The good suffer, the evil flourish, and all that is mortal passes away, Magnus said. I want more than that, said Will. You made me want more than that. You showed me I was only ever cursed because I had chosen to believe myself so. You told me there was possibility, meaning. And now you would turn your back on what you created."
