After the long hours of the day he would go too the Stormwind City Cemetery and find his usual seat. He is seen sitting on the cold stones path as he looks over the sea of burial stones that extend for some distance. The man sits solemnly and alone as he stares out blankly in thought. He occasionally looks down at his old Military Insignia, Reading it and trying too forget. He will read it over and over again silently, Each time he analyzes it he seems confused and frustrated. The Insignia will always read "Lieutenant Laman Dirkhaven, 81st Infantry And Intelligence Division." Although now his Stormwind Watch Insignia will read "Corporal". He looks across the massive graveyard and stops on one particular grave marker.
"Here we remember the 81st Infantry and Intelligence Division, For their valor and sacrifice in the Icy Borean Tundra. Their Commander Lugaid Dirkhaven Will always be remembered for his bravery against unfavorable odds.
He reads this too himself silently as the wind blows and slightly sways his Watch Insignia upon his right shoulder plate. A single tear rolls down his face and falls too his hand. He examines the tear but he had forgotten what it was too feel sad and too cry. He was a soldier, The only survivor. He has no family and no friends too support him if he falls. He uncorks his flask and takes a long sip from it. He needed too forget, And alcohol has always been close at hand since his return home.
After some time and the flask had been depleted of its contents, Laman eventually stands too leave. He pays his respects too his fallen subordinates and his father. He walks the streets of Stormwind on his way home, Always glancing around trying too make up memories that never existed. He smiles as two children run past him and into their home as their mother scolds them for being out too late. He continues too walk until he finally comes across his small home.
Laman enters his home and begins drinking from the nearest bottle. He had just woke from his four month coma when he was stabbed on duty. Although, Peaceful sleep was not what he found during this time. Only the recollection of the past. It tore him up inside and ultimately led him too question his future. He looks around the room, There was no decoration, Just empty walls. Only a work table, a chair and his bed. Next too his bed lay his sword and a length of rope. He approaches his bed and removes the heavy plate from his body and places them out of the way and picks up the length of rope. From his experience he expertly ties a noose and stares down at it in his hands after completing it. His eyes blank and cold, He had no one... No family... No Wife or children... Only his work.
He finishes his second bottle of ale and again looks down on the noose in thought. Moments later light shimmers faintly across his night robes and the noose slowly breaks down into charred pieces of rope. He would wait too see what is too come, For a soldier the future is always uncertain. He would leave no friends behind if he were too make such a decision, He only knows those who hate his existence for being a Watchman, He also thinks of the families of his fallen comrades and other subordinates. How they hated him as he himself told them of the fate of his Brothers in arms. It was his duty. He opens the window of his home and drops the charred remains of the rope into the gutter.
He slides into his bed and closes his eyes, He will make his decision soon.
