Decision, A

19. The Naming

So many names…..If it were possible he would keep one, and forget the rest.

A ridiculously simple choice, it would seem to an ordinary person. But he was not ordinary.

What name would history remember him with? What engraving would be embossed on the headstone of his tomb?


Without doubt…. it had a ring to it, impressive and powerful. Even he felt awe at the sound of it. Not just a jewel anymore, or flame of green fire in a silver eagle, but a sign of what he was. What he would be.

Yes, that would be his name.
