Subject     A cold day

The winds swept through the fridged temple of paladine as Aedon knelt on
the flagstones. The metal of the symbol of paladine was freezing to his
skin, but still he knelt, relishing the pain for his God. 

From the temple, a priest watched him, slowly shaking his head. Aedon's
worship boarderd on fanatisism. He had once beat a fellow acolyte because of
a dissenting opinion of sacred texts. The priest walked out to Aedon. 

"My son. Day after day, you have tormented yourself. And why? Paladine does
not require such pain-laden devotion."

Aedon didn't even look up.

"But I require it, Father." 

The priest sighed, looking down at Aedon, kneeling in the snow. 

"My son, why do you seek such violence in Paladine's service? surely a life
of healing would better suit the Gods needs?"

Aedon seemed to flinch at the words, although he did not move. 

"There are many who are called to violence by our enemies, Father. Paladine
has called me to right the balance somewhat. The fact that many others serve
him by healing is of no consequence to my actions."

The priest looked out over the fresh snow that coated the grounds.

"And you will not be convinced that your path is contrary to what is right?"


Aedon stared straight ahead.

"No father."

The Priest sighed, and walked back into the temple. Outside, Aedon continued
to kneel in the snow.
