The first time that I remember it happening I was maybe six. I was playing beneath the branches of the large oak in the front of our house and I heard a loud flapping noise and I looked up to find a raven staring at me. I was terrified but didn’t know why; it was as if some phantom hand had clasped my heart its icy grip. I couldn’t tear my eyes away, even as I heard the crack of the tree branch above me.
There were the dead birds a year later, and then the goblin raiders about a half year after that.
I lost count of how many times it happened, but I did learn something from the whole affair. I’m not long for this world. That’s a simple fact and I won’t rail against it any more. No one lives forever, even heroes, and why should I be any different?
Stories though. Stories live on long after the person has died. Tales of valor and strength, poems of heroism and bravery. Even stories of villains are told to keep wayward children in line long after their time has come.
I may die, but the tale of my life will pass on for years to come and everyone will know who I am and what I accomplished.
