Disclaimer: It's all the Professor's. Thank you, sir.
Author's Note: Ok, I know, dead horse, but I can't help it, and this one is slightly different from those before it - I think it's the first which is all in his voice.
ETA: Sorry, I misread the challenge post. This was actually for 'mistakes'.

Why do you run?

I was mistaken.

I would not have it now, were you to offer it freely.

They were not my words; my thoughts; though in my voice they were spoken.

Forgive me.

What is this?

There is red upon the ground, and upon my cloak.

Whose mortal wounds are these?

Black shafts. The wounds are...mine?

I am betrayed. Why should I be stronger ‘gainst it than he was?

Ever did it betray the dreams of Men.

It is a curse.

To think that I could wield it...

This mistake is dearly paid.

The price is fair.
