“Why shouldn’t we sentence you to death for the murder you committed?”
Jordan hung his head. “Please have mercy on me. I didn’t have a choice.”
“How do you think your victim felt?”
Jordan stared at the floor. “I am guilty, but I did it to save my child.”
“And did it work?”
“Yes. The blood was the key ingredient. I was able to make the cure. ”
“The life of a child is barely worth the life of a unicorn. Take him away. Six months in the dungeon.”
Jordan wept tears of gratitude. They gave him a light sentence.
