In life he sinned against God and man. Pride and ambition killed all he loved, and more. 
In death he is forced to wander the confines of the city. For nearly a thousand years he watches the follies and triumphs of humanity.
In his punishment he encounters the shade of the arch deceiver who had claimed to be his saviour, still plotting and raging.
Then child sees him, and smiles. 
A young woman strikes a deep memory.
As an old woman dies, she tells him his wait is nearly over...

                              Glad you like it. Sorry I'm a bit tardy replying, I've had laptop probs, hopefully solved now though. So I can get back to seeing what happens next...

Interesting. A possible chance at redemption on it's way? 
                              
                              I like the perception of both the world at large as well as his growing self awareness.

Thank you sweetie, wasn't sure at first, but...quite like it now. I've decided to def. do three more. Three altruistic acts he witnesses, no higher purpose, just random acts of brave kindness. 
                              He started out as Guy of Gisbourne would you believe?
