I closed in for the kill. The queen was at my mercy, but no, I did not strike the knockout blow.
So, my students, why did I not strike when the chance arose?
I take it from your silence that you have no idea. The answer is quite simple. We are about destroying souls. In this moment I could’ve hurt one soul, but the overall outcome would’ve been very minimal.
Where as, by planting a time bomb that goes off later, I can destroy two souls and prevent an almighty witness of the enemy.
So class, you need to be aware of the more important fight. The current battle, or the ongoing war.
