    Thanks, Ralph, that's 4.

It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo

    Thanks velo. Do we need to describe the death scene in detail (the deterioration of the body / person's death throes agony) or just someone dying somewhere in the story is enough? Is it limited to humans?
    I threw a glance at humankind and saw them treacherous and feeble.
    Severe judges, cruel, unkind and fools who are always close to evil.
    Before their frightful, anxious mob, indifferent hate forever rages.
    Not learnt the lessons from the ages!
    What use are wise and tempered words?

    I don't know. Tell me in your story. Interpret it how you choose. As long as there is some identifiable connection to the prompt, you're good.

    Comp is up a day early. Had some down time and wanted to get it done. Nothing is changed from last month except the host a lot prettier.

    Death scenes have been done...well...to death.
    So I'd suggest trying something outside of the box for this'n.
    I look forward to being amazed by our incredible contestants!
