Prologue:

There was a small town with a small population that had recovered from many years of war many workers were former soldiers and one of these was Experious. He was a simple man who did no harm to others, he was kind and helpful. He was an excellent swordsman and great friend to everyone, no anger or malice was present in his character, his hair was of onyx black that would glisten in the sunlight as every hair moved upon his head. Shoes made by his hand were so exquisite that they were fit for a queen not one lace, stitch, buckle or string was out of its place.

Chapter 1:

On a stormy day Experious made his way home from work tired and worn, out he settled in for a glass of water at a local bar, little did he know what heinous act had taken place and was still not finished at his house. His wife had invited in a traveller, at his house, Experious had a guard who’s job it was to not allow any man into his house while he was absent, the guard lay dead on the floor with blood coming out of his stomach, intestines all over. She took in the man and fed him, then she bathed with him, staring upon his body she felt urges go through her body, heavy breathing, shortness of breath, checks rosy, she felt her heart want to leap out from her body, it was beating so fast that it ached behind her bosom as though it was begin restricted. The man took a chance and kissed her,he assumed she liked it she did not retract her lips from his. He slipped off her dress in her dress the sight he saw was her perfect body with beautiful skin and curves.Soon they were having intercourse she screamed louder as he went in and out, this filth was sickening but she had no remorse for her husband and continued.

Suddenly the door swung open, it was Experious, he had a horrible look upon his face, eye so much in rage that they would burn through the soul,he said in a voice with anger ‘Have I not been good, am I not your true love, how could you do this’. The women realised that she had done something so wrong that forgiveness in itself would not be enough.Maliciously she said ‘Darling you are my one and only but, I found this man more attractive and having strength than thee’. The young man tried to go for Experious but in a fit of rage Experious grabbed his head and smashed it into the wall splattering its insides and all. ‘what you have committed women, shall never be forgotten, I shall make sure that thee burn in hell and be treated no better than Lucifer’, he grabbed his sword and killed her chopping her body into pieces for all to see and then in the dead of night left town on a four legged beast.

He said ‘This bastard world must change I shall rid it of all its evil only then will I be at peace and may that whore, who I called my wife, be never free from the depths of shackles of burning flame”. Experious goes now as a hero to some and a threat to others from town to town fighting and killing all that commit evil, be it a man or women. Bloodshot eyes as bloody tears flow down his face out of anger for what life has bestowed on him. Experious wished that the lady of his house had not committed adultery little did he know all was not what it seems.

After many people he had fought and killed may, Experious ran into a strong and righteous man who without evidence was accused of murder in his village, as he fell after defeat to the great man the sparing of his life was an unknown relief he had not known. After the defeat Experious is sitting on the ground seeing to his wounds, he meets a travelling hermit who asks him and why he is troubled,flame still buried in Experious's sockets.

The hermit asks Experious about his past “What happened ? tell me it, will help” says the hermit.’My wife committed adultery and so I killed her lover and her,then I scattered their body for a month so no traces could be found ’Experious said.‘That is grave indeed my son, though you must move on and forget the past or it will be your death’.'I’m already dead,hermit’ he said‘this soul of mine is all black there is no light, none. ‘But you are so young,evil and good go hand in hand if there is no evil, for what reason would good exist. The world is both good and evil it is the way the world must be’.‘That is not enough for me,’said Experious ‘Now Experious you have done well, it has been long you have suffered enough, it is time for you to leave’ says the hermit. ‘She was not his lover, it was rape she tried to stop his entry to the premises of thee, he killed your guard then barged his way in,then he made her feed him and give him a bath or he would kill you, which she could not bare to feel or see. Them he forced your wife to have sex with and said to make sounds of pleasure he was holding a sharp thin wire like blade to her throat, this you did not see’.

‘It was you anger that changed your perception of what happened, blinded you as a man who had given up a beauty but, do not fear she is here for you waiting.Experious said to the hermit‘How can this be I accused her of falseness’,‘But Experious it was out of love that your anger exploded and from this you may rest in peace and tranquillity’. As Experious started to lose his consciousness and neared death due to the blood loss from his fight,he said in a whisper‘I did not know my love I apologize for what I had done to you I did not know,’Experious after this dropped his sword tears were running down his cheeks as he ………..
