I just posted a 9th chapter leading up to my climax in the 11th chapter of a story onto a forum. I sent it to a friend because he had given me some suggestions, and he didn't like how, at the end of the chapter, my main antagonist expresses remorse for killing his best friend in cold blood to gain his power (it's a magic/fantasy story). I disagreed with him under the idea that he was friends with the guy, but the guy won't help him do what he wants, and so the antagonist now sees him as a source from which he can gain energy for his main goal. The paragraphs in question follow: As you can tell, the guy is also a little psychopathic. Anyway, what do you think? Should I get rid of that last sentence he states?
