Everyone has that one moment in life where they realize that someday that walk is going to end. You know that walk of life. Usually it’s when you are old and gray, or sick but you know that moment is coming. Sooner or later, it’s always coming.
For us hunters, that moment happens when we sign our life away to the cause of protecting the Clandestine Providence. We know we will likely die young, very few hunters make it past 50. If they are lucky they stop hunting and they live a normal life. My father and Emilio are the oldest two hunters I know.
I walk everyday knowing it could be my last. I could run into a vamp who’s stronger and smarter than me. I could run into a werebear who just over powers me and there’s nothing I can do. I could be chasing something through the streets and get hit by a car.
So I learned a long time ago that you can’t let your fears guide you. You have to live everyday to the fullest. No wasted minutes. But I have also learned that spending time with the ones you love, even if it’s just sitting in front of the television doing nothing is not a wasted moment. As long as it’s what you want to be doing and you are with the ones you love, it’s not wasted.
So live your life unafraid and unwasteful because it could end just like that.
