How you have changed, Darken Rahl.

The last time I saw you,

I had just saved your life.

You told me that I couldn't know

How happy you was

That I had escaped death.

I know it was you

That sent that Mord-Stih

After Renn and I.

But if I had been killed,

You would have died as well.

You gave me as much of a "thank you"

As you will ever give me.

You told me that I couldn't know

How happy you was

That I had escaped death.

I replied,

"I wish I could say the same for you."

Laying on your back on the ground,

Clad in filth instead of royalty,

You smiled at me

And seemed happy by my wit,

Genuinely happy.

I never thought

That I would see you act

In such a "human" manner.

Then, you grabbed the Keeper's arm

And created a rift

That allowed you to escape.

You mocked Richard.

Then, we saw nothing but your back.

Now I am seeing you again

In a totally different state of mind.

You ordered Cara to kill me,

Just so that she can prove

Her loyalty to you.

Is this my reward

For saving your life?

What did you do to Cara, demon?

What did you do to her

In order to rebreak her?

How can you stand

To look at yourself

In the mirror

After what you did to Cara?

How can someone

Be as evil as you?

How can someone like you

Ever claim not to serve the Keeper?

Blood red is your garment.

Cruelty is your mantle.

You are once again

The person that you have always been.

You are once again

The person that you will always be.

I was a fool to ever think

That you could actually change

For the better.

I was a fool to ever think

That you could be different.

How you have changed, Darken Rahl.

It's as if you're a totally different person.
