Wow. A tale I couldn’t put down. Thanks for sharing it.
I really love the picture too- did you draw it?
I have to admit I am in 2 minds about the ending. On one hand I appreciate that Marcus got what he gave. It is a nice karmic ending.
On the other I am having trouble shifting the thoughts that Jeremy became like Marcus in that he was also the “judge” and “executioner”. Jeremy did show Marcus a small mercy by using a sharp blade but??
I realise the time period this is set in has an impact on things too but I still feel slightly unsettled with the outcome.
Perhaps I am too influenced by Disney movies at the moment?!
