So, I hunted them. I sought challenge after challenge, beast after beast, prey after prey. I've enjoyed hunting them. Sometimes they wounded me greatly, brought me to the brink of death, but I still enjoyed the hunt. I finally found a meaning in my life again, through a form of hunting I never practiced or even desired to practice while I was a wood elf. And now, I am content with my new life. I've accepted what I am, and grown to like it. If my people could see me now, they'd call me a monster. Indeed, that's what I've become. But it can't be undone, and then why is it bad that I've come to like what I am? They may judge me, but I care not. Not any more. I am no longer one of them, no matter how much I'd have liked to be. And I have accepted it by now. A monster I may be, but I'd rather be a monster with a meaning in life, than live a life with no meaning whatsoever. - Flora E'Lyn, 1 year, 3 months, and 20 days before Twilightfall
