under my heels
and still too close
-Are you thinking about that little miserable girl again?
-Don't you dare speak of her like that. Don't you dare. -Evan answered. The voice laughed in an annoying way.
-Everything you've done, just to chase some lost memory.
-She's more than that.
-You fool. Most likely she doesn't even remember you. It's been a hundred years since you left. An eternity. It's enough time to forget... what hurt you.
-I never meant to hurt her.- said he, confident.
-You know, better than anyone, it's never that simple, is it, boy?- the voice continued talking, in a serious way this time. -Abandon all hope. Go back to the battlefield, the only place in this world where you belong. Let the games for the children, for you are no longer a child. Neither she is.
-But how could I abandon the only thing that has never left me. Chasing me down in my memories...
-And what exactly do you plan to do when you supposedly find her? Who do you think you are, her saviour? Do you think she'll throw herself into your arms and promise you eternal love? You're an entirely different man now. No longer the one she used to know. Time changes us, maybe she's another one too. No longer 'your girl'.
-I could love anything in which she had become.
-Enough. Wake up. Warriors are not allowed to dream.
Evan squeezed his fists, but said nothing.
-So, am I right? I see. What did you think it was going to happen? That she was going to sit down and just wait for you to come back, in that little remote village? While her life passed before her eyes?- he looked down. -And if so, by some strange miracle, how can you possibly believe that she'd want to be with you. Maybe she's met another one. Ever think of that?- Evan grited his teeth. -She owes you nothing. Poor stupid selfish boy. She left long ago, and you have no idea where to. You will never find her again.
