      To the End
Dear Author, Deth will come for you Deth the name he bestowed upon me so long ago that I barely recall my real name is the bogie man that parents threaten children with when they misbehave Yet it is those who would rise against the King who fear me most for I am no bogie man at all They know I am real and who I serve I am the ghost who, in the dark of night, enters their home unseen, taking nothing with me when I leave nothing but the life of their loved one.I am the King s Assassin.I no longer exist in the world I once knew Those who knew me then mourn for me, as they do for my parents, believing me lost in the tragic carriage accident that took their lives.But I was lost and my parents were dead long before their carriage rolled over that cliff The new King taunted me with their deaths, and then threw me to the Assassin s Guild There, he said, I should be trained to live up to my name Deth I was seven years old.Deth is all that I am now, but for one tiny keepsake that I have hidden away How the King missed the glint of gold in my ear, I will never know I am only glad that I have it My childhood friend gave it to me as he and his family departed for distant shores, never knowing what fate had in store for me It is knowing he is safe and free from the darkness that consumes me is all that keeps me clinging to life.Photo Description A hooded man walks down a mist shrouded alley He is dressed in a black doublet with blue sleeves His face is shadowed by the hood he wears In one hand he holds a bloody knife and in the other a gold piece of jewelry.This story was written as a part of the M M Romance Group s Love s Landscapes event Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story This story may contain sexually explicit content and is intended for adult readers It may contain content that is disagreeable or distressing to some readers The M M Romance Group strongly recommends that each reader review the General Information section before each story for story tags as well as for content warnings.

    Good, tight story Iry character was well fleshed, reserved and honorable, giving even the despicable king Sirath a chance to fight Unfortunately the story shortness didn t give much stage to Akr and his relationship with Iry.Altogether 3,5 stars.
