 It started out rather like many other days had. A good-sized village had hired me to destroy the troll that had been terrorizing them. I didn't ask more than I normally do: a place to sleep, food to eat, and enough silver to tide me over until I reached the next village.

 

I had bested the troll, as I always had, and had it backed against the rocks, its club broken several yards away. But then...I did something I had never done before.

 

I looked it in the eyes. And I saw something there. Something disturbing.

 

All my life, I had been so sure of my role in life. I was the hero, I was the one who traveled the realms slaying monsters, defeating dragons, and protecting those in need.

 

But today, when I looked the troll in the eyes, I saw myself in them. And not the myself that I saw. But rather, as he saw me. In his eyes, *I* was the monster that had to be defeated. And I can not say that he was wrong.
