“Sometimes, my boy, what you fear most is often found within. So, be careful of how quickly you judge. Be careful of how quickly you condemn. Most importantly, be careful of how quickly you kill.”
Desmon Rune looked at the elder, this level of respect keeping him from saying something rash. “I’m not afraid,” he said.
“Of course not; there’s nothing to fear. Surrounded by the words of so those who lived before you, learning by the actions of those around you…So many possible offerings to give those who will follow you.”
Desmon walked backwards towards the door, anxious to get to the Learning Hall.
