'I will admit that at the time I was very proud of the progress that Beckett was making under my tutelage. Very skilled, and amazingly ambitious and determined, perhaps too much so. At the time I was even more determined than the boy himself was that his dream became reality. I was just as big a fool as he is.
My pride made me blind. In my pride I was unable to see what I was doing, unable to see the man that he was becoming. I still do not know what happened in the time I was gone, but I too have to accept my role in this whole travesty. I will not be making the same mistake again.'
Alric John Marriner, written in 1802.

Thought I'd try a lineless style for this one. I like how it turned out, but I doubt I'll be doing this again in a hurry! XD
