The Majority of this comic is a voiceover by Black Belt.
Black Belt Life is funny. You start out with limitless potential, but time is always shaving away the possibilities. Every choice you make is the choice not to do a thousand other things. What's important, when all is said and done, is that you made a difference. Your choices, and everything undone, have to mean something. Otherwise, what was the point? I'm lucky that way. My path was already there. I had only to walk it. I often thought even if no one know of the good I had sone with my life, it didn't matter. That it was done is all that counts in the end. But then I died.
Kary slices through Black Belt's arm, leg, and midsection, and his nunchucks go flying.
White Mage Black Belt?
Black Belt And I hadn't gotten to do any of it yet.
