A Message from Darken Rahl

A Message from Darken Rahl

I DO NOT own "The legend of The Seeker" TV series or "The Sword of Truth" novel series. The novel series is owned by Terry Goodkind. GOD BLESS HIM :-)


I am, Darken Rahl, son of Panis Rahl, and Lord of D'Hara, sending a message to the people of D'Hara.

A message to the Seeker and his followers.

I know you hate me. I know that you despise me.

I am not asking for forgiveness. I am just asking for your fair judgement.

I am asking you to put yourself in my shoes. Can you do that?

Can you imagine the feeling of a young man when his own father boasted in front of him that he sired another son that would kill his elder brother?

Can you imagine how I felt when my father told me that I am evil and I should be destroyed?

Can you imagine how I felt when I knew that my father -the one who was supposed to love me more than anyone in the world- was doing his best to fulfill that prophecy?

He was supposed to help me. To help his own son. But he preferred to kill me.

He chose to let his two sons fight each other to death.

I have always wished to have a little brother or sister. I really wanted that.

Any boy would love to have a baby brother.

But imagine how I felt when I knew that my baby brother, the one I have wished for, would be the one to kill me?

My father loved Richard more than he loved me, and I hated that.

I just wanted to have a family. A loving family.

Maybe if my father believed in me, he would have helped me, along with my brother, to be a good person.

To avoid my horrible destiny.

Maybe if he hasn't fulfilled that prophecy, I wouldn't have turned to such a tyrant.

But the fact is that, I am not a tyrant.

I was young, alone, scared and desperate. I had to do anything to protect myself.

Everything I did, wasn't for pleasure.

I never meant to kill my father, but when I killed him, I didn't see him as my father. He was my enemy. He wanted me dead.

I wasn't happy when I ordered my men to kill all male babies in Breniddon. I was just trying to protect myself.

I never enjoyed killing people. I never enjoyed the scene of blood.

I don't even like red wine, like everyone thinks.

I never wanted to crush the members of the resistance.

It is the Seeker's fault. He poisoned the people's minds.

He convinced them that I only kill them for pleasure.

I am fighting the Seeker only because he wants me dead. It is self-defense.

Survival is a human nature, after all.

When I wanted to gain the Confessor's power, it was only to bring peace.

I was going to use it to confess the Seeker and his followers, to put an end to this endless war.

I want peace just like you do, and maybe more.

I suffered more than anyone of you.

I have to live with the burden of killing all these innocent people.

So, in case you haven't noticed, I am already punished.

I just need to end this.

I want to end this war. I want peace.

I want to be a good ruler. A responsible ruler.

That's why I am asking for...

HELP

I need your help, Richard.

I need your help, Kahlan.

I need your help, Cara.

I need your help, Zedd.

I need your help, my people.

Help me to end this war.

I am not deceiving you. I really want to end this.

Please, let's find a way. An agreement.

Not only for my sake, but for everyone's sake.

No one benefits from this war more than the keeper.

And I have no intention to serve him anymore.

So...

I am waiting for you, Richard Rahl.

I am waiting for you, baby brother.

I am waiting at the People's Palace.

I am waiting for you to join me, so that we can fight together against evil.

I am waiting for you to believe in me, to believe that I still have a chance.

To believe that I still have time to save my soul.

Don't be late, my brother.
