The quiet triggered the regret, or at least a pause.

Silence left only the echo of the wine bottle fracturing into a million pieces, shattering the thought that this was a meeting of like-minded conspirators.

Gregorio grabbed for Daria’s pass keys to Dominion’s vaults.

She was willing to share to take down the evil power lord, but Gregorio wanted the hero worship for himself.

She had no choice but to unleash her secret strength, and tear his head clean off.

The look on Sebastian’s innocent kitten face, said it all.

She regretted imprinting the tiny creature with the grisly scene.

    Poor kitty. What a sight to see. I can only imagine the feline nightmares. Good one.

    Shalom,

  2. Ouch. A fitting end for a traitor, but I feel for the poor traumatised Sebastian. I hope Daria has some power to erase the memory.
