I sit here, alone in my thoughts, the weight of guilt heavy on my shoulders. The memories of that fateful day haunt me relentlessly, a constant reminder of the consequences of our dangerous lifestyle. Teodor lost his mother that day, and I lost a part of myself.

Regret and Remorse

The sound of battle still echoes in my mind as I replay the events over and over again. If only I had been more careful, if only I had anticipated the demon's attack sooner. But regret is a useless emotion; it changes nothing.

Moving Forward

Teodor looks at me with eyes filled with both love and sadness. He misses his mother dearly but finds solace in our companionship. As much as it hurts to see him grow up without her guidance, I must be strong for him.

A Father's Responsibility

Being a single parent is not easy; balancing demon hunting with raising Teodor requires all my strength and patience. He may test my limits at times with his mischievous antics, but deep down he just craves attention and affection.

Dealing With Loss

Shizuka remains by my side through thick and thin despite his eccentricities that can sometimes grate on my nerves like sandpaper against stone. His presence provides some comfort amidst the chaos we face daily.

Facing Demons - Both Literal And Figurative

As we continue our journey as travelers who kill demons for profit, each battle brings us closer to redemption or further into darkness depending on how you view it. But one thing is certain: we cannot undo what has been done. We can only move forward together as comrades bound by bloodshed and shared experiences.

In conclusion, Despite everything that has transpired, I find solace in knowing that Teodor grows stronger each day under our watchful eye, And Shizuka reminds me to never lose sight of humor amid despair. Together we march onwards, Facing demons within ourselves along with those outside waiting to strike once more.

May hope guide us towards brighter days ahead."
