Ketil fell back from the platform, the spike rupturing his heart as it passed through his spine. His skull shattered as it hit the concrete floor. As his long hair flew back from his head during his descent, it was revealed that he had carved the unhallowed symbols into his forehead as well as his torso.
“That room ran red with blood,” Ketil stated quietly as his companions watched him, unsure what to say. “It matters not to me. It was many years in the past. But that my family should have seen that image—that my mum and my sister should have to see…”
“Best not to think on such things too long, Guv,” Robin suggested, touching Ketil’s arm with surprising gentleness. “Ain’t a thing you can do to change the past. Stiff upper lip, y’know, and soldier on.”
