She blamed herself, "Only if I haven't confessed, he would never marry me and he would have lived." She witnessed her beloved being torn into pieces in front of her eyes. The tears in her eyes couldn't express her remorse. Her voice couldn't stop the violence. They let her free only to hold his frozen soulless body.
