Blood stained my clothes and permeated my skin. I could see my opponent's chest shake with every strained breath, the poison in the air corroding her frail lungs. In shock, I stared as the girl's eyes dimmed. Her ribcage shook one last time as the poison burned its way through. A roaring thunder erupted from all around me, but I couldn't hear them. My guilt surged up, threatening to choke whatever life was left out of me.
I had no idea why I was still alive. The knife in my hand said otherwise.
