[OB] What Might Have Been...


Recommended Posts

"Stop!" he finally bellowed. "Stop it! Stop killing each other!"

Everyone heard the voice of Kaladin Stormblessed, the man they all had grown to respect, and dropped their weapons.

Beard began telling Sah one of his stories, this one about meeting a listener when he was only three.

Kaladin turned, and saw King Elhokar on his knees. In one hand, his son, in another... a piece of paper. Storms, was that a sketch?

In the hush that had fallen over the battlefield, everyone could hear his whispered oath, spoken with a determination rarely heard from someone who was supposed to command a nation.

"Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination."

The first ideal of the Knights Radiant. A burst of light came from the ruler, revitalizing Kaladin and healing all the wounds the soldiers had taken during the scuffle.

The illusion faded, and he fell to his knees. Shallan and Adolin were both there to witness his weakness.

"Bridgeboy, I don't think this was a good idea." With difficulty, he stood.

"I know. Shallan, I won't ask you to do that again. I just... had to know what might have been."
