Sacrifice: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #51

This week, the prompt words for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge are ‘Future’ and ‘Give’.

I let my mind wander for a while, and kept coming back to Maddison Wood, one of my characters. The prompt words inspired me to write a haiku about the sacrifice she makes to save a stranger. The him, for those familiar with my work, is Donovan (who is tortured during the Hympe Trials).
