Author's Notes: Advent Children spoilers.
It was in the Northern Crater we first understood what death was. Somehow Kadaj had seemed so much younger there, still with the pure innocence of a child, the innocence Loz and I would never know.
I stood silently in the shadows, my back pressed to the wall. They didn't need me then, my strong brothers. The weaker brother was left out of so many things.
I watched Kadaj fascinated with a bird that had managed to wonder its way into our sanctum. He watched it flutter around, trying to find its way out. The panic in the small creatures movements seemed to amuse him.
Loz looked over at me, wondering what he should do, but I had no answer for him.
Then Kadaj lashed out, grabbing the bird firmly in one hand. I wanted to step forward and tell him to let it go, but I stayed where I was and watched Kadaj crush its fragile body in his fist.
The bird fell to the ground dead with a hollow sound.
When I looked back at Kadaj he was smiling.
