Want to know what bugs me? Evil. Everything horridly, disgustingly evil. Even the word itself is horrible.
The thing is, I had just defeated Grendel - that huge, freaking, murderous monster that terrorized King Hrothgar’s kingdom - and everyone is celebrating my victory. And the next thing I know, Grendel’s Mother comes along and kills the king’s best friend. And then she stole my trophy - Gr

She told me to listen.
I heard her.
She clearly told me in that beautiful voice of hers. I know it. I know it.
But I didn't listen.
I didn't listen to her advice. I didn't heed her warnings, and now I’m stuck; trapped in a place I don’t want to be.

In some cases, she didn't need someone to save her. But in other cases, she needed a bodyguard. And I always thought that would be me. But it’s not me.
She doesn't need me.
And now I understand what it means to be completely broken inside.
