Cleansed by little-owlette Cleansed by little-owlette
It had always seemed necessary -- that final moment of cleansing, giving back to the earth what he had taken away. It was not enough merely to lick the blood away -- to do so would have been animal, barbaric. No, this was a necessity -- an act of penance and grief, washing the blood from the hands which had taken yet another life.

I spent way too long on this, and yet I still can't call it finished!
