Terrible Vengeance

The boy is beginning to understand his roots. No matter how decently he is treated now, his resentment for the damage wrought on his ancestors has to be avenged. As I peer through a small window in an operating theatre, I see a fantasy sequence playing out in his head. He is older now and feels nothing for his victim, a man who had once cared for him. Trampling on him he breaks all his bones and then forces the body through a mincer.

A ghastly vision, nice colours though!

By the way, you've missed the 'w' on 'rought'- I wouldn't correct a policeman's spelling, but as it's you!
