long story short (literally): hero has gone away in order to receive training and his family are killed. i need this to be a really traumatic scene but have two ways of going about it. which do you think would be worse/more traumatic to the reader. I would appreciate reasoning or alternative ideas, thanks. the hero returns but does not understand his abilites well enough yet to use them to save his family. or The hero arrives home to find his family killed, having just attained an ability which could have saved them had he been there.
