Night Eagle felt a stab in the center of his being. He opened his eyes, as if wanting not having heard those words. A lifetime of sacrifice and effort devoted to prepare for the opportunity to obtain total freedom and in the last minute lose the chance. He felt as if losing the floor, to fall into confusion and desolation.
