End of all woes

The ecstasy on William's blood-stained face as he was about to be beheaded in front of a huge crowd of gawking spectators, the hope of seeing the rays of the sun tear apart the darkness of the unending, gloomy night, the anticipation of the fragrance of his long-lost love, his aching for the gentle kiss that reminded him of dew-topped rose petals, the sounds of her tinkling laughter every time he played with her silken tresses, they all masked the tears of blood that he shed in his fight for her and the immense suffering he put up to bring justice to her death. In a moment of trance, this soldier realized that few seconds from now, he would be hers in death too, just as he'd never quit being hers in life. He couldn't contain within himself the rapturous exaltation coupled with relief that he was going to become one with her... finally!

So he'll become one with her...by being cut into two pieces xD At least he's looking forward to it.

Yeah... but this is just my interpretation of how far true love can go... and I believe it indeed can go very far!

I couldn't imagine the terror of the moments before a beheading. At least he was thinking about his love rather than what was to come.

Yeah... as they say, your entire life flashes in front of your eyes... moments before you die.
