He was selfish to think he could come to the mountain without judgement, but the longer he linger by the lakeside, the more he became aware of the judgement that passed. They seemed to think he came snivelling back looking for forgiveness but all he wished for was the love of his daughter. He cared not for Igbo as he spouted his threatening words, just simply that his daughter remained by his side. Kopec was all he had left. She reminded him of Nima but her appearance was clearly his. She wore the colours of the Lascrofes with dignity. It made him proud.
Kiel kept his brows knitted together, his eyes lowered to the pebbled beaches as he wandered across the far side of the lake, a far as he could get away from the caves - his caves. He felt stupid, lingering so feebly but he couldn’t rest easy around the Hellmaw lot. There was something poisoned in the brains, a religion of sorts put in place by the Empress herself. Toxic. Disgusting. He often thought it better to do away with the old and bring in the new.
Change was much better suited when the tainted were done away with no?
He blinked, halting at the lakeside, toes within its icy depths. The shock of the chill tossed away his darker thoughts and cleared his mind. Death and murder was something he would have done months before… He’d been working on his sanity enough to know when to banish certain thoughts and when to keep others around. He couldn’t always entertain his darkest desires… Not when the cost could be so pricy. If Igbo was gone… Kopec could easily turn on her father. Igbo had been there for her afterall, more than himself.
Where was she anyway? It had been a while since the girl had been seen by himself. Sure, her scent often lingered but with Igbo following his every move… He couldn’t get a moments peace to seek her out. What better time than now he supposed… Throwing his head back, he let out a howl, welcoming her presence to him, asking her to join him.
