"If you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you." – Nietzsche
Adikar strode purposefully to the edge of the pit and stared into its consuming blackness. He could sense it churning in its malevolence and feel the evil which seeped from it like a noxious vapour withering all in its path.
Shadows from the pit swarmed around him, threatening to topple him into it.
Raising his arm with a sweeping arc he illuminated the darkness dispelling the shadows. "Enough!" he commanded.
The darkness of the void gazed back at him, piercing him with its uncontainable hatred. "I have waited for you. I knew you would come. In the end, all come to me."
"I have come to end it."
"I cannot be destroyed."
"You must be stopped."
"Can you be a greater destroyer than I?"
"It will end. I shall end it."
"Then you must become Death. Where you tread the ground shall be barren and where your shadow falls life shall wither. You cannot both destroy me and contain me."

"Whoever battles with monsters had better see that it does not turn him into a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."– Nietzsche
