with blood dripping down my spine, i realize it is all over. my life is wasted away and gone. i had joined a fighting group so i could earn money for my family, but what i hadn't realized is that it was to the death. i get one final glimpse at my family before a sword blade slices though my back. with final breath i say to my wife i love you. she lays over the dead body and cries for hours just sobs but she knows that there is nothing that she can do now. the last sight of my leaving body is my family sobbing and regret looks on their faces.
