Seeds of Doubt

Henii's picture

After tonight I have to believe that Shansii was telling the truth about the woman who played with her was real. Olunara; she came to me in a dream and looked so much like my Ivi that it was uncanny. But there was an otherwordly look to her. She was…oddly friendly and polite. Far more so than I would have expected someone to be who sided with the Legion.

Ivinara was far too young at the time to understand why and left before I could explain myself.

She acted as though she had no choice, perhaps wanted to make amends… She seemed earnest but something didn’t sit right with me.

The War of the Ancients and the Third War were opening acts. They could fail a thousand times with no consequence. Shillan, Shansii, my daughter, they only need to be killed once.

She showed me countless worlds being burned by an infinite amount of demons. I was stunned…I could barely comprehend their numbers, so vast was the burning tide it dwarfed the invasion of Draenor and Azeroth by an imaginable amount.

It’s true, you certainly have potential. You simply don’t have the time to learn on your own. But with the proper teacher, you could not just save them, you could make sure they never have to risk their lives helping you save them.

Her retort to my declaration of being powerful enough to protect my family. I tried to believe it. Light I really did. But with all my training and gifts she stripped me of all my power with only a thought. She, who sided with the Legion, rendered me helpless.

But she offered to teach me, to grant me the power to stand against the Burning Legion, to ensure the safety of the people who matter the most to me. But I can’t do it, I won’t, that power is a terrible thing, dangerous and corrupting.  I couldn’t give in to the temptation even if it meant keeping them from harms way, it would be wrong

…Right?
