Unfinished business

'This book will never be finished.'
'It will! You just watch.'

2000 years later, the book was still being rewritten and argued over. She had read history was written by the victors. In that moment, there seemed to be a clear winner in that moment who would, possibly, last for a few years more. After that, the fog grew thick and the screams dissolved into each other.

The book said many things, depended on which book you were referring to, when it was written and who had written it. There were many stories in it and countless more left out.

What was indisputable, were the scars. There may have been winners and losers, but there were definitely people on every side of every situation who were scarred.

Deeply.

The same scars -- deep gouges in flesh, deeper in memory -- would make sure the book would never be finished.

There would always be, at least, one more story.
