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."

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.

Training up the Baby Tongue

Okay, so I will admit to having a diet free of anything slightly burn-ish. The spiciest thing I cook is chilli con carne sans the chilli, and with a moderate amount of ginger instead.

Trouble is, everything everywhere is full of hotter spices than a splash of ginger.

And I often can’t stand it.

I need to train up to withstand the spicier stuff. And I need to do so in such a way as to not turn me off
