Set in the World of Warcraft Universe, this is a tale about 2 young lovers in the Scarlet Crusade torn apart by fate and death.


Jake is a young and kind-hearted member of the Scarlet Crusade who falls in love with his childhood friend Rachel, but the two of them are eventually torn apart when Jake is killed and raised into undeath, eventually becoming one of the Forsaken.

However, their paths eventually cross yet again...


10. Fate's Farewell



Jake held Rachel’s hand as they walked through Vengeance Pass together. All around them, snowflakes fell as they said a tearful farewell to each other.

Jake was headed for the nearby Forsaken encampment of Venomspite, where he knew he could find shelter and rest.

“Don’t go, Jake, please!” Rachel pleaded with him. “You can’t leave me again, not after you came back!”

“There is no future for us, Rachel,” Jake reminded her softly. “It’s time for you to move on; get a new life. You can’t be happy with me.”

Rachel grabbed Jake’s wrist and held on tightly. “I don’t mind your…condition, Jake! I really don’t. As long as you’re with me.”

“Don’t be foolish, Rachel,” Jake said. “What would people think of you if they saw you with me? The war against the Lich King has only just begun, and I’m sure that there will be people that will never approve of my existence. The Forsaken’s existence. There will always be people like Abbendis.

Rachel averted her eyes from Jake, her face downcast as she realized that what Jake said was the truth.

“As long as you’re with me, you will never be safe. Don’t make this harder than it already is, Rachel…”

Jake cupped Rachel’s face with his hands and planted a kiss on her lips. They held the kiss for a long time before Jake broke away from her. It took all his courage to turn his back on her and start walking away, in the direction of Venomspite.

“Jake, wait!” Rachel called out to him. Jake stopped and turned around to face her.

“Will we see each other again?” She asked. “One day when the Lick King is dead, and all the war is over?

Jake answered without a moment’s hesitation. “Yes, we will see each other again, Rachel. I’ll be waiting for that day. I promise.”

A smile crossed both Rachel and Jake’s lips. “I promise,” Rachel agreed.

Rachel and Jake maintained eye contact, before Rachel, with great difficulty, managed to break away and slowly start walking away in the opposite direction. Rachel kept turning and looking back at Jake, a wistful look in her eyes, her heart longing for him.

Jake remained where he was standing, never budging an inch. He kept his gaze on Rachel as she walked further and further away from him, until she became a tiny figure upon the horizon and eventually she disappeared.

It was only then did tears escape him, rolling down his rotten cheeks and dripping to the pristine white snow at his feet. Jake stood there for several minutes, gazing at the far horizon, until it was time for him to leave as well.

His shoulders drooped with resignation, Jake began the arduous and lonely trek towards Venomspite.

I hope we’ll get to meet again, Rachel, Jake thought. I love you.
