Worry creased Lilith's brow. "I do not know what the Awakening will do for you, for you are truly Cursed by your Father. You could die. You could be forever changed." Caine said, "Even so, a life without Power will not be worth living. I would die without your gifts. I will not live as your Thrall." Lilith loved me, and I knew this. Lilith would do what I asked, though she did not wish it. And so, Lilith, bright-eyed Lilith, Awakened me. She cut herself with a knife bled for me into a bowl. I drank deep. It was sweet. And then I fell into the Abyss. I fell forever, falling into the deepest darkness.
