I liked this. The way it's done I kind of get the impression that this was Taran's dad. You do a very good job portraying the emptiness and blank horror of this, like when the guy's wife is killed and he just steps over the body. Even so, the ending is kind of redemptive and very well written.

Nice story! I always thought the fate of the Cauldron born was one of the saddest parts of The Book of Three series. I would've liked the ending to maybe be a little more hopeful or satisfying, as the soldier is finally getting to die, but I thought you handled the passage of time and the loose conciousness of the Cauldron born really well.

What a haunting story. It's very short, but very poignant all the same. Is the narrator supposed to be Taran's father, or just a random Cauldron-Born? Either way it was terrifically sad and thought-provoking.
I like how the title ties in with the last sentence. And I can think of nothing else to say except wonderful job; keep up the good work!
Lion be with you,
