It happened so fast. I knew that having a woman in my employment would be dangerous, but I foolishly believed I could obtain happiness if she stayed in my life. Like a blazing fire extinguished, she suddenly left me to drown in my once treasured but now suffocating solitude. ~*~*~*~*~ Disclaimer: This is a continuation of the one shot, 'Rage, Betrayal and Despair' from the fanfiction, "Tales of the Fiery Ifrit and the Iceberg". The events that transpire within this are not happy and will most likely leave you upset and with negative feels. I apologize in advance for the emotional turmoil this may cause you. Also, I DO NOT wish for the things that happen in this story to actually occur in the real book. This is just a what-if scenario, not something I want in the original story. P.S.- Almost all of the characters belong to Robert "Sir Rob" Thier. I do not own them.
