In your absence, your people have flourished and excelled, in order to make themselves worthy of you when you decided to return. ” Sharyar spoke sharply, “You are going to kill them. Womankind cannot be trusted. My intention before leaving was to kill every woman in the kingdom, if you recall, but I have decided instead to be measured in my dislike.
