They were an abomination.
I came upon an abandoned village, one that reeked of death and desperation, madness and hatred.
It stank of the wyrm.
There weren’t more than a dozen houses and a single general store.
Only the store was occupied.
One-half of it had once been fully stocked with canned goods, clothes, and all the odds and ends one needs to survive as a farmer in Denmark. The other consisted of an eatery, in which I found four soldiers.
They sat at a table, the remnants of a great feast before them. Empty barrels of beer and bottles of schnapps littered the tables and floor around them, and they watched me with a bored curiosity.
Their swords leaned against the table, but the men seemed to pay little mind to the weapons.
I didn’t like the looks of the men, nor did I much care for the squalor around them.
Something was wrong.
“Where is he?” I asked.
Their answer was less than I’d hoped for and more than I wanted.
They stood up, pushing their chairs back, the swords tumbling and clattering to the floor.
And then the men joined.
They became an amalgamation of a man.
Too tall for the room, the four-headed beast leaned over, arms tearing at clothes and casting them away. Four mouths spoke at once, but I understood none of what they said, only the gleeful spite behind the words.
Hands joined and formed massive crooks, each tipped with bloody nails and broken bones.
I didn’t bother with the Colts.
I wasn’t in the mood.
I took the hammer from my belt and went in swinging.
Whatever the creature was, it had believed itself to be invincible. And perhaps against some other, it might be.
But I am not some other.
I am a Blood, and for those such as this abomination, I am death.

Once more, I would like to thank everyone for their kind words and messages. They have meant a great deal to me and will continue to as my family, and I move on from this tragedy.
I miss my son terribly, and I know I will do so every day. I am told the pain will lessen, and I believe this.
All I can do is move forward and keep him with me.
Thank you again.
