Drabble: Axe


My steps were silent. My family remained asleep.

The axe was heavy in my hand. A forgotten momento from our past. Still sharp after so many years.

I could see the red light from the fire as I made my way down the hall. This was the part where it could all go wrong. Where my plan could fall to ruin.

A careful look showed an empty room. But I still had to remain cautious.

My hand was on the latch of the door. Deep breath, then freedom.

I left my family and their peaceful ways.

My path would be war.
