Anxious movements guide her as she paces from window to window. It’s as though she could feel his presence. The gray eyes search through the darkness. Look right at him without seeing, blinded by their own light. Why does he torment himself by watching her? Should he have accepted his fate, be satisfied with less than seeking revenge? The idea is as repugnant to him as the human cadaver he has just butchered, as loathsome as his own disfigured body.
