Paths to Death - S for Sword

He was a gladiator during the roman times and was famous throughout the region.

He was a fierce fighter but even he was lost to the power of love. His love for his master's daughter. Their's was a doomed love as they both knew that if her family came to know about their love then he would be killed after all he might have been a famous gladiator but he was still their slave.

The month was special as the city was celebrating spring and as every year there had to be a fight between all the top gladiators. 

He fought fiercely and fearlessly and in the end he was crowned the winner. Everyone was happy to see their favourite gladiator win. But his mind was restless and he wanted to see his beloved.

As soon as they reached the house, his lover came to meet him and they embraced each other but their love wasn't a secret any more as a slave girl had seen them and informed their master right away. 

His master called every gladiator to the common room and then asked him to come forward, everyone though it was to honour him but the master took his sword and thrust it through gladiator's neck and yanked it left-right and the head fell off the body. Another love story ended unfinished and in death.
