Pain crawled through every inch of his body; he felt his torso burn like a wildfire of his insides. And then, there was nothing.

An elf was buried under a thin blanket of snow. His body was hunched over in a tight ball, and his arms were strained as they held together the pieces of flesh that had ripped from his torso. A crimson liquid oozed out of the newly formed entrance in the elf’s body. It hurt.

His mind attempted to piece together the events that led him to that dire moment, but with each passing thought that shot through his mind, the pain grew deeper and more intense. The world was nothing but an illusion of vertigo as he desperately clawed onto what little life he had kicking. But he was suffering.

He was not ready to follow Death, he was not ready to give up everything he had fought for.

“It’s not your time, my dear…” Death vanished, and with her, the comfort and warmth. He was alone, cold and afraid.
