood friend, when he’d joined the forces of Hoshido. Now the rest of Nohr’s army had called him traitor, and attack until they were felled as the enemy. He knew these men and women, their faces, had been told the families back home waiting for their return. He was a Nohrian, just like them- only now Kamui wasn’t, instead fighting and leading for Hoshido.
His best friend didn’t flinch at cutting down former countrymen…and Silas found himself afraid to ask for mercy, after all this was war.
