Bloodlust - For the 'History of Violence' challenge

Title: 'Bloodlust'
Author: Jay of Lasgalen
Word Count: 100

Author's Notes: For the 'History of Violence' challenge. Yes, I know it's late. A week late. Inspiration only struck last night!


Bloodlust


I plead with my sons to cease their endless quest for revenge – yet while orcs still roam these lands, I know they cannot rest.

I understand their anger, but can they not understand my fear? One day, they will not return. One day, one will return alone, bearing his brother’s body – and I will still lose them both.

Yet I cling to hope. Hope that one day, the cold-eyed, vengeful warriors will go, and my sons will return. I have to believe that that day will come.

I watch, heavy-hearted, as they ride out again – vicious orc-slayers consumed by bloodlust.
