"So you got your revenge, was it worth it?" Came the emotionless voice from behind Don Pedro. He started slightly, and turned to find the imposing figure of Death himself, watching him with an unreadable expression. The angel who had allowed him his quest stood behind Death, looking shame faced.
"Tell me Pedro, was it worth the lives you ruined in the process?"
The former commander opened his mouth to defend himself and then closed it again when he realized he couldn't. He glanced at the portal, and the grieving ones who had loved his enemy, and then at the ground, suddenly ashamed.
Death tutted and snapped his fingers, closing the portal, before sweeping away with measured steps, leaving Don Pedro to his regrets.
