He looked at the terrified coven. "What are you waiting for? You're free! Run!"

A child hobbled forward. "We can not run. If we run, they kill us worse."

"How can you be killed worse? Run now while you can!"

"The child is right," a crone spoke. "If we run, they shall torture us and still kill us."

"What of you, wolf?" He turned to the one Werewolf.

"I can not force them to flee and will stand with them till my death."

"If we can not run, we shall fight!" Salem turned to battle, knowing his life was changed forever.

The End
