Challenge #03561-I272: Curing the Cursed

Serial killers always slip up, sooner or later. In this case, it was targeting the daughter of someone very prominent. A daughter who managed to escape before he could "finish the job". The "Past Victims Club" had a way to expose him now, "we were not dead, he left us for dead, but we were just badly hurt."

But some of the survivors are now taking an interest in the dear necromancer's work, and asking to be students. So ones like him get their comeuppance in the future. -- Anon Guest

Some of them are coming to me alive. Alive, but in bad shape. They know "crazy old Zahilde" will not let someone die without true cause.

I have been asked, many times, to curse the boy who loves killing. I should not, and I have refused. To do that is to invite evil into your home, corrupt your good heart, and rot your soul. To do that is to throw aside every good in favour of revenge.

Revenge can kill a good heart, in time. Better by far to heal and mend and make things better. My patients often don't see it that way.
